When your little one starts to take her first steps, it’s time find the perfect pair of baby girl shoes for her feet. She’s going to want to explore more of the world as she learns how to walk—and she will do better while wearing the right pair.
According to most pediatricians, including the American Pediatric Association, babies will need footwear once they start learning to walk.
Experts strongly advise parents to be meticulous when selecting shoes for their babies because they will have a significant impact on the development of their feet.
Size, style, and price are not the only factors to consider. Parents need to consider their babies’ comfort and safety as well.
So, whether you have a nine-month-old infant or a 2-year old toddler, you have to be selective when searching for the right pair of shoes.
Here are a few tips to help you buy the proper pre-walker and toddler shoes online.
1. Get Shoes With Soft And Flexible Soles And Pads
Both pre-walking and walking baby girl shoes should have flexible soles. That means you should be able to feel the toes through them.
Flexible soles should have thin, protective soles that will offer enough protection and support to help the feet develop properly.
2. High-Quality Materials
For your baby’s comfort, look for shoes that are made with breathable materials such as genuine and vegan leather, cloth, or canvas. Avoid shoes made of plastic and make sure they are non-toxic and safe.
3. Refer To The Shop’s Size Guide
Before choosing a pair of shoes, measure your child’s feet. Keep in mind that each shop may follow different sizing standards. That’s why you need to always refer to the size guide provided by them.
Choose a size that won’t fit too snugly. The shoes should have some wriggle room so that your baby will feel comfortable wearing them.
