We started Sadie Baby in 2016, in search for of gorgeous, stylish & quality made shoes for teeny tiny foot. Sadie is our inspiration behind our shoes, Sadie was born at 41 weeks, and she was 5 pound & 14 ounces. At 3 months Sadie wasn’t growing along the desired graph, and we began our journey in search of the reason behind. At 10.5 months, Sadie's feet hit the ground; she was off walking, climbing and learning how to use her low centre of gravity to her advantage, taking on her brother’s skateboard. So Sadie Baby, Baby shoes was created.
Just before Sadie's first birthday, we got our much-awaited advise, Sadie has dwarfism, Hypochrondoplasia. We do not have any family history of dwarfism (short genes -yes!).
A little bit about dwarfism
Hypochondroplasia is a form of short-limbed dwarfism. This condition affects the conversion of cartilage into bone (a process called ossification), particularly in the long bones of the arms and legs. Hypochondroplasia is similar to another skeletal disorder called achondroplasia, but the features tend to be milder.
All people with hypochondroplasia have short stature. The adult height for men with this condition ranges from 138 centimeters to 165 centimeters (4 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 5 inches). The height range for adult women is 128 centimeters to 151 centimeters (4 feet, 2 inches to 4 feet, 11 inches).
I am the luckiest mother in the world, to have my little pocket rocket. May our children know that they are special, unique and wonderfully made.

Since Sadie our team of girls have grown. We now have Maggie & Daphne.
