Milkweed Baby is home of thoughtfully designed, carefully handcrafted, vegan moccasin style soft sole shoes for babies & toddlers. FREE SHIPPING for all Ready To Ship styles & all US orders $50 and up!

I've been designing, making & perfecting these soft soled shoes for over 8 years now (previously under the name ByMindy). I design many of the fabrics I use, and the others have been carefully curated. I make sure my products are safe, comfortable, durable & practical.

Hi! I'm Mindy, a wife, mom, artist, designer & hand-maker of everything you see here! I spend my days at home raising my wonderful daughter & my nights sewing & designing.

I've added some cool new options for you! You can now add on a number of cool things taking your booties to the next level! Rubber crepe soles make your moccasinss more suitable for outside wear. Gold vegan faux leather or Charcoal vegan faux suede soles or toe guards are stylish & flexible, and the toe guards are excellent for super crawlers that may otherwise wear out the toes of their shoes! Go to sections and select "Add On: Toe Guards/Soles" to add these options to your order!!!I'm working to source materials so I can offer even more colors & add-ons!

Be sure to follow me on social media (more info below) so you are the first to know when additional options become available! Hope you have a great day!

To measure your child's foot, place it flat on a piece of paper and trace around the foot. Measure a straight line from the longest toe to the back of the heel. Now, add 1/2 an inch and find your size!
I just got in a bunch of the Rifle Paper Wonderland fabrics!!! Send me a convo to preorder sizes newborn-13.

About

Makers gotta make!

I started making & selling baby shoes & bibs 8 years ago on my other etsy shop www.bymindy.etsy.com. I toyed with the idea of rebranding as Milkweed Baby, but I didn't want to lose my existing customer base from the switch. As I was working on that idea, I had my daughter! No one tells you about the motherhood club, but it exists and once you're in, you're in! I love the colorful trendy styles I still make & sell on my other etsy, but I found a need for more timeless styles as well... so that's where I decided to take Milkweed Baby. Timeless, classic, mostly gender neutral. And with the awesome quality & attention to detail that I pride myself with, these will last for your baby's babies. My business is a labor of love, and I believe that it shows in the products! Thank you for supporting my small business & the local economy in Kansas City!

Frequently asked questions

International orders cannot be returned/exchanged.

Buyer pays return shipping. Buyer will pay any loss in value.

***If you have a special situation, please contact me. I'm happy to work out a solution with you.***

How should I measure?

Place baby’s foot flat on a piece of paper & trace around the foot.
Measure at the longest part of the foot (toe to heel).
Add ½ inch to find size.
Be sure to measure from the first line on your ruler/measuring tape (using the very end of the device will provide an inaccurate measurement).
If you choose to add on toe guards (great for crawlers) OR rubber soles please go up 1 size.
If you add toes guards & rubber soles, you may need to go up 2 sizes.
Fabric moccasins are meant to fit snug, especially for young walkers. Buying large to have room to grow is not advised as the extra room can cause your kiddo to trip. When you get your shoes, you want them to fit like socks. A little extra width isn't a problem.

Care instructions

Machine wash shoes on a gentle cycle in cool water with a mild detergent. Air dry.
