jordans 8 months and whenever i put shoes on him they ethier fall off or he pulls them off in 5 mins, so he usually just wears socks, just wondering when your kids started wearing shoes all the time?

I would like to know as well. Also, will putting shoes on babies too early harm their development, and if so, how early?

There is no reason for a baby to wear shoes (hard soled) before they are walking. Booties and other soft soled shoes are fine for keeping them warm. Cruising bare foot is important in strengthening the muscles of the feet. A lot of babies will walk on their tippy toes. In hard soled shoes babies can't use these muscles as much.

My dd only wears Robeez (soft soled leather slippers). I don't plan on putting real shoes on her until she's about 1 and a half. I find most baby shoes SO stiff. It just seems like they would be really uncomfortable. Dr's & ped's don't really recommend shoes much before then anyway. Robeez are great because babies can't easily pull them off....
