Dd is just over a year old

She is standing and moving around furniture

Shoe shop won't fit her with shoes as her arches haven't dropped apparently. I can't find much about it online and never had this problem with older dc who were fitted with shoes at the same stage?

It's a small local shoe shop with a good reputation

They stock start right shoes

Some kids have high arches. What is this arch dropping business I have never heard of?

See I've never heard of it either and she is my third!

And dr google didn't turn up anything on it either

Anyone have any ideas? Should I just try a different shop?

I'm a mother of 3 and a nurse. I have very high arches. Maybe they drop in your 40s? Sounds like a big pile of steaming poo.

Dd had high arches so lots of styles just didn't fit her properly.

The shop said to comeback in a few weeks and she might be "ready" then
