Here’s another great mother invention: Babylegs which are legwarmers for your baby or toddler.

They’ve been around for a couple of years now, but if you haven’t heard of them, pay attention! These are one of the greatest things since sliced bread. Really. We kid you not.

Babylegs are fantastic for cold weather, to fill the gap between your child’s pant legs and socks. They’re fantastic for cool or warm weather, when you child can be like my son and wear his or her babylegs with shorts. He totally digs the funky look. His favorites are the rainbow ones, with the cow ones and flames tied for second place.

Try some out and see what creative uses you (or your child) can come up with for them! We’re loving the new organic ones, especially the “earth” prints.

They come in every possible color combination and are definitely as much for boys as they are for girls. My son rocks his Babylegs with regularity, so if you have boys, don’t shy away from ordering some. Let your son in on the choosing, and see what fun he has with them.

And if you have girls, well, take one look at the combos and colors and just try to choose one pair. I dare you.

Attached to Baby is running a Babylegs special right now: any order over $50 will include free shipping as well as a free pair of holiday Babylegs! Looking for something to buy from them? How about a Sakura Bloom baby sling?

Other online Sakura Bloom retailers selling Babylegs are Big Mama Slings, Lotus Barn, Nurture Center, Sling Jax, and Tender Cargo.

So, whether you’re a new parent or just new to Babylegs, either way you can’t go wrong. They’re practical, they’re fun, and at $12-15 per pair, they just plain make sense!
