Trying to dress and undress a wiggly baby is not an easy feat. Sure, it’s not that much of a challenge pulling shirts over heads and putting little arms through sleeves, however, dealing with pesky snaps and buttons while your wee one squirms about can be a trying task. Not only is time wasted snapping, re-snapping, and realigning snaps, but unpredictable, precocious little ones make this task nearly impossible. Fortunately, makers of baby clothing have taken these difficulties into consideration by creating clothing that can be put on without much of a hassle.
Some baby clothing designers have avoided closures all together with one-piece outfits made to look like two pieces. Others use magnets to snap together clothing items without a hitch. With pieces like these, it’s simply a matter of putting the clothing on over the infant’s head and limbs in front, then rocking baby from left to right to tuck in flaps on the back or snap two magnets together. These clothing items are also available in a range of colours and patterns and are super comfy, making these baby clothes booth cute and practical.
Magnetic Baby Gear
Battling a kicking, fussy baby while trying to snap up the infant’s clothing is a daunting chore, which is why parents everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief when it comes to changing time as infant clothing designers have created baby clothes with magnetic closures. What makes these pieces so magnetizing is that they simply connect like magnets and stay together like magic, eliminating mismatching snaps and the aggravation of tugging and pulling snug clothing with snaps together. These magnet fasteners also make changing your baby&emdash;which is a frequent activity&emdash;a breeze. Although you may need to purchase pieces in a size larger as some of their products run smaller, they are still very practical. You may be questioning the safety of baby clothing that uses magnets, however, these magnets are no more dangerous or likely to come loose than regular snap enclosures. Parents also do not h
ave to worry about the magnets being destroyed or demagnetized in the washer and dryer. In addition to being uncomplicated and functional, these baby clothes are stylish and versatile and can easily be paired with other baby items like jumpers and coats from major retailers like M&S.
Babywear That Rocks
In 2009, two old uni friends and mums collaborated to create unique baby attire that doesn’t use snaps, Velcro, or buttons. At a glance, the baby items offered by Rock Me! may seem even more of a challenge than snapping together the typical enclosures. However, these one-piece separates lack snaps, buttons, and other cumbersome closures that make dressing and changing your baby a painful process. Rock Me! garments open up from behind like a pillow sham, allowing you to simply slip the item over baby’s head and arms, and then pull the infant’s legs through the pants part of the piece of clothing, and, viola, you’re finished bundling your bundle of joy. Rock Me! baby items are also quite fashionable and work well with other, more traditional infant clothing.
