Put socks over baby's pajama feet to keep them in place

Jackie's hack keeps her baby's feet inside the pajama footies.

My second child, while weighing a perfectly acceptable 7 lbs 12 oz, is a dainty little thing and her feet were getting lost in the legs of her one-piece sleepers. I discovered if you put socks on over the feet of the sleepers it keeps them in place. No irritated baby because she's got both feet in one leg of her pajamas!  Plus it keeps her feet warm.

What a great suggestion. I can't wait to give this a try. At three weeks, my little guy had wiggled all the way out of his pants the other morning, and we often find him with both legs in one leg of his pants.

This trick worked for both my sons really well. Keep an eye on your baby's feet, though. My daughter's feet sweat a lot when she wore socks at night, which caused her sensitive skin to break down (much like skin under a bandage that has been on too long). We have to keep her feet bare while she sleeps.

Great tip! We had this problem too, but I discovered if I put hair scrunchies around my sons ankles, it keeps the pajamas in place as well. They're soft so they don't cut off the circulation.

I used both the sock and hair scrunchie methods when my daughter was that age. My mom used to so make fun of me. Thank you for validating this as a worthy hack. :)

Tried this last night, worked great. Thanks!

What a good idea ......well it already worked so it's better to follow thank you Asha for sharing...

WOW! This is a great hack. My daughter is in between sizes now and her little feet are always getting lost in her jammies. THANKS!

For little feet that get too sweaty, try cutting the bottoms off the socks, and just use the tops--my toddlers ankles are too thick for the scrunchies anymore, I needed something soft to hold the feet in place without cooking her feet.
