5 Benefits of Baby Onesies

Ever wondered why expecting mothers’ most popular gift is a baby onesie? The truth is that baby onesies provide several comforts to mothers that traditional newborn baby clothes do not. Below five practical benefits are listed.

#1 – Inexpensive
I’ve seen some awesome baby onesies for only $7 at stores like Wal-Mart and Target. I’d like to see you buy an entire outfit for $7.

#2 Diaper Access
If you are an expecting Mom, you’re probably not that excited about all of those diapers that await you (I know I wasn’t). Changing diapers can be hard work (especially if somehow the baby pooped out of his diaper while you were holding him or her), baby onesies make changing diapers a little easier because you can unsnap the baby clothing instead of having to take the clothes off every time you change the diaper.

#3 – The Onesie Doesn’t Move All Over
Babies wiggle a lot and they can easily become agitated if their clothes are moving all over the place (having an agitated baby is not good). Normal clothing does tend to move around a lot more than a one piece does.

#4 – Cute
Babies look extremely cute in bodysuits. The funny sayings on them make your baby look even cuter.

#5 – Multiple Uses
Baby onesies can simply act as a shirt on your baby by putting pants over the baby onesie. Or the baby can wear the onesie by itself and still be just fine. Multi-use clothing comes in handy when it comes to babies.

Making Your Own Baby Onesies

This post is dedicated to the concept of creating your own baby onesies for your children. There are advantages and disadvantages to making your own onesies: the other option being to just buy ones that other people have made.

Important Side note: when we say making your own onesie, we’re not talking about actually sewing the thing yourself, we’re talking about going to a user-friendly website where all you have to do is upload the picture and type in what you want. Of course if you want to hand stitch one, that’s your prerogative.

Using Internet shops is the best and easiest way we have found for making baby onesies. (This is a great way make an “I’d rather be naked” onesie or to add any other favorite saying to the baby clothing). Once your at the web page simply type in the saying you want and then you can choose the text color/style and even put a picture if you want!

One of the benefits of making a baby onesie yourself is that you can put your own funny sayings on the onesie. If you are looking for some funny sayings to spark your brain cells, just try googling “funny baby onesies sayings”.

Another benefit of making your own baby onesies is that you can put pictures on them. I have a picture of my Mom and Dad on my baby boy’s onesie and my parents absolutely love me for it! I highly recommend this.

A disadvantage of making your own onesie is that it can take a little bit more time and energy. Sometimes it is nice to see a onesie that someone else has made and not have to use your own creative juices.
