These wonderful leggins keep baby's legs warm and let you change baby's diapers without having to take pants off and put them back on. So wonderful whether you have a squirmy newborn, or a toddler on the go.
Alas, no sooner had I discovered this conept then I also discovered the expense of babylegs, at an average of $15 a pair! So I went to search on finding some cheaper used ones and came across some adorably cute babylegs another mama had made from tube socks!!! What a fabulous idea!!!
You can find cute socks (tube socks, slipper socks and knee highs all work) for $1-$5 at stores and depending on the sock you cut off an area and hem it up and you have some adorable, and cost effective babylegs! For knee highs cut them off at the heel, for tube and slipper socks just cut straight across the toes area at the very bottom of the sock. Hem the area you cut off and put your new babylegs on your little one so the hemmed area is around their ankle and the stretchy band holds the sock in place above their thigh close to the hip joint.

- I'm a semi crunchy stay at home wife and mama of two boys. Extend Breastfeed, Cloth diaper, Cosleep, Babywear, Homeschool, Homebirth. My sons and I have some serious health concerns (allergies, growth hormone, kidney, lung, spine, etc...). We didn't realize they were genetic (or I had) until after Trace's birth. Tristian had some big medical and possibly/probably autism related delays in early childhood but also taught himself to read at 2yrs and started on math equations at 4yrs. Trace is bit delayed across the board by about 6 months, but as he's 1yr+ behind in height... it's not very noticable ;-) Trace is very musical and hands on. With plenty of common sense, love, good doctors and faith we are doing wonderfully!
This wonderful chapter in my life of discovering the green subculture has (mostly) ended. Living green on a budget has changed from the thrill of discovery to habit. This blog remains in rememberance- with occasionally crossover posting. I hope you join me- the same green mama on a budget, in a new blog celebrating life's daily experiences- LIFE O'KAY http://lifeokay.blogspot.com/ Still lots of crafts & crunchiness- with even more sweet family moments.
