Baby shoes are not only protective accessories! Factually you yourself are your baby’s feet. However, shoes provide them with warmth, comfort and support. A lot of questions are commonly raised enquiring whether new born babies need shoes or whether shoes are bad for newborn babies. Well, a baby in the crib or in the pram is generally considered to already be in a protected and warm environment. Their tiny feet require freedom of movement to develop well and strong. So, it is often recommended that their feet be left free of shoes.
The Primary Kinds of Baby Shoes
Occasionally, however, when you are going outside with a newborn, or even when it’s winter or chilly, safeguarding the baby from cold is essential. That is where baby pram shoes or crib shoes come in.
Here’s some great information about different types of baby shoes that helpwould help you as a shopping guide:
- Crib/Pram Shoes: Pram shoes are shoes with extremely soft soles, which are designed with the purpose of keeping a baby’s feet warm. These should be extremely lightweight and flexible. Crochet baby shoes, soft baby boots etc. are a few examples.
- Cruiser Baby Shoes/Pre-Walking Shoes:When the baby is inclined to sit up and reach out occasionally for toys, etc. just out of arm’s reach or even crawling, that’s when a baby is supported with cruiser shoes. These shoes are ultra flexible and again, soft sole baby shoes. Many a times, a baby takes his or her first few shy steps in these cruiser shoes.
- Walking Shoes:Walking shoes are mostly hard soled but comfortable and flexible enough to not interfere with the natural process of the baby’s development. Walking shoes protect the feet of the baby from scratches, hurtful objects on the floor, pathway or garden and provide support to the heels and toes for walking.
- Running Shoes:Once your baby is quite the walker, you’ll notice him/her naturally making runs. That’s when you upgrade your baby’s shoe rack to include running shoes. Running baby shoes have grips on the soles and flexible front covers to allow maximum freedom of feet movement.
