Baby socks and booties

Advice on what to look for when buying baby socks, plus the opportunity to purchase a range of baby socks, tights and non slip booties.
You will need lots of socks for indoor wear, and some booties for outdoor wear. Check the elastic around the top of the booties so it's tight enough to stop your baby kicking them off.

Be careful when buying patterned socks as the loose yarn on the inside can catch in your baby's toes.

Consider buying socks with rubber designs that give traction when your child runs across a slippery floor.

Just received a pair of SNUFFLEPIGS as a gift - they're fantastic! Soft fleecy booties done up with a drawstring to really keep them on. DD wears them when she goes out in her sling and I'm confident that she has toastie toes and comes back with both still in place!

Some of my friends think this idea is not the best ever, but I think it's genius!

Having spent the last couple of years hunting for my 1 year old's socks every time we left the house or whenever his feet froze solid, it struck me. A simple solution...

Many of us attach a length of cord or ribbon to each of our kid's gloves, which we then thread through their coat. Their gloves are always available and never go missing.

So, why not do the same with socks, threading the ribbon through the trousers?! The socks will always follow your child around, even if they take them off!!
