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!

Starting solid foods | First Baby Shoes

Today I would like to write about introducing solid foods. It is said you should start your baby on solids between 4 and 6 months. Firstly, you have to decide what to give your baby as a first meal – fruits or vegetables. We tried vegetables first when my daughter was 6 months old. We started from carrot, potato, pumpkin and then cauliflower.  We wanted to introduce our daughter as many flavors as we could. Every baby has his own taste, so you should try several types of vegetables and see which are preferred. After giving vegetables, we started to introduce fruits solids as well.

Some people say that starting off with fruits shouldn’t make babies less likely to eat vegetables later. But my observation says something different.3 of our friends who started introducing solids from fruits (because they had difficulties to feed vegetable solids), have now problems as their children don’t want to eat vegetable or meals at all. Of course they cook vegetables for them, but children are not in favor of them. My daughter likes vegetables a lot. She doesn’t have any likes or dislikes. Of course she loves sweets a lot, but eats other foods as well.

It seems first solids may be a key point for the future likes and dislikes. Because each baby has each taste and everyone has different family dishes, so the most important thing is trying several types of solids and finding good baby foods for your baby.

I hope this experience and my opinion will help you a bit.

Have a nice time 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.
