10 Best Baby Onesies & Bodysuits Reviewed
1. Gerber Unisex 5 Pack
Stretchy, breathable material
Unisex design for all genders
Sizes to fit up to 24 mos.
Five-pack for variety
One design may make parents hesitant
We can’t think of any baby that wouldn’t look positively adorable sporting a cute bear onesie. Once again, Gerber comes to the rescue with their 100% cotton onesies, but this time, it’s unisex and fits babies up to 24 months!Read more
It’s sometimes difficult to find separate pants, shirts, skirts, dresses, etc. to fit your baby when they don’t immediately grow according to their age, and that’s when onesies save the day. While most stop sizing at 12 months, parents can take comfort in the fact that Gerber offers extended sizing for those babies who are either fussy and don’t want real clothes yet or just aren’t growing as quickly as others.
The snap closure system featured on this onesies is perfect for making sure you get a secure fit. It also prevents the shirt from pulling up out of their pants and becoming a choking hazard.
The closure system also features a flap that comes from the back and comes up higher in the front making it easier to snap and makes quick diaper changes easier. We like that all ages are equal to Gerber. Onesies are not age-specific, and neither should the babies be who live in them.
2. Touched by Nature Girls' Organic
100% organic cotton
Various fun food designs
Unisex styles for any gender
Machine-wash for easy cleaning
Light-colored onesies may show stains
Packs of three do not have interchangeable designs
It’s true, even clothes can be certified organic these days. This is wonderful news for environmentally and healthy-minded parents, and it’s something that now can be passed onto your children.Read more
Organic = cozy and soft. We have no doubt that once your baby has a taste for the organic onesie lifestyle, they’ll be saying “olive you” in no time!
An organic lifestyle can be a proactive approach to raising your baby to have a healthy and full life, and Touched By Nature has helped make that a little bit easier on parents. Both new and experienced moms and dads can appreciate the organic approach to all things -- even the clothing you put on your baby.
Touched By Nature has created, in our opinion, the most cutest food-pun onesies we have ever seen. Made with 100% organic cotton, these onesies are comparable to dressing your baby in a fluffy, silky soft organic marshmallow. There are ten different 3-packs of amusing food puns to choose from for your baby, all in a neutral color to provide for a unisex style. They’re machine-wash, so now going organic is even easier!
3. Hudson Baby Cotton
Catchy slogans and designs
Suitable for boys and girls, as well as unisex styles
100% cotton material
Stretchy neckline for increased comfort
Can fit babies up to 24 mos.
Sizing can be confusing with so many options and no “one size fits most”
We couldn’t create a list of the best onesies for your baby and not include a 5-pack of onesies for the cutest baby boys, could we? Hudson has blown our mind with their take on variety packs -- and all of the designs they come in!Read more
Newborn babies always feel fragile, which is why we like any onesies that promise stretchy necklines and a comfortable feel on the skin. These onesies are not only the perfect combination of that, but look cute doing it, too.
Babies go through a lot of clothes during the course of the day. It is important that when purchasing baby clothes that you check to make sure that they are machine washable. This set of the onesie is machine washable. They can easily be through in the washing machine with baby safe laundry soap and then machine dried. Keep them looking new with frequent washes.
Your child will never be out of style with 14 different styles and colors to choose from. These onesies are 100% cotton, which is by far the comfiest thing a baby can wear, so whether your child is more of a dinosaur lover or perfect gentleman-in-training, you have options. What’s one better? Hudson also offers the same perfect onesies in ten different baby girl designs as well.
4. Hudson Sleeveless 5 Pack
Gentle, breathable cotton fabric
Run a little large but shrink in the wash
Bruh, do you even lift? Obviously, you do, if you have a baby on board in your life, so break out the matching muscle tanks and twin up with your little one.Read more
The cool, soft, lightweight cotton is gentle on baby’s skin and helps to keep them cool. Between the breathable fabric and the sleeveless design, these bodysuits are a great option for warmer climates or seasons. Hot babies are unhappy babies, and unhappy babies aren’t afraid to let you know exactly how they feel.
Each set includes five different cotton bodysuits, all made from 100% super soft cotton that’s perfectly suited to warm weather. All items are machine washable and feature a snap-bottom closure, and additional onesie extenders are available for purchase so that your child can keep rocking these all summer even as they continue to grow.
These sleeveless sets are perfect for some summer fun in the sun. With themes varying from Mermaid to Octopus Sailor, your baby will look good and ready to beat the heat. If you’re taking baby to the beach, you don’t want them decked out in stuffy bodysuits. These lightweight, sleeveless designs are adorable and won’t trap extra heat around your child’s skin so everyone can enjoy the warm weather together.

Carter’s is one of the leading baby brands in America, currently, with roughly ten products sold for each infant born in this country.

The designs are trendy enough that you’d think they came from a high-end boutique, and the fabric is soft, comfortable and high quality. With five chic, unique designs in each set, you just can’t beat this deal.
Each of the necklines of these onesies is expandable. This makes it easy to be able to get over babies’ growing head. At the shoulder, the material comes together in a flap type design which makes it be able to expand from the neckline to the shoulder section of the onesie. It is also a great design that makes it possible to be able to pull the onesie down over their waist when they have a diaper accident.
Their prints and patterns are all vibrant and inspired by the joy children bring into our lives. These five-pack sets hold true to that standard, made from soft cotton and featuring a whole host of lively designs. Try the Cat Lover’s Pack, the Sweethearts, The Foodies, or the Unicorn Snuggle Set. Floral designs, polka dots, and a Sporty Set round out the selection, and you can choose between short-sleeved and sleeveless.
6. L'ovedbaby Organic Cotton
GOTS certified 100% organic
Water-based color dye
Fits babies up to 12 mos.
Suitable for preemies
Some parents may prefer traditional bottom-snap onesies
In keeping with the idea of organic material, L’ovedbaby has created a onesie that is rare, yet unique and incredibly functional in its own way. For parents who look outside the box and parent in a modern way, the organic kimono onesie was made with your baby in mind.Read more
Lessening the chance of an allergic reaction or rash in babies is something most parents strive for, and L’ovedbaby offers an option that simply put, can’t be beat.

We don’t just like this kimono, we love it. A front-opening onesie revolutionizes the world of diaper-changing, and changing clothes, period.
7. Carter's Baby Simple Joys
Six cute, assorted onesies in each set
Bottom snap closure
Nickel-free, and made with soft material
Shrink in the wash, so order a size up if you need
Ignore the “Boys” tag on this; exempting one or two options that specify gender, little girls and boys can both rock these with equal flair. Each set includes six varied machine-washable onesies with snap closures and expandable shoulders.Read more
The expandable shoulders allow you to pull the onesie down and off of the baby, in case they make a mess and it’s too much of a hassle to try to bring the bodysuit up over their head. The snaps at the bottom make diaper changes easy, and the variety of designs means even if they make a mess of one, there are five more in the set for them to model.
All panels for snaps are reinforced and the material used is nickel-free. Some of these styles are sassy, some are sweet, and all are just too darn cute. We think you’ll like the variety of each spread, and customers all agree that the fabric is soft and stretchy so baby will be happy too.
Each set features a different theme: The Black and White Set (starring a cute gray dino pattern as well as a mini whale one), The Blue and Gray Set (including a sports/jock print, and a triceratops bodysuit), The Navy and Red Set (one onesie reads “Mommy’s Buddy” next to a picture of a cute pup), The Navy Turquoise set (wherein you’ll find fuzzy monsters, dinosaurs, and transportation patterns), The Solid Color Multipack, The Striped Multipack, and The White, Blue, Gray and Red Set (boasting more fuzzy monsters, cars, sports, and best-buddy-puppies in the mix).

8. Marvel 5 Pack
Five different Marvel designs come in a variety pack
Lap shoulders for baby comfort
Easy-to-wash fabric for easy cleaning
Not 100% cotton; instead they’re a 60% cotton, 40% polyester blend
Do you remember when you were a little kid, and your parents told you that you could be anything you wanted -- including a superhero? Now thanks to Marvel, that idea can be hatched at infancy!Read more
Marvel has taken the world by storm, and we like that they’ve included babies in on that action-packed adventure. Everyone has a favorite superhero, and eventually your baby will, too in these soft, super bodysuits!
The blends of materials that these onesies are made from making them more durable than the standard blend. It is a blend of fabrics that provide the onesie with a cotton and polyester blend. Polyester blends provide a more breathable design and do not shrink during washing.
The Marvel 5-pack of onesies includes a stunning array of superhero designs like The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, and one multi-hero onesie. They can be used as everyday wear, or double for everyone’s favorite dress-up holiday: Halloween! We’re sure you’ll get a fun kick out of these onesies, perfect for your superhero baby.
9. Burt's Bees Organic Short Sleeve
100% organic cotton
Five soothing patterns in each set
Flatlock seams to reduce rubbing and chafing
Completely chemical free and responsibly sourced
The sleeves run a little tight on bigger baby arms
Who knew Burt’s Bees had a baby clothing line? As true as ever to their mission to be environmentally friendly while creating quality, sustainable products, this five-pack is made up of 100% organic combed ring-spun cotton, certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).Read more
The cotton is responsibly sourced and ethically produced. It’s not only soft and safe for the environment, but it lasts longer and looks newer after sustained use as well. Several customers commented on how vibrant and clean their product looked after several times through the wash to remove pesky stains.
This organic cotton goes above and beyond expectations. To begin with, it’s combed and ring-spun until all impurities are removed and its oh-so-soft. It’s earth friendly, with no harmful pesticides or chemicals ever having touched the fabric and, subsequently, your baby’s skin, and it lasts up to five times longer than normal cotton. It’s good for Mother Earth, it’s good for the baby, and it’s good for you.
Each onesie is tagless, with a company applique applied to the front, and a printed logo inside the collar as well.

The material is perfect for making them comfortable so while they look good they will feel good too.
The front bottom of the onesie features a design that allows the back to come up higher on the front where it snaps. This makes it easy to bring the back forward and get the snaps secured.

Criteria Used for Evaluation
The style of a onesie for babies is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a new concept. However, there is a reason they’ve stuck around for this long, and why the only thing that has changed is the style and design of them. “Normal” clothes for a baby, especially still in the infant stages, can be very restricting and uncomfortable. Granted there are clothes specifically made for newborn babies, but we view onesies as the most comfortable option.
The reason we had listed (mostly) 100 percent cotton onesies, is because it is non-allergenic. When dealing with a newborn baby, we think that the least reactive fabric is the better route, which is why any onesies listen above that are a cotton blend, tend to lean towards older baby ages. Just like going organic, the type of fabric you choose to wrap around your baby is your own. Our goal is to help you make the best choice!
We’ve provided a style unique to every family and baby, and view more positive benefits than negative: They’re easily layered for warmth as well as style (by adding pants, skirts, jackets, hats, etc.), comfortable enough to essentially live in, easily changed and cleaned, and efficient for any type of travel or weather.
We know your baby is the most important person in your life, and we want you to know that we care, too. Plenty of research went into picking out not only the right onesies but the reasoning behind why they are right for you and your baby. From styles, to ease of changing, to fabric makeup and flexibility, we’ve thought about it all.
Clothing your child shouldn’t be something to stress over, and we’ve tried our best to make it a fun and unique experience, by finding a onesie that suits every fashion style and lifestyle. Here you'll find the listed criteria that we’ve used to carefully and thoughtfully select every onesie we’ve listed above, and we hope that you’ll be as satisfied with the results as we are.
Other Factors to Consider
When it comes down to it, going organic is similar to going “green.” It’s a personal choice within your family, and whether one is better than the other depends on a parent’s level of comfort dressing their baby in certified organic fabric or fabric that is 100 percent pure, but may not be organic. To us, there is no right or wrong here–just a personal choice, and we are happy to provide both options for a happy family and an even happier baby. Our list was comprised of the best onesies in both categories so that neither was left more superior than the other.
Frequently Asked Questions
q: Do the variety-pack onesies come with all the colors/designs shown in the pictures?
Yes, all variety pack onesies are true to the images that are shown.
q: Are these all 100 percent cotton?
All the onesies listed are 100 percent cotton unless otherwise specified in the Pros/Cons or Benefits sections.
q: How should I wash this outfit?
Most cotton, as well as blends, are safer being washed in cold water to avoid shrinking, fading, discoloration, and general wear-and-tear. All can be machine washed.
q: My daughter weighs 16 pounds, what size would you suggest?
All onesies differ based on the maker and size range. Sizing charts are available, the general rule is to go a size or two up just in case.
q: Why are onesie one of the safest sleepwear for newborn babies?
Onesies are great sleepwear for newborns because of the ‘fit’ design. Babies who wear clothing that is too loose when they are sleeping run the changes of SIDS. One piece designed outfits with a built-in secure closure system helps avoid the ride up over their face.
q: Should I buy a few sizes bigger than what my baby wears?
Yes, please do. If you buy the next one or two sizes up from what your baby wears this will give optimal wear time and save on your expenses. Babies grow rapidly and often times you can buy clothing a bit bigger and work with it until it is too tight to wear anymore.
