Prior to Baby Bear’s arrival, we were sent some adorable little baby shoes by Dotty Fish. Dotty Fish make non-slip, chemical free, soft leather baby shoes, which are elasticated at the heel and have suede soles. They come in a wide variety of styles for boys and girls, from fire engines to flowers and there are sizes ranging from birth to 4 years. I think these would be a great idea for those days when Baby Bear learns to walk, as they will stop him from slipping on the laminate flooring.
I chose some white “Twinkle Twinkle” design shoes with blue stars sewn on, in 0-6 months for Baby Bear. The sizing was very generous, but Baby Bear has very long feet and long toes for a baby, so I think I may need to buy the next size up before he reaches 6 months. I imagine that most babies would fit these for the full first six months though. I found that the elasticated backs make them very easy to get on tiny little feet and they stay on too. Baby Bear actually has 4 different pairs of shoes (not bad for 10 weeks old) and alongside a pair of lace-ups, these Dotty Fish shoes are the only ones which stay on his feet until I take them off. I seem to spend half the day putting his other shoes back on. These are actually a good way of keeping his socks on too!
In addition to being ultra soft for baby feet and easy to get on and off, they look SO CUTE. Obviously I’m biased and think that my little man looks awesome in anything, but Dotty Fish really are adorable. They came in a lovely little organza bag too, which would make them an ideal gift and at £7.99 per pair, they are exceptional value for money.
