I remember – not so fondly – the amount of time wasted snapping, re-snapping, and realigning snaps when Birdie was wee. Wiggly babies and very small closures don’t make any sense. Especially when they’re inconveniently tucked between too beautifully pudgy legs. But recently, I’ve run across a couple of companies working hard to provide parents with other options! Yippie-hoo!
First up, Rock Me Baby (above) avoids closures all-together. With one-piece outfits designed to look like two pieces, it’s a simple matter of putting clothes on over the limbs in front, then rocking babies left and right to tuck in flaps (like a shirt) on the backside. I’m also happy to say their colors and patterns are gorgeous.
Second, we have Magnificent Baby (above), a brightly colored line of clothing using magnets. How brilliant, to hold together the edges of a onesie and hear that satisfying click without any alignment, fiddling, or pressure. Mmm, suddenly dressing a fussy newborn sounds much less fussy.
