Post subject: foot size and walking?
My little one has been pulling herself up on the furniture since 8 months old. She is a bit of a pudding (26lbs and only 11 months) but she has tiny feet which I am sure is delaying her walking and standing unaided. She is getting so frustrated. Because she is big she tips up her walker. I know my other 2 walked when their feet were much bigger. My son had size 4 feet and my daughter size 3 and a half. I took Evie to get some cruising shoes from Clarks and she is only just a size 2 and a half. Any one else notice this?

I'm not worried about her age, big one at 10 months, middle one at 14 months, its just she is so frustrated. We've gone back to constant moaning and crying all day. I was starting to think she was a nice child, if a little bit serious, but I can not handle this the whole time. Add in being up a couple of times in the night with her most nights and I am at breaking point again.

Hi I can't really say much but my lo just took his 1st unaided steps 2 days ago at 10 mths(weighs 21lb and cruising since 7 mths). I have no idea what size his feet are but they look quite small and in proportion to his build and body!!
Now he's on the move I'd better go and get his feet measured and some shoes sooner rather than later!!
I totally understand how you must feel as my lo is never predicatably good at night. Some nights he can sleep through completely, other nights he cries out for a cuddle or a little snack and other nights he is up playing and chatting at 2am or 5am or some unsociable time!!! I guess we just have to hope that they work out how to give us a good night soon?!
