There’s just something about those tiny toes on baby feet. You want to count them, play “This Little Piggy” and tickle them too. But whether you have a newborn or a toddler, you know that keeping your little one’s feet cozy, comfortable and covered is key.

And when it comes to baby socks, the universal rule of socks applies: they will mysteriously disappear, no matter how many you buy. So our advice? Buy in bulk, so you always have a stash of baby socks handy. Pro tip from moms who’ve been there, done that: buy one color in bulk, that way you never have to worry about mismatched pairs.

What does “in bulk” mean when it comes to baby socks? As a parent to young kids, you’ll be doing multiple loads of laundry a week (trust!), so there’s no reason to go overboard. But you can’t go wrong with a solid dozen pairs—that way you’ll always have a few clean pairs handy even if you fall behind on the wash (it’ll happen!).

Keep in mind, too, that different ages and stages require different kinds of socks.

  • Infants: Soft, cotton and cozy are key, with enough elasticity to keep them in place on tiny baby feet.
  • New walkers: Socks with a bit of grip are probably a good bet to stabilize your adventurous babe, since they’ll be toddling sans shoes a lot.
  • Toddlers and beyond: Their socks will have to actually go into shoes, so consider length, fit and thickness, so the transition to shoes will be a comfortable one.

For Colorful Tootsies

Primary’s basic baby socks are super comfortable, and very practical, sold in three packs in solid colors like bold blue, black and gray. Available in non-skid light knit quarter socks, or in a soft knit rollover cuff style, they’re made of Oeko-Tex certified organic cotton and spandex.

They’re a bit pricier than your average baby socks, but Trumpette’s socks for babies and toddlers are carefully crafted to stay put—and look cute—on little feet. Made of cotton with a good dose of spandex, they are soft and structured, with grippy feet built in. Plus, they have lots of cute styles to choose from, like the adorable Little Adventurer six-pack, featuring black-and-white critters in a unisex style. Or pick up their Perfect Dozen, a pair for every month of baby’s first year—which makes an adorable shower gift too.
