So you may have just stumbled across our page or be one of our avid customers and like what you see as you scroll through pages of awesome kids fashion.
I thought I would let you know what we are all about, giving you a bit of insight into how we became 'us'. I always like reading the about us page on businesses web pages so this is a bit the same but in more depth. Hopefully you find it interesting!!
Behind the scenes, is me who runs the show and my hubby who does all the technical support aka the computer geek. We have 3 beautiful boys, that are pretty much the reason for this business and are our 'testers'. If it doesn't pass that test we don't sell it!
We have been running Baby Bootique since late 2009 and It all started when I was pregnant with my second son and needed something else to do, crazy I know! We were in the process of buying my son who was 1 at the time his first pair of shoes. We bought a pair from a chain store, as you did and they were ugly, not only that but he just stomped around like he had bricks on his feet. I thought there has to be better shoes out there and then BAM we came up with the idea well my hubby did to start our own online business selling baby and toddler shoes that were great for kids feet.
We started with 4 brands and about 10 styles and now have way too many to count. It just keeps growing thanks to a slight shoe fetish I have!
Our shoes have to meet a strict criteria or we won't sell them.
- they need to be flexible for baby's and still have some give once they get into the toddler and kid age.
- they need to be quality so they last
-they need to look after your little one's feet as they grow.
Hence why the brands we sell such as Old Soles, Bobux, Tip Toey Joey and Saltwater Sandals as they have done their research and made sure all of these criteria have been met.
I'm just as fussy with clothes and when we decided to branch out in 2013 into the big wide world of kids fashion, we still had high standards to be met. The clothes had to be good quality, durable, look after our kiddies and also look super cool! With brands such as Huxbaby, Milky, Anarkid and Band of Boys plus heaps more, I think we have achieved that.
So, we have created an online hub so to speak where you can come and get all you need to dress your little one, knowing it's the BEST! Well I think it is and I hope you do too :)
love love love them and so does my 2.5 year old!

Literally sent out the day after I ordered and I ordered late too. The product itself is amazing quality and so cute but really the service from this shop blew my socks off will be shopping here again for sure
I will very rarely leave a review but after receiving 2 pairs of shoes just days after ordering I felt this wonderful little store deserved a good review. These boots are incredibly soft and perfect for my little one to learn to walk in. My order was packed and sent the day after ordering and arrived with a beautiful hand written note.
Baby Bootique will now be my go to store for shoes for my girls.
I am blown away by these shoes! The elastic back & laces, and velcro straps make them very comfortable and easy to get on and off. The soles are soft and flexible, which was important for us as my little one stumbles a lot if wearing stiff or heavy soled shoes. And to top it off they are absolutely gorgeous! I was a little apprehensive about spending this much $ on shoes which will only last a few months, but I'm very happy with them!
Old Soles are one of the few brands I recommend for children. They allow feet to do what they should be doing without restricting foot development and strength. They are really there for a little extra protection (done in style and comfort) and the foot can do what it has been designed to do. They look and feel great. My son thinks they’re very fast shoes also! They wear well too. Can’t recommend this brand highly enough. Only complaint is they don’t make shoes from around 4yrs onwards as I’d love the option to keep all my kids wearing them.
Jodie and the team are wonderful at prompt delivery and hassle free exchange when necessary. I use Baby Bootique for my four children and can’t recommend it highly enough.
I bought my daughter a pair of cry wolf Wellington boots and rain jacket. Both were fantastic quality and very cute but contemporary in design. Perfect for my 18 month old with lots of growing room. The delivery was prompt, beautifully packaged and included a personal touch of a hand written note and free hair tie. I would hesitate to order from you again. Thank you 😊
Absolutely excellent service! In the post immediately, tracked at every step and a lovely note on our parcel when we received it! Also lucky enough to find the product on a really great sale price which was fantastic. Thank you Jodie! We'll be back.
We love this cup, my 11 month old uses it easily and it doesn't spill and feels sturdy and is eco friendly.
These are absolutely adorable! Actually, most things from baby bootique are but I just love the fit and the detail of the little bear on the bum!
I have the best dressed grandchildren. I have always had great efficient service and I love your attention to us. Thank you.
Loved the spotty baggie pant. So, had to have the matching tee. With a black long sleeve under neath. Looking great for outside on the Autumn days.
I love bobux shoes. These are no exception. They look amazing, are good quality and the sole gives the perfect support for growing feet. They are easy to put on, so my little one can do it all other own and adjust as necessary. Also the customer service from baby bootiique is impecable! I like that I can get my favourite brand of shoes and support a small business at the same time.
Love this new spotty great we purchased for out little one. Baggies and T-shirt. Great for casual days... or chilling on the weekend. Feel and look comfortable. This is the second pair of Anarkid baggies. Lots of growing and nappy room. Thanks Baby Boutique once again for the marvellous personal services.
Fantastic boots, have had this brand many times previously and they wear brilliantly!
Let the feet breath while protecting the toes and have support
Perfect little shoes for the cooler weather and great fast service
Shows came in 2 days! They are so beautiful! Lovely leather and style! My son walks so well in them. Highly recommend this site for purchases! Will definitely buy again! Great business you guys have, very happy customer
Exactly what i was after and i couldn't find these in stock anywhere else. Ordering was easy and super fast shipping! thanks Baby Boutique
Couldn't have found a more perfect first pair for our son. They are soft enough for his little feet but slightly firmer underfoot. The leather is so soft, it never rubs on our bub's supple skin. The opening is wide enough to get baby's chubby little feet into without a drama and they just look cool! We've had so many compliments on them.
The shoes are terrific and the ease of ordering save time and energy! Thank you
I love these Saltwater sandals -- incredibly well made and comfortable. Plus Bayb bootique sent them super quickly and it was an easy online transaction. I'm a very happy customer who will be happy to shop again.
True to size for Tip Toey Joey. My son is just learning to walk and these are perfect as they are flexible and easy to get on. You need to make sure you close the velcro straps properly. The colour is awesome - a nice contrast colour for boys. The suede can get dirty easily, but its simple to clean.
I had a mix up with my order and i was very happy with how it was handled so promply with no hassle! I always had a quick response to any questions I had! I definely recommend them and I will most definely be doing further shopping with the baby boutique.
i bought these shoes recently for my 13mth old who needed something comfy, durable and that would stay on his feet! These are seriously the best shoes for little boys on the market, he isn't aware they are there and get on with learning to walk.
