Baby leg warmers? Who would think that such a simple, obvious idea would be such a godsend? Nicole Donnelly, apparently. Not only did she come up with the idea to keep her daughters' legs warm during "nakedy time," she has built a hugely successful company called BabyLegs out of her simple invention.
I first came across BabyLegs at Baby Loves Disco, at which guests got to take home a free pair. No one could resist the table covered with tiny leg warmers in every conceivable color and pattern. I snagged a rainbow pair for my daughter, and she has been wearing them ever since (and she's 4 years old — a petite 4, but still).
The real utility comes if your kid is still in diapers — think "crotchless leggings." Diaper changes are a breeze, and early potty-trainers will find it easier to pull down their pants wearing these underneath as a layer rather than long underwear or tights. There must be fifty other uses for these wonderful, versatile little cuties, and not just for babies, either. Ergo, the question for today's giveaway:
What's your BabyLegs hack?
Mine is to use them as minimal PJs for my daughter who prefers to sleep in the buff, even on frigid nights. All other ideas welcome, including hacks for older kids and adults. Answer in the comments to enter to win one of eight pairs of lovely BabyLegs from the new Organic line. Be sure to let me know your kid's gender — I've got at least four gender-neutral patterns here. So cute. I'll announce the winners tomorrow evening! Good luck!
[Update 12/7/07, 5:10pm PST: I've closed comments as of now, but have to head out for a family occasion so can't do my random drawing till later this evening. Sorry to keep you waiting! I'll post the winners at the latest tomorrow morning. Thank you to all who entered! — Asha]
