There are few things cuter than itty bitty baby toes, especially when they are covered by adorable little socks! However, baby socks are good for more than just making our babies look extra cute. They also help keep little toes warm and protected and can offer nonslip features for little walkers for added stability. Here are some we recommend.
What to Consider When Purchasing Baby Socks
Which baby socks will be right for your little one? There a few keys points you can consider to make sure you’re getting the best socks:
- Size: Make sure they will fit! Baby socks are generally sized by month range (newborn, 1-3 months, 3-6 months, and so on). Babies will generally wear the size of their age, with a few exceptions for larger or smaller babies.
- Thickness: If the socks are for the warmer months, then it’s best to opt for a lighter pair. If they are to keep baby’s toes warm in the cold, then purchase a thicker pair.
- Nonslip Feature: For babies learning to walk, nonslip socks are a great option. They generally have little sticky tabs on the bottom (sometimes in a fun and cute design) and help keep the baby stable on slippery floors (such as hardwood or tile).
- Material: The fewer things against brand new sensitive skin, the better. There are plenty of organic socks made of soft cotton without harsh chemicals that could irritate the baby.
- Tightness: Baby socks are meant to be comfortable, so make sure there are no bands around their ankles that will be too tight and uncomfortable for the little one.
