How the heck do you keep baby socks on???

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Okay, so maybe it's silly, but DD's socks are driving me crazy.

She's 11 months, and happily removing her socks at every opportunity. Even when she doesn't mess with them, they fall off. I must spend half my day putting them back on. Anybody have any creative tips for ways to keep her darn socks on her feet?

I'm interested to see if anyone has figured this out, too! We've ended up just putting things with feet on DD when it's too cool for her not to be barefoot - she lived in sleepers in the winter and now that it's getting warmer, she's been wearing onesies or t-shirts with footed pants. Of course she kicks A LOT, so I always assumed that was why socks would never stay on.

We gave up on socks with the warm weather.

is she capable of removing both shoes and socks? if not, then shoes maybe the answer. Or try tights! can't do this with little boys (such a shame!) but girls totally can

I think whoever comes up with a good solution to this could possibly make a lot of money!

Our 8 month DD seems to like to always pull her left sock off. We went to get her out of her carseat when we got to church the other week, and no left sock... anywhere... she had to go sockless Of course, she probably didn't mind, she likes to suck on her toes

Our favorite socks that stay on the best are from sears, there were also some from burlington coat factory, but we could only find them in the 0-3 month size.

Old Navy roll down socks. They make DD mad, they're the only ones she can't pull off,which is her favourite game when she's in her car-seat.

Old Navy makes an ankle sock that stays on really well. Of course you can pull them off, but they rarely if ever fall off on their own. Putting Robeez (or something similar) over socks is anouther way to keep them on.

Lol. I'll have to try Old Navy ankle socks, socks are always falling off of dd's foot. Just one foot, though, it's pretty funny

Baby shoes are pretty much the only solution I know of, too.
You can get some super cute Robeez-style shoes on etsy for about 1/3 of the Robeez price. There are sellers who just make them out of cotton fabric, too, which would be good for the warmer months for a baby who's not walking yet.

I agree... I only buy the Carter's bubble socks for infants. They stay on great! As for pulling socks off, I either do the Ministar shoes from Target (like Robeez) or I just don't worry about it.

Robeez and then bare feet once the weather warms up. DS is pretty much in bare feet already, and we live in CO.

I like Old navy triple roll socks - they stay on for now. The newborn socks would just pop off like rubber bands. But DS hasn't figured out he has feet yet, so we haven't reached the point of pulling the socks off.

No, we use tights almost exclusively because they can't be pulled off and I can't lose half the pair.

Simple answer - I don't.

I figured out early on that if his feet are cold he'll leave the socks on. If he's not cold, he'll have them off in 30 seconds flat.

But I have been known to put on a pair of socks and then put a pair of babylegs over them, with the legs pulled down over his heel. I don't do that now that he's trying to crawl though.

I agree. Old Navy ankle socks are the BEST and never fall off (so far...). I also got some Little Missmatched socks as a gift and they are really good for not falling off too.
