    Von, it's just not worth it until they're really up and walking and needing protection from the ground outside. I think they say they shouldn't be fitted for their "first shoe" until they have been properly walking for at least 6 weeks. If your girl's not in a hurry then don't stress about it. She'll end up with shoe fetishes later in life without a doubt... we all do!

    Though I have to say, it is bloody annoying to go searching all of the aisles at Woolies to find the shoes that he slipped off and dropped out of the pram
    oh I hate that, the girl I work with who has autism hates shoes too, and she always looses hers as well, I am forever going up to the counter and leaving my name and number for missing shoes.. ](*,)

    A lot of the kids speciality shoe stores have baby shoes that have a squishy rubber sole (can't think of the brand!). I've also seen hand made suede ones at the Berwick market that would be good too.

    ShuShu's are awesome. We just got back from Sydney, and purchased 2 pairs from the Paddington Markets $20 each pair, from the lady that makes them.

    I have her number if anyone wants it. she doesn't have a website atm, but is contactable by phone and fax

    Must say I don't bother much with shoes for kids under 18mths, I find that they take them off and lick them rather than wear them. So far Jessica hasn't worn a pair adn she is 9 and a half mths.

    Jemma is 2 and 4mths and in a size7. All my kids have had puffy feet, high instep and finding shoes was very hard, especially as they also have wide ffet, and lots of little girls shoes are skniiy

    Ryley is starting to not like his shoes anymore.. Hmmm...

    Maybe this is stopping him from being confident in walking like you said Ambah... something t o ponder

    It could very well be why he doesnt like them Pee... I think it is a bit harder for them to learn to balance in as well, when they probably need to be learning how to balance on their barefeet first iykwim?

    Maybe just put shoes on Ryley when he goes outside, but when he is indoors leave him in barefeet or socks with grips on the bottoms...

    I entered too. How cool are they??? My mum is frog mad, so she would love Zander to have a pair of the frog ones!

    I think I might actually buy some as well, Zander always squirms out of his socks, so these will keep them on!
