This guest reviewer is Kristy Holmes, who lives in Thunder Bay, Ont., where she is an assistant professor at Lakehead University. She has two daughters – a nutso two year old and sweet (almost) four month old. She likes wine, running, yoga, 90210 (the old-school one), and when all the people in her house who are two and under are asleep.
Kristy received a onesie and T-shirt from BadMother Tees for her honest review.
If there’s one thing that is a toddler and baby staple, it’s good-quality onesies and T-shirts. I would rather have just a few really well-made, quality basics than a whole bunch of cheap, junky ones.
Needless to say, when I received my BadMother long-sleeved onesie and toddler T-shirt, I knew right away that they were both top-notch quality. They are made of beautiful, thick 100 per cent organic cotton that is amazingly soft to the touch. The stitching itself is solid and even after numerous washes they have both come out looking as good as the day I got them – no loose threads, no pilling, no shrinking, no fading and still super-soft to the touch.
The sizes I received (a 3-6 month onesie and 18 month T-shirt) fit both my kids perfectly, although they are quite small for their ages – so I would say that the overall fit of BadMother Tees are more on the smaller side than average or large. [Editor’s note: Miss Q was a big toddler and comfortably wore an 18-24 month BadMotherTees onesie when she was exactly 24 months old; perhaps sizing varies?]
At $25 apiece, these are certainly not cheap and I’m reluctant to spend that kind of money on something that is for everyday use and is only going to last my kid a few months. But, I’m all for quality over quantity and they would make a great shower/baby gift for someone.
My only real issue with the Ts are the slogans on them. The onesie referenced food (“Let’s do lunch, it’s on me.”). Pretty cute. It’s the toddler T-shirt that is a problem for me; the caption refers to being “crazy” and needing “Ritalin.” I realize that BadMother’s thing is to be, well, bad – and some people will surely find this hilarious – but I personally don’t think it’s cute or funny to poke fun at genuine mental health issues and behavioural drugs. That said, this particular T is no longer offered on the website.
So…where can you get it?
