Should just go ahead and rename themselves "Free Shipping". Why is it that I always find myself one pair of babylegs away from free shipping when I shop online?

Babylegs
They are too cute. DD has the rainbow striped ones.

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!

Babylegs ROCK! My local cloth diaper/nursing/wooden toys/sling, etc store carries them. It's an addiction!

Those are my thoughts exactly! It's a good excuse, anyway!

I just got a couple of pairs. I love them - they are so cute but I find they really dig into DD's little thighs so I have to push them down. She looks like she should be in 'Flashdance.'
Will they stretch eventually? It says they are one size fits all.

I love Babylegs! DD looks so cute in them with her fat little thighs sticking out. They're very handy with her learning to crawl and not having pants getting in the way. I couldn't spend $12 a pair on them though, so I made my own. I made 8 pairs for about $15. :

i love the navy blue with stars one, blue herringbone (these didn't hold up as well), and some super soft blue ones. We also have a pair of the wool.

I know the last thing y'all want is another fun baby website but we recently did a coop with huggalugs-- the australian version of babylegs. They're FABULOUS.

DS is a scrawny, long and skinny kiddo, and even so I hate how the babylegs are so tight that they leave marks on his little thighs. The huggalugs are not nearly so tight. They are easier for him to pull off, though. But I think they are also softer than the babylegs.

Distraction is not the same thing as play.

I'm not crafty enough to make them from scratch. I made them from women's tube socks. This is what I used to make them: http://www.flickr.com/photos/babyhop...57594274454468

It was really simple- and quite addicting.

I totally need to make some. I love the former sock ones, but I'm thinking of knitting some, too, once I figure out the dimensions.

DD wears babylegs all the time - and most of the time strangers think she's a boy!

I'm even less crafty. I cut off the feet of a pair of striped knee socks and didn't even hem them. They still work.

I LOVE these things! My dd is just 3 weeks, but I am hoping to get her in hers for the first time soon. I think her chubby little legs could hold them up!
