How do you choose the best baby socks? There are so many baby socks on the market and it can be overwhelming, but there are a few things to look for when choosing the absolute best baby socks.
What are the best baby socks?
At Q for Quinn we believe the best baby socks should meet a certain high criteria, especially if you are dealing with skin sensitivities like eczema!
The best baby socks are:
- Soft and breathable
- Free of harsh chemicals and dyes
- Snug fitting to prevent falling off
- Safe and comfortable
Soft and Breathable
Typically best and most breathable socks are cotton, as cotton is a natural fibre. Natural fibres are best for baby socks because they keep feet at the right temperature, not too hot or too cold!
Toxin- Free Socks
Many children's clothing items have been found to contain dangerous BPA, formaldehyde and parabens. These chemicals are known hormone disruptors!
Also some manufactures use dyes that can cause skin irritation. The best baby socks will be free of all toxins and use natural dyes, this will avoid any allergic reactions or rashes such as eczema.
The right fit, not too loose or too tight!
The best baby socks will be fitting just right so they don’t fall off or cut off circulation! Most baby socks have some elastic stretch built in to help them stay on.
Safe and Comfortable
As a new mom, you want your baby to be as safe and comfortable as possible. This means avoiding the dangerous chemicals mentioned above, and making sure the socks are made from a soft natural material.
Should I buy organic cotton socks?
Yes! Organic cotton is the best choice for overall breathability and softness for your baby socks. Organic cotton is free from chemicals such as pesticides and is gentler on our environment when compared to other textile manufacturing.
