DD is 11 months and very close to walking.... She'll need some proper shoes in the next month or two, I think.
Problem is she has teeny tiny feet... Both short and narrow. Length is about 8cm so from what I can figure, smaller than a size 0.
We have a pair of Bubox shoes size 3-9 months and they swim on her!!!
Anyone know of anywhere that sells little shoes? We just managed to find some for DS (when he started walking) from Shoes and Sox as his feet were small, but I think he was a size two from memory so much bigger by comparison!!

My DD has tiny feet too (only just moved up to a size 2 at 15 months) and I ended up getting her some early/pre-walkers from target. Nice flexible sole, small sizes and a reasonable price ($15). Hope this helps

Try best and less. We've got a couple of shoes sized 0-3 months from there that are probably the size you are looking for.
Both of my kids started out in the Best and Less prewalkers because they were cheap enough that losing them didn't hurt too much, had a nice range of sizes and good variety of styles.

Best and less, target, pumpkin patch is where we got ours

I found a couple of pre-walker style shoes for my DD (kmart etc) but I looked for ones with good grip as a lot were really slippery at home and at shopping centres. By 18mths my DD was about a size 3, then she had a pair of hand me down clarks and nike runners.

My girl has very narrow small feet too. We tried many brands and the best fit was the brand Old Soles. They are expensive and if you want to save money you might find some secondhand ones on ebay.
