Having a baby third time around after having a gap of 5 years has meant that I’ve done away with certain baby products, and embraced new ones that I wish were around when I had Freddie and Sasha.
One of these fab new finds has come from a wonderful mum at my children’s school, Emily, who is the brains behind the award-winning ‘Joey’s Flannel Fingers’. Quite simply, Flannel Fingers are flannel gloves (made of the softest, organic cotton blend) that help stop your tiny newborn, or slippery older baby or toddler, becoming a cropper in the bath. You can lather them up and use them for actually washing your baby, meaning there’s no more nail-biting juggling of baby soap and shampoo.
Having tried and tested them for a while now, they make the whole bathing process much safer and therefore stress-free.
I could SO have done with these when Freddie was a new baby- I remember feeling nervous bathing him as he seemed so small and fragile, and I was terrified of dropping him in the bath.
Fast forward 7 years, and my Flannel Fingers are now perfect for keeping hold of a wriggly Arlo. He absolutely loves his bath, and is in that tricky in between stage where he’s now too big for his bath seat (we had a near-miss escapee incident only last week!), but not yet steady enough in the water to keep himself upright for long. Using the gloves has meant I can keep a firm-yet-gentle grip on our lively little guy, which has surprised me as I wasn’t sure if they would be useful past the small baby stage, but I was wrong!
I might know Emily, but I never champion products on here that I don’t believe in, and I can happily state that Flannel Fingers would now be on my ‘things you need for a newborn list’- DEFINITELY a great ‘extra’ gift for your friend who is expecting a new arrival.
Thanks to Emily and Flannel Fingers for introducing me to a baby bathtime staple!
