Those Shoulder Flaps on Baby Onesies, Explained

Those folded envelope sleeves have a real headache-saving purpose.


Published:

Have you always looked at those little folded over flaps on the shoulders of baby onesies and wondered what they were for? Chalked it up to a convenient design? A spot to put your fingers in while you pull them over the babies head? Something to, god forbid, help you put them on clothes hangers? Well it’s none of those.

Mama Undone at Tiaras & Prozac figured out exactly why they were there to help you pull the onesie downwards, over baby's legs rather than over their head, so you can easily get a baby out of a messy onesie. What? Such a genius concept. Why don't onesies come with instruction manuals so we could have saved ourselves so much time trying not to wake a sweaty sleeping baby who had spit up all over everything?
