Do you have a Primark ???? Pack of 3 pairs with non slip things on the bottom 1.89, and they are brilliant, stay on and wash well, don't shrink.

My son Jack has always worn the socks with the little foam shapes on the bottom but he still pulls them off at every opportunity. I still buy socks from PriMark and Baby Gap but have bought slippers from John Lewis that are leather but have elasticated bands round the ankles so they can't walk out of them. They are excellent and Jack can't get them off! I think they cost about £12 but are so worth it!

Tescos are very similar to gap ones but half the price.

The market is the best place for socks. Everything falls off her feet except for the cheapy ones off the market. You can get them in small baby shops as well (the cheap ones, not the expensive boutiques).

Hey Jenn I've never seen a shop for small babies - can I sell one to tehm?

Grommit Sun 04-Apr-04 18:10:21

MOthercare have some which actually seem to stay on - a bit like Gap with white pattern on sole

I too am a committed Gap sock purchaser but I have also found that H&M do some virtually identical to Gap that stay on as well. And cheaper of course.

Another vote for Gap!

kiwisbird Sun 04-Apr-04 20:46:40

Pumpkin patch have some that are good but some that are crap too
I can post you a pair she has outgrown if you like!

Spod Sun 04-Apr-04 22:30:24

kiwisbird, thanks for the offer, but dont worry, i'll be off to the shops 2morrow to buy an assortment... i shall try them out in the shop... walk round for a bit and see if she manages to kick them off!
