Gerber sounds like a very reputable brand for baby products, so we thought we should give it a try. It is definitely soft, but I think for a baby���s sensitive skin, I think the material can be even softer. It's not like we can ask the baby if they think their socks is soft enough, but we can try our best to choose the best we can for them. It is very elastic, it does not gets stretched out, helping it stay on. This package has a wide variety of colors which I love so we can match with all the cute baby clothes. This package comes with 8 different colored socks! To be honest, you lose these tiny things in no time. I think it is super cute to match different color socks together as well. I found another great way to use these beautiful colored socks. If you are into baby diaper cakes, baby shower gifts, or just simply baby gifts, these are great for decorating your gifts. Because of the beautiful color and designs on these socks, you can roll them up and make cute roses out of them. You can use the sock roses to decorate diaper cakes and baby gifts. I've used them to decorate a diaper cake and I received many great compliments on it.
