Carter's long-sleeved tees are wonderful wear for everyday, under clothes or pajamas, or alone with a diaper. The 100% ribbed, soft cotton has two side snaps to make changing baby quick and simple. Integrated fold-over cuffs in sizes Preemie and Newborn keep little hands from scratching. Designed not to rub on a newborn's sensitive umbilical cord, snaps are nickel-free on reinforced panels.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Priced well
  • Soft
  • Makes diaper changes easy
  • Fold-over mittens prevent baby from scratching


  • Not available in organic cotton

When my three children were born in the 70's, these were the best baby tees one could buy. The cotton was soft; they washed well and were durable. I am looking for them since May, for my new grandson and have not been able to find larger sizes (6-9 or 9-12 months). They seem to only be made in Preemie and Newborn sizes. What a shame! I have even tried the website to no avail.
