How to Measure Your Baby's Feet Size

Follow these 6 simple steps to measure your baby’s feet size:

  • Step 1: Fold an A4 piece of paper approx 6cm from the edge.
  • Step 2: Place the paper into a container or box with the folded edge firmly in the corner.
  • Step 3: Let your baby position their foot inside the box with their heel firmly against the box wall.
  • Step 4: Trace around your baby’s toes with a pencil.
  • Step 5: Unfold the A4 paper and measure from the fold line to the big toes. This will be your baby’s foot length.

  • You should be able to squeeze your finger in between the back of the shoe and your baby’s heel.
  • Select the larger size if your baby’s foot size is in-between the sizes.
  • Babies won’t be able to tell us if something is bothering them. So as with any shoes, check for signs of irritation after a days’ wear.
  • Children’s feet grow quickly so you should measure your baby’s foot size once every few months to ensure their shoe size.
