Have you read the book, Dad Is Fat? (Psst… That’s an affialite link!) It’s funny and if you’re a new parent and have time and free hands to read a little, this is a good one! What does that have to do with this post? Jim (the author and dad to 5) has a whole chapter dedicated to the frustration associated with crazy baby snaps! It made me laugh because it’s so true. And then I was given a onesie from Baby Gap and discovered the golden snap. Check out my most genius mom hack ever… the red snap. (Or whatever color paint marker you have in your junk drawer!)
Here’s the original from Baby Gap. I mean, duh, people. How much better is that. The golden snap snaps to the golden snap. Light bulb!
Now, for whatever reason, not all Baby Gap onesies even have this special feature. It must just be a certain line, but this particular onesie I was given had a golden snap, and I had revelation! Why do all onesies with bazillions of buttons not have a golden snap?! I do not understand. It would be so easy to make one button a different color so that you at least have a starting place with the snap madness. Meet my red paint marker and my 2 minute craft that has changed my baby changing clothes life. All onesies with more than 4 snaps get this treatment. I just paint one button on each onesie red, and voila.
Your welcome, new parents! Or any parent with a baby wearing crazy snap things. And that, my friends, is my advice for new parents, color a snap. Bam. You’re golden. Or red. Whatever!
