There can be only one. OK, that’s not true. There should be only one.
If you are raising an infant during the winter, you should only dress your child in a onesie with mittens (paws) and footies.
His feet and hands get cold, they need to be covered. Socks fall off, and are way too much work getting on and off. For us, when Dylan is pooping or fussy, he likes to paw his face with his mittens. Doesn’t that sentence sound nice? He likes to paw his face with his mittens. If he doesn’t have his mittens on, it looks like something completely different. Without mittens, it looks like he is attempting to claw his eyes out because the pain is so unbearable he just can’t take it anymore. Get mittens.
Here’s the odd thing, a onesie with mittens and footies is hard to find. Yes, some stores will have them, but ALL stores should have them. It should be the only thing being produced. People should be knee deep in onesies with mittens and footies that they have to cut them off just to see what their kid’s hands look like.
Kicky Pants Viscose from Bamboo Footie in Meadow Snail. It’s pricey. That’s why you register for it. It’s made from 95% Bamboo Viscose and 5% Lycra. No, I don’t know what that means. If you are wondering where the mittens are, you’re not a parent. They fold over, so you can see your child’s hand if you want to. It’s the best because of how insanely stretchy it is. It only snaps down one leg only, which means less area to snap. Once again, it’s hard to find. The current sizes on Amazon are only 3T and 4T. Our friends bought our Newborn size in San Diego.
Yes, there are sleep sacks, and wraps. I know this, but when it comes to actual clothes that you’ll take your kid out in, a onesie with mittens and footies is the only choice.
My advice, if you think you’re going to have kids in 2-3 years, start searching now.
