Re: How often, on average, do babies go up a shoe size?

I think there is really no way of knowing. My oldest got her first pair of shoes around 10 months when she started walking. I got her a size 4, she fit in those well until she was 2 years old then we got her a 5 which she quickly outgrew and skipped 2 sizes and went into a 7. She wore the 7 for over a year and now at almost 5 years old she is only in an 8.5.

My 2nd outgrows shoes much more quickly. Right now she wears the same size shoe as my oldest (my 2nd is almost 3) and she tends to outgrow shoes every 6 months.

Usually every 6 months until about 3 years old.

ETA: that is a full shoe size, not a half size. If you go to Stride Rite, they tell you the shoe size that is about a half size of growing room.

Re: How often, on average, do babies go up a shoe size?

When we went to Stride Rite, the lady said they grow 1/2 size every 6 weeks, a full size every 3 mos.

This same lady said to get my son a 5 back in May though...and he's still wearing a 4 or 9-12 mos. in See Kai Run shoes. Plenty of growing room left, too.

Re: How often, on average, do babies go up a shoe size?

My son just went from a 6 at 15 months to an 8 at 18 months. He's outgrown 3 pairs of shoes in 3 months. I think it depends on the child though, and growth seems to happen in unpredictable spurts. DS was a 5 for 3 months and a 6 for about 3 weeks.

This really isn't a question you can answer because each child is individual in how they grow. My DD wil be 3 in December and just went into a 6 about 2 months ago. At your sons age she was wearing a 1 and moving into a 2

Re: How often, on average, do babies go up a shoe size?

It varies by kid. Last time they were checked my kids were 2.5 and 4.5. My 2.5 ds was a size 8 and my 4.5 dd was a size 9. My dd's feet grew slowly and it seems like ds's feet have some major spurts. My son is a whole year ahead of her in shoe size and might even catch up soon but it seems like compared to others his feet are not all that big either. My youngest is 11 months and won't be walking for a while but her feet seem really small so she will probably be like my oldest dd. I don't think she is even a 4 yet.
