The product: These were the natural progression of the long john bloomers. Made of soft stretch knit with a stretchy waistband and leg cuffs, they fit a bit closer to the body than bloomers but the stretch ensures that baby can still move and shake. The flap is purely esthetic and doesn't open (although I thought it would be interesting if it did). And, for those not familiar with long johns, the flap is for the back.
With babies, as you likely know, there can be tiny ones and big ones that are exactly the same age. Try making a piece of clothing sized perfectly to fit both! If you are wanting an exact fit your best bet is to convo me with measurements and I can recommend the best option for you.
Absolute newborn (6-8 lbs) Waist: 11 inches

*International Customers (outside US and Canada)*
Being Canadian, I know what it feels like to be an "international customer" and I really and truly do love all of you. Recently though, regular shipping via unregistered mail has proven to be very unreliable and I honestly don't think the service is good enough for Mabel customers. As a result, I am still happy to accommodate international orders but will be shipping out via registered mail (with tracking) which is why costs have gone up. This is the most reliable and cost-effective method right now and once I find a better one, you will be the first to know! Thanks for all of your patience
