This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in May of 2018. Your baby might do a lot of precious things that mimic adult behavior, but sitting still and lifting one leg after the other for an outfit change just isn't going to happen. Luckily, onesies are the perfect garments for squirmy newborns, thanks to snaps and openings that make changing a dirty diaper quick and easy. Our selection offers choices that are both comfortable and picture-worthy. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 09, 2020:

Like swaddling blankets and comfortable bedding, a set of onesies is sure to be high on the list of most parents preparing to welcome a newborn. Their convenient one-piece design with snaps makes for easy changing of clothing or diapers, which really comes in handy when you’ve got a fussy little one on your hands. Whether you prefer neutral designs like the Gerber 5-Pack, which are sold in solid white, pink, blue or gray, or Carter's Bodysuits, which come in an array of fun prints, our list has something for you.

Today we added in the Burt’s Bees Organic, which feature a thoughtful lap shoulder design that makes them a cinch to put on and remove, and they feature a breathable cotton fabric that makes them comfortable enough for your baby to spend lots of time in. They’re made with smooth flatlock seams and are soft enough not to irritate sensitive skin. The Hudson Baby Unisex also joins the list, and this set of five long-sleeve garments is sold in your choice of dozens of themes, such as airplanes, bears, elephants, firetrucks, hearts, and much more. Their stretchy fabric maintains its shape well, and sturdy snaps on bottom keep them securely closed. Several kimono-style, wraparound onesies are featured in our selection, as many parents prefer the ease with which they can be put on and removed. The Kate Quinn Unisex, Babysoy Bodysuit, and L'ovedBaby Kimono, all come with convenient front snaps as well as the ones on the bottom. For a selection that covers your little one from neck to toe, look to the Magnificent Baby Footie, which is made with magnetic fasteners which will help you put it on or take it off in no time. Mitten cuffs on the smaller sizes help keep little hands warm and prevent accidental self-scratching.
