Are there any slippers that will grip on a laminate floor?

(6 Posts)

We've just got a laminate floor in our living room and our 11mo dd is fine if she's in bare feet but she can't stay in bare feet all winter. If we put socks on her she goes flying. I think she's too young for fitted shoes but we're struggling to find soft slippers/shoes/socks that have something suitably grippy on the soles. Anybody else with laminate floors found footwear that's really good?

We have mainly wooden floors and the the children, whe younger, tended to wear slipper socks like Califrau said.

We bought ours from a variety of places like H&M, Primark etc

these slippers from Jo Jo Maman Bebe (10% off through Mumsnet) have a great non-slip sole for a walking baby when she is a little bigger but they do come up small (had to get the 7/8 size for dd who is in size 5 shoes). They also do slipper socks with a non-slip sole e.g. these. Dd normally okay in BabyGap socks (with the sticky print on the soles) on our wooden floors

MummyToOneForNow - those first ones look great - might try those. Have tried one or two high street varieties (Next/Boots) but they still slip a lot - not tried Gap though. Thanks for advice.

The soles on the JoJo slippers might be on the rigid side if you are after something soft at this stage - dd had been walking for about 3 months when I got them (and she was a late walker) - she hasn't slipped once in them though.
