What Are Onesies® Brand Bodysuits?

Defined as one-piece underwear for babies, they can also be worn as top layers when the weather is warm. Broadly, the word refers to an infant’s close-fitting, lightweight garment featuring snaps at the crotch for easy diaper changes. They may either have long or short sleeves but don’t have legs, so they can easily be paired with leggings or pajama pants for a comfy, stretchy option year-round.

We always recommend that first-time parents stock up on plenty of plain white Onesies® Brand bodysuits as they are affordable, match-all basics that will really come in handy when you’re going through a half dozen outfits every day. You’ll also find fun and cute Onesies® Brand bodysuits that make adorable outfits for daycare, playtime and even bringing baby home for the first time. There are Onesies® Brand bodysuits for every theme, holiday and mood!

Can Babies Sleep in Onesies® Brand Bodysuits?

The experts recommend putting baby to sleep in garments that won’t ride up over the baby’s face, so Onesies® Brand bodysuits are a good option in warmer weather. When things cool down, it’s best to dress baby in long-sleeved sleepwear with feet so that they’re warm and don’t risk materials covering their face during snoozes. Onesies® Brand bodysuits come in sizes 0 through 4T, so they’ll be a part of your child’s wardrobe for years to come.

Features that Set Them Apart

Why buy official Onesies® Brand bodysuits from Gerber Childrenswear? Besides the fact that they’re an amazingly versatile option for everything from lounging at home to newborn photoshoots, Onesies® Brand bodysuits also make life easier for parents and little ones alike.

  • 100 Percent Cotton Construction—Of course, one of the most essential facets of good-quality baby clothing is softness. Cotton is the ideal fabric for newborns because it’s natural and gentle on baby’s sensitive skin. Not only that, but cotton is excellent at regulating temperature and moisture, which helps keep baby cool when it’s hot out and warm when it’s cold out. The fact that cotton is durable and easy to wash doesn’t hurt matters…we all know babies aren’t the cleanest members of the family!
  • Expandable Facets for Easy Dressing—Gerber Childrenswear Onesies® Brand bodysuits are specifically designed to simplify getting baby dressed. Onesies® Brand bodysuits feature an expandable lap shoulder neckline to help pull the bodysuit over baby’s head without snagging or stretching arms. Getting dressed is also simplified thanks to the ribbed leg opening that doesn’t require any fussing or manipulating with feet. When it’s cold out, you can pair Onesies® Brand bodysuits with pants, sweaters and jackets to keep baby warm.
  • Snaps for Quick Changing—Easily one of the most popular Onesies® Brand bodysuit features, the snaps at the crotch allow you to quickly undress baby from the bottom to make for fast, easy diaper changes. Other bodysuits require you to take the entire thing off during changes, which means extra time, energy and fussing. Parents love Onesies® Brand bodysuits when changing at home and on the go!
  • Comfort for Happy Babies—At the end of the day, your goal is to ensure that your little one is happy and comfortable, and thanks to excellent features like super soft cotton, ribbed leg openings and breathable materials, your bundle of joy will be as snug as a bug in a rug when she’s wearing a Onesies® Brand bodysuit! With sizes from newborn all the way to 4T, your Onesies® Brand bodysuit wearer will spend much of her childhood in them.
