My Favourite Things: Onesie Extenders

Raindrops on roses and onesie extenders....

As moms we all have those things (objects, products, inventions, etc) that we love and that save time or money and make life easier and more enjoyable. Here is one of mine: Onesie Extenders.

What are "onesie extenders", you ask? Well, onesie extenders (or garment extenders) are little pieces of cloth with snaps on them that add length to your onesies. As the mother of a baby with a long torso who also uses cloth diapers, I find these little things to be absolutely brilliant.

They are great if you would like your onesies to:
  • fit long torsos
  • fit more easily over cloth diapers
  • fit for a longer period of time (for example, a 6 mos onesie may be extended to fit as a 9 or 12 mos onesie)
  • fit chubbier babies
  • fit babies who are thin and long... or tall? I guess that depends if they've started to stand :)
The brand I have are the iPlay Snap N' Grow Garment Extender. They come in a 3 pack and each extender has a different snap size (small, medium and large) so you will be equipped to extend most onesies.

I purchased my extenders at Birth Source (storefront) for $7.99. You can also order from them online, but their site is undergoing some renos so you'll have to contact them as the extenders are not listed on the site right now.

So, when the dog bites and bee stings I take comfort in the fact that, at the very least, my little onesies can be extended. Nice.

  2. Nat, you rock! Leif also seems to be upwards of the 90th percentile for height. He grew 3" already! I am going to pick up those wonderful snappy extenders asap cuz he has grown out of most of his 0-3 mo onesies.

  3. I wish I had those onsies extenders when my daughter was in onsies. You have a lovely blog! I am following you! Thank you for joining Mama's Little Nestwork!
