Do you like dressing your baby up in fashionable clothes that are also functional?
If you want the fashion and function combo, I’ve found the ideal line of clothing for babes – mbaby™ by Munchkin.
The mbaby™ apparel collection was just introduced to the market at the end of January 2014 and consists of Onester™, Sleepster™ and playwear.
One of the unique features in this collection is the patent-pending double-layer front that keeps your baby’s tummy warm while leaving the backside single-layered and more breathable. Perfect because our babes spend a majority of their time on the backs while in the stroller, high-chairs, sleeping, etc.
I have had the opportunity to dress my little one in three of the pieces and I must say, they are fabulous!
My daughter first tried out the Onester™ Short Sleeve Lemon Cake onesie. Not only did I love the refreshing color, but the double-layer inside pattern was a beautiful confetti-like design giving the onesie a little more flare. The material on the Onester™ is 100% cotton knit and feels remarkably soft. Even after washing, it comes out feeling the same as when it was new.
My 3-month old also wore the Onester™ Long Sleeve Mist Dot piece. With the weather in Canada well below freezing, she will be wearing this a lot. Once again, it’s double-layered in the front to keep her insulated while the back is breathable. This built-in-blanket feature is great because I usually have her wrapped up a few times in thin blankets throughout the day if she’s going to be sleeping near the floor. Now I don’t have to worry as much about her being warm enough.
The third mbaby™ item that we have dressed our daughter in is the Sleepster™ Cherry Red Pinstripe. This sleeper looks cute and comfy. The stitching around the neck and cuff area is stylin’ with the unfinished look – yes, my sewing vocabulary is non-existent! And like the Onester™, the material on the Sleepster™ is soft to the touch.
A cool characteristic of the Sleepster™ is the convertible footie. The foot flaps can be folded up during the day to allow my daughter’s feet to air-out and for colder days and sleep-time, the flaps can be flipped over to cover her feet. And with the open-foot option, she can wear this sleeper for a long time as she grows. (see thumbnails for photo)
Another clever detail in the design of the mbaby™ collection is the snap coloring. Rather than have us fumble and misalign the snaps after diaper changes, mbaby™ added a shiny brass snap at the center of the item to help guide us. Brilliant!
Overall, I believe that mbaby™ has definitely accomplished marrying fashion with functionality and is a welcome addition to our baby’s closet!
