How to calculate your baby’s shoe size
When buying new shoes for baby, parents often worry about the size. Babies cannot tell you if the shoe fits properly or not. This is even more of a concern when buying shoes online, without even trying on the shoes. Let us look at the main stages of development of your baby's feet and how to calculate the shoe size quickly and correctly.
How important is it to select the right shoe size! Baby's feet must have enough space to move freely; if shoes are too short or narrow, toes will be pinched into an unnatural position that will in time have a negative effect on posture. The bones in your baby's feet are still growing. After the first year of life when your baby grows very quickly, his feet will grow in specific stages that are however not the same for all children and depend on many different factors and not the least, genetic factors.
Just think that from 1 to 3 years of age your child's feet should be checked once every 6-8 weeks, and from 3 to 6 years of age feet grow two to three sizes a year, and during school age one or two sizes a year. That is why it is so important to monitor how your child's feet are growing, to ensure that he is not wearing shoes that might make him stumble or prevent proper physical and motor development.
