As all parents know, through the cold winter months, great care must be taken to keep babies as warm as possible. Feet are a main source of heat loss from the body, so everyone, not just babies, should take the time to make sure they are keeping their feet well wrapped up. Rather than wearing shoes or boots with new man-made materials, a traditional approach can be even better. Sheepskin has been regarded as one of the best ways to keep heat in for hundreds of years. Ugg boots made with genuine grade A sheepsin keep heat in while allowing air to circulate, making them perfect to keep your baby’s feet warm while preventing overheating in the summer months.
The comfort level of sheepskin boots is also far higher than that of shoes with man-made textiles. The soft texture is perfect for the soft skin of your baby’s or even your own feet, and Ugg boots can be worn without socks for ultimate comfort throughout the year.
Uggs can also be worn by older children. A variety of colours of classic ugg boots are available for kids, and their stylish design makes sure kids will want to wear the boots as they will be seen as the most fashionable kids in the playground, while you can rest assured that your children are warm enough.
You should, however, discourage your children from splashing through puddles while wearing their ugg boots! Sheepskin does not cope well with wet weather. It can happen that rain starts unexpectedly though, so if a situation where ugg boots get muddy or dirty occurs, it is best to deal with the problem gently. Harsh shampoos and washing powders, the washing machine, and hot water are all no-goes. Use cool water to wash the boots gently, and if necessary a gentle conditioner. You could stuff the boots with newspaper to help them keep their shape while drying.
You can find Ugg boots for babies and children in a variety of places on the web.
