  1. I thought I had learned this lesson well from my first child, so when I found out I was having multiples the second time around I bought zippered pajamas for all of them well in advance to take advantage of thrift store sales. And then one of them was born with clubfoot and can’t wear them. Snaps exist for a reason!

  2. Till you’re tired and the screams of the 7 hells echo through the house because you’ve just zipped your baby into his zipper – I can confirm

    For those mums that don’t know , there’s always a coloured popper where the legs meet the torso to show you where the leg bits end :p

  3. When I was pregnant I was OBSESSED with finding zip up baby jammies (they’re really unusual in the UK). Got massively stressed that most of my baby’s clothes are snaps. You know what? It’s not a big deal. It’s nothing like as bad or as annoying as I’d imagined.

    Baby nightgowns with open bottoms though? Those bad boys are game changers. Love them.

  4. Why you’re wrong:

    1. With snaps, you don’t have to completely expose your baby to change a diaper. You just have to undo a few snaps, fold the leg up (not sideways, so you don’t have to undo all the snaps down to the foot) and then a quick change and snap up the few snaps.

    2. For babies that that need medical equipment that involves tubes and wires, snaps are a must!

    3. Fat thighs? How about we squeeze and squish until we just barely get it zipped up and it’s stretched unevenly across/up into the diaper. LEAKS!

  5. My mom bought us a bunch of baby night gowns and said she made us live in them til we could crawl.

    I don’t like them for going out, but around the house they are great. No fasteners at all! Just pull them up to change diapers, long enough when you pull them back down to keep feet warm.
