Funny Baby Bodysuits and Why They're Not Onesies

Updated on January 22, 2015

Chris Telden knows how fortunate she is to be a mom at all, given her high-risk pregnancy and the challenges of extended breastfeeding.

It's a no-brainer: When you're trying to think of a good gift to give to an infant boy or girl, a baby bodysuit with a cute or clever saying - and by bodysuit I absolutely, positively do not mean Onesie - is perfect for three reasons.

One, it's clothing, and new parents can't have enough changes of clothing.

Two, it gets parents laughing, and as I learned after I had my baby, when you're so tired you're a walking zombie, laughter is about the only thing that keeps you going.

And three, the baby will look at everyone grinning at him or her like idiots and giggle like it's the most hilarious joke ever - so everybody wins.

Although they are definitely not Onesies, these one-piece t-shirts with the snap crotch fastener are very popular with parents because they allow for easy diaper changes and are easier to put on and take off than two pieces.

Here are some funny infant bodysuits for newborns and older babies, some trendy, some unusual, others simply cute and adorable, and all with puns, tongue-in-cheek sayings, irreverent humor, double entendres, and other such cuteness. They make perfect presents for Halloween, Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holidays and special occasions...and just to say "congratulations" for being alive.

So what's the deal with baby bodysuits not being Onesies?

Infant Bodysuits Are Not Onesies - Who Knew?

Did you know that Gerber Childrenswear has a registered trademark on the term "Onesies" and will defend it mightily? This is true despite the fact that moms and dads and grandmothers and everyone and their uncle use the term generically to mean those cute one-piece bodysuits with short or long sleeves that snap up in the diaper area and make it oh-so-easy for parents to change a baby's diapers. But there you have it. For the purposes of this article, I'm not calling them Onesies, and no way will I dare to use the singular "onesie" - it's infant bodysuits all the way, or maybe I'll call them threesies-minus-twosies, or even onesers or onesters.

For All They're Not Onesies, They Are Funny

Ideal for a baby boy, the 100% cotton tuxedo baby bodysuit has received rave reviews on from verified buyers.  The bodysuit comes in sizes for 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, and 18-24 months.

The Wry Baby Snapsuit is great for a breastfeeding baby.  The cute cartoon features a silly "instruction" illustration for nursing.  For newborns to 6 months, made of 100% cotton.

And check out the adorable Ipood bodysuit - no, that's not a typo. At the time of this writing, it comes in four standard baby sizes and boy colors as well as girl colors and a black just-try-to-tell-if-I'm-a-girl-or-boy color. Seriously cute.
