Baby Booties That Stay On!!
on March 31, 2014
Babies have been around a long time, and so have babies booties. Why in the world someone didn't make booties that stay on babies before now, I don't know. Finally, Zutano has accomplished the apparently impossible. I first noticed these booties when a child in my care wore them to my house. Typically, the booties go on the table after the first release in the morning to await the return of parents as otherwise, I end up spending the entire day replacing them. These booties never had the chance to be put on the table because they never fell off. There must be something magical about the shape and the snap arrangement that keeps them on.
The babies who wore these the best were between about 5 months and 10 months old. They also generally wore socks under the booties. To be honest, one might sometimes come off on an older baby who is crawling around and intentionally pulling on his/her socks, but otherwise, they stay really well. I have used both the fleece versions and the cotton versions. They hold up well and are worth the money. In fact, you might even save money by buying just one pair of these and using them every day instead of buying a few bad pairs to rotate. You won't like any other brands any more anyway. I love knowing the babies' feet are toasty warm all winter long.
Generally, the babies seem to wear a 6 month size at maybe about 4 months of age, but they seem to span several months in that one size because of the shape and the two snap positions. These booties would make a great baby shower gift, but you would want to point out that this particular pair should not get thrown in a drawer with all the other booties that don't stay on.
