When it's cold outside, it's really important that babies are wrapped up warm.
If you're feeling cold, they definitely are! Babies can't cope with the chill as much as we can, so time outside should be limited, and a good rule of thumb is that babies need one more layer of clothing than adults.
Baby tights are the perfect way to keep them warm in the winter months and they look super cute, too. Just make sure you follow the washing instructions and store them neatly to avoid laddering.
Kidadl's Top Pick
We think all our baby tights are amazing, but if you're in a hurry and just want the best there is, then you don't need to look any further than these from JoJo Maman Bébé.
1. JoJo Maman Bébé Girls' Plain Cotton Rich Tights
JoJo Maman Bébé tights are hugely popular (spoiler alert: this isn't the only time they feature in this blog) and that's because they're not only lovely to look at but also very high quality. The material is lovely and thick for the winter months but also super soft, so your baby should enjoy wearing them. Parents also love the anti-slip sole for those first few steps, encouraging babies to keep at it! There are an amazing 20 colours to choose from, so whether you're looking for red baby tights, navy baby tights or white baby tights you're sorted.
- Price: £7.50
- Available in 20 colours
- Super soft cotton
- Anti-slip sole
Best For Families On A Budget
2. Matalan Girls' 2 Pack Heart Tights
Buying baby clothes can get expensive, so if you don't want to break the bank and buy some good quality baby girl tights then these from Matalan may fit the bill. We love the knitted heart pattern, and babies will love the fit as they don't tend to go baggy as some tights do. They wash well too, so these are some great tights to keep hold of.
- Price: £4.50 (pack of two)
- Knitted heart pattern
- Available in sizes up to four years
Best Ribbed Tights
3. Boden Ribbed Tights
Boden tights are a little on the pricey side, but they are of good quality. Parents love the soft cotton, and the two-tone design on the feet so they're not completely plain. These tights also stay up well without having a small waistband, so babies stay comfortable.
- Price: £11
- Available in sizes up to four years
- Four different colours to choose from
Best Cable Knit Tights
4. JoJo Maman Bébé Girls' Cotton Rich Cable Tights
If you're after new tights in a cable knit design, then again we'd look no further than JoJo. The non-slip soles, soft cotton and fitted gusset make these tights a winner and they keep very well after washing. These tights are available in five colours so you should be able to match them to outfits easily.
- Price: £8
- Anti-slip sole
- Gusset fits well over nappies
Best Frilly Tights
5. Marks & Spencer Frilly Bum Baby Tights
If you want something super cute without being too bright, then frilly bum tights may be a good option, and these ones from Marks & Spencer are perfect. Available in baby pink and white, they are adorable and look like new after every wash. Note that the first size is 0 to 6 months, so they're probably not ideal as newborn tights.
- Price: £8 (pack of two)
- Available in sizes up to 24 months
- Soft cotton
Best Animal Tights
6. JoJo Maman Bébé Girls' Fox Cotton Rich Tights
We love the fox design on these tights. Bright without being garish, they look super cute and will go with many baby outfits. The material is lovely and thick for the winter months but also very soft, and the anti-slip soles will be handy if they're trying out walking on any floors. Parents have found the size a little on the large size, so unless your baby is on the bigger size for their age it may be worth buying a smaller size.
- Price: £9
- Available in sizes up to six years
- Anti-slip sole
Best Baby Tights For A Gift
7. Snowflakes And Sunflowers Bright Floral And Owl Children's Tights
Tights make a lovely gift and we think these are a great choice. Available in several bright designs, these tights will look gorgeous on little legs. They come in a lovely little drawstring bag, making them a great christening or new baby present.
- Price: £10
- Come in delicate drawstring bag
- Bright design
Best Sparkly Tights
8. Monsoon Baby Super Sparkle Tights
Monsoon do some lovely baby items for special occasions, and these tights will look gorgeous for a party or christening. The sparkles aren't too 'in-your-face' but add a touch of glitter to many girls' outfits. If you're looking for a special outfit, we think it's worth looking at Monsoon's other baby tights as well.
- Price: £7
- Available in sizes up to three years
- Subtle sparkles woven into cotton
Best Tights For Crawling
9. GoBabyGo Crawling Tights
If there's one down side to babies wearing tights, it's when they start getting mobile and you have floors. Babies will lose their balance at the best of times when starting to walk, so getting tights with foot grips is a good investment. And with these tights from GoBabyGo, you don't have to worry about their knees slipping when they're crawling around. If you've got a baby determined to go places, then we think these are definitely worth a try.
- Price: £15
- Non-slip rubber on feet and knees
- Suitable from six months
Best Baby Tights For Boys
10. Falke Crawler Boy Baby Tights
Of course any baby can wear any of the tights on this list, boy or girl, but most tights do come in a traditional girls style. So, if you're looking for baby boy tights that go with particularly boyish outfits then we love these ones from Falke. We love the support on the knees to help little crawlers and the foot grips to help with those first steps. These boys' tights are lovely and thick for colder days and the material is very soft for comfort.
- Price: £16
- Available in sizes from one to 18 months
- Appliquéd ovals give a little extra knee support
