Its really simple; above all, I want my baby to happy, healthy and comfortable! I don't know about the rest of the world but I don't wear shoes if I don't have to, especially now after having a baby, my feet seem to have gone up half a size and just can't seem to take the abuse they were accustomed to. I only wear shoes when I really need to, and its only fair that the same should apply for my baby too. She will wear shoes when she really needs to, which is when she starts walking outdoors. If you read the article you will see my reasons listed there for why baby shoes aren't the best for their little feet and how they can hinder their feet development. Baby shoes are are nice for photo shoots but are really not necessary aside from that.
So far my little one has two pairs of shoes, both of them were gifts and I'm really happy that they are both large enough that she will still fit into them in the months ahead when she starts to walk around. Until then her feet are bare and free!
In the meantime I am obsessed with Trumpette socks and I'll be posting about them shortly!
