Flaw

I love onesies. My kids practically live in them until around age 1. However, I must admit that the onesie has a fatal design error. Unfortunately, it can only be taken off over the head. This proves to be disastrous when the entire back inside of the onesie is smeared with poop that has overflowed the diaper. This happened to Lucas today and for the first time ever, I was seriously tempted to just cut the onesie off rather than try to slide it over his head. In the end, I did roll it up as much as I could and went over his head with it. He had poop all over his back and shoulders, but none on his head. I counted that as a victory.

I have a friend that used to stretch out the neck & slide them down over her little girl's shoulders, belly & legs to remove them because her daughter did not like having anything on her face. She hated it when her mother would try to remove the onesie by pulling it over her head.

Yeah, that is pretty hard. Caleb used to do that all the time. We just rolled it too as much as we could and sometimes, he just went straight to the bath!

I agree - not sure how to fix the problem but onesies still are a wonderous item of clothing.

Poo comes off in the bathtub, says the son of a former dairyman.

When Chris was a baby, we started in the bathtub with a rinse down, then started removing the onesie. I feel for you. Hang in there, one day you will look up and he will be to big to put onesies on him.

At what size do they quit making onesies? We're still wearing them like crazy! In fact, it's what my kids sleep in every night! Poopy onesies are definitely a nightmare though. We've had many in varying degrees of mess. Yuck!
