Does anyone else find that socks do NOT stay on baby feet?
For this reason, I have become obsessed with finding the best baby gro with feet.
It’s a pretty bleak market out there, I have to tell you.
Many of the suits I’ve tried have been too thin, too stiff or made of the kind of fabric that gives you a prickling sensation when you touch it.
It doesn’t seem to make much difference how much money you spend – my baby’s most haute couture suit is ridiculously long in the leg and yet too tight around the tummy.
I have had some success though – here are my favs:
The perfect sleepsuit
I’ve been disappointed with some of M&S’s children’s clothes recently but when it comes to sleep suits they get it right – good quality fabrics, easy poppers and pretty patterns.
Go for one of their (very reasonably priced) multi packs and you won’t look back.
The day grow
One of my favourite baby grows ever came from H & M – an all-in-one suit (with feet, of course) that looks like it’s a Breton top and a pair of grey trousers.
Sadly it’s discontinued, otherwise I’d have bought it in every size. I’ve searched high and low for similar suits and there don’t seem to be any other footed varieties ALTHOUGH Petit Bateau does a similar thing without feet.
Also at Petit Bateau is this snazzy footed suit and cardigan ensemble. In the SALE. Available in blue and pink.
For extra cosiness
Another of my favourite suits has been a fleece dinosaur number from Carter’s, an inexpensive American brand that you can find at Alex and Alexa (or pay an horrendous amount on shipping costs).
Fleece suits are great baby daywear if your house is as cold as ours, and they’re very cuddly.
If you can’t find a Carter’s fleece (there don’t seem to be any available at the moment in the UK), Next is the next best thing (sorry).
