Hot. Wow.


Anyways - 3 year old wears them, 8 month old wears them. Both boys. All sorts of rainbow and pink yadda. Never a comment, I'm pretty sure I scare folks away.

Wyatt wears them quite often and we have never received rude comments about them.

Ds wore them when he was a little younger...I never recieved one off comment...sorry you had to listen to those.

However....my dh HATED them, LOL....and thought they were "girly."

DS has two pairs, and I never thought of them as "for girls." The only person who's ever commented on them negatively was my mom, who thinks they're, "stupid-looking," but she thinks they're equally "stupid" on DS and DD2, so it's not a gender thing. Granted, DS's are the black ones with skull and crossbones, and a pair of army green and khaki stripes, which are both typically "boy" patterns.

My ds wears them, and some of the are pink and have zebra print hearts. He also wears tights and barretts. When people say anything we say, "we are actively trying to make him gay." that usually shuts them up (and its no lie)

Also if they ask you what DH thinks of them say "who said there was a dh?"

If leg warmers make you "gay" then I guess hockey players are gay.

6 yo ds is a hockey player. He wears hockey socks over his shin guard/knee pads. Hockey socks are big leg warmers that my dh tapes down so thy don't slide during play.

Solely out of curiosity, not trying to be mean AT ALL, but what, exactly, isn't a lie?

We have the rainbow baby legs for ds too!

I have some socks from sock dreams that match them.

my hubby's not a big fan of them (no idea about other ppl) but i use them anyway. i like using them under pants in winter the best b/c then the little one's legs don't get cold between the sock and pant leg DH doesn't mind that but when i just wear them with a diaper, i don't think he loves them. it's just at home so it's not biggie.

Hee. We didn't have any baby legs for our 3 yo DS but a friend of mine gave me some for the babe we're expecting. Rainbow ones. For our boy baby. I can't wait to see him in them, along with the little tie dyes, some of which are pink! LOL

We definitely get attitude for pushing boundaries. DS has long blonde hair, he drinks from pink cups, his fave colors were pink and purple until last month when he decided green is the next big thing. I will never understand the hang ups people have about this stuff.

My son wears them all the time (9.5 months) in all kinds of colors and we never had a negative or weird comment. I love them. Especially for an EC baby. Can't imagine not having them!
post #33 of 60
I never ended up getting them for my son, but I see them on boys all the time and never thought of them as gender specific.

Well, my son wears Hanna Andersson tights to keep warm in winter - he has chocolate brown and navy blue for winter. He wears them under snowpants and such - they work GREAT. Our nanny was from Austria and she used to put both of the twins (boy/girl) in tights and I admit the first time I kind of did a double-take but she said in Europe all little boys wear tights to stay warm in the winter, and then I realized how stupid it was to worry about it. He also wears Baby Legs and everyone is usually so busy ooohing and ahhhing over them, I've never gotten a single weird comment.

The only comments we get are how freakin cute they are! We have argyle ones that are a big hit. So adorable. DS2 wears them daily. We have 5 pairs!

DS1 likes to wear them on his arms sometimes too, but that's more for novelty.

I'm sorry you have to deal with such strange comments. Viva la babylegs!
post #36 of 60
so weird about that, people have asked me, too what my husband thinks about the babylegs. of course these are people that don't know my husband - cause he could absolutely not care less - in fact he thinks they are cool looking.

here's my boy in a pair i made - http://www.flickr.com/photos/andreas...7602299209121/

Wait, are you actively trying to make your son gay? What, exactly, is the lie?

That's off.

I saw that and am giving her the benefit of the doubt, that it was just a typo or something

My son wears the rainbow babylegs and i get a lot of comments like, "He is going to hate you when he's older." or "You're going to turn him gay."

I just say, if legwarmers were all it took to turn you gay then those of us who grew up in the 80s wouldn't be procreating.
