We’ve reviewed other organic baby leg warmers before on Eco Child’s Play, and I really do love the concept. I especially like how easy baby leg warmers make diaper changes during the cold winter months without fully undressing a child. Recently, I have discovered another baby leg warmer company with a great mom solution behind its inception: BabyLegs.
How BabyLegs got its first legs?
Once extreme snowboarder Nicole Donnelly decided to come down from the mountain she chose Seattle, Washington for her next adventure. She settled in the lush campgrounds of Saratoga Passage and soon began her family. Sara, a delightful sparkplug of a child with her mom’s penchant for exploring the world, was dealing with a diaper rash that would not quit. Nicole applied her baby-brains and came up with an ingenious invention.
She cut off the feet to a pair of snowboarding socks and fitted Sara, from hip to ankle, with the coolest set of legwarmers. Now she could be diaper-free, rash-less, crawl safely on her knees and parade around in what was to become the latest in fashion accessories.
I love it! Cutoff snowboard socks allowed Sara to be diaper-free to heal that rash but still remain warm and protected while crawling.
BabyLegs comes in over 100 original designs in Original, SuperSoft, Wool, and certified Organic cotton and wool. One special design is Pink Ribbon, featuring breast cancer awareness ribbons. These BabyLegs were created to support finding a cure for breast cancer by donating ten percent of proceeds to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
BabyLegs aren’t just for babies either! Parents can wear them on their arms, as can older children up to ten-years-old wear them on their calves. Even celebrity babies are getting in on the act! Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, and Angela Basset are just a few names of mothers who are adorning their children in BabyLegs. I wonder if Jennifer Beals is a mother; her baby would certainly wear BabyLegs. From extreme snowboarders to Hollywood actors, BabyLegs are practical and hip!
