Quality control issues - cut off baby's circulation!
on March 3, 2015
I do NOT recommend these. I tried this brand because the Gerber elastic stretches out after a short time and I was frustrated with buying new ones. The elastic on these was much stronger - BUT the quality control cannot be trusted. Some of the mitts had much smaller openings than others. My husband and I didn't realize this. I randomly decided to change her mitts before bed, even though she didn't get them dirty and I wouldn't usually have changed them again at this time, but thank God I did because one of the mitts had cut off circulation to her hand and her wrist was just puffed up like a marshmallow where the blood had been pooling. I can't imagine if she'd have slept all night like that. I am terrified to use any of them now even after throwing that pair away.
I contacted the company for a refund and their returns process is such a hassle; they use a shipper that I don't have access to here, they male you pay for returns etc. All for a few bucks. I feel like they purposely make it difficult so that you don't return the item.
I almost never post reviews, actually this may be my first, but I just wanted to warn other parents. If you do decide go give these a try, please just check your baby's wrists from after a while each time you use a new pair.
