As I sit here under my blanket, my feet are freezing. I am an adult so I can choose to put on socks, slippers, or shoes as well as just cranking the heat. Our little babies don’t get such choices so we must do our best to keep their feet warm in the winter. What’s a rookie mom to do?
Let’s break it down and share some of the warmest, cutest, most practical solutions to keeping baby toes toasty!
Modern baby booties are often made with fleece and can be adjusted with velcro to keep them on. Since babies who often can’t find their own thumbs manage to pull them off when we’re not looking, I suggest you don’t spend a ton on these. Cozy booties can be had for less than $10 and since most of these infants aren’t playing in the snow, features can be minimal.
If your little one is a new walker and the weather is particularly harsh, check out the many designs of Stonz boots. They can be worn barefoot, with socks, or even with a sherpa lining if it is really cold out there. Brrrr. Developed in Canada, these babies are tough (and they cost more to boot)!
Robeez soft-soled shoes are a squeezy little leather blob that can keep socks in place and offer a small padding for new walkers. Rookie mom, Sarah H., says Robeez work well for protecting her little guys’ feet when learning how to walk. I’m a fan, too.
Other ideas to stay cozy
I was a big fan of the BundleMe, a cozy blanket foot muff that is attached to your car seat or stroller like a mini sleeping bag. Since my personal use, I have read mixed reports as to whether they are safe with various car seat models. I suggest you do your own research. 1600 positive amazon reviews can’t be wrong, can they?
