Baby Socks That Stay On...

Sockies simply slither off, (sometimes helped along by a pookie hand or mouth) so you yank them back up again and again and again. Roughly 60 squillion times a day; until you're giving some serious thought to duct taping them on.

Old Navy Crew socks, we picked up a four pack in store, but their online exclusive deal will net you 6 pairs for $8.50. They come in pink or grey and they seem to have miraculous staying power. So that's one less thing to think about.

I also love Carter's kick-proof socks...they're a little tricky to find, but they are truly kick-proof (and even though they're usually sized starting at 6 or 12 mo, they fit newborns just fine!)
