Recently, a mom-to-be friend of mine asked me what brand she should buy for a onesie.
Although onesies are essential throughout babies 1st year, I told her that for the start I wish I had had a lot more diaper shirts. (you know, the ones that snap up the front and are usually quite unattractive but at least you don't have to put it over their head ones...) I also believe that since all brands of onesies fit differently there are some that you like and some that don't fit your little one. But...if you are purchasing a diaper shirt/onesie here are my recommendations and I hope to hear about yours.
DIAPER SHIRT: JOE FRESH (inexpensive and available in white, green, yellow, blue and pink). Plain and simple. They fit my little guy for quite awhile and they are available from newborn to approx 6 months.
ONESIE: I bought CARTERS brand because in the U.S. you can get them very cheap in packs of 5 at discount stores such as Marshall's or Ross Dress for Less. (or even the Carters outlet). I find they wash well and are true to the size. If you get the discount store ones the colours/prints are very limited but most of the time the onesies are covered anyway, but I did find some nice cute ones. One negative I find with Carters? Gender Neutral doesn't really happen---so sports theme/blue ect..for my little guy.
GIFT OF A ONESIE: If I am going to buy a cute cheeky onesie for a friend as a gift it is from LoveChild on Yonge north of Eglinton. "Mane Man" with a lion on it. "Chick Magnet" with a baby chick.
I am looking forward to reading your input on this--I know you all use onesies!
