Onesies-a Mommy's Best Friend!

Updated on November 8, 2012

Onesies! What a Great Idea!

If you've never cared for a baby, you may not understand the importance of this statement: "Onesies are a mommy's best friend!" They are such great invention. You try to keep a shirt tucked in on your wiggly little bundle of joy, and you will quickly understand why. Grow 'em up a bit and they'll soon be on the move. All the more opportunity for the shirt to come untucked and the tummy bares to the elements! Keep that tummy covered -- use a onesie!

The best baby outfit in a mom's world is really cute, easy to manipulate, washes like a dream and is affordable--very affordable. Kids'll need a lot of whatever they're wearing to keep them clean.

Onesie's for Baby Girls

For the few who may not have experienced "onesies", here is a simple description. Onesis are most often short sleeved t-shirt like tops that are longer and shaped so that they come down between your baby's legs and snap under the crotch. They are one-piece and therefore the phrase was coined "onesie".

Dressing and re-dressing an infant or toddler in diapers is a tedious, unending process. You may be changing your child as many as 6-10 times a day! Onesies make the process so much easier. Sometimes parents will also dress their children in pants that snap in the crotch. The snaps make the process a breeze!

Onesies are often solid colored and serve as a more of an undershirt. The onesie trend also encompasses more decorative shirts and some very trendy outfits. Carters has produced many stylish sets, including the Purple Cupcake shirt for girls and the "I Dig Grandpa" construction theme for boys (both pictured here).

Have you gone "green" in your home? Onesies even come in an organically friendly line of clothing by Positively Organic Onesies.

Adult Onesies

Onesies for adults? Oh yes. For a sleek look in those tight designer jeans, body suits (a glorified leotard-like onesie) with snap crotch keep a shirt or blouse tucked tightfully-in.

In other cases, adults advanced in age or those working through a health-challenge or disability may find that onesies are the answer. They provide ease in dressing and keep it neat. Adult Cloth Diaper and Easy Access Clothing are two online sources for this convenient apparel.

    I love decorating onesies for a personalized and unique look for my baby as well as for gifts. I'll be sure to link here once I write a hub about how to decorate onesies.

    Oh my goodness...Onesies are adorable. I always knew I would dress my kids in them because I think they make babies look so cute, but it never struck me that they can be easier to keep on as well! Babies do have a habit of disrobing at the worst time.

    I agree! And long sleeve onesies were my best friend in the Bay Area fall weather when I had a newborn. So easy and you know they are warm without having to deal with putting on a shirt and a jacket! And I think they look really good too. Thanks for the article!

    Onesies were such a great invention for parents. I especially like the Carter's onsies that have prints and come as part of one outfit but can also be mixed and matched. So cute!

    Great article! Voted up and useful. :)
