Frequently Asked Questions
What Material Is Best For Baby Onesies?
The best types of materials for baby onesies are natural and organic fabrics like cotton. Cotton is breathable, light and soft so will keep your baby comfortable and safe.
Cotton blends, particularly polycotton, are also great because they have added stretch and durability.
What Size Onesie Would I Buy For A Newborn Baby?
Most baby onesies offer newborn sizing, however, if you are in any doubt about what size you should opt for then it is always best to go for a bigger size.
Babies grow incredibly quickly, especially in the first few months of life, and if you go for a small size they are sure to outgrow their onesie before long. Leaving a little growing space is always appreciated.
Should A Baby Onesie Have Short Or Long Sleeves?
Baby onesies can have short or long sleeves, and which style you choose will depend on the season and climate that your baby is living in, as well as the intended purpose for the onesie.
Long sleeved onesies are best for fall and winter, and are great at overnight wear. Short sleeves work well in spring and summer and are great as day wear since you don’t have to worry about long sleeves getting messy or wet!
How Should I Wash A Baby Onesie?
Most baby onesies are machine washable, and suitable to be dried in a tumble dryer. To avoid shrinking or fading the onesies it is best to avoid very hot wash cycles.
If your baby has stained their onesie badly then try soaking it in hot water over night.
What Fastenings Are Best For Baby Onesies?
Wherever possible, easy access poppers and baby friendly zips are the best kind of fastenings for baby onesies.
When you have to change tens of nappies everyday, having a quick and easy popper fastening at the bottom of your baby’s onesie will speed things up remarkably.
Front zippers are a great choice for toddlers as there is less fiddling involved when you are trying to get them dressed and undressed.
Just be sure that the zipper is child friendly in order to avoid any little fingers getting caught unnecessarily.
