Back-Side Buttons and Snaps

In addition, they are tedious to fasten and toachieve this, you have to flip your child over on its stomach while supporting its neck with one hand and snapping or buttoning with the other.
Cheat on Snapping Bodysuits
You’re gonna be sleep-deprived, it goes without saying of new motherhood. The truth is, by about the second night of diaper changes, you may find yourself lucky going toonly one snap let alone all three. And that’s okay - cut yourself some slack. If you choose side-snapping suits (also known as kimono style) you’ll also avoid having to pull anything over your newborns wobbly neck.
Don’t Work with Baby Shoes
Unless you may need them for bad weather, don’t even bother. Baby shoes are a pain to get on tiny, squirming feet and they also rarely stay with - whether or not the company claims that they can do. Instead, opt for soft-soled shoes with elastics with the ankle to keep feet warm.
