When Ykaie was born we were excited and bought her many set of clothes. She was my first-born, that's why I was really excited. I bought a lot of those cute newborn socks that looks like shoes. I bought those socks in different colors to match her clothes. After a few months, she started walking and that made me even more excited because that meant shopping for Baby Shoes!
I have seen a lot of pretty shoes at the mall and I can't wait to buy them for my daughter's pretty feet. I can still remember the day when we went to the mall to buy her what's going to be her first pair of shoes. This is the day I found out that buying a pair of shoes for a baby is different than buying one for adult. It requires a lot more attention because they can't tell you how it fits. One of her shoes gave her blisters after she wore them for two hours. I was frustrated with that pair because it was branded and a little expensive. I had give it away, she won't be able to use it anyway. It was hard-earned money wasted.
It's not always better to buy expensive branded shoes. Today, I always look for shoes that give protection and support to little feet. I go for brands that have all sizes available. Some brands like Startrite even has different width fittings to match children's feet.
