My 7month old refuses to wear shoes and sock. I live in Michigan and it's to cold to go without socks and shoes. Any ideas on how I can keeo them on him while we are out?

Try buying a sturdy, heavy pair of tights with lines or something on them. Put them on under his pants, and they will serve multiple purposes. They will give him added insulation during these COLD MI winters, and under a pair of pants, they look just like socks (just not pink or purple for your boy) and he will not be able to take them off! I find it hard to even find shoes to fit my 7 month old's fat feet so we have yet to put shoes on her for an extended period of time. I just put socks on her and bundle her up and off we go! Hope this helps!

I've done Robeez and the ones at Target. There other knock-off out there, but my kids couldn't take off the ones from Target.

I live in WI and I totaly feel what your saying!  We don't have shoes for our son, but I found a pair of slippers that seems to work well when traveling.  Mostly if we know were going to be outside much he just stays in sleepers.  They have some with textures on the bottom so they don't slip when standing, and seem to be nice and warm for him.

Go with the Robeez... they are awesome shoes. My son will let them on all day with no problems. Good Luck!

Robeez and socks...
It's not so much a problem with my little one, but my 2 year old HATES socks... We use her Robeez as slippers, and that seems to help.

Ohh I have the same problem. My daughter kicks and pulls her socks off all the time. I even put the long knee high socks on and that doesnt work. I do put her velacro shoes on pretty tight put that doesnt even work sometimes. haha I wish I can help, put im in the same situation. and we live in Ny so its pretty cold here too. I can say you may want to put the little pajama pants on under his jeans, the ones with the feet.

Buy robeez or the imitation brand ministar at target. They can't kick them off.
