I need some advice regarding suitable clothes for baby once he is trying/learning to walk.
Is it safe to wear coveralls with feet that come with rubber friction pads? Or should I put baby into a footless coverall? When my baby starts doing the walking thing, the weather will still be very cold as I am in Melbourne. So I am concerned about keeping his feet warm and yet make it safe for him to learn to walk.
Here's one with feet : feet.jpg
Here's one without feet : no feet.jpg
Or any other suggestions are welcome!

My DS has just turned 2 and I've managed to find onesies with feet that are large enough for him to wear for bed they have the rubber pads on the bottom and he has no issues walking in them he has worn the same style since he started walking well over a year ago

DS is 20 months and has been wearing socks with the grips on the bottom and I have warm sleepsuits with the feet in that have grips and he is walking around on polished timber floors just fine.

Thank you so much!
I was very confused as a mum told me I should not use the ones with feet as they are slippery. I guess those with friction pads will be okay.
Just one question, are they fine on carpet as well?

Neither. Ds is 15m and wears pants, socks and shoes.
Evening he wears pjs (pants/top) and socks with grip underneath.

They're fine on carpet I use them under his flannelette pjs cause he's a blanket kicker he's currently running around the house in one (we have carpet and tiles) I've never noticed any difference in his ability to walk or run on either

DD is 11 months and I prefer to put her in the feetless suit with socks (and take the socks off for bed). She is abit short for the grippy foot suit so she ends up walking on the knee part and slipping.
