Baby’s Winter Clothing – Mittens
Keeping a baby’s hands warm while out and about is essential. Mittens are the easiest option for young children as it can be a wrestling match trying to get a pair of gloves on to them. Mittens are available in various styles, from the cotton scratch mittens that are perfect for wearing indoors to the warmer wool versions for wearing while out on colder days.
The wool mittens are actually a blend of acrylic and spandex, which gives them a stretchiness that is necessary for young children. These are one size, so the stretchiness ensures that they will last while the child is growing. This elasticity affords the wearer a good fit and means that they are easily cared for as they are machine washable. As these mittens have a good grip on the wrist, it means that they are less likely to be lost. Many current styles do not come with string, but these are still available. The string is threaded through the sleeves of the coat so even if the mitten comes off the hand, it will not be lost. Styles that do not have a string can have this added on easily.
The babies’ winter mittens are also very affordable, so adding a few pairs to the wardrobe as replacement mittens in case of loss will not break the bank. They come in pastel shades, darker colours such as navy blue, and brighter colours such red and purple.
