    Default Keeping baby's feet warm once learning to stand in the winter

    How do you keep your baby's feet warm in the winter once they can pull up to standing?

    We have tiled floors throughout our living area so he cant wear onesies with feet, or socks, because he slips. Even the onesies/socks with grip on the bottom dont really seem to work. We have rugs & mats down, but he slips on the mats as well & we can never cover every single inch of tile with rugs.

    He is too young to wear shoes all the time.

    Mine wore onesies even on tiles. They rarely slipped after the initial few days.

    He should get used to it and adapt 😊

    Ok ill keep trying. His feet keep slipping out from underneath him so i have to hover over him constantly to catch him before he faceplants on the tiles. I dont want that, i want him to be able to explore by himself without me hovering. Hopefully he'll get used to it soon

    How will he learn to stop his feet sliding backwards out from underneath him? Is it something he can actually prevent?

    You can get onesies with grip on the soles of the feet from Big W. DD is pulling herself up to stand and does fine on the tiles and floorboards.

    Oh no. The only other thing I can think of is slippers. Hopefully you can find something suitable.
