As a parent, you want what is best for your child. One way to ensure your child’s happiness and comfort are to keep their hands warm. When temperatures drop, make sure you have a pair of mittens on hand (or two, or three)! Baby mittens not only protect your little one from the cold, but they also prevent your baby from scratching their delicate skin.

There are many types of gloves and mittens on the market for babies and toddlers. So, how do you know which ones are right for your child? And once you find the perfect pair, how do you keep them from getting lost? Let’s explore these questions and more below.

Types of Baby Mittens

There are several types of mittens available for babies and toddlers, including:
Wool mittens: Wool is an excellent insulator and can be used in both cold and wet weather. Wool is also breathable and hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for sensitive skin.

Fleece mittens: Fleece is another material that is good for both cold and wet weather. It is lightweight and dries quickly if it gets wet.

Waterproof mittens: Waterproof mittens are made with a variety of materials, including neoprene and PVC. These mittens are ideal for use in snow or other wet conditions.

Scratch mittens: Scratch mittens have an extra layer of fabric on the palm side to prevent babies from scratching their faces or body. They are typically made from cotton or bamboo and can be used in any type of weather.

Sun protection gloves: These gloves are made from a light material like cotton or polyester and have an SPF rating. They are ideal for use in sunny weather or when playing outside.

Once you have selected the type of glove or mitten you want to buy, there are a few other factors to consider, including size, style, and price. You should also think about whether you want disposable or reusable gloves or mittens.

Size: It is important to choose a glove or mitten that fits snugly but is not too tight. Look for gloves that have an adjustable wrist strap so you can get a snug fit without jeopardizing circulation.

Style: There are many different styles of baby gloves and mittens available, from solid colors to fun patterns. Consider what type of style would suit your child’s personality best.         

Price: Gloves and mittens vary widely in price, from budget-friendly options to designer brands. Reusable gloves tend to be more expensive than disposable options but can be used multiple times, making them more economical in the long run.

Once you have considered all of these factors, you should have no trouble finding the perfect pair of baby mittens! Just make sure to keep an eye on them while they’re wearing them; they have a tendency to fall off (or get pulled off) quite easily!               

How to Keep Track of Baby Mittens:  Mitten clips can be clipped onto the cuff of a jacket or sweater to prevent them from falling off (or getting pulled off). You can also purchase special “mitten stays” that go inside the cuff of the garment to keep the glove or mitten in place. If you cannot find either of these items, simply safety pin the glove or mitten closed. Another option is to sew the glove or mitten shut with a needle and thread; just make sure to remove the stitches when your child outgrows the gloves! When not in use, store gloves and mittens in a safe place where they will not get lost; a coat pocket or special storage container works well for this purpose.                                    

Conclusion: Baby Mittens are important because they protect your baby's delicate skin from the cold weather conditions outside as well as prevent them from scratching themselves. There are many different types of gloves and materials to choose from so make sure you pick what is best suited for your baby specifically.

Lastly, it's very easy for babies to lose their gloves so make sure it's close by using either clips, special "mitten stays", safety pins, or even just sewing it shot! And always store it away properly when not in use! If you would like more information on different types of baby mittens, please tap on the button below.
