Generally speaking, the pieces that traditionally make up the stereotypical baby boy’s wardrobe differ from the pieces that make up a baby girl’s closet. But despite their stark differences, there’s one piece of clothing neither baby can go without and that’s a bodysuit, otherwise known as the onesie. A bunch of onesies are actually unisex, which definitely comes in handy if you’re planning on popping out another baby in years to come. However, there are onesies for boys that are specifically designed with your little man in mind, clad with all the sports memorabilia, bulky stripes and woodland creature patterns your heart can handle.
Onesies can remain a staple in your child’s wardrobe throughout the first year, but because your little one is always growing, it’s in your best interest to buy onesies in bulk and in a range of sizes. In addition to growth spurts, you can also count on having to change your little guy out of one bodysuit and right back into another multiple times per day due to spit up, throw up, poopy diapers and general mess (the rumors are true: boys love dirt and mud). The best onesies for boys are made of quality material, are super cute and, most importantly, easy to put on and take off. Browse through the below to find the perfect fit for your little boy.

1. Simple Joys by Carter’s Baby Boy’s Short-Sleeved Bodysuit
Simple Joys by Carter’s is a mama favorite and for good reason: These short-sleeve onesies for boys are made from baby-soft cotton (though depending on the style you choose, the fabric is subject to change), and feature snap closures and expandable shoulders, guaranteeing convenience for you and comfort for them. Sizes range from preemie to 24 months, and you can choose from bundles with simple designs such as black and white or solids, or jazz things up with different color patterns and cartoons.
2. Burt’s Bees Baby
This set of five baby boy onesies is made with completely organic cotton so it’s safe and comfy for your little one. Available in seven styles, you can choose a pattern both of you will love for napping and playing. The lap-shoulder construction offers plenty of stretch so it’s easy to dress them during changes. Plus, the breathable cotton is great for sensitive skin.
3. Luvable Friends
This set of five baby boy onesies (however, they can be used for any baby!), are made with 100-percent cotton, so they’ll be extra snuggly and cuddly while napping or playing. The coordinating colors in the set are also perfect for photo-ops if you have multiple babies. They’re machine washable so cleaning up is a breeze, and the snap closures make diaper changes a cinch.
4. Hanes Ultimate Baby Flexy Long Sleeve Bodysuits
It doesn’t matter if your bundle of joy was born in the winter or not — temperatures drop every year, and even though you can always layer up over short-sleeve pieces, it’s definitely worth stocking up on long-sleeve bodysuits for the chillier months. Hanes onesies range in sizes from 0-6 to 18-24 months, and have been designed with the brand’s exclusive Flexy fabric that stretches to fit your baby for longer. They also feature expandable shoulders that gently ease over the baby’s head, and reinforced snaps for durability and efficient diaper changes.

6. Hudson Baby Unisex Cotton Onesie
If there’s anything we love more than a baby’s outfit that makes us automatically swoon from its overwhelming cuteness, it’s a onesie that’s stylish and can hold its own — and by that we mean a bodysuit that can be rocked 100 percent solo. From its “Like A Boss” bundle to the “Handsome Fella” collection, Hudson Baby fuses fashion and function into each and every one of its onesies for boys. Plus, the pieces are soft and high quality, so even when your little guy makes a mess all over himself (as he will, multiple times a day), just pop ‘em in the laundry and they’ll be good as new after the drying cycle.
