I’ve been sorta obsessed with BabyLegs ever since I decided to cloth diaper two years ago.
I first came across an adorable striped pair, made to perfectly match the color palette of the BumGenius diapers I was buying, and decided to buy them. I loved them!
If you aren’t familiar with BabyLegs, they are leg warmers made for children. Not 80’s Flashdance-style leg warmers that puddle up around your ankles above your Reebok hightops – useful and cute leg warmers that keep your little one’s legs both warm and scrape-free. They can also be used as arm warmers for older children.
Cloth diapers not required. 😉
Where we live on the coast, it doesn’t get too cold here, but what does happen – three seasons out of the year! – is that our mornings will often start out cool and it’ll warm up considerably. BabyLegs have been great for those days, because I put them on Nathan with shorts (or just a diaper) and then quickly remove them once it warms up. Easy peasy.
What I didn’t realize about BabyLegs until recently (because I had stocked up on them early on) is that they’ve added new products that we NEED. One of those is a bug-repellent line (“BabyNoBugs”) of BabyLegs. The company sent me a pair to try, as well as one of their sun protection UPF 50+ (“Baby Cool”) styles, and some cute Jurassic Stripe baby socks. (True confession: I’m a big fan of fun socks – when I was in high school I had different colors and styles for every outfit, no joke.)
Nathan tried out the BabyNoBugs pair this weekend, and they worked great.
The gulf coast humidity is a breeding ground for all sorts of vicious insects, so I know of which I speak. In fact, there’s no doubt that said insects were in the vicinity, because while I was photographing Nathan for this blog post, I was bitten numerous times while he remained unscathed.
We tried the Baby Cool ones at the beach a few days ago – they are super cute – but between arriving late and leaving early (Sarah Kate had a stomachache), I wasn’t able to get any good photos in the harsh sunlight. I was a little nervous about using them without bottled sunscreen at the beach for an extended period of time, anyway (gulf coast sunshine + white sand beaches = cautious Andi), so I plan a few test runs in the yard this week. I’ll be sure to post some sunny BabyLegs photos on Violet Film as my photo of the day when I do.
But enough of my gushing over BabyLegs…
