Baby Gloves and Mittens Buying Guide

Gloves and mittens for babies are used for their functionality and they protect the tiny hands of your baby.  Gloves have separate pocket for each finger and get easily fitted around, thus keeping the tiny fingers of the babies, warm and protect them from harsh, cold winter breeze.Mittens do not have a separate pocket for each finger; instead there is one opening for the thumb while all the other fingers get enclosed in a single big pocket. So mittens restrict the movement of fingers when compared to gloves.

Fabric and Style of Gloves

Gloves are available in a diverse range of styles and fabric. You can go for gloves made from wool, cotton, fleece or nylon for your baby. A stretchable glove, which can fit your baby’s palms now and when your baby grows up as well, is a nice pick. You can also go for the old-fashioned big sized ones which ensure warmth and protection. Gloves are available in a wide variety of colours and you can pick the appropriate one to go with your baby’s dress.  

Fabric and Style of Mittens

The mittens are great for rough use. Most woollen and spun made mittens come in one-size fits-all increment for babies.  You can also buy cute themed bear-paw-shaped mittens for your baby. They have drawstrings at the wrists, grip pads on the paws and flaps to free the little hands without taking it off. 

Water proof gloves and mittens come in handy during rainy weather. It is always wise to go for the machine washable ones.  

Mittens find specialised uses too. Your baby’s fingernails grow very fast and they are very sharp. It is difficult to cut them too, especially for newborns.  The no-scratch mittens prevent nail scratches in babies.
