Kids are growing very fast!

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.


First Baby Shoes

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!

Do we know everything about addiction? | First Baby Shoes

Is is a problem only in USA?

Let’s try to think about addiction in a different way.
I am not sure if the content of this film is correct or not, but I am sure it is worth watching.  If we had more information and knowledge, we could guide our children in a good way. I know that GOOD WAY means something different for everyone, but we all want our children to be happy, right?

5 minutes video why people addict to drugs.

Hope we can create the connection between families and friends around us.
Have a good weekend 🙂

How to use a a newspaper | First Baby Shoes

Hi there,

Today I want to share with you a very life-changing tip for feeding your baby. Normally your baby eats sitting on the high baby chair. Probably you bought the chair encouraged by the shop clerk who was so supportive and sounded as the most experienced parent ever and told you    ‘With this chair feeding is so easy, no mess at all’ , but believe me, there is no chair like this, the mess while feeding is almost inevitable.

dropping food

Probably once you cleaned up after your baby’s meal, you decided  to feed baby more carefully. But I know you failed it. There is no way to do it more carefully. This is impossible! What you can do?


Take a newspaper. Just spread it under your baby’s high chair before starting a meal. It takes a moment to do it, but thanks to it cleaning after meal will take you only 5 seconds. After eating you just need to fold the newspaper with all the food which fell down on it and throw it. This is really stress FREE method for everyone. No worries that the kitchen floor is dirty, no need to clean the floor at all.  This is eco friendly and practical method as well. A newspaper brings you the latest news and helps you during your meal time 🙂 So simple! So brilliant!

If you like it, please share this tip with your friends !

Have a nice weekend  and see you soon:)

How do I bath my baby ? | First Baby Shoes

Hi there!

Probably you all know how to hold your baby or wash your baby. While bathing, hold your baby’s neck by one hand and use another hand for wiping or cleaning your baby. Of course we should use clean cotton wool, and gently clean baby up. Those How-Tos are not so interesting and many sites tell you how to do it 😉

I have a good tip to calm down your baby during bathing. This method really works, I guess even more than keeping talking to your baby. My tip is really simple. Prepare two cotton wools and put both in a bath to make them wet and warm. Then use one to wash your baby and the other one to cover baby`s belly. Right after you do it, baby will calm down. If not, please let me know;) Anyway, I think each baby has his own way to relax, so you just need to find it out. Hope this method helps you as well.

Have a good weekend !

How my baby learnt to walk | First Baby Shoes

Hello again, I am a father of two lovely girls !

Today I would like to introduce you how my daughter started walking. One day she could stand by herself with our support. We were holding her hands to keep her balance.  She could also stand up by herself with keeping her hands on the carton box. Carton box was really nice for her to experiment with her balance. The box was pretty big, almost reaching to her chest. After few minutes of playing with a carton box, she started pushing it and walking. That was the moment “WOW! she walked alone! ” . Of course after few seconds she fell down, because her hands slipped from the box 🙂

I think each baby has his own pace to start walking, so you don’t need to worry about your baby, even if your friend’s baby who is same age already started walking a few month ago. My baby’s fist walk was with a carton box, but your baby may invent more unique way 😉

Thank you for your support.

Learning to walk | First Baby Shoes

Learning to walk is one of the greatest achievements in your baby’s life. Many parents are anxious about when it will happen. Most babies get up and go when they’re around 14 or 15 months. Don’t worry if your baby takes a little longer. Remember that every baby learns to walk at his own pace. Some children don’t walk until they are 17 months or 18 months old.

If your baby is doing any of the following, walking is not far behind:

  • Rolling around
  • Crab walking
  • Scooting
  • Climbing stairs using his hands

As your baby learns to walk it’s a good idea to keep his feet as free as possible. Let him toddle barefoot. Going barefoot helps him to improve his balance and coordination. If cramped by tight shoes or socks, your baby’s feet can’t straighten out and grow properly.

When your baby starts walking around outside, then it is high time to buy a first pair of shoes for him. You can buy a ready made shoes or try to sew them by yourself. With FIRST BABY SHOES shoe making kit you can do it easily. All the shoe parts pre-cut and holes pre-made, two needles and a special yarn are in the kit. You just need 1-2 hours to sew them. Lots of fun and satisfaction guaranteed.

Buying first baby shoes |First Baby Shoes

Once your child takes first steps, it is time to buy him a first pair of shoes. What kind of shoes should you choose? What should you pay attention to?

First, flexibility. Make sure you can bend and twist them every which way. First shoes cannot be stiff.

Second, Breathability. Soft leather is the best. Avoid stiff leather shoes, which can hinder foot development. Synthetic materials, which don’t breath, are not good as well.

Roominess. Make the thumb test. You should be able to fit your thumb in between your baby’s biggest toe and the end of the shoe. You need to press down on it from the outside while your child is wearing it. And the first shoes should also pass the pinch test — at the shoe’s widest point, you want to be able to grasp a bit of its material between your fingers.

It is good to choose shoes with shoelaces as they keep feet much better than Velcro. Make sure shoelaces are long enough to tie into double knots, so they won’t come undone.

Shoe making kit “First Baby Shoes” gives everyone a chance to create a FIRST pair of BABY SHOES. Our shoes are made of natural leather and have flexible soles. They are designed to protect tiny tootsies.

Starting something new | First Baby Shoes

For many people starting something new is difficult, but this is really good for your brain. If you are spending almost all your time on doing the same for the last 6 months, you should start doing something new. This is not so difficult to start. Just make a small step. You can change your way to your office or buy a new book and read it during your lunch time instead of staring at your computer. You can start new things , even from today on the way back to home.

When I struggle in my daily life, I always try to find the way to refresh my mind. This is the high time for me to do something new and this method works for me very well. If not I will try to find another way, for example do some sports to get sweat and get rid of stress from my body.

First Baby Shoes

Many people think that I don’t feel good, because I have too much work or too much stress. It happens to you when you lose balance between mental and physical side. So that your brain automatically starts giving you a signal to slow down. If you don’t listen to your natural alarm, you may have a big problem in the future.Maybe this is time to sew First Baby Shoes and get back your balance 😉

Keep your life in balance !

Things to do during your maternity leave | First Baby Shoes

At the beginning of maternity leave you are totally involved in taking care of your newborn. But with time your baby starts to sleep more and more during a day and as you do not need to have such long naps, you start to have more free time just for you. What to do? Running out of ideas?

Many mums take up crafts. This may have to do with baby, or it might have to do with starting a business with whatever you make. We love the idea of making FIRST BABY SHOES. Our company has designed cute shoe making kits. They include everything one needs to make a pair of baby shoes – leather parts, needles, thread and easy sewing instruction.  You just need 2, 3 hours to complete a pair of shoes. While your little baby is taking a nap, you can make shoes for him. Isn’t that great? You can choose from different models and colors. Kits are available online in our store.

On maternity leave, many mums start cleaning the house and throwing away unneeded items. But do not be too obsessed with it. The mess in the house with kids is normal;)

Maternity leave is also the perfect time to catch up with friends. Find some time to go for a lunch or coffee. Relaxing chat with friends will give you lots of energy for sure.

But remember, you don’t have to do anything while on maternity leave. You can just sit, look at your new baby and enjoy this special time.

Sewing therapy | First Baby Shoes

We at First Baby Shoes love sewing. We strongly believe it has lots of therapeutic benefits. Sewing demands from us to focus both physically and mentally on a task. If you’re concentrating on sewing you can’t be worrying about how life will look like after giving a birth, or fretting about problems at work. Sewing is calming. It also gives a great feeling of pride in using one’s hands to create something unique. There is something wonderful about pointing to your baby’s shoes and saying: “I did that.” Being able to sew is great for our self – confidence. Sewing is also good for our brains. It builds our hand-eye coordination and keeps our fingers nimble.

We believe that hand-made is very powerful. There’s a lot of good energy and love put into hand-made items. That is why First Baby Shoes differ from ready made shoes. They are unique as they are hand-made by YOU!

How about indulging in a little sewing therapy with First Baby Shoes?
