My mum got Lyra socks that are "gagou tagou" brand (I think she got them at babies r us?) and they stay up really well. We also have some that have little silicone stay-ups in them (like thigh high tights have)

I use 18mo socks on our 4 month old - the ones her sister just outgrew. The don't look too goofy & never fall off.

up to 18mos! although i couldn't see using them much once babe was walking, as they have no tread. they would get nastified pretty quickly! lol. perfect for around the house and just for keeping those toes warm in the cooler months.

We don't use socks...I figure she takes them off b/c she doesn't want them on, so why bother. Strangers comment on her bare feet, but honestly if they are commenting on that maybe they will leave me alone about something else. LOL. We are in CT so it is starting to warm up, but in the colder weather I always covered her with a blanket when we went out. Once in a blue moon we did socks and those days I just fought with them continuously.

We usually just leave her barefoot unless we are out, then I use footed pants or in cooler weather the fleece coverall things with the feet in them.
Robeeze and similar type shoes help when they are walking a bit but they aren't very waterproof.

I didn't worry about it. If the baby takes the socks off, they must not want them on IMO. We kept ours barefoot in home. I rarely go anywhere, but if I did I would just put soft soled baby shoes on them like moccasins...

To begin to save the world, we must first nurture the children. Read "The Continuum Concept: In Search of Happiness Lost"    saynovax.gifgoorganic.jpgintactlact.gifMe-hippie.gifreading.gifhelp.gif10.5 yo dd1- nut.gifreading.gifblahblah.gif ; 5 yo dd2- angel.gifhearts.gifbouncy.gif

Once it hits 50* outside, I cease to put socks on my kids until their up and wandering around in parks/stores/restaruants/etc and need both socks AND shoes. Its just not worth the hassle. Even in the winter, when its cold, I have been known to not require/put socks on my kids. Get some dirty looks, but whatever. Baby socks are simply *not* worth the hassle, IMO

I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER!!!!!

I've been contemplating this same question for months (10 to be exact) and during an unscheduled stop at Creative Kidstuff the other day and noticed these. Bought them immediately and they are amazing!!!!! Sock Ons are the way to go for sure.

this is what we do. millie has heck trying to get them off lol! we have the 18-36 mo size and fold them over. i originally got then because the socks in her size cut the circulation off of her fat legs/feet.
