Points to remember
- According to my experience linen can be a good option for babies in summers as it is very comfortable & sweat free, it is soft & light which gives a comfortable touch to the tiny legs of your baby even while on instep double jogging stroller.
- For winter obviously you should go with woolen material as it is a warm & cozy ,good for winters but it should not be under covered because with this type of design there can be chances of air flow towards legs so for safety purpose buy above ankle length woolen socks.
- Rest of the material like nylon, silk & polyester etc can be used occasionally like in outing or as a matching accessory with your baby’s dress. But these materials are good for rainy season because it is easy to wash & maintain. It looks pretty on the little legs of babies.
Fashion socks come in a variety of heights: ankle, mid-calf (most common), and over the calf. Fashion socks with elastics have solved this recurring sock-pull problem as Traditional dress socks have a reputation of slipping down the leg but you should also check the elastic, always buy high quality brand for that.
You get socks in every color but in winters you should go with dark or bright colors & for summers light colors because it protects your baby from sun bun. Colorful socks seem to be very attractive & it can also contain some cartoon graphics which looks pretty fashionable.
Tight-fitting garments like socks and tights can irritate delicate baby skin & it can leads to allergy, rashes and itching. Check the baby’s skin after undressing her to be sure there is no reaction occurrence or dermatitis. Also check the reaction of baby’s while dressing her or him with socks, if you feel it awful then avoid that particular material as skin of babies are very sensitive with reference to a particular material.
