- Fit – The first question when buying baby
clothes is does it fit? Great fit is key. Depending on the manufacturer, new
parents often finding themselves upsizing or downsizing based on the clothing’s
label to find the right fit for their baby. SoftBaby’s romper was a great fit
with no age guessing game. My 8 month old fit the 6-9 romper perfectly. There
was even some room for him to continue to grow.
- Design and Texture – I loved SoftBaby’s design.
The unbleached organic cotton with yellow orange deer prints was adorable. The
romper would be a great baby shower unisex gift to give. Additionally, the
organic cotton was truly as soft as if it was picked directly from the field.
The thickness was a summer cotton and it made me wonder if SoftBaby was
considering having a winter cotton line of clothing as well.
- Function –
Call it the “Great Soft Baby Crawling Suit.” The cotton moved freely with the baby as he speed
crawled around the house. Definitely no creasing, stretching or cotton
stiffness. The down side came when it was time to change Michael’s diaper. The
romper only had front snaps and no diaper snaps. The front snaps were a bit
stiff which made me worry that I may tear the fabric. And with no diaper snaps,
changing Michael required aerobatics on his part and for me to take the romper
almost off of him.
- Overall: I would buy
the romper for myself or as a baby shower gift.
Good thing! Check out Softbaby which sells blankets, bloomers, rompers and bodysuits, starting at $40.
