Being a new mom is an exciting yet scary time in a young woman's life. The assistance of an experienced mom or grandmother is always welcomed. Especially when it comes to things like bathing the baby for the first time. I remember my entire body was shaking the first time I bathed my first born. I thought for sure I was going to get the water too cool or too warm, or worse yet, that I would drop her slipperly little body when taking her in or out of the baby bath, or while turning her over to wash her back side.
Many, if not all, new moms face this fear, but Kim Shulman did something about it. She created the 'No Slip Charlie' gloves that allow you to safely Grip your wet, soapy, slippery baby, yet they still leave your fingers free to thoroughly the clean baby. Kim sent a pair of her No Slip Charlies to Whitney, one of our mommies, to test with her new baby boy. Here is what she thought about the No Slip Charlie Gloves.
Whitney, Mother of two:
I received a Pink pair of “No Slip Charlie” gloves. To be honest, when I first saw these gloves I thought they were a bit silly looking. They are very brightly colored pink striped, fingerless gloves made of a bathing suit-like stretchy material. They also included a terry cloth mitt that attaches to either glove with a small velcro patch on the backside of the glove. The fabric is very smooth so I wondered how it was going to "grip” my son and keep him from being so slippery. Then I remembered back to when I would try to take my wet swimsuit off and it would really stick to my skin. So I thought I'd better give these a shot.
Due to our schedules, I usually take my kids in the shower with me in the morning. So the next morning I put on my “No Slip Charlie” gloves and picked up my infant son and stepped into the shower. I was amazed at the grip I had on him. The material stuck to him and I felt pretty secure holding him, and not at all nervous at about him slipping out of my hands. I put the terrycloth mitt on my fingertips and soaped him up. The mitt made it much easier to get into all those nooks and crannies. I noticed that the terry cloth mitt did tend to creep off my hand when it got really wet but it didn't go far because it stayed attached to the Velcro patch sewn into the back of the glove.
I wish I would have had these gloves when my daughter was a new baby so I would have felt more confident while bathing her. All in all I would definitely recommend the “No Slip Charlie” gloves to any mother who would like a little extra security while bathing her new baby.
One user tip: Due to the grip the material has on your skin, be sure to put the gloves on while they are still dry.
No Slip Charlie Gloves come in two colors: Pink Stripes & Blue Stripes and make a thoughtful gift for any new mother. They are 'Mom Approved' and have have received the 'Seal of Approval from The New Parents Guide', as well as the BloggerMommies -Two Thumbs Up!
