Win No-Slip Charlie for a Safe Baby Bath

by Erica

Today, in honor of Baby Safety Month, we will be featuring and giving away two safety products for babies. First up is the No-Slip Charlie. Later today Susan will give you a chance to win a Family & Friends CPR Anytime Personal Learning Program.

When it comes time to bond with your baby during bath time, the moment should be an enjoyable one. Nothing is cuter than a little chubby baby sitting in a bath of soap bubbles. But those adorable little babies are also slippery. Throw into the mix wet hands and floors and you have the perfect combination for an accident or injury.

The No-Slip Charlie will see to it that you get a good grip on your wet and slippery bundle of joy during bath time. The No-Slip Charlie is a pair of fingerless gloves made of poly/lycra fabric.The fingertips are free to allow you to touch and wash your baby while at the same time providing a gripping surface on your palms and between your fingers. Removable terry cloth wash mitts are also included and easily attach to the back of the gloves with Velcro.

I have been using the No-Slip Charlie while bathing my six-month-old son in our regular tub. Since he is still in his wobbly, not quite sitting yet phase, I appreciate the firm grip the gloves provide while lathering him up. And when it comes time to take him out of the bath, I have confidence in knowing that he won’t slip out of my fingers.

The No-Slip Charlie comes in pink and blue and is one size fits all, which means daddies can take part in a safe baby bath experience as well.

We have two No-Slip Charlies to give away. If you would like to win a pair, please leave a comment below and specify whether you would like pink or blue. This contest is open to both US and Canada. We will draw our winners on October 11th.

I’s love to try the blue ones! My baby is 6 weeks old and I know bathing time will just get trickier in the next few months as he gets more wiggley!

2 Sara Taylor September 23, 2008 at 1:15 pm

Just bathed my 3 month old. Am still trying to figure out how I did this with the first baby without him sliding all over the place! Would love to try these.

3 Melissa September 23, 2008 at 1:27 pm

I’d love the pink set…I often have my husband hand the 5mo/old in to the shower for me to bath quickly and hand her back out. I have never dropped her (Or her sister who exclusively was bathed in that manner) but these gloves would sure be handy. =)

4 Terra Jones September 23, 2008 at 1:33 pm

would blue for my sweet 5 week old love :)

5 Lachelle September 23, 2008 at 1:41 pm

6 Stefanie September 23, 2008 at 1:58 pm

9 jenna September 23, 2008 at 2:20 pm

I had my daughter slip out of my hands at about 3 months old while getting out of the bath. I caught her, but it was a scary moment!

14 Shelley September 23, 2008 at 5:18 pm

18 Erica September 23, 2008 at 10:45 pm

I have a slippery little ten month old, who is often bathed alongside her three year old sister. There have been a few scary moments in the bathtub, and these gloves look like they would have saved some near heart-attacks on this mommy’s end! With my two little girls the pink would be perfection. :) Thanks!

19 Andria September 24, 2008 at 7:09 am
