      Amazing product I would not do without

      When I was first given a pair of these I was a little confused in what the novelty of them but I soon learned they can be used for a range of things and keep baby cozy in the process. Baby legs are basically baby leg warmers that come in hundreds of designs and can be worn by all. They come in 2 sizes 33 cm Original and Organic Baby Legs Warmers fit most infants and 40 cm a little longer, with a lot of stretch, our Super Soft leg warmers will scrunch a little on your crawler, ankle to mid calf on your 4 year old. I would personally not use them myself but each to their own I suppose. They are perfect for keeping little one warm but providing convenience for parent as there is no fiddling to get the tights or trousers over the nappy and this also means they are not pushing a wet nappy on baby's skin causing irritation. They are perfect for potty training also my little girl is potty training at the moment and these help save little accidents when she gets frustrated with her trousers or tights and is unable to remove them before going to the toilet. While wearing these she feels more confident and she just has to pull her skirt up and can gain access to the toilet quickly. I think they are perfect for crawling although we didn't receive these until my daughter was walking they still came in very handy for when she decided she wanted a wonder on her hands and knees these helped cushion her while she was exploring. As we have wooden flooring its nice to have a little protection for little ones legs. Keep baby warm is the main use for baby legs are to help provide warmth and comfy for little one. They are lovely and snug and very soft keeping little one cozy at all times. They retail anywhere between £5-£8 but for the time they last and the quality of them I think these are actually amazingly priced and we now have a vast collections of designs and colours. They come up really good after a wash too hold there colour well and feel as soft as they do when you first get them. As they have a wide range for the age they can be worn for they last really well. We were given our Christmas 2 years back when my daughter was just 1 year old and now at nearly 3 they fit her just as well and the quality of them have proved to hold brilliantly for this whole time. They are supposed to be hand wash only but I have washed them with my colours since I got them and they have survived without even a bobble.

      A fab and funky alternative to tights

      I bought a two pairs of Babylegs when my daughter was around 4 months old. She absolutely loved rolling around without her nappy on and Babylegs meant that she would do that without getting chilly. Babylegs are legwarmers for babies, they are about 30cm long and fit from newborn upwards. They are worn from the top of the thigh to the ankle. Admittedly they are very scrunched up and chunky on a newborn, but they still do their job of keeping baby warm whilst allowing them to have some time without their nappy on. But the wonder of Babylegs does not end there! The challenge of changing a wriggly baby's nappy is halved if you don't have to mess around with tights/trousers. It was after the first day of taking my then 6 month old daughter out wearing tights that I went home, turned the computer on and ordered another 4 pairs of Babylegs! She didn't wear tights again until she was potty trained and able to manage them herself! As cloth nappy users this also meant we didn't have to worry about tights pressing on her nappy, which can cause cloth nappies to leak. It also meant we saved money as they fit for much longer than tights do (they basically fit 'forever', but obviously not from ankle to hip. My daughter still wears hers now, aged 3 and a half, from ankle to knee). Babylegs come in a seemingly never ending range of fantastically funky colours/patterns for both girls and boys. When I had my son last year my mother-in-law bought him a few pairs of his own (probably in pity as round the house he was wearing the lovely girly ones we already had!). He hasn't worn his as much as my daughter did. My daughter would wear hers almost daily in the winter months under her dresses. That said, we do still use them a lot. I carry him in a sling a lot and they are perfect for popping under his trousers to keep him warm. They don't ride up like trousers do so they keep him really cosy. Even in the summer months we always carry a pair round in our nappy bag incase it turns unexpectedly chilly. You can put them on in seconds, without even taking baby out of the pram/sling...which is perfect for our unpredictable British weather - and for when baby insists on crawling over rough ground as my son often did! They are also great for potty training as there is no messing around with trousers/tights. Perhaps the one downside is that they are handwash only. However, I have washed ours in the machine several times and they did survive. In the early days when they were a staple part of my daughters wardrobe I did handwash them as I wanted to keep them looking nice. They didn't need washing after every wear though (in my opinion!) and I would just wait until they were all dirty and wash them all in one go. We have now been using our first lot of Babylegs for around 3 years. I have gone over them with a bobble remover a few times to smarten them up a bit, but they are still in pretty good condition. I paid around £5 - £6 a pair for mine. They can cost as much as £9, but if you shop around you can still get them for around £7. I really think they are worth every penny. They are so much easier to use than tights...and will fit your child for much longer!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great idea to keep babies legs and knees safe and warm.

        Odd as it sounds, Baby Legs are basically a type of leg warmers for babies, ones that are put onto the legs to not only keep them warm but to stop the babies knees from getting sore. I bought a pair of these several years ago for my little boy, and his pair looked like the one in the photo, although there are several designs available and can suit both boys and girls. I bought them initially to stop his knees getting as scuffed when he'd crawl off at speed around the house, but found that they were much more useful thatn for just when he was crawling. I bought these for around £10 a few years ago I think, but they are now cheaper and more widely available - currently selling on Amazon for £8.95. The 'leg warmers' are easy to put on, just like thick tights but without a crotch area, and they come in one standard 33cm size, which I found to be plenty long enough for my son at the time. Not only did I use them for when he was crawling around, to keep his knees from getting sore and red, but I found that in colder months, they were really good leg warmers in general, adding an extra layer to keep him warmer under his trousers. The material is soft and was comfortable for him to wear, and he had nearly a year's wear out of them before they really were too tight for him. I remember the only downside to this item being the fact they are hand wash only, as it would have been nice to pop them in the main wash at times. Other than that minor issue though, I think these are a great idea. I think there are other similar things out there these days, but I don't think anyone would regret buying these, even if the price isn't particularly cheap.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great for babies

        My son used these when he was a baby and I have also bought some for my niece. They are like mini leg warmers for babies and are perfect for keeping their legs warm. The BabyLegs come in many different colours and sizes. I bought my son the first size which fits from birth to 3 years. They are elasticated on the top and the bottom to help them stay in place. They sit at the top of the leg and fit just over the ankle or on the foot. They are made from 80% cotton, 15% polyester and 5% spandex so are very comfortable to wear and keep their legs lovely and warm. I used these on my son when he was learning to crawl. Although he would wear rompers we had a wooden floor and his knees were always bright red and looked sore. A friend recommended these and they were ideal. He would wear them under his romper and his knees would have a little bit of extra padding. I would also use them on him when the weather was cold and he had started walking. If he didn't sit in his pram with a blanket then I would put these on under his trousers and they would protect him against the cold weather. They are very handy when nappy changing as you don't have to undo poppers and take legs out of rompers. You already have instant access! They can be used when potty training too, to keep legs warm. My son was potty trained in the summer months but I know of friends who have just used these instead of putting trousers on the child. My son wore his until he was about 2. They were ideal to wear under welly boots as they stopped any rubbing. They started to leave little red rings around the top of his legs so he stopped wearing them. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again if I had another baby as they were ideal. The ones I bought for my niece were £6.50 which is for one pair. Not a bad price considering the use she will have out of them!

          Disadvantages

          Protects baby when they are on the move.

          I bought my daughter a pair of baby legs when she started to crawl to go under a dress as they were easier for access to her nappy and provided her with better movement whilst protecting the delicate skin on her knees. Baby legs look like mini leg warmers, I know they sound an odd thing to stick on your baby but they were designed by a mum whose daughter suffered from bad nappy rash and wanted to give her nappy free time whilst keeping her warm. They come in a standard size of 33cm and many different designs, which are designed to fit every baby. When my daughter was crawling she had quite small legs so they covered up to her thighs. I bought my pair off Amazon for about £9 plus postage, I did find that they weren't easy to find as not many places stock them. I bought 2 pairs, one with pink polka dots and one with blue polka dots as they went with most of her clothes. They seemed to fit quite well and my bubba was comfy in them. I noticed her legs were well protected and they didn't end up red after crawling around. My only problem was when using them without a nappy on, she had accidents and they are only hand washable so I had to put a little bit of an extra effort into cleaning them but they wore well. Once we got past the crawling stage, I found them a bit useless but when napping she started to throw off her blanket so I stuck these on her which kept her warm. One of my friends used them whilst potty training her little boy and she said it just made it easier without having to mess around with trousers. I think I would recommend these, they are more expensive than a pair of tights but they are a real help.

            Didn't work out for us but a lovely idea

            Baby legs are like leg warmers for babies and toddler, they come in one size fits all which they claim will do for up to about the age of 3. I decided to buy some when my son was a couple of months old as he had been born at the end of August and was bought a lot of clothes from the summer range as gifts but it quickly turned cold so I thought if I had these he could wear his shorts and short romper suits. I thought they were a great idea and really cute, especially for little girls. My partner wasn't keen on my son wearing them, but as I dressed him most days that didn't really matter. They did keep his legs warm and he seemed comfortable enough in them however I found that they slipped down his legs quite a bit even though the elastic was quite tight and did leave red marks. Because of this he hasn't worn them very much although he does still like to play with them!

              highly recommended

              I bought my son a pair of baby legs when he started crawling as his knees often seemed to look red on an evening after crawling round. I bought them from the baby legs as they we not widely available but now there is a wide range of stockists. Amazon have them for £8.95 a pair plus postage What are baby legs? Baby legs look like leg warmers which was designed by a stay at home mom Nicole Donnelley for her daughter who was suffering with bad nappy rash and wanted to be able to give her plenty of nappy free time. They come in a standard size of 33cm which is designed to fit all. There are a couple of variations. They cover the baby's knees and came up to my son's thighs when he first wore them. They come in a range of designs and colours some that do tend to look gender specific. My experience I bought a pair of the baby legs with the polka dot design as I thought my son l suited pale blue and most of his clothes were that colour. I put them on and they seemed to fit them comfortably. He was at the age where he didn't like been dressed but once dressed he didn't care what he wore. He wore them quite comfortably and happily crawled around. I was happier when he was crawling round nappy free that I didn't have to worry about his knees. I did notice that he did have less red knees. Once he was walking they ended up going to the back of the cupboard but last winter my son developed a fascination with his knees and while been pushed around in his buggy would pull his trouser legs up to have a look and show them off to the world. To ensure his beautiful knees and legs were kept warm I retrieved his Baby legs out and he would happily wear them while out but once home he wanted them removed along with his shoes and coat. The one disadvantage I did find was that they are only hand wash .As they were used for Bum free time he did have the odd accident. I did purchase a second pair which was also pale blue but a bubble design. They have washed and worn well considered how much use they have had. These are great for little ones who are at a crawling age and particularly useful for boys to wear under there trousers to keep there legs warm during the cold winter months.

                Disadvantages

                A great idea if your baby prefers the freedom of being in just a nappy without cold legs!

                I love babylegs leg warmers but I have to be honest my husband hates them on my son. To some it seems a bit weird to put leg warmers on a baby when really you could just put on a pair of trousers but there are some great advantages. 1) To show off my son's gorgeous cloth nappies (now that won't apply to all I know but you can show off any nappy lol) 2) No more struggling to get trousers off a wriggly baby or to get them back on 3) Increased mobility my son rolls around more when he's not wearing trousers but these still keep his legs warm 4) Put them under trousers when you're out to stop cold legs when trousers ride up 5) There are so many fab patterns 6) I grew up in the 80s so there's some nostalgia with leg warmers! I've written this from a boy's point of view because I don't have a daughter but they would be better for a girl because of the amazing girly patterns, and they would be a great alternative to tights to keep legs warm and nappys accessible. I bought mine off ebay for about £8 with free postage. There are imitation babylegs on ebay, 3 pairs for a fiver. Lots of online independent baby shops stock them too and the price is usually about £6. Some shops don't have all the patterns though so it's worth doing a bit of browsing. The only downside is to make sure they last longer you need to handwash them. But I have used the gentle wash cycle in my machine but it did stretch them a little bit.
