Before I even get into the products, let’s talk a bit about the company. L’ovedbaby, LLC is the brain-child of Sharon Oved, CEO, who began the company with her nursing shawl concept. The company has now evolved to include a full clothing line. You can read more here.
One of the things I love about this company is that they are so actively involved with their customers via social media. Each Tuesday, you can visit their Facebook page and enter to win free stuff! Their Free-for-All Tuesdays are a fun collaboration with other companies to provide some give away fun for customers (and it was, in fact, one such collaboration that led me to discover L’ovedbaby!). On Big Find Thursday, they offer an item at a discounted rate of $5, usually with a limit of 3 per customer, but often with the opportunity to purchase a 4th surprise item for $5 as well. All of these things add a bit of fun to the shopping experience and bring me back to their page at least twice a week!
Our first foray into L’ovedbaby clothing was the Gl’oved-Sleeve Overall. Here’s a photo of Thing 2 enjoying them for the first time.
In general, I really love these jammies. The cotton is thick, soft, and very obviously high-quality and, most importantly, the baby seems comfy! There are, however, a couple of things I wasn’t completely satisfied with:
- My little cherub is…well, a bit cherubic. These jammies are the snap up type, which is generally what I prefer. However, although I ordered a size up, and they are plenty long enough, I found that my little chubby bunny was popping buttons (more in a “my boobs are too big and this shirt is gapping” kind of way than an, “I’m busting out and supremely uncomfortable” kind of way. We did discover that, if you grab the jammies with your thumb on one side of the snaps and your fingers on the other side and gently lift the baby by the jammies, it stretches them out nicely. Still (and I never thought I’d say this), I’d like to see a zippered option for those babies with a bit more chub.
- I have two sensitive-skinned kiddos, so when I opened the package and saw the brand label sewn on the outside of the garment, I was beyond excited. However, I was pretty disappointed to see a regular label also sewn on the inside. I’d love to see a tagless option!
