  • I found these mittens to be useless. While baby is newborn I rather flip out the hand covers on onesies/sleepers. We found it impossible to keep the kittens on. Feb 28, 2021

  • Fold over cuffs are WAAAYY easier and more efficient. Feb 26, 2021

  • I received these care of Stellar Product Panel. They worked until she started sucking on her fingers. Seemed to be helpful until the 3 month mark. The prints are very cute tho. Feb 09, 2021

  • Way to big for newborns. They fall of constantly. I do not recommend these. Aug 10, 2020

  • These are very soft and comfortable but they do not stay on little hands very well at all. I stopped using these and purchased a different type of mitten instead. Jul 27, 2020

  • I don't recommend mittens of any kind. Do yourself a favor and just get the onsies with fold over sleeves that can morph into a mitt that way they stay on and less to wash. Jun 19, 2020

  • They were fine, but they often fell off. I spent most of my time just putting them back on my son's hands and would eventually give up. It was nice when they kept my son from scratching himself though Mar 06, 2020

  • Soft, cute mittens. Keep our LO from scratching herself. They aren't too tight but stay on well. Jan 27, 2020

  • A little too large for a newborn and still lose at 1 month (10 lbs). However, mittens help prevent scratches on the face since it’s really difficult to trim a newborn’s nails. Nov 08, 2019

    Cute styles and help prevent sharp finger nail scratches but the elastic wears out quick and doesn’t seem to stay on very well. Oct 20, 2019

  • Great for keeping newborn's hands warm and prevent them from scratching their face which is very common for newborns. Sep 01, 2019

  • I loved these mittens . My daughter was horrible about scratching her face till we got these . They're a life saver . Jul 24, 2019

  • This are a must! Baby is constantly trying to scratch his face so this is a lifesaver. Jul 11, 2019

  • These do not stay on well at all. If your baby is a scratcher, tube socks on the hands stay on better or get onesies with the hand fold overs. Jun 11, 2019

  • We get so little use out of these that it wasn't worth the purchase but it was nice to have in the dead of winter for cold fingers. Apr 12, 2019

  • So pointless. They don't stay on. Just use shirts or sleep n plays with the fold over sleeves. Feb 26, 2019

  • Hard to keep them on. Feb 22, 2019

  • Would not stay on my baby. Stretched out way too easily. Dec 09, 2018

  • I had gotten these hopping to use them for the first couple weeks. However I quickly realized that my baby could easily take them off and scratch her face. Aug 02, 2018

    Like the. Does the job. Good price Jul 18, 2018

  • Had these in blue white and gray. Seemed useful at first but in retrospect I wish I’d have gotten a baby nail file instead. Useful at hospital during night. Not worth the money for the use we got Jun 28, 2018

  • These things are useless, they constantly fall off. We ended up using socks instead May 26, 2018

  • Would not fit or stay fit May 18, 2018

  • These mittens are a must with a newborn! They are light weight and fit perfectly over your babies hands to prevent them from scratching their face. Feb 06, 2018

  • Works great to keep baby from scratching her face. Oct 22, 2017

  • Sized right for my 7#5oz newborn! Worked great to prevent scratches to baby and Mom! Sep 16, 2017

  • Come off easily. Luckily daughter didn't need. May 26, 2017

  • I have a ton of these, but never used them on my baby. He could get them off easily. Next time around I'll get more PJs with the mittens that are part of the sleeves that's pull over their hands. Apr 10, 2017

  • Love them when they are made correctly. Some came too tight or too loose. Feb 18, 2017

    I still buy these, and now for our third. They're super cute and they keep baby's hands warm and nails out of her face Jan 07, 2017

    My son hated the mittens and at a week old was able to pull them off somehow. Jan 03, 2017

  • Instead of elastic a nice alternative would be Velcro for smaller babies Dec 29, 2016
