mimiTENS: for babywearing and beyond

mimiTENS- for babywearing and beyondSponsored post.

Socks for babies are stupid. Socks on babies don’t stay put. A lot of baby booties don’t stay put either. Little Miss Cub loses her booties and socks mainly when I’m putting her in and taking her out of her high chair and when I’m wearing her. Babywearing Mamas like me are always on the hunt for footwear that won’t be kicked off and lost, and footwear that doesn’t get pulled off when extracting baby from the carrier. Anna-Maria, who already made stay-put mittens, was challenged by her fans to make an equivalent bootie, one that was washable, leather-free and wouldn’t fall off. 

mimiTENS 2 Look! It’s a bootie-sock hybrid, with no strings attached! With a water-resistant nylon exterior and lined with 3M’s Thinsulate and bamboo/organic cotton rayon fleece, mimiTENS bootie soles are no-slip ultra suede.

I have some super sweet booties in Little Miss’s closet that tie on, and I’d qualify their stay-putted-ness as “good.” Our mimiTENS would have to be categorized as PERFECT. To take baby out of the Huggaloops, you inevitably lose socks, shoes or slippers because you are pulling each foot through the skin-tight waistband. I took Little Miss out of the Huggaloops five times during this photo shoot, and her mimiTENS did. not. budge.

Our mimiTENS are the only slippers that don’t come off every time I pull her out of her high chair. Until it’s warm enough for bare feet, she’ll be wearing them every day in lieu of socks (or in addition to socks if it’s cold enough).

As she gets more and more mobile, I am coming to appreciate our mimiTENS even more than I thought possible. The awkward sort of scoot, sort of crawl she’s doing right now is no match for most footwear.

Her mimiTENS don’t so much as slouch when she’s motoring backwards on a variety of surfaces! Plus, I don’t worry about her legs being cold when she’s just wearing a pair of thin tights, and it’s a bit chilly for our stroll.

But mimiTENS is more than just stay-put mittens and booties. Anna-Maria sent Little Miss Cub one of her bamboo/cotton blend hats and cowls to match. Obviously, these are accessories that are great for any outdoor activity, but I am a particular fan of how functional and fabulous they are when I’m wearing her!

The mimiTENS cap and cowl come in teal, navy, grey and purple and are nice and neutral. They are cute enough for baby, but totally cool enough for mom and dad, too. I think my kid looks like she should be in a catalogue when she’s rocking her mimiTENS accessories!

I love that mimiTENS are made in Canada, by the way. It’s getting harder and harder to find affordable children’s accessories that are manufactured here, so this was a very pleasant surprise. If you’re looking for booties that your child will never lose, and warm, functional and fashionable accessories to keep them warm outside, look no further than mimiTENS!

  9. Mandy P.

    Solves two problems in one! Pants riding up, and shoes/socks coming off – Love this! And the fact that LO can wear them anytime is an added perk. Thanks for introducing me to this great product!

  10. Janice

    Would love to win a pair but might have to buy anyways 🙂 once my little one is more mobile we will need something to keep her warm and stay on as well. Great job mimiTens!

  11. Having seen these on Little Miss Cub in person, I NEED these. They are brilliant! I love that they don’t budge!


    I love that these are shoes that will not come off easily.

  13. As a baby wearer I’ve been looking for boots that are long enough to also cover calves for those colder days. This is sheer brilliance! I true ly hope to win a pair!

  14. Leah

    I love the design, my daughter can’t keep her shoes on so I’d love to try these!

  33. Madison De Lair

    I have yet to try these but I reeeally love the fact that they stay on and would be harder for baby to take off, and they keep babes feet and ankles warm. My son always takes his shoes off or kicks them off when he’s in the Tula. Major pain in the bum. Plus they’re super cute.

  34. Nicky
