It’s great to see your child take his/her first steps and you may get excited to buy a pair of shoes for your little one. But hold on! Before splurging on some fancy shoes, you need to know if your kid is ready for them.
Even if you baby, it is advisable to get him/her shoes immediately. The sensory development needs to take place with the child to know how exactly it feels to walk. Slowly the kid will have a better grip and won’t fall down as often. A lot of parents that putiing shoes on will make the child walk faster but this actually hampers the growth. Kids need to learn to balance and walking barefoot is the best way to go. While your child starts walking, the first thing you need to buy is mittens. They are available in different designs and colors, and should be the first “shoe” for your baby.
While your child begins to walk you must also keep a lookout for certain foot-related problems.
