What's the deal with the mitts?
on January 23, 2014
My daughter is huge for her age (she's 5 months but already outgrew her 6 month clothes at 4 months), so I decided on a 9-month size. The arms and legs are too long, which is fine and expected, but the body/torso part fits just right. Which makes me wonder how this will fit in a month or two. It's easy to get off and on. I definitely prefer the magnet closures over a zipper. I hate how zippers bunch up and tighten the crotch of baby clothes. My main issue is the mitts. Look closely at the image. The mitt part just flops down/off, so there is a huge gap when you actually want to cover your baby's hands. I'm considering sewing part of it together, adding some type of velcro or other closure. The mitts are useless. I would recommend this for moderately chilly weather. I'm using it during a freezing Chicago winter, but mostly to transfer the baby to and from the car. If you're going to be going out and about a lot in freezing temps, definitely find something warmer.
