Anyone recommend a good sock that fits well and stays on? Any tricks to making socks stay?

Thanks!!

my best solution was footed pants/sleepers. Socks didn't stay on for a long time!

I agree with the PP. I bought preemie socks at BRU and they must have been for micropreemies, they were so tiny! They were stretchy, but just rolled right off.

You could try putting a ponytail holder on the cuff to hold them up, since baby won't be grabbing it and trying to stuff it in her mouth.

We always used sleepers with our preemie.

The Carters brand really soft socks (the really fuzzy ones...go to a store and you will know what I mean!) stay on better than anything else we tried. We also picked up some Smart Wool baby socks for cold days.

We used sleepers a lot too but when we used socks, it was just Newborn 0-3 month size, they were basically knee-highs on DD but atleast they stayed up!
