Anyone who has ever changed baby’s clothes in the middle of the night or battled an older infant during an outfit change understands how difficult snaps, buttons, and even zippers can be.

Magnetic baby garments were created to make dressing babies easier by embedding magnets in the fabric and using the attraction between the magnets to close and fasten the clothing.

Are magnetic baby clothes safe?

In general, magnetic baby clothes are safe for your child to wear. On the garment, there are no exposed magnets that might come into touch with your baby’s skin. The magnets are really inserted in numerous layers of cloth to reduce discomfort and choking concerns.

If your baby has any implanted medical devices in his or her body, such as a pacemaker or defibrillator, contact his or her doctor for more information. Even weak magnets can interfere with these devices, despite the negligible danger.
