To each his own. I don't parent your kids and you don't parent mine. I never say anything because it isn't my business but it isn't that I don't have an opinion on it.
Whatever.
If you aren't doing anything else to keep the baby's feet warm while outside I'd agree. But when you're walking around a grocery store ... it's climate controlled. I personally don't put shoes on my 6 month old, and I even took him out without socks the other day ... but he was bundled right against me in the wrap and while I was walking outside in the cold he was zipped INSIDE my coat. That kid's warmer than me, so I don't worry that much about his feet. While actually outside in the cold I either have him bundled in the wrap against me or in his snowsuit or both, we don't even own shoes for the kid. And I'm kinda glad too, I can't even imagine the $$$ I would have shelled out already, the kid's wearing 12-24mo socks.
