Shoe Shopping Tips For Back To School
Shoe-shopping Tips For Back-to-school
As the dog days of summer start to dwindle, parents everywhere will scramble to outfit their children for back-to-school. Stores will be inundated with moms and dads in search of the latest fads and fashions for their little ones, and shoes are sure to top the list.
Children's feet change rapidly as they age, so it may be necessary to revisit the shoe store every few months. The American Podiatric Medical Association provides the following tips for parents to ensure the shoes they buy make the grade:
* It's important to measure a child's foot before buying; feet are seldom the exact same size, and ill-fitting shoes can be aggravating. Be sure to buy for the larger foot.
* Shop in the afternoon. Feet tend to swell later in the day, so it's best to be fitted during this time to accommodate slight changes in foot size.
* Select shoes that are comfortable immediately. Don't buy shoes that require a "break-in" period.
* Look for a stiff heel. Press on both sides of the shoe's heel; it shouldn't collapse.
* Check the shoe's toe flexibility. The shoe should bend with your child's toes. It shouldn't be too stiff or bend too much.
* Choose a shoe that is rigid in the middle. It should never twist.
* Have your children try on shoes with the socks or tights they plan to wear with them.
The APMA advises parents not to hand down footwear from an older sibling. A shoe that fits one child comfortably may not fit another the same way. Sharing shoes can also present a health hazard by spreading infections such as athlete's foot and nail fungus.
BONUS : Shopping For Diaper Bags
When the little one arrives, diaper bags are a must. This can be anything from a bag specifically designed for this purpose to an oversized shoulder bag with a lot of extra compartments. The truth is that there is no universal rule for diaper bags and how they should look. In fact, they can be very stylish and even affordable.
When shopping for diaper bags, you may sometimes end up paying more for a bag just because of its intended purpose. The truth is that you can often find a bag, with just as much possibility, for a lot less money if you know what to look for.
What are diaper bags? Basically, these are bags that you take with you that include baby items, such as diapers, powders, baby wipes and a change of clothes for the little one incase of an accident. Just because you are sporting a bag full of diapers doesnt mean that you cannot do it with style. Shopping for diaper bags can be as easy as either visiting the infant section of a local retail or online store, but it can also be as simple as a stroll through the purse aisle.
Consider purchasing a large leather shoulder bag with internal compartments and lots of space. One thing that all diaper bags must have in common, regardless of their design, is a snap or zip closure. This will help to prevent the babys things from accidentally falling out or rolling away if the bag slips off of your shoulder. And, this can happen, especially when your priority is holding onto a squirming baby and you arent paying attention to much else. The main thing is to keep your child in your arms at all cost and if that means dropping a few diaper bags, then it helps to have a secured closure so that the contents of the bag will stay safe.
You can find diaper bags, or purses that can be used for that purpose, at any one of the many online stores carrying purses. You can often find a terrific sale on popular designs, which makes the deal even sweeter. One of the important considerations when shopping for diaper bags is their comfort. You will be spending a lot of time toting this bag, so you want and need for it to be comfortable. It should be large enough to hold all of the necessary items, but without being overly bulky or awkward.
