am I being mad to worry that if my 7 month old wears tights, she might get thrush? (obviously in this weather she's just in her nappy anyway)

she has already had it but that may well have been because I had nipple thrush at the time

tights are just such a good solution to the problem of babies pulling their socks off!

Have you seen something called sock-ons? They are great at keeping socks on small babies and so would remove the need for tights. I have no idea about tights and thrush btw.

Is the nappy not closer to her bum than the tights?

I think you're overthinking to be honest.

Baby tights are usually made of cotton though, aren't they? Not nylon, like adult tights.

Id have thought a nappy would be more problematic than tights.

No difference. ..

Nappy and tights
Nappy and leggins
Nappy and joggers

Worse would be leaving her in a dirty nappy longer than was avoidable!

she's worn them already, quite a bit, they don't feel like cotton and she's just been given some new purple ones that are fairly shiny, so not cotton.

omg I've just googled sock ons, I saw them ages ago but forgot about them, I think she was a newborn at the time and therefore not relevant

thanks all
