Side snap shirts for newborn?


Something I just started thinking about - Im behind I know! Do I need to get side snap shirts for my LO for before her cord falls off? Or can she be in onesies? (The ones that snap in the crotch) I was assuming I would be dressing her in a onesie & sleepsuit right away - but wondering if this is right? Any advice is greatly appreciated - thanks!

Hi

No need for side snap the normal onesies are fine, depending on the size of LO the cord may be covered by the nappy anyway

The side snaps help in the first week or so because they're hard to dress! The normal onesies, you need to go over their head. So side snaps are convenient... and yes, they keep away from the cord area. Overall, they're nice to have in the first few weeks. I bought several, but too late, she's 4 weeks now and we don't use them anymore. Her cord's fallen off since week 3.

Never heard of side snaps ?? But where we are we just use normal vests (onesies?) which fasten under the bum, I think for most people they'd say the cord is hidden by the top of the nappy.

Thanks for the replies girls!

I never even thought about the ease of not having to put it over her head charliesmom.... I'll maybe want to get some just for that!

About the diaper covering up the cord - I thought that the newborn diapers went below the cord - thats what someone told me anyway. Then size 1 and up are cut regular. Hmmm dont know

not all of them are under the cord. We still had to fold over the diaper for the first week or two. No biggie.
