Here’s a hot topic with mums I know – and here’s a paper to give some guidance. I’ve been quite partial to the Robeez slippers that have been gifts from friends. Lately I’ve come across other brands of very similar designs. The only criticism I have is that the elastic can be a bit tight – this is what caused us to move up to the 12-18 month size, even though they were too long for his feet. Thanks to someone I spoke to at a swap meet the other day, I realized that I can just take out the elastic and replace it with a longer piece. Not rocket science, but I never would have thought of that on my own. Doh! That would be “mummy brain” in action.
