To Wear Baby Shoes or Not to Wear Baby Shoes?

If you are a parent of a newborn or preemie, you are well aware of all the adorable clothing out there - especially shoes. But do newborns and preemies really need to wear them? Technically, they do not, not with all the baby booties and footy pajamas available. Do the shoes look absolutely adorable on them? Oh yes for sure, you can't deny that. But is it really comfortable for them or economical, for that matter?

I remember getting all the trendy newborn shoes for my baby girl and being so very excited to put them on her. The compliments were worth it, but after a while I came to realize that really, my sweet baby just did not need to wear those shoes. After all, they will eventually kick their little feet so much that they will fall off. I had this happen on several occasions. I think people can save a significant amount of money if they just didn't buy baby shoes, especially brand name shoes. When my first baby was born, a friend of mine went out and purchased $60 newborn Nike tennis shoes. Isn't that just crazy? Not just that my friend would buy those but the fact that a major brand such as Nike would actually sell shoes for that price for newborns. They are obviously going to outgrow them quickly and since they can't walk, the shoes will be brand new and never have a wear or tear. I have held onto those cute little pink and white Nikes as a keepsake but really, is it just a waste of time and money?

What do you think? Are newborn shoes really worth the money or are we just wasting our time, money, and efforts with something our little ones could care less about? Let me know your thoughts!

  6. selecting patches of shinny leather, it wouldn't go that great unless there is a designer touch towards the Chanel 2.55 identical. chanel online The easiest way to guarantee that possibly 1 is buying designer stuff only or could be classic chanel bags going for chanel handbags the Christian Louboutin replica range because they have an incredible assortment. Purchasing these kinds of a layout from a nearby marketplace might be a complete vogue goof up. Stay away from these unless embarrassment is what a single desires.

  26. Okay first off- ignore the note about it csuiang oxygen levels to drop that isn't true. In fact when a baby has a cold and what not the doctors will tell you to let them sleep in a car seat or rocker chair to make breathing easier. Also; the sleep position that has some type of evidence to be related to sids is letting a baby sleep on their stomach all the time; how that is I have no idea. My son use to only sleep in his car seat, chair and what not. Anything that would like literally cradle him. He's a year old and sleeps just fine in it. I don't see the point in letting them cry.. if they don't wanna sleep in a crib yet it's not like they're 5 and trying to sleep in a horrible spot rather then their bed. Let the baby be comfy and happy As long as the baby is safe no one is going to jump on you for it. I mean people in general may because a crib is typical and more accepted but baby will sleep there when he wants to dangit. lol Good luck. P.S. try to get him to take naps in his crib, try swaddling but don't just make him be upset and sleep in a crib for a short period of time. Just slowly let him want to sleep there. Have fun with him!
