Liked It

It’s adorable. I like it. BUT the hood had a slight tear and it’s on the fitting side. My baby is 9 months so I bought the 12-18 month thinking he will have the summer in it… after putting it on there’s no way it will fit him in a few months. It fits perfect right now. I wish it was on the looser side.

Not the same

I’ve been buying these rompers for years - for all my babies. But the ones I just purchased are not the same as they used to be. The material is different and they are fitted instead of loose. I love the loose baggy ones because they were airy and breezy and because I cloth diaper and they were perfect over a cloth diaper. I took a picture but I guess this platform doesn’t support photo reviews. Just imagine the exact same romper in the exact same size but one is *dramatically smaller. Both are the same labeled size only the red one was ordered a few years ago and the blue one just a few weeks ago. I’m sure it’s still nice and might be 5 stars if I’d never experienced the earlier version. The new one is also much thinner fabric than before.

Stylish and protected

We love the bear necessity hoodie. The fabric is so soft and I'm grateful to know our little one is safe from the sun in our summer outings!

Perfect for outdoorsy families

We are constantly on the go in the summer, whether it’s at the beach, hiking, nature preschool events, soccer practice etc. I take so much peace of mind knowing I have a safe option to keep my 3 month old safe from the sun. The hood is super great to put up for those 5 minute trips to the garden when I don’t want to find a hat. The zipper goes all the way to the bottom of the leg so it is super great for diaper changes. If I had to pick one outfit for my baby to wear, this would be it.

Summer must have

I could not find any other full body sun suit, I was so excited to find this one! It’s super soft, stretchy, and cool. It is perfect for hiking in the heat when your baby is strapped to you. It’s nice that it has mittens for baby claws. I will be ordering one for my baby each summer!

My two complaints are that the hood is really big and under the zipper there was some sharp fabric that scratched my baby’s chest. All I had to do was cut it back (it was extra sticking out).
