One of the things I completely forgot about with having a baby is that they’re very slippery when wet in the bath and you need at least three hands to get the job done without flooding your bathroom or getting shampoo in their eyes. So imagine my delight to hear about Flannel Fingers, gloves made out of soft flannel that you can wash your children with whilst they’re in the bath, I was intrigued and couldn’t wait to try them out.
Joey’s Flannel Fingers are award-winning flannel gloves made from the softest, organic cotton blend that you can pop on at bath time, lather up with soap and wash your children with. If you’ve ever tried to wash a wet wriggly baby with the soap, a flannel and hold them above water, you’ll know the struggle is real. You need extra pairs of hands to do it all but Flannel Fingers take some of the juggling out of the equation and actually make bath time easier.
At the moment, we’re still bathing Freddie on his own in a smaller bath tub, he can’t sit up on his own unaided yet so we’re holding him in the bath whilst getting him clean. After several nappy accidents recently, Freddie has become a fan of the bath and has started to splash around, hitting his hands on the water and moving his legs around. It’s like trying to bath an Octopus!
We’ve been using Joey’s Flannel Fingers over the last month and they’ve been brilliant. It’s made the bath time struggle so much easier as wearing the gloves on your hands, you’re eliminating an issue. Your hands turn into the flannel and you can easily wash your baby over whilst you’re holding them. Both my husband and I have been using them on Freddie and found them both to be so convenient. The gloves are a brilliant size, they’re available in sizes S/M and L, we’ve been using a pair of L gloves which fit nicely and don’t feel weird inside (I have a thing about having wet hands in confined spaces!)
I wondered how well they would dry out after use and if you wring them out like you would a flannel after bath time and hang them up to dry (with the handy sewn-in loop) they’ll easily dry out over night ready for use the next day. They wash well too, we’ve popped them through the washing machine and they’ve dried well too!
Joey’s Flannel Fingers are available in both blue and pink and cost just £9.99 a pair which I think is a brilliant price for something you’re going to use frequently, especially in the first twelve months of a baby’s life. Available to buy online via their website or via Amazon.
