I have a 4 month old, and when she has socks on for a while, her little feet get really stinky! Like toe jams! Does anyone else have a baby with stinky feet? They are almost as bad a my DH's!

And she gets a daily bath too! To remedy her stinky feet, I put her diaper rash ointment on her feet, (zinc oxide) and it cures it for the rest of the day...

I just thought it was so funny for tiny little feet to smell!!

Ds's feet have always been stinky.
Dh says they're not stinky- they just smell like feet

ROFL - DD has stinky feet too. Stangely enough, one more than the other. Socks make it worse, but I just think it's cute! Gets a bath once a week or so. If her feet really stink, they get a little mini bath!

My 8mo ds has stinky feet too if he wears socks all day or a footed sleeper. They mostly get stinky in the toes, and to me smell like vinegar. I have been a tad worried... I keep thinking, "my God, if his feet stink now, what are they going to smell like when he gets older?" He gets a bath daily.

LOL my ds is 11 months and has ALWAYS had stinky feet - peeechooo (we tell him). It's worse when he crawls/stands around the house barefoot because then they smell like dog hair too, no matter how much I vacuum!

DS's feet are stinky. I hold them up to my nose and go "sttttttiiiiinnnnky feet" and then pull away. He thinks it is hilarious. I think it is cute.

Hehe! We play the "stinky piggies" game.

What about a nice smelling powder, like the Burt's Bees buttermilk stuff? I'll bet stinky damp feets would appreciate the dryingness of the powder.

Interesting. My dd has stinky feet too - though I don't remember her brother having this. Dh doesn't think they stink -but they do.

I love all of the smells too! I guess it's part of the total package of "baby-ness"! We tell DS he has "cheesey feet" and nibble them...He thinks it's the funniest thing in the world!

"Hey, mama!" to the fried dough lovin', monkey-boy.joy.gifI'm back and ready to chat!

Yep, our 6 month old has stinky feet. We just think it's funny. We also have a stinky feet game that he loves.

All the smells are great! When he was really teething and his shirt would get soaked I loved that too.To me it smelled like his sweet milky breath. I always sniff his mouth - so does the dog but I try not to compare. My husband thinks its kind of strange but I love it all.
