Pre-walkers are the best baby shoes to help children find their feet
It’s exciting to see your child find their feet. However, it can also be frustrating. There are many things you should consider as your infant explores the world around them. From being able to stand on their own to reaching into cabinets they can’t reach before, to crawling up onto furniture and more. It’s important to teach your baby to walk and use shoes.
Baby crawling shoes don’t come in cute, matching pairs. They are designed to allow infants to move freely and provide extra grip.
Pre-walkers can be a great option for babies who are crawling, or ‘cruising’. They also help with those first steps. However, once they begin walking, they will need to have a pair of sturdy shoes. A shoe-fitting service is worth looking into.
What age do babies begin to walk?
Between seven and ten months old, babies start crawling. Most children begin walking between 8 and 18 months. Don’t worry if your child isn’t able to walk by 18 months. They will learn when they are ready. If you are concerned, it may be worth talking to your doctor or health visitor.
