Why it's useful
Rompers / jumpsuits are one-piece outfits that usually have snaps on the bottom. They can either have long or short sleeves and come with or without legs.
If this sounds like a onesie, you’re not wrong - rompers are basically fashion-forward onesies that are meant for wear during the day.
What to consider
GOTS or OEKO-TEX certification: We carry GOTS or OEKO-TEX certified rompers made from natural materials to minimize the risk of dermal exposure to harsh chemicals. Read more here.
Important! We recommend pre-washing all textile baby items before using to minimize the chance that any residual chemicals or packing dust don’t irritate your baby’s skin.
Lifestyle and style
Some parents choose to put their babies in onesies and sleepers most of the time. Others opt for different outfits for night vs day. You can also stock up on a couple of 'going out' outfits for special occasions
Rompers are also great for pictures - e.g. your baby's monthly pic!
How many to get
Because rompers are more of a stylistic choice, the number depends on your budget and interests; you might want to start with a couple to see how you like them.
If you want your baby to wear one every day and do laundry once a week, consider getting 7-10; a few extra can be useful for drool-heavy days, unexpected diaper explosions, or when spit-up fountains.
