Reviewers Feedback:

  • "Grippees™ gripping dots do not irritate an infant's skin while still aiding in holding slippery children as parents wash or move them in and out of the tub or shower. An important point to note is that the upper portion of the Grippees™ is designed for washing, NOT gripping. This way you have a washing area so that all areas of the infant's body can be washed more easily. This is what makes them so special; you can use them both for gripping and washing!"
  • "These Grippees™ wash cloths are undeniably a monumental creation which will drastically reduce the risk of losing your grip on your infant when bathing him/her…. Best of all, they are just so cute!"
  • "From well before the actual birth of the child, they (child) are impacted by every form of stimulation they experience. The stimulation from each experience helps the child begin recognition of sound, touch, feeling, etc "The fabric, the colors, the shapes of BellyLaf's Grippees™ and MiniMitts™ with SmartShapes™, all play a part in the critical skill development of an infant. They are more than just a fancy washcloth, they are a part of this exciting new world that the infant has been brought into most unexpectedly."
  • "I noticed a drastic difference in my being able to handle my child while using product…...To add to that, my baby was giggling whenever she saw the colorful shapes on the cloths."
  • "BellyLaf's Grippees™ save the day even for Dads! By using a shower instead of a bathtub, there is far greater risk of losing grip on an infant while bathing them. BellyLaf's Grippees™ resolve that problem and lower the percentage of risk dramatically. This provides a comfort for Dads never realized before while at the same time providing a level of comfort for the mothers, that their husbands will not drop the infant."
  • "My little daughter found the MiniMitts™ so special and cute as she tried to help her Mommy bathe her new sister."
  • "It is a commonly known fact that both infants and toddlers have a consistent behavioral factor in common, they are all drawn to look at and touch items with bold colors and a variety of geometric shapes and designs. Exposure to these shapes and colors initiates a prolific advancement of a child's creative skills development…..MiniMitts™ provide an immensely greater contribution to the children from actual hands-on application from mimicry of their mother bathing an infant or sibling as well as visual and tactile touch stimulation for the infants."
  • "BellyLaf's wash mitts have created an entirely new point of view in regard to washcloths."
