I've just bought a pair of Clarke's cruising shoes for dd (12 months) so she can step out in the park. Unfortunately, I'm having real trouble getting them onto her (she curls up her toes as soon as the shoe comes close). Once the shoes are on, she's very good at getting them off (she goes up on tip-toe and they slip off) - probably because the shoes aren't on right in the first place.
This is something really basic but I'm really struggling! Any tips?
can you hold the shoes in front of her while you put one on? I had to put my dd on the floor as she curled her toes. The other way is to put them on and then put her down on the floor. once she's on the floor she has to straighten her toes and then you can tighten the buckle
My dd is 11 months and I usually give her something to hold to distract her - like her old shoes or the remote control - otherwise she tries to grab the shoes I'm trying to put on her and it takes forever! Don't know if that's any help.
