There are products that you try in your lifetime that are complete game changers for you. For us, it was the baby sleeper gown. We accidentally purchased one when our oldest son was born and decided to keep it to try out anyway. Nighttime changes were never the same!
Here we are fourteen years later, preparing for the birth of our sixth child, third boy, and we are faced with another game changer. A baby gown that converts to a jumper! Before, we were required to change clothing before beginning our morning routine because little ones have limited mobility in the gowns. Now, we can snap our Finn + Emma Convertible Gown into a gown at night, and re-snap it into a jumper during the day! This tiny piece of clothing is genius! Who knew innovation still existed when it came to baby clothes?
Yes, yes, I know there are other brands creating convertible gowns for baby, but do they hold GOTS Certification on their organic cotton? G.O.T.S. certification states that the fibers were organically grown AND fabric/product was made in eco-friendly fashion. Basically, when it comes to certified organic clothing, G.O.T.S. is what you need to be looking for!
“Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with minimum social criteria. The key criteria of GOTS, its quality assurance system and the principles of the review and revision procedure are summarized in this section.”

What I LOVE about Finn + Emma’s Convertible Gown:
I love Finn + Emma’s Convertible gown because the jumper looks like a jumper, and the gown looks like a gown. I think It is hard to make a piece of clothing multifunctional without one of the versions looking a little… off. The continuation of the snaps from the shoulder down to the bottom of the gown are appealing to the eye; nothing looks peculiar about it. Once the gown is converted to a jumper, the snaps look just as appropriate and lay in the correct location on the baby’s legs. You can tell this design was well planned.
Finn + Emma Accessories:
Selecting my Convertible Gown was easy, choosing an accessory, well, that was the hardest part of my shopping experience with Finn + Emma. Most of the accessories in their unisex collection match all of the outfits! Each booties set and rattle contains portions of the color pallet to match whichever unisex clothing your baby is wearing. Since I couldn’t decide, I went with the easiest route – a matching blanket.
The Finn + Emma blanket is a two layer reversible blanket. The blanket is light enough to be used in warmer climates while the two layers provide adequate warmth in cooler weather. The fabric used is also 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton. It matches the convertible gown very well without showing any difference in color tone.
We can’t wait to put our newest addition in his Finn + Emma Convertible Gown and wrap him in his matching blanket. Look for new arrival pictures of him wearing this adorable set this fall!
