7 am enfant mittens
Yes, so I 'm having a winter gloves
thing this week. That's what happens when the weather drops to freezing in the Northeast and my kids, who normally hate bundling up, start complaining about cold fingers.
If you've got littler ones, and are tired of lost mitten syndrome--either because they don't stay on well, or because, well, kid lose mittens--7 A.M. Enfant has some wonderful solutions.
Mostly known for their fashionable Arctic weight stroller
bags for babies
, this French company also makes some wonderful
accessories. The classic mittens
an elasticized wrist to keep snow and wind out (and baby hands in), but
what I really love is the clever way the velcro is designed--it cuts a
diagonal swath down over the glove, instead of following the lines of
the wrist. They may be the easiest mittens to get little hands into that
I've seen because you're not wrestling with the elastic.
they come in 10 beautiful waterproof fabrics, or a really great looking two-tone
Another choice is the long cuffed mittens
if your kid's winter jacket already has elasticized sleeves because
they're meant to fit over the sleeve, not under them. Much easier for
on-and-off when you're running in and out of stores. And the best part:
The string that attaches the mittens. You string it through the sleeves
of the coat--voila. No more lost mittens.
Or if you've got
infants and babies, the infant hat
and mitten set
is killing me with cuteness.
The sizes do
seem to run a wee bit big, so while the XL is recommended for 2-4 years,
I'd imagine you might get a year or two more out of them than that. Bring
on the snow. -LizFind weatherproof mittens for babies
