: My 11-month-old is walking now and refuses to wear shoes. It's fine for her to go barefoot inside, but she likes to walk around outside too. When I put shoes on her, she throws a screaming fit. You'd think I was torturing the poor girl! She won't even stand up in them, she just sits on the floor screaming and trying to get them off. The doctors say don't put shoes on babies till they start walking, so I didn't. But starting them earlier would have gotten her used to them so she wouldn't freak out so bad now. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get her to like shoes, or even any brands of shoes that are more comfortable or more fun to wear? Thanks!

Get her some shoes that are bright in color and let her play around with them at first to see what they are, then as time goes by she will let you put them on her.
