First Shoes For Newborn Babies
I don’t know about you, but when my precious babies where born their feet were so tiny and delicate all I did for weeks was to feel and touch them and be amazed by this perfect creation that I had made.
Evan my first son was a good birth weight, but Rio and Bryn my twins were very small only 6lbs each, but from memory all their feet were cute and tiny. You never dream that something so cute and small will grow and grow and eventually you will be thinking about their first shoes.
If you are lucky to have a baby born in the summer then those first few months are easy as baby socks are all you tend to put on their feet.
But winter babies can be a little more of a challenge, with the cold winters we have here in the UK their tiny little feet can get very cold indeed.
Newborn babies spend so much time in people’s arms, sleeping or in a buggy or pushchair so bare feet or just socks are always a good first choice.
But when you feel they need something extra on their feet, either for a little protection or to keep their feet warmer then the search begins for the perfect first shoes!
What you need is a shoe that has a soft upper part and also a soft sole, knitted booties or crochet shoes are always lovely and do the job well.
Our first shoes for babies aren’t knitted but are made from good quality leather and allow your baby’s feet to breath easily and offer a greater protection than knitted booties.
Our smallest size is 0 - 6 months, this is possibly the first leather shoe you may buy for your baby so you want to be assured of the quality and safety standards of that shoe.
Snuggle Feet shoes are handmade making them an ideal first baby shoe and really are the next thing to bare feet, they also fully conform to all EU safely standards.
