Baby Shoe Size Guide
0 – 12 Months Baby
As a parent, you need to realise that every child develop on their time. Your child might be late to develop according to his/her age mates, that does not necessarily mean that something is wrong with your child.
Not every child will reach some growth and development milestones while some even jump them altogether. This can help you understand the varying shoe sizes among children within the same age range.
Check the above image to see the size range for your child between the ages of 0 – 12 months.
Normally, from 0 – 3 months old is when;
- Recognising and feeling comforted by the sound of your voice.
- Tracking and focusing on nearby objects and faces, like when they’re breastfeeding or bottle-feeding. And by the time your baby hits the 3-month mark they might even be able to recognise your face!
- Smiling – first to themselves and gradually at others.
- Lifting their head up during tummy time.
- Making noises.
- Opening and closing their hands and reaching out for items.
- Kicking their feet out – their motor skills are staying to develop at a fast pace.
Walker Shoe Size 12 – 24 Months Baby
Around 4 – 6 months, many babies start showing more personality. Besides those cute smiles and little baby babbles, here’s what you can keep an eye out for these next few months:
- Rolling over – usually front to back first, then back to front (but sometimes the other way around).
Sitting up with support.
- Using their hands to grab and play with toys, or grabbing feet and maybe bringing them to their mouth.
- Putting weight on their legs when held in a standing position. And maybe they’ll do some bouncing, too!
- Laughing and more babbling.
- Your baby may also begin to recognise their name.
- Showing interest in your food as they prepare to eat their own solid foods.
2-4 Years Baby
There’s so much going on in toddler development at 2-3 years. At this age, expect big feelings, tantrums, simple sentences, pretend play, independence, new thinking skills and much more.
Activities that are good for development include talking and listening, reading, working on everyday skills and cooking together.
Find opportunities to engage in play and conversations with your toddler. Playtime could be as simple as rolling a ball back and forth, handing you their toys or helping you with safe activities like folding clothes with your supervision.
These types of activities can help develop pro-social behaviours by fostering a sense of belonging and collaboration with others.
Be calm and accepting. Give your child positive attention when he does eat, but don’t make it a problem when he doesn’t eat. Just take the food away, cover it, and offer it to him again a bit later.
Create little fine-motor skills challenges for your toddler, like asking her to turn the page of a book.
