Thumbful

Mittens with a thumb for baby.

Out of the newborn phase, babies want to grab things, and thumbs help. These mittens are chubby-proportioned to fit the hands of babies up to 12 months, and have a baby-thumb-shaped-thumb.

Mirrored, left and right mittens with gusseted thumb.

I recommend you join them to a length of i-cord or otherwise attach them to the clothes so that they don’t get lost.
