Front and Back view of bath mitt
one side has a nice soft side for baby and the other has a rough scrubbing side for you!
This makes the perfect shower gift. You can hold the baby and wash them at
the same time. No more searching for the disappearing washcloth! It also has a
nice scrubbing side for yourself!
