Baby socks that actually stay on your little one’s feet are the holy grail of the parenting world. Let’s face it: Many little socks look adorable, but don’t last long on your child’s tootsies. And there’s nothing more irritating than realizing halfway through a shopping trip that one of your baby’s socks is missing. OK, maybe not getting a full night’s sleep in weeks (months!) is more irritating — but if you can find cute socks for babies that stay on, life with a little one is just the teeniest bit easier. That’s why we looked high and low for the best socks for babies you can shop online. That means our roundup of baby boy socks and baby girl socks not only won’t budge, wiggle, slip or slide off, but your tot will look adorable while wearing ‘em.
Read on to peruse our picks of the best baby socks from the newborn to toddler stage. We share reviews from parents on baby knee high socks, ruffle baby socks and baby socks with grips. Slipper socks, booties and socks that look like shoes for babies also made our list. Even if you’ve tried tons of styles, parents swear these baby socks finally, actually stayed on their child’s feet through aggressive kicking, playing, learning to walk, tantrums, diaper changes, and with or without shoes. But you don’t have to take our word for it alone.
Keep scrolling and see for yourself that yes, baby socks that stay on do exist — and you can shop them from retailers like Walmart and Amazon. You may be only a few clicks away from making your life as a parent to a small child slightly less overwhelming.
