It Is Natural For Babies To Resist Wearing Shoes Initially
At this age, one of the best ways of making your child learn something is to do it yourself. Anything new, and your child is bound to have issues with that. A child around this age is a keen observer. Even if it may look apparently that he is not observing much, but in actually he is doing that a great deal. After buying shoes, if your baby is not interested in it, leave it there. And, instead you make him see how you are wearing shoes and are comfortable with it. You child will eventually start following what you do while going out and coming back. Do not force.
Anything new takes time. And even though wearing shoes is a mundane thing for you, but for the little munchkin, this is a whole new world. Allow him to observe and adjust and he will follow your steps soon.
