Dressing up babies can be a fun and enjoyable experience for parents, and nothing completes a baby's outfit quite like a pair of adorable shoes. Just like adult shoes, baby shoes come in a variety of designs, shapes, and sizes, giving you plenty of options to choose from when it comes to dressing up your little one. Whether you're looking for cute and colourful Vans-like sneakers or stylish and comfortable sandals, you can find a wide range of footwear options for your baby boy or girl at Mothercare. 

Baby Booties to Support Your Child’s Growing Feet

One of the most adorable accessories for babies is baby booties. Not only do they add a cute touch to any outfit, but they also provide a range of benefits for your little one. Baby booties can help keep your baby's feet warm and protected, especially during colder months or when walking on rough surfaces. They can also prevent your baby from slipping and sliding on smooth floors, which can be a safety hazard. Additionally, baby booties can aid in the development of your infant’s growing feet, as they provide a snug fit and support for their delicate toes and ankles. At Mothercare, we offer a wide selection of baby booties for both boys and girls so that you can find the perfect pair for your little one. 

Baby Shoes for their First Steps

Baby shoes are a great option for protecting your little one's feet as they start to crawl and take their first steps. They also provide warmth and insulation during colder or rainier months. Baby shoes come in various designs, from classic soft-soled shoes to more structured options with added support for new walkers. Unlike baby booties, usually made from softer materials like cloth or knit, baby shoes can be made with sturdier materials such as leather or rubber soles.

When choosing the right pair of shoes for your baby, it is important to ensure they fit properly and have a soft, flexible sole for natural foot movement and development. Choosing materials that are breathable, such as jersey or canvas, can also prevent your baby's feet from getting too hot and sweaty. Additionally, you may opt for shoes with a secure closure to prevent them from slipping off or becoming a tripping hazard. Always keep in mind your baby's specific needs, such as foot conditions or sensory sensitivities, and choose shoes that accommodate those needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Baby Shoes and Booties

When should my baby start wearing baby shoes

Typically, it is recommended that you wait until your baby starts walking before purchasing baby shoes. However, if you choose to buy shoes beforehand, it's important to select soft, flexible options and limit their use to outdoor activities for short periods. If you're looking for shoes to complement an outfit, consider baby booties and those with elasticated or touch-close fastenings for a comfortable fit that won't restrict your baby's movement.

How to measure my baby’s shoe size? 

To measure your baby's shoes or bootie size, you will need a soft measuring tape and your infant’s foot. Begin by laying the measuring tape flat on the ground and placing your baby's foot on top, with their heel touching the end. Gently stretch the tape to the tip of their longest toe, and take note of the measurement in either inches or centimetres.

It's important to measure both feet, as they may be slightly different sizes. Use the larger measurement to determine your baby's correct bootie or shoe size. Keep in mind that different brands may have slightly different size charts, so it's always a good idea to check the specific brand's size chart before making a purchase. Additionally, if your baby's foot measurement falls between two sizes, it's usually best to go with the larger size to ensure a comfortable fit.

Should babies wear shoes indoors? 

Yes, you can allow your baby to wear shoes indoors, but there are some important considerations. According to experts, it is recommended that babies spend as much time as possible barefoot to promote proper physical development. If you decide to put shoes on your baby, it's important to allow them to take them off indoors so they can safely play and move around freely.
