About Simply Magnetic Me

Who is Simply Magnetic Me?

In 2010, we launched Magnetic Me, our first babywear line dedicated to making life easier for parents and babies with super-soft, eco-friendly materials and our signature SewSafe magnetic closures. Now—1,000s of snap-less footies later—we want to make the task of outfitting your little one even easier.

Enter Simply: an organic collection of soft, versatile essentials designed to serve as the building blocks of your baby’s wardrobe—whether you’re awaiting your first newborn or restocking your growing babe’s drawers for the umpteenth time. Choose from our curated bundles or build your own bundles (mix and match prints & sizes!). The more you bundle, the more you save. 

What are Simply Magnetic Me products made from?

We believe making good decisions for your baby means making good decisions for your planet. Thant's why we've made every effort to ensure our products and processes are as low impact as possible, from start to finish.

Simply only uses: 

  • 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton with the softest hand-feel
  • GOTS-certified dyes that are free from toxins and conserve water due to a high absorption rate
  • Recycled, biodegradable, and compostable packaging

Are all Simply Magnetic Me footies and onesies sold in bundles?

Yes! Did you know a new baby needs to be changed every 2-3 hours? That’s 10-12 times per day. Whoa, baby! 

Footies & Coveralls are staple items for little ones from birth up to 24 months. A complete outfit all unto its own, footies take you from 3am to midnight and back again. You need a few to keep up with baby’s, ahem, output. Some days you’ll go through four in one day, sometimes less but you should always have some back up just in case, plus an extra one for the diaper bag. 

Simply Magnetic Me footies and coveralls are sold in sets of 2 to 20 which make them perfect for gifting to new parents or for getting your baby’s wardrobe in check! Choose from a pre-curated bundle, or build your own - the bundle discount will apply automatically in your cart! 

How do you ensure quality?

Our high quality fabrics are carefully selected for specific reasons, with baby and parent in mind. Each garment is designed for maximum ease of use. For example, all of our newborn essentials open down the front so new parents don’t have to worry about a newborn’s wobbly neck. And finally, we’ve carefully chosen factory partners who can bring all of our great designs to fruition.

Where are your clothes made?

Our headquarters are in New York City where our designers, sales and production team members are based. All of our clothing is responsibly manufactured in India. All of our production lots are tested for product safety to ensure compliance with CPSC regulations.

How can I reach you?

Product & Safety

Does exposure to magnets or magnetic fields cause people harm?

No; according to the world health organization, exposure to static magnets have not been proven to have harmful (or positive) effects on people. For more information, you can research on the internet or email us at care@simplymagneticme.com for more information.

Have Magnetic Me clothes been safety tested?

Absolutely! Our products have been independently safety tested by a consumer products safety testing bureau.

What about swallowing magnets?

Our magnetic fasteners are safely sewn into our garments to be inaccessible to infants or their siblings.  The magnetic fasteners have sewsafe construction, stitched into our clothes hidden between layers of fabric and would take serious tampering to remove.  Periodically inspect seams and fabric near magnetic fasteners. If tears, rips, or loose stitching are found, discontinue use of the product.

Will Simply Magnetic Me save me time?

Absolutely! Our magnetic fasteners practically close themselves…your baby will be warm and dressed in seconds!

Do Simply Magnetic Me products contain lead?

No way! Our products have been thoroughly tested and all of our products meet lead safety standards.

What’s a phthalate and do your products contain any?

Phthalates are chemical plasticizers used in many ways, such as making plastics softer. Simply Magnetic Me products have been thoroughly tested and all of our products meet phthalate safety standards.

What about pacemakers? I heard magnets can interfere with them.

Keep this garment away from pacemakers and other sensitive electronics. This product contains magnets which may interfere with the proper function of these devices. 

Do you add flame retardants to any of your clothing?

Nope, we do not use any flame retardants on our garments. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) mandates that children’s sleepwear sizes 9-12M and up be either tight fitting OR treated with flame retardants. Simply Magnetic Me follows the tight fitting mandate (so as not to use chemicals on our fabrics). This means that the fit on our larger sizes will be more snug than the fit on our smaller sizes.

What are those ‘health’ magnets that I’ve heard about?

This answer comes right from the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory’s website. The National Maglab is a large institution jointly operated for the National Science Foundation by Florida State University, the University of Florida and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“Since scientists aren’t too fond of yes or no answers, the closest thing we can say here is that there’s no solid evidence that “health” magnets – the kind that some people put in their shoes or pillows and wear on wristbands – have any direct medical benefits.”

Sizing & Care

Are magnets washer and dryer safe? / Are there special care instructions?

Yes, provided you carefully follow our care instructions (see care labels on each garment as different fabrics may have further specific instructions). Just close fasteners before washing and drying.  In the dryer, dry with a full load on low for 30 minutes maximum. Line dry if garments still damp. Use only non-chlorine bleach when needed and do not use in industrial or commercial dryers.

Failure to follow these instructions may result in damage to your garment.

Does Simply Magnetic Me’s clothing tend to run large or small?

Trick question! Running large or small when it comes to baby clothing doesn’t mean a whole lot :). Boys and girls are on different growth charts but baby clothing is cut to the average of both charts. To ensure the absolute best Simply Magnetic Me fit, please choose a size based on height and weight (not age). Check our size chart on each product page or click here.

*For sizes 9-12M and up*: The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) mandates that children’s sleepwear sizes 9-12M and up be either tight fitting OR treated with flame retardants. Simply Magnetic Me follows the tight fitting mandate (so as not to use chemicals on our fabrics). This means that the fit on our larger sizes will be more snug than the fit on our smaller sizes.

    If the refund is in full, the customer will have any funds paid to-date refunded immediately to their card and all future installments will be cancelled. If the refund is partial, the refund amount will be applied to the total purchase amount, starting with the last installment.
