Socks — and the socks you choose — become even more important as baby begins to toddle around the house. You’ll want to be certain to outfit baby with a pair of no-slip socks to encourage those early steps and prevent any toppling over. Read on for the best baby socks to meet every need.
Baby socks aren’t only adorable, they are an essential layer that helps to keep your little one warm. Yes, even newborns can and should wear socks, especially in winter when you’re venturing outdoors. (They can likely skip them in the summer, as long as they’re indoors and/or not in direct sunlight.)
Best Baby Socks Overall
LA Active Athletic Crew Grip Socks
These affordable crew socks have garnered thousands of rave reviews from parents. Why? First and foremost, the thick cotton/poly/Spandex blend socks really and truly do stay put on little feet. The soles are covered from heel to toe with non-slip grippers that help prevent slipping and sliding in new walkers and tots who are always on the go. While they’re labeled as “do not tumble dry,” in practice, parents report they haven’t had any issues after months of tossing them in the dryer on low heat. One potential downside is that the thick socks may not work with sneakers that are tight-fitting, though they tend to work better with boots.
Best Baby Knee High Socks
Hudson Baby 8-Pack Forest Knee-High Socks in Grey
Taller socks like these that hit just below the knee naturally stay on better since they aren’t easy for baby to kick off. Plus, they help to keep baby’s ankles and calves warm should your little one’s pants ride up or if you’re dressing baby in shorts for the too cute vintage look. The woodsy animals are pretty adorable and come in a pink version, too. The soft and stretchable socks are machine-washable.
Best Baby Socks That Stay On
Sock Ons Classic Socks in White
Just as the name promises, these sock covers really do help socks stay on. Layer the Socks On over a regular pair of socks, and the open toe and heel design helps them work with just about any style of socks. The combo helps to keep your little one’s toes nice and toasty warm, while limiting the ability to kick the socks off (meaning you won’t be putting them back on 100 times a day). Talk about a win-win! The cotton socks are machine-washable.
