Now that the weather is colder, Frances can no longer go around barefooted all the time. I have a hate-hate relationship with baby socks, which either fall off or are too tight, so I’ve been on a quest to find footed pants for Frances. I mean, sometimes it’s just time to get out of pajamas and put on some real clothes.
After finding a pair at Goodwill, on my first try, I thought they’d be a lot easier to come by. As long as your baby isn’t too tall, what’s not to like? Well, it turns out they are not as prolific as I would have imagined. I haven’t been able to find footed pants anywhere locally. The thing about buying footed pants online is that they are expensive. I finally broke down and bought a set of fleece pants with a sweatshirt, but that was a month ago. Now the same set sells for 40% more!
The other thing about footed pants is that they don’t come in larger sizes. 0-3 months, sure, but good luck finding any for over 12 months! I understand that they might be slippery for young walkers, but why not make the feet a little grippy?
So if you come across a cheap pair of footed pants, buy it up while you have the chance! And then mail them to me.
