Re: My baby girl has tiny feet- advice?

My son had small feet until he started walking. My friend called him "carnie feet" for a long time. He was in a 3-3.5 at about 12 months, but now at 2, is nearly a 7.5 -8, depending on the shoe. My theory is that they don't need big feet before they walk, so their feet are generally smaller. Granted, genetics also plays a role in that too. If she's not walking, put her in Robeez or the like. And then softer soles until she's walking well enough.

The advice on this is conflicting. I kept him in Robeez (well, target brand, I liked them better than robeez. They were roomier) until about 13-14 months and then moved him to shoes with softer soles. Stride Rite has some good ones and another one of my favorite brands has soles that are really really flexible, and that's See Kai Run.
