We have cream tights from adams. Has the 2 seams up the back. THe only problem I have is that adams stockings are a little smaller than what you would get in Tesco's or wherever. Kayleigh is nicely fitting into Adams 12-18 months, but I'd only give them another 3 months or so before they will be too small. We occasionally get wicking between the legs if we don't have a good fit wrap over our nappy.

And babylegs - I saw that they are meant to fit till the child is around 10, so what is the youngest age you can put them on (as there is a lot of growing from say 1 to 10).

I got our first Babylegs for Charlotte when she was about 4 months old and they fit fine - just a bit wrinkly iyswim. She still wears them now. Always been a bit dubious about the claim that they will fit to 10 years old but I can see them lasting us another winter.

Even hugalugs only say until age six and they're roomier!

Perhaps at age ten they're arm warmers not leg warmers?

I hate tights with a passion. For me or Kiara. So I make the most of the current fashion and I/she wear(s) dresses over trousers or leggings.
:P

I have to say I was never a fan of tights. Although in winter lily does usually wear them on sundays for church but not any other time. tbh I haven't had any problems with wicking so couldn't help there. I like the leggings idea I think they look cute with skirts and also the long kinda tunic tops that are in fashion at the moment. But then we also like huggalugs but I bet our winter isn't half as cold as yours :D

Hi Hannah, any chance that Erin needs to go up a wrap size? I find we get wicking problems when this is the issue. Tights not usually a problem. Personally I like funky tights! But Mothercare often have plain ones.
