One of the biggest milestones that parents wait for are those first steps. Those cute little wobbly steps usually taken in some carefully selected and adorable shoes! You wait to see them walk and then, before you know it, they are running all over the place! However, did you know that babies can learn how to walk just as well and sometimes, even better without big heavy shoes?
Here are a few tips for those first few steps:
- Allow your child to practice their steps barefoot whenever possible. It helps promote their natural gait and balance.
- When choosing walking shoes for your new stepper, choose light and flexible shoes like the ones made by See Kai Run!
- Make sure that you get a proper size and fit for your baby’s feet. This will be very important for their balance and confidence!
Remember, all of those boots, sandals and sneakers are amazingly cute, but you don’t wait to affect those natural first steps.
Do you remember your baby’s first steps or are you still waiting for them?
