Initial thoughts: When I received this for review we were in the middle of summer and at the time Kate wasn’t wearing much more than a nappy to sleep in at night so it was popped into the back of the cupboard. I have been using it since the end of the summer and it has now been worn a number of times.
I liked: It is obviously a well made, quality item that washes well. As with most organic cotton it shouldn’t go in the tumble dryer which is a bit inconvenient but it feels very nice and soft anyway. At £11.95 I think this is a great value price for an organic item. They also do a 2 pack and it comes in either eco-natural or white.
I didn’t like: The sleeves are very long. They have ends that you turn over to stop the baby scratching their face which is useful but I would have felt it was too long on a small baby for quite a long time which would have stopped me using it. Now the sleeves are still long but Kate’s feet are poking out of the bottom, and she is only 7 months, it does say that this is sized up to 9 months.
Overall: You can’t beat these nightgowns for night time nappy changes, no poppers to fumble with when you are sleepy. This nightgown has a cloth tie at the bottom, others that I have used had elastic which I find better but it didn’t cause any issues. Kate seemed really happy and snug in this nightgown and loved that she could get to her feet! This would make a nice gift for a new baby too.
Further information: Baby nightgowns can be purchased from The Little Green Sheep website.
They say: This luxurious baby nightgown is a newborn baby must-have, and makes for a comforting and snug night’s sleep. Made from the finest soft organic jersey cotton, each nightgown is free from any chemicals and is unisex, suitable for either a baby boy or baby girl. Includes integrated scratch mitts.
Disclosure: We were sent a baby nightgown free of charge for the purpose of this review.
