I hope this doesn't cause a massive debate as this is absolutely not my intention, but at what age does your baby start to wear shoes? My LO is 7 months so not quite at the cruising stage yet, but loves standing and he often stands on his tiptoes. I mentioned this to my mother who said that putting shoes on him will 'correct' this and that's what they used to do back in her day. So I googled it and have found conflicting advice on when to put shoes on your baby. Some sources say that barefoot is best and others say that shoes help a baby's foot develop well.
