How quickly should his feet grow? He has size 4.5 feet which I know is v small for his age and he still seems to have a lot of room in his sandals that we bought months ago.

Husband has small feet and DS has his features -
But still, friends talk of how quickly their kids feet grow...

Is it something to worry about?

Not really anything to worry about and no set growth expected really as I have the same with my dd,I got more than 6-7months out of shoes for my dd aged 3 now as she is such a slow and small at growing.
Be thankful you will save money by not having to buy shoes every 12weeks or less.

You could get your son looked over by hv/gp if your worried but I'm sure there will come a point of growth spurt for your and my dc And then we will pay.

I sometimes worry too as my brother literally stopped growing at a normal rate anyway aged two but then caught up about aged 17-18 so wonder of it can be genetic.

I wouldn't worry about it. Dd has very small feet. She is 3.7 and her feet are just a size 6. She seems to be catching up a bit.

Ds2 age 7.5 has 10.5 size feet shoes lasted all of last school year make the mist my oldest needed shoes every month and only went up in half sizes .

I wouldn't worry, even now at 12 and 8 my oldest 2 tend to stay the same size for ages and then jump a couple of sizes in a very short space of time. My youngest looks like she will be going the same way. It's more of a PITA than a worry now!

Ds is 12 and only goes up one shoe size a year....he still has comparatively small feet - size 2.5 (adult size) for his age....He hasn't really hit a growth spurt but I'm fully convinced he's never going to go above a size 7 - 7.5....

Be thankful...children's shoes are very expensive and to have to buy several pairs of shoes a year, particularly if shopping in Clarks or Start-Rite can become very costly indeed.

my 18mo is 2.5! the shoe shop doesn't believe she can walk. grin.

DS has slow growing feet. He can be in the same size for months on end and then suddenly jump two sizes.

Poocatcher dd was similar. She started walking at 10mths and we went to get her measured for shoes, she wasn't even a size 2! Finally at 14 months she creeped into a 2 and could get shoes. I think she made it to a 3 by about 2 years old.
