Sensitive kid can't stand seams in socks
Our daughter (3.5 years old) is extremely sensitive to clothing against
her skin. Up until about two months ago she refused to wear underwear
because the seams bothered her. She mostly wears sandals and REFUSES to wear socks.
Does anybody know of "seamless" socks?
Socks for sensitive kids? Retailers with a sensitive child expertise?
Any other advise?
While I can't tell you where to buy seamless socks I can give you
my two cents based on my own kids. My six year old son "hates" the
way the seams feel so on the recommendation of his little friend he
wears them inside out. His feet feel great now. My 4 1/2 daughter
absolutely refuses to wear them period because they just feel yucky
against her skin so we don't push.Whether she's wearing shoes or
sandals its sockless for her. The only thing I do a lot of is wash
her feet and lather her legs with lotion.
My daughter objects to any underwear except Hanna Andersens. Land's
End socks are ok at times.
