For the first two months, this is all my baby wore. I like that it’s made of organic cotton and that I don’t have to put this over my baby’s head. As a first time mom, it’s too nerve-wracking to think about trying to put on a regular onesie over your rag doll-like baby. This is awesome because all you need to do is open it up and lay your baby on top.
These onesies tend to sell out quickly – but overall I’m able to make most of my purchases online through the H&M app. Most of the time I would search “Wrapover Bodysuit” to look for new arrivals and I’ll end up purchasing them in several sizes so that I have them ready when he gets bigger. As for pricing goes, a two-pack usually runs for $15 while a three-pack is usually $20 – so it is better value to purchase the 3 pack. I have noticed the occasional markdown (as low as 8.99 for a set). If it’s sold out online, H&M does honour the price match in store.
Overall, I find that these onesies wash well – some colours better than others. I think it makes a great gift and I would say it’s a must have in your hospital bag and baby wardrobe.
On another note, I also purchased a bunch of footed bodysuits while I was pregnant but never really wore them because of the hot weather and the fact that I also don’t find them as convenient for diaper changes (even if it’s the zip-up version). These are my favourite hands down. When JT was a brand new baby, I would have him wear this with a beanie, some socks and swaddle him in a cotton muslin. Now that he’s older, if it’s a little more chilly I’ll throw on some socks before swaddling him.
For Winter Babies or Occasional outings:
I would add a pair of pants and call it a day. My favourite is from Trucs d’enfants [Kid’s Stuff]– they’re made to grow with baby and comes in sizes: “0-6months”, “6-18months”, “18months-4 years” and “4-6 years”. So you really get your use out of these pants. They also come in a short version!
