If the velcro is fastened before washing it seems to work out fine though. That is hard to do when you work in a bigger NICU because people forget.
We have used Hospital Isolette Gowns they seem to work a lot better because they have snaps down the front all the way and down the shoulders from the neck. They do sell these and you can look Hospital Isolette Gown up on google or any other comparable search engine I suppose. These were recommended by another hospital and work very well. Hope this helps...
