Are the socks tight?
Based on the feedback we've received, some parents have found that the classic model of socks may have a snug fit on babies and children with fuller ankles or legs. In these situations, some customers have chosen a larger size as an alternative, as we do not currently offer a wider model.
Will my child be annoyed by the silicone dots?
Over the past few years, we've sold a significant number of socks, and we've only encountered a few parents who have mentioned that their child is annoyed by the dots on the inside. Some parents have resolved this by having their child wear the socks over their pants instead. For other types of irritation, please refer to the question about "how does the skin react to the silicone."
How does the skin react to the silicone dots?
Ensure that the feet do not get too warm because the skin does not breathe well under the silicone dots, which can lead to heat blisters. Avoid having the baby sleep with the socks, wearing warm pants over them, covering with blankets, or similar situations. Sometimes, even on a regular day, if the child gets too warm, it can lead to heat blisters. Particularly when the child is under 1 year old, their skin is extra sensitive, which can cause irritation. However, it's important to note that the silicone we use is 100% medical-grade silicone. We have conducted tests on the silicone to confirm its medical classification, meaning it's intended for medical purposes. It's biocompatible, which means it's safe for skin contact, allergen-friendly, and free from harmful substances. Silicone is commonly used in various medical applications, such as promoting scar healing.
We recommend wearing the socks over the child's pants or folding down the sock's shaft if you notice any irritation.
Is it the anti-slip feature that makes the socks unique?
No, the anti-slip feature is quite common, so that is not what makes them unique. What sets them apart is the technology that ensures they stay on, including silicone dots on the inside of the shaft and two elastic bands in the middle of the shaft, as well as around the center of the foot. The anti-slip feature is more of a bonus.
Do the feet get cold due to the anti-slip on the sole?
We've heard people claim it, but we've also read that some consider it a myth. We haven't found any research that demonstrates that anti-slip causes coldness. Therefore, we leave the question unanswered.
If you have concerns about ensuring warmth for your children's feet, we recommend considering our wool socks, which contain an impressively high 80% wool content. These socks are specifically designed to regulate body temperature, effectively warming your child when it's cold and vice versa.
Should my child wear sunscreen if he/she is already wearing UV-protective clothing?
Yes, wearing sunscreen under UV-protective clothing is still recommended. While these clothes provide excellent protection, sunscreen adds an extra layer of defense, especially in areas not fully covered by the clothing or where fabric might stretch or move, potentially exposing the skin to UV rays. It's a great double protection strategy for your child’s skin.
Is the swimwear fabric sensitive?
Yes, the polyester birdseye mesh is delicate and can get snagged if it catches on something. The fabric may stretch if the clothing is too tight.
How absorbent are the bibs?
Based on customer reviews, our bibs keep the child dry for longer than any other bibs on the market. If the bib isn't snug around the neck, there's room for the drool to leak over the edge, seeping down the back of the bib and potentially making the child wet. Therefore, it's crucial to ensure a good fit for the bib to function properly.
Do the sunnies have any UV protection?
Our sunnies do not provide UV protection. While they offer style and eye coverage, they do not shield against harmful ultraviolet rays.
