Lil Tip: Postpartum Shoes

No matter which shoes fit your fancy, make sure your postpartum pairs are a lil snug. Many women experience swelling of their feet in the final stage of pregnancy and this can lead to stretched out shoes. Toting around your tyke in kicks that are a bit too big can be dangerous.

Though I love heels, when carrying my kids as infants I traded them in for safer forms of footwear — flats and shoes with traction. Especially after I fell on a gaping crack on the curb while walking with my 8-week-old son. While that incident had nothing to do with my choice of footwear, I'd never wish the fright on anyone. So play it safe and opt for sensible shoes.

There are plenty of styles, like these from BC Footwear that can take you from work to the park without forfeiting your fashion sense or breaking the bank.

Yeah...no one told me that my feet would grow so much!! My feet were so swollen when i was pregnant that i couldnt wear much more than my slip-on slippers. Once they were born and the water weight disappeared, my feet were size 10!!! I freaked thinking i would have to toss out all my size 9's. Luckily i refrained from tossing them and my feet eventually shrunk back to size. In the meantime i think i wore mainly flip-flops or no shoes at all because i was home with my boys. These are really cute shoes though...i may look into these for my next pregnancy! :D

Ummmm...I wouldn't wear these. Ever. My postpartum shoes were my beloved Jimmy Choos I hadn't worn since May. It hasn't occurred to me to switch to flats cuz I have a baby. I walk on cobblestone all the time-flat or heeled, you have to be careful. Mama wanted her style back after a summer and fall of ballet flats!

Sadly I had to get rid of all my pre-pregnancy shoes. My feet grew a whole size with pregnancy and have not gone back. :( I'm slowly working on beefing up my collection. I love the wedges in the main pic.

I miss heels too, but I can only wear them when going out with hubby and with the knowledge that I'll be sitting most of the time. :(

I like the main ones too, but I usually steer away from flats since they have horrible to non-existent arch support.
