I was so hesitant to buy some little mittens for my new little girl just because of the experience I had had with mittens in the past. The mittens I bought for my son when he was born (not Lou Lou brand) would not stay on his hands AT ALL! I heard so many rave about how good LOU LOU's mittens were so I went for it. I am telling you.. they are the softest little things and they will for sure stay on her hands.. the bands are longer and are tighter than the ones I have used before. I can not wait for her to be born in only a few short days just to put these little mittens on her.. oh and the Arden swaddle that I am DYING over! Love love love them!
