We all know that kids are growing very fast. When I talk to my friends they all say the same thing:”I just cannot believe that my little boy/little girl is not little anymore”. We notice how fast they grow looking at their clothing – T-shirt’s sleeves are getting too short, long trousers became shorts. The same thing is with shoes, but it is more difficult to notice. Our small kids won’t let us know when shoes are too small for them. That is why we have to care about it and check it pretty often.
As a shoe making company we advice to measure your baby feet every six to eight weeks. Do so until the age of 4. Your baby’s shoe size will be growing about 2 sizes a year during this period. Once your kid hits 4, you can measure his shoe size every 3 months.
Don’t know how to measure your baby’s feet? It is pretty easy and you can do it at home. You will need a sheet of paper, a pencil or pen and a tape measure. Have your child stand on a piece of paper. Mark at the heel and the longest toe on both feet, making sure toes are flat and not curled. Measure the distance between the marks.Remember to measure the length of both feet. If one foot is larger, fit to the larger foot. Allow no more than 1.5cm extra for growth room.
If you would like to check the shoe size of your baby, you can print out at 100% our measure sheet.
It is good to remember that like an adult’s, babies’ feet are slightly bigger at the end of the day. It is the best time to check a shoe’s size.
Enjoy your children while you can as they grow very fast!
