Scratch Mitts for Premature or Newborn Babies
Babies often have sharp fingernails, and because at this age they have limited coordination, it is easy for them to scratch their faces. It is particularly important to try to prevent this with premature and very tiny babies, as they are more prone to infection. These gorgeous soft scratch mitts from Scottish company Baby Pink or Blue are part of the Precious Protechtor range of anti-bacterial products, all available from Olivers Babycare.
The fabric is anti-bacterial and chemical free. It has been developed following extensive research and testing, and through the use of so-called 'nano technology'. This technology has allowed the manufacturers to incorporate the naturally occurring metal, silver, into the material. Silver has anti-bacterial properties, and naturally kills off bacteria. It is an extremely safe material, and has no side effects, making it perfect for use with babies. Silver has the ability to kill off bacteria which can lead to infections such as E Coli and MRSA.
This soft fabric is not only anti-bacterial, but also has a thermo regulation system which moves moisture away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric. The fabric then dries faster than normal materials. So baby's skin stays warm and dry, with no moisture pockets.
The Scratch Mitts can be machine washed, using your normal washing powder or liquid. Washing will not affect the anti-bacterial properties of the fabric. It is not necessary to use any softener as the fabric is very soft already, but it is perfectly safe to do so if you wish.
The Scratch Mitts are available in one size, in white, blue and pink.
There are ideal for use in hospital or at home, at playtime or sleeptime. They can also be placed over bottles and teats when not in use to keep them free from bacteria.
The other items in the Precious Protechtor range include the anti-bacterial Baby Blanket, Dribble Drier, Babygro and Vest. These are all available from Olivers Babycare.
