I must admit, the first time I saw my grandson in a pair of rainbow-striped leg warmers, I found myself thinking "What on earth? Isn't he a bit young for a dance class?" It didn't take long, however, for me to understand their amazing utility. You see, winter wear for babies comes one of two ways. Either you have a zillion snaps, up and down each leg, to undo before changing a diaper, or you have none at all, meaning you have to pretty much undress the poor kids completely in order to change them.
So, let's hear it for the unsung hero who first thought of combining a regular 3-snap onesie with pint-sized leg warmers in winter. Brilliant! Ab-so-lute-ly brilliant!
