Love one piece sleep and plays but not this set
on December 11, 2013
For the first 6 months, I use sleep and plays as as often as possible. They are usually soft, light weight (so you can later if needed), and super easy. Two problems with these:
1. Packaging: this brand uses double sided tape on the outfit to keep it in place during packaging. On another pattern by this brand we missed some of the tape accidentally before it got washed. To this day we still have a sticky mess on the front of the outfit. Once it went through the washer/dryer it was hopeless.
2. The navy outfit uses some sort of iron on appliqué for the sports design - it is cheep, peels easily, and looks like I did it myself at home without much skill. I always wash it on low I side out and still have issues.
I like other patterns by Gerber, but am disappointed with this navy one.
Note: these are very thin. Good for summer and warm days but during colder weather we put socks on underneath plus a onesie and use blankets. If baby were outside in a baby carrier with legs/arms only covered by this, baby would be way too cold.
