We live in the city, so most of our outings are stroller outings. And about 95% of the time when we go out, I end up having to backtrack at some point in time to try to find the socks that Vivian has kicked off mid-walk. Same thing when we're at church or any other group activity- Vivian gets passed around to her adoring crowd and when she comes back to me, she's sockless.
That's why I was so excited when I was sent a pair of Stay With Me socks to review. These are seriously cool, one of those "why hasn't this occurred to someone before!" inventions. I'm so glad that someone (a mom, naturally) finally invented them!
The socks are a nice cotton, polyester, spandex blend, very soft for your baby's feet. And the ingenious part of the socks is the velcro strap- this means that the socks can be adjusted in the front or back of the baby's ankle's to the proper tightness for your baby's feet, so they stay put! No falling off during all the baby wiggles!
The velcro also is great for looping the socks together so that they don't get separated and lost in the wash. I can't tell you how many socks there are in my "one sock out of the pair" pile these days. Baby socks are so little and so hard to keep track of!
Vivian wore her cute pink-striped socks all day today and they truly did stay put. We went all the way to the Children's Museum and back with no backtracking to find lost socks. They even stayed on when I was putting her in and taking her out of her sling- which is generally a big sock-loss time for us. I love these socks and will definitely put them on my "must buy" list for baby showers from now on!
You can buy the socks on the Stay With Me site, they sell for $6.50 per pair of socks. You can get them in size 0-3 months or 3-14 months. They come in a variety of stripe colors, so you can get them to match all your baby's outfits!
Two lucky readers are going to win a pair of Stay With Me socks! I have one pair of blue striped socks and one pair of pink striped socks to give away, both in the 0-3 month size.
Let me know if you would like the pink socks or the blue socks and who they would be for.
