Your child’s feet are growing almost visibly! To make sure the shoes fit right, just remember a few things.
Make sure the heel is adjacent to the back of the shoe.
Keep the sole very relaxed.
Press slightly on your thumb to check if there is approximately one inch between your fingers and the end of the shoe.
If your child is very small, open your shoes as high as possible and push your foot forward as far away as possible.
If you can insert your finger into a space that stays between the heel and the inside back of the shoe, it 's the right size.
Don 't forget to try your right and left shoes because often baby feet are a little different from each other.
When to buy new shoes
Baby legs are constantly changing. It is important to monitor their growth, which is often the case at leaps.
As a rule, new boots should be purchased:
1 to 3 years every 40 days, approximately 2 months
3 to 6 years about every 3-4 months
6 to 10 years about every 4-5 months
At least two types of shoes are recommended this season:
High, with insulating sole, suitable for cold and rain; It 's all right if they 're waterproof.
lighter, with flexible sole and top, suitable for heated premises, for long hours spent at home.
In autumn and spring it is not recommended to move directly from boots to open shoes or vice versa.
Protect your baby 's feet from large temperature swings with medium-weight shoes made from light leather with leather or lining canvases.
Until the age of 2, especially when a child starts crawling, closed-toe sandals are ideal for protecting and supporting a foot in high heels.
From age 2 or more, these more protective styles, which are good for when your child is engaged in more active movements, can be alternated with sandals that are more open on the sock and heel.
At any age avoid shy, without a belt on your heel, because they fatigue your feet and interfere with movement. Your child can easily lose them when travelling or having a trip.
Foot are the part of the body that sweats harder than any other. Do you know why?
There are about 200 sweat glands per cm ². Children sweat more than adults. It 's a natural fact you can learn to manage by doing a few simple steps.
Once you 've removed your boots, let them dry from the outside, keep them away from the direct sunlight that can lead to their fading, and to heat sources such as a hairdryer and radiators that can cause them to curl and stiffness.
A bit of newspaper can be useful for reducing the amount of moisture inside shoes and keeping them in good shape.
Let your child wear at least two pairs of shoes per season, alternating them to prevent bacteria and microorganisms from multiplying.
Alternate and erase arch supports and practical removable shoe insole.
A good habit is to allow children to wear different shoes when they leave the house and others at home, choosing lighter shoes for the home.
