Zipper vs. Button Onesies — What’s Best for Babies?

December 13, 2021

As you shop for adorable onesies for your little one, you may wonder which kind of onesies are best. You can choose from zipper onesies, button options or some of both. There are pros and cons to each, and Sweet Girls Boutique has the facts to help you make the right choice!

Zipper vs. Button Onesies

Both types of onesies will keep your little one cozy,

Button Onesies

Snap or button onesies have benefits, including:

  • You may only need to undo a few snaps to get your baby changed at night.
  • Snaps are less likely to get stuck or broken.

There are some drawbacks. For example:

  • Buttons can be tricky to line up in the dark or when your baby is wriggling.
  • If you don’t line up the snaps correctly, you can create bunched-up material or an incorrect fit.
  • It can take a little longer to get your baby changed into button onesies.

Zipper Onesies

Zipper onesies have their own advantages:

  • They can be faster to get your child into and out of, especially during nighttime changes.
  • There’s no risk of getting buttons misaligned.

They also have a few drawbacks:

  • The zipper can get cold on baby’s skin, so look for onesies that keep the metal separated from the fabric.
  • You need to unzip the whole onesie to get the baby out, which can be disruptive.
  • Zippers can get stuck or snag a baby’s skin.

Many parents develop a strong preference for one kind of onesie or another. In many cases, what works for a newborn doesn’t work as well after a few weeks. If you’re a new parent, consider picking up a few snap onesies and a few zippered so you see for yourself which one feels most natural and which one both you and baby prefer. You may also find you prefer different onesies during the day and at night.
