I am trying to find those socks with tread (is that what you call it) for my 8 month old. it seems like they always run in larger sizes (for walkers) but with my lo pulling up on things, he is always slipping and sliding in his socks! can i buy tread to add to our current socks? or where have you all had luck finding some with tread????

A bunch of ours have tread, though DD certainly doesn't need it at this age. I'd have to check which ones to be sure, but I know the smart wool socks we have have treads, and I think the Trumpette ones do too...<br>
Maybe you could also try putting some soft-soled shoes on him? Seems like those would grip easier than socks, perhaps...

it's been like 2 years since I read it, but I remember someone had mentioned adding it to their little ones tights. I want to say they used rubber glue...it was some kind of glue.

Ditto!<br>
We have them on DD when we go out to keep her feet warm & socks on <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
even though she's just 4.5 mos & d/n really "need" them. We got ours at Target - Ministar by Bobux for like $13. Robeez might be nicer but they're around $30, so we're going cheaper right now.<br><br>
Also, I think Old Navy's baby socks have some tread on the bottom, not sure if it's enough but if there's one nearby you could check...<br><br>
HTH & GL!

I just got newborn socks from Old Navy and they have the no slip treads. I would imagine if it's on the newborn socks it would be on the larger sizes as well.

You can apply puffy paint to the bottom of your regular socks. You can get all different kinds of colors and make cute shapes and such. Hobby Lobby or Walmart is where I mainly find it.

Target, Old navy for all sizes up to at least 4T.<br>
I also got some cheap white low ankle socks with tread on them in a pack from either walmart or target. I think they are hanes.

Target has a pretty good selection of sizes and colors, and I think the treads on them start long before they could be walking, so you should be able to find some for your LO.<br><br>
At my Target, they are almost always on an end-cap near the baby section, although they also may be found elsewhere in the store.

i get them at childrens place - the words and stuff on the bottom are written in that tread plastic and its just enough to keep dd from slipping on the hard wood floor. they are also long enough so that i can pull them up high and they dont fall down as quickly.
