Ds is still tiny but i'm thinking about getting him some clothes now that are not sleepsuits.
Went today to try to find some dungarees etc with feet sewn-in as can't be arsed with the faff of baby socks and was only able to find one outfit that fits the bill!

Am I the only person whose heart sinks at the thought of washing and pairing up baby socks? AIBU to want sewn-in feet in clothes for babies too small to be walking yet?

I found footless fleecey ones on lindex! Even better than a snowsuit as she lives in a sling and so bulky snowsuits are tricky. They also have loads of nice footless pyjamas.

Sainsburys still had footless snow suits in today

just found this thread.

I have had the same issue for months. I ordered a couple of pairs from vertbaudet last week - the '2 in 1 harem pants' in 'camel' (what colour is a camel anyway) and the taupe footed trousers.

The camel ones didn't arrive - I got sent some other sort of footed leggings with a rabbit on, in the wrong size hmm so they went back - none the wiser as to what 2 in 1 means.

The taupe ones are almost useless, they are nice looking but there's no elastic in the waist so after being worn for about 5 minutes they just slide off.

Ridiculous.
The quality at VBD is appalling at times, some things like the bodysuits I got are superb but other stuff is just dreadful.

Oh and I ordered a bookcase too and that was shocking - the fittings didn't fit in the predrilled holes, they were rattling about and refused to tighten. Such a shame...I have had loads of that MDF printed stuff from them over the years and it was always great. Not any more.

Of course YANBU. I found socks really good for temperature control though, my DS hated being too warm and in winter the shops were boiling when you came in from the cold! So I would take his socks off, and used a laundry bag to keep them together

Get an obliging elderly relative to knit you some!

Some of my favourite outfits are jersey dungarees with feet from Polarn och Pyret. I have found 2 pairs in 3 years, both in the sales.

vertbaudet have a sale on so ive ordered two pairs from there - thanks!

also the idea of wearing a sleepsuit under dungarees is v good as I don't like the idea of him having denim next to his skin.

I used to put my boys in tights under trousers when they were babies, extra layer of warmth and no pulling them off/losing them all the time. smile

I used to put dungarees over the top of a sleepsuit for "smart" wear. Looked good and was more comfy for them.

Jojo Maman Bebe do them.

here and here

eBay could be worth a look too.

Umm...Run of stitches connecting trouser end to sock top? One needle, a piece of thread, 2 minutes. £0 cost. Stick it to the man!

mothercare do trousers with feet up to size 3-6 months. I got loads for DS4 in plain white and dyed them different colours. Mrsmook Next's baby range goes up to 12-18 months. I had the opposite problem with DS3, I wanted clothes in dark colours for my tiny but active baby to cover up stains from crawling in mud and weaning but everything in his size was white or baby blue.

MrsMook Tue 15-Oct-13 09:38:54

Generally I find it really hard finding "baby style" clothes. DS2 is a lot bigger than his brother and at 6m is well into 9-12mths, and out grown a lot of the cute baby ranges. His brother wore the same clothes when he was around 1 so they look too boyish for my pre-sitting baby.

Why do people rush to dress babies like teenagers?

MiaowTheCat Tue 15-Oct-13 08:55:48

Mothercare do (or did last year and I doubt the range has changed that much) both dungarees with feet in, and the trousers with feet attached.

Not very practical if you have long bodied kids or long legged kids though - we used baby socks and sock ons mostly as both my kids are beanpoles. Babygros were crap for us for similar reasons.

I only ever used to buy these as I got so sick of finding tiny socks all over the house. The Jojo ones are great quality and you can often find them on ebay too.

Peppingiro, sainsburys so snow suits with detachable feet that should work for your baby.

I've bought footed leggings from mothercare and sainsburys in the past.

Laquila Tue 15-Oct-13 04:16:49

I bought some from Mothercare two weeks ago instore, and some from M&S online last week (reduced to £5, one pair grey and one with little tigers, unisex). Vertbaudet also has them on sale at the mo.

Love the mother care hooded dungarees linked above!
Thanks!!

peppa I have just bought a snow suit for my dd from Sainsbury 's with detachable foot things and mittens.

Oh please no! The less outfits with feet in the better for me. Both DS 's had huge feet which didn't fit in sleep suits, I had to scour shops for romper suits.

I love baby toes too.

Thanks Lama! It's nice, but a bit pricey...more than I'd pay for a coat for myself!

trilbydoll Mon 14-Oct-13 21:43:38

Babies don't get smelly feet so you only need one pair of socks with some sockons. And they can stay on for nappy changes.

Having said that, we have 4 pairs of trousers with feet from mothercare and i will always pick them over normal trousers!

peppinagiro - Any good? Its very dear though.

Arghhh I'm having the opposite problem. My baby is 95th centile for length and has MASSIVE feet. Have to chop the feet off everything. I stick to tights/socks and leggings day and night now, as finding footless PJs is really tricky. And what I reeeeally need is a footless snowsuit - impossible to find sad

Have you tried Matalan? It's been a while since my youngest was a baby but that's where I got footed trousers for her.
