Snap-up Pajama Rant

Some mornings I go get Bex out of his crib, and this is what I find:
Whoever invented snap up infant sleepers should be jailed. Jailed, I say! As far as I'm concerned, zippers are the only way to go. Granted, the snapped sleepers are cute, and during the day, if you have a free hour or two to dress your baby, well then, no problem. But in the middle of the night, it's pretty much impossible. At three am, my brain is horribly incapacitated by the stupor of sleep inertia. In addition, I'm going as fast as I can so the squalling baby (one or the other, it's all a blur anyway) won't wake Bug. My fingers are fumbling, the baby's legs are kicking with hungry impatience, it's dark. Then, just when I think I'm almost done, I come up one snap short. WHAT?!! How can this be?! I started with the very first snap down at the foot, proceeded to the very next one in line, used the quadratic equation, made sure all the planets were aligned, and yet... still. one. snap. short.

This made me laugh hysterically. Because it is so true!! P refused to change Kirsten at night if she was in snaps! I 100% agree with you!

hahaha... i agree, zippers only whenever possible. and don't even get me started on infant clothes w/ BUTTONS! i do like, however, that even though u missed a snap (or two), the stripes on the pj's still line up.

Ah, but (I'm embarrassed to admit that) I once zipped a chubby little neck. Ouch! Baby cried. I cried. I vowed to never use zippers on babies again...

Those stripes are adorable!
