How to Keep Baby Socks On

 Top Tips for Keeping Baby Socks On

 

 

Let’s Picture These Two Scenarios

 

  • You’ve spent the last two hours rushing around the house, getting yourself washed, dressed and fed, getting baby washed, dressed and fed. You’re sure you’ve popped a pair of socks on your baby. You’re all ready to finally leave the house. You might even be feeling a little smug as you’re on schedule for your plans and feeling pretty confident you’re not going to be late (being on time, let’s be honest, is tough enough even with one little human to care for). Strolling down the street, you look at baby and smile. All is good. You literally blink and BAM – a single sock is gone. You might retrace your steps, but you have to be mindful of the time – you don’t want to be late after your stellar time management efforts this morning. Do you ever find the missing sock? Nope, usually not, those wiggly little toes have wiggled it into thin air!

 

  • Your cheeky little rascal/monkey/monster/angel has reached that delightful age where they just LOVE to pull their own socks off. Call it a newfound baby ability, their growing independence or downright annoying – the fact of the matter is that whenever they get a sneaky chance – off come the socks!

Either way, you’ve got a baby with missing/lost socks and chilly feet.

So what’s the solution?


I’ve got 3 top tips for keeping baby socks on to share with you

 

  • If it’s not warm weather, it’s OK to let babies of BOTH SEXES wear tights. Yes, yes, I know, some folks think that’s weird and silly – a boy in tights!! Personally, I think it’s an easy way to solve a very common issue. You don’t have to go all out with sparkly and crazy colours, in fact, John Lewis does some simple, warm and cosy tights that boys or girls can wear. Just pop a pair on under their trousers instead of socks and there you have it – one simple solution!
  • There’s a fantastic company called Bites Baby Wear and the concept is cool jeans with socks attached to the inside so they can’t come off – genius! If you’d like to grab a whopping 20% off your first purchase with them, add INTRO20 at the checkout online.

 

 

  • Another great option is to get a pair of Sock Ons. They are little things you put on over baby socks so they can’t fall off. Fantastic! Check out their video here:

 

So there you have it, 3 great solutions but…

What to do with odd socks?


 

  • Put ice or frozen peas inside and tie up to help when they are teething

  • Keep collecting the odd socks and get creative – dress baby in odd socks!
  • Use as a door stop
  • Make cool and fun stuff with them. Be inspired by these fab ideas with Suzanne
