You’ve got the cutest little…baby legs!

October 9th, 2008

We had so many clothes for Maddie from yard sales, our baby shower gifts, other gifts from family and friends, and generous hand-me-downs from friends. Most of these clothes were in smaller sizes, and recently Maddie finally needed clothes for the first time. I have been excited about shopping for her! The biggest challenge in developing Maddie’s wardrobe is her mobility. She’s crawling and cruising all over the place. She can’t wear the footie sleepers or fancy dresses to play as they just get in her way and make her very frustrated.

Catherine (our talented photographer friend) had given Maddie some Baby Legs leg warmers a while back. After talking to my friend Shannon about clothing choices for mobile babies, we decided to give them a try. They have worked very well for keeping her baby legs warm without impeding her crawling. And I think they are so cute! Shannon recommended Crawler Covers for some handmade baby leg warmers. We ordered 6 pairs, pictured at the top of this post. They are so cute! I have been pretty happy with them, though I think it would help to have more shorts or skirts to cover the gap between the onesie and the leg warmers. I will warn that some of the infant sized Crawler Covers are smaller than I anticipated. I think that Maddie could have worn the regular sized ones (and would be able to wear them longer). We have one more pair that we found at Target (not sure of the brand) that is pictured in our sneak peeks.

Here’s Maddie wearing her purple Crawler Covers leg warmers:

And here she is in her polka dotted Baby Legs:
