So. Leg Warmers. BabyRoX wears them often, and I get comments on them every time I take him out and about with his leg warmers on. We LOVE them! For a variety of reasons… which I will list for you here:

1. Diaper changes/potty time – WAY easier. No pants to pull on and off, only the three snaps on his onesie (and not even that if he has just a t-shirt and a cute cloth diaper on!), compared to some of the baby outfits that have like 10 snaps on the legs.

2. Knee protection! Now that he is trying to crawl – and soon will be crawling – the leg warmers protect his sweet, soft little knees from rug burns.

3. Warming up/cooling off is super quick. Infants’ bodies don’t adjust as easily to temperature changes so the leg warmers make it easy to quickly warm him up or cool him down – just pull them on and off, no major outfit changes needed!

4. OMG cute factor. There are so many colors and patterns to choose from! We have all kinds of stripes, we have some that look like fire trucks, some with little monsters all over them, a pair with scout badges, an argyle pair, a polka dot pair, a pair with monkeys and stars, and the list goes on. It’s easy to jazz up an outfit and mix-and-match for a variety of looks. They are oh-so-cute and I just can’t resist stocking up when there is a sale online.

Which brings me to the question you’re all asking - where can we get these awesome leg warmers? I need to buy a bunch and carry them around with me because other moms are always asking me where to find them, and I could totally whip some out and make a sale, but… I don’t feel like being a middleman. Er, woman. So here’s where I get them: Amazon and BabyLegs.com. Amazon has several brands I’ve tried: Ema Jane is a great brand for the newborns or kids with really tiny legs. BabyRoX has outgrown these already because he has such delicious thighs. My Little Legs is another brand you can find on Amazon and those are bigger – they fit great now, and length-wise, there is plenty of room to grow, too. And then the BabyLegs brand can also be purchased on Amazon, or you can purchase directly from their site. They have the largest selection, and they offer newborn size and a larger size. Every so often they have sale days on BabyLegs and you can get them for $4.99/pair. I’d wait for the sale, personally.

Oh, and this post is in no way sponsored – I just get asked about the leg warmers ALL.THE.TIME. and we are big fans of them, so I’m sharing the love! Happy shopping!

    Also, depending on your crafty skills, I've seen a bunch of free patterns on how to sew / knit / crochet such baby leggings. The leggings on BabyRoX are super cute though.
