It is a little known fact that finding tights for babies is like hunting for the last Tickle Me Elmo at Christmastime circa 1996 (or whatever practically impossible scenario you can come up with to insert here). I had no idea that baby tights were such a small market, especially for tiny babies, but I quickly learned this while trying to dress my eight pound winter baby in tights and dresses. I searched high and low and was only able to round up a single pair of black knit tights (*Note: I bought them out of every black pair, since there were only three) and Fern lived in them for the first few months of her life as they fit her skinny baby legs far better than pants.
Since then I’ve managed to find a few other cute pairs, but luckily what brick-and-mortar stores lack in the baby tights department, online stores more than make up for.
Here is a round up of some of my favorite little baby tights – hopefully this list will save you the frustration of being tights-less when the colder weather arrives!
