That's odd. I was positive there was a special name that I just couldn't remember. Digging around on the internet, I can only find "bodysuit" but I'm sure we called them something else.

I quote from Wikipedia:
---------------------
An infant bodysuit is a garment designed to be worn by infants much like a T-shirt; they are distinguished from T-shirts by an extension below the waist, with snaps or Velcro that allow it to be closed over the crotch. The purpose of the opening at the crotch is to facilitate access to the infant's diaper. Like T-shirts, infant bodysuits come in a wide variety of designs and may be worn as undergarments or as outer shirts.

Well-known brands

Other names of this outfit include Onesies (a registered trademark often used in the United States as if it were generic[1][2]), creepers, diaper shirts, babygro, babygrow, mameluco or snapsuits. Babygro is also a trademark brand, invented in the U.S. in the 1950s by Walter Artzt.[3]

I've never heard of the brand Onesies, but I & every other mom I know calls them onesies. When I was new at dressing babies, I called the full-body onesies a mother's IQ test; after a long night and/or day, it was awfully hard to match up all those snaps. :shock:

You'd be surprised how often I've done up half the buttons on a shirt and realised that they're out of alignment by 1 hole! :D
