What the heck is a "onesey"?

Asked by john65pennington (29057 points ) November 5th, 2011

I was called to a house to make a theft report. Someone had walked into an unlocked front door and stole baby clothes, which included several onesys. I included oneseys in my report, but I did not have a clue as to the meaning of the word. I still do not know, today. I assume it has something to do with childrens clothing. Question: what the heck is a onesey?

The thing babies wear that snap in the crotch!

They’ve ^^ got it covered; unfortunately, the baby probably isn’t.

If you’re involved in the case (I thought you were retired?) keep in mind that these thieves are probably in pretty dire straits. Stealing baby clothes indicates extreme need.

Now I know.

CWOTus…..I am retired, but they keep calling me about cases and people I arrested. I need to move to Jamaica…..out of reach.

A one piece knit t-shirt that has snaps at the bottom, to close it over the diaper.

Ah memories! I think we called them Babygro’s but I never heard of one being stolen.

A onesie has no legs but a babygro covers legs and feet too, and usually worn over a Onesie. Onesies are called baby vests in the UK.
