  • Uses For Baby Socks

    Parenthacks posted a suggestion to use baby socks to keep pajama legs in place. It reminded me of my favorite baby sock use: as hand mittens. I found the mittens never stayed in place, so Ellen Steinberg recommended I try “hand socks,” as I now call them. They work like a charm!


    1. I, too, found socks as better mittens than mittens. I didn’t even have to buy mittens first! The best ones were the littlest terry ones… they seem to be all spandex anyway and they grip so well while still being supremly soft.
