Just wondering how often you have your LO's feet measured and if you replace their shoes each time?

When really young I think they recommend every six weeks or less if you think the shoes are getting tight.
I don't buy new shoes unless she needs them x

I think they suggest every couple of months whilst they're young - I had F's feet measured a few weeks ago and the lady recommended we get them checked again at the end of March. If he's outgrown his current shoes then we replace them.

My Son has been the same size for nearly a year, he is 3 and a 6f! I take him every 8 weeks now

In my case, it's when O's shoes go missing (usually at MIL's house). There was one time when he went up a size and a half in about 8 weeks!

I recently bought a Clark's measuring device (only £6) as Isaac has wide feet and I can never get anything decent in store anyway. So I measure every 6/8weeks and then order online

I was told 4-6 weeks in clarks as E was very young when she needed shoes. . I take her every 4 weeks and it's about 50% of the time she needs a new size. She was a 3 in October and is now going into a 5 so they do grow really quickly here! I'm hoping she does all her foot growing early and gives my purse a break! She has shoes then winter/outdoor shoes then two sets of slippers for home and childminders (which have to be clarks canvas shoes due to chunky feet).
