The Original. Like you.
BabyLegs began when one mom needed a solution. Her baby had diaper rash, and she wanted to allow more air to get to the rash yet still keep her baby warm, so she cut off the feet of a pair of socks that fit her baby up to the thighs resulting in a cool pair of leg warmers. They ended up being great not just for warmth, but for protecting crawling knees, and making diaper changing and potty training easier! They have now become a "parenting essential" around the world. They are popular for legs AND arms of bigger kids! They are well known for the fun designs and practical use. They are especially popular with cloth diapering moms because they allow you to keep baby's legs warm without covering up the cute cloth diapers!
I received two pair of leg warmers and socks as well as a lovely pair of tights for review.
First, the leg warmers. These things are so great. I'll have to admit, I'd heard of BabyLegs for some time, and seen lots of pics of babies in cloth diapers and BabyLegs all over the place but I didn't get what the rage was all about. Eventually I realized that it was probably about not having to cover up cloth diapers in cooler weather, as they come in so many fun colors and prints, I know lots of moms hate to have to cover them up with clothes! They are great for that for sure, and I wish I'd decided to give them a chance sooner because they are GREAT for crawling knees as well.
Our entire home, except for stone tile in the bathrooms and laundry room is covered in hard, laminate flooring. Lydia has preferred scooting to crawling and it took a while for me to realize that it might be because of the hard floors, which was about the time that we started trying out these leg warmers, and sure enough...she's doing a lot more crawling all over the house now!!
They really do make diaper changing easier too. If it's not TOO cold, I definitely prefer keeping her in a diaper and baby legs because you don't have to take them on and off during changing! I keep them on under her pants too though when she is wearing them for an extra layer of warmth! Some of Lydia's pants come up a little when she's sitting in a stroller, so these also help keep her legs protected from the cold in that case.
They also come in lots of colors and designs and it's fun to match them to different outfits. Here they are on baby, before and after her first haircut :).

I love the fit of these socks. They have grippers on the bottom so they are also perfect for our baby and our floors as she's pulling up and standing on everything! They stay on her feet better than any other socks I've used so far (except when she pulls them off of course ;), and I think it's due to the shape having more of an angle at the heel. And of course, I love all the fun colors and designs! Here is one pair on baby! :)

And finally we really enjoyed these poetic tights. They fit Lydia perfectly, and stay up really well! No sagging in the waste/bottom OR legs! I definitely recommend them!
Through this experience, I have become a big fan of BabyLegs, especially the warmers, and plan to stock up on some more colors!
