Sherry & I both are February babies but my mom tells me that unlike Sherry I was a very late walker.
Walking is a big-big milestone in a babies life & super joyous moment for parents. It is so thrilling to see your little one cruise around the house holding furniture & walk like a drunk man bouncing, tipping & wobbling.
For the first 12 months of my daughter’s life, she was either bare feet or wrapped in footsies or just plain socks. But as she started to walk I bought the famous soft-bottomed baby shoes from @soulslings.
1. These shoes are ideal for indoor use & are an excellent way to keep little feet warm when the temperature drops.
2. Their SPECIAL SHERPA INSOLES assure soft cushioning on hard surfaces. Their trademark soles are made of soft and pliable FAUX SUEDE that grips well and stretches easily.
3. They are made of soft breathable fabric, are easy to slip on and have a gentle elastic band to keep them securely fastened.
4. A baby’s feet are in a developing process, it has fat padding under the arches. A soft sole adapts to these arches and supports foot development during early walking.
MY EXPERIENCE – My early walker could cruise around in these flexible, non-skid shoes on tile flooring or slippery surfaces. She could walk holding on to her push toy (not a walker) and practice balance & co-ordination all day long. The fabric is soft, flexible & provides good traction on to the surface easily. It has no fancy decorative item/ fasteners that can pose a choking hazard. The only thing that dissappointed me a bit was the insoles – though they provide appropriate cushioning but they also make baby’s feet sweaty in summers especially if there is no air conditioning in the room.
SIZING – Babies feet swell and are often bigger at the end of the day. Shoes purchased in the morning might feel tight in the evening.
For the perfect fit & room to grow, always add up to 1/2” to your child’s foot measurement to find appropriate soft sole size.
The soft sole can be easily checked for perfect size by grabbing some of the material on to the top of the foot when the child is wearing them. If the fabric can’t be gathered, the shoe might be too tight for the baby.
CARE – They can be spot cleaned with a soft moist cloth or just like soul carriers, they can be washed by hand or machine (delicate cycle, low heat, gentle detergent & line dry in shade).
