Make Sure Your Baby's Hands are Warm and Protected!

Why and when do babies need to wear baby gloves and mittens?

One of the first things you'll notice about your baby is how delicate their skin is. That's why it's important to keep their hands protected from the cold weather, sun, and other irritants. Babies can lose a lot of heat through their heads, hands and feet, which is why it's important to keep them warm. Having some baby gloves and mittens with your other baby clothes can help provide a layer of protection for your little one's hands.

Most babies can start wearing gloves or mittens when they're around 3 to 6 months old. However, some babies may need them sooner if they have eczema or other skin conditions. If you're not sure whether your baby needs gloves or mittens, talk to their doctor. They can help you figure out the best way to protect your baby's delicate skin.

What's the difference between mittens and gloves?

  • Mittens are typically warmer than gloves because they cover more of the hand. They're also easier to put on and take off than gloves. However, mittens can make it more difficult for your baby to grip objects.
  • Gloves offer more dexterity than mittens, so they may be a better choice if your baby is starting to grab toys or other objects. However, they may not provide as much warmth as mittens.

What are the best gloves and mittens for babies?

There's nothing cuter than a baby in mittens or gloves! Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for baby mittens and gloves:

  • Make sure the fit is snug. Mittens and gloves that are too big can fall off easily, leaving your little one vulnerable to the cold.
  • Look for mittens and gloves that are lined with a soft breathable material, like cotton or fleece. This will help keep your baby's hands warm and comfortable.
  • Avoid mittens and gloves with strings or other dangling objects. These can be a choking hazard for young babies.

What can you put on a baby's feet?

Babies also need to keep their feet warm and protected. While baby socks are the most common choice, there are also some cute booties and slippers available for infants and toddlers. Like mittens and gloves, baby socks and footwear should be snug-fitting to prevent them from slipping off, and avoid strings and dangly objects.

Are there matching sets in baby clothes available?

Absolutely! You can find gloves and mittens that match other baby clothing, like hats, jackets and baby outerwear, and even shoes. If you're looking for a complete head-to-toe look, you can find sets that include everything from socks to hats to jackets. Bundling up your baby in a hat, mittens, and socks can help them stay warm and comfortable all winter long!

Are gloves and mittens safe for babies?

Yes, gloves and mittens are safe for babies as long as they're used properly. Make sure the fit is snug to prevent them from slipping off, and avoid any gloves or mittens with strings or other dangling objects. Also, be sure to take them off when your baby is sleeping to prevent them from getting too hot.
