Baby Legs

The other day I bought a pair of these ever so popular Baby Legs and my husband was a little baffled. Here is how our conversation went:

"Look at these cute new baby legs!"

"Baby legs....what are baby legs?"

"They are like a leg warmer accessory for babies!"

"I don't get it?"

"What don't you get? They make diaper changing easier, and keep his legs warm!"

"Don't pants keep his legs warm?"

At this point I am a little flustered...

"They are a cute accessory for babies, I wouldn't expect you to understand. Maybe it's a woman thing."

So even though he still doesn't really "understand" baby legs, I don't care. I love them.

Pros: I like the reason that they were created. A mom was trying to air out her baby's bum from diaper rash. She didn't want her baby's legs to get cold so she created a pair of baby legs for her to heal. They also serve the purpose of easier diaper changing. If your baby is wearing a onesie and pants, there is one more thing to get through to change a diaper. However, with the baby legs, you just have to deal with the onesie. Baby legs come in different varieties: An Original, Supersoft, Vermont Organic Cotton, and Vermont Organic Wool. We have a pair of the original. They are a lot like a warm sock and are a cotton, polyester, spandex blend. They are so cute and come in tons of different designs as well. These are popular not only with girls but boys. I probably wouldn't put these on my little guy when he gets a little older, but they are great while he is still a small baby. They are great for crawling too as they help protect those little knees. I've seen them also worn on little girls in place of tights. I've heard they are also great little kids and potty training.

Cons: After a couple washes, our baby legs started piling a bit but I guess that is to be expected. I'm not sure how the supersoft or organic hold up as we don't have either of those. They tend to leave marks on Rowan's thighs as I mentioned before because he is a little chubby. I'm also finding myself pulling them up quite a bit.

I've been interested in these for Mady's knees getting rug burns. She's been wearing a lot of pants but you're so right, changing the diaper with pants + onsie is sometimes a pain. I will definitely look for these!
