What’s one staple item in your closet you simply cannot live without? For some it’s a pair of booties or running shoes, for others its an LBD that accentuates all the right places. For babies, it’s a onesie, and trust us when we say your babe is going to live in these bodysuits from the time she’s a newborn all the way through toddlerdom. Onesies function as everything from undershirts and pajamas to one-piece ensembles. They’re also the top clothing item you should buy in bulk for your little one because they grow out of them quickly.
And especially if you’re buying for a baby girl, dressing her up like the doll she is only makes the process more enjoyable. Obviously we recognize that your little one isn’t a real toy, but parenting comes with the fleeting right of passage of picking out your baby’s clothing (enjoy it while it lasts). This means choosing some adorable ensembles and accessories, but stocking up on essential pieces for their wardrobe — like the best onesies for girls — is part of the fun, too. Here are some of the best picks of the pile.

1. Hudson Baby Unisex Cotton Bodysuit
Onesies can be simple and precious, and Hudson Baby’s bundle of bodysuits is a prime example of that sweet-spot combination. Moms love the classic style of these pieces that feature monochromatic color palettes, stripes and polka dots, as well as the delicate bow resting in the center of their scoop necklines. Available in sizes from 0-3 to 18-24 months, Hudson Baby’s set of onesies for girls is the perfect collection for her capsule wardrobe.
2. Gerber Baby Girl’s Variety Onesies
Onesies can be worn solo and make for a completely adorable outfit. Unfortunately babies are prone to spit up, throw up and have explosive poops that completely destroy said outfit, but with Gerber’s sets of cotton onesies for girls, at least you can keep the day’s theme alive from one change of clothes to the next. Each pack features five bodysuits centered around one theme from hearts and owls to teddy bears and more. Sizes range from newborn to 12 months, and each piece features bottom snap closures for changing convenience and ribbed leg openings for comfort.
3. Simple Joys by Carter’s Baby Girl’s Short-Sleeve Bodysuit
Among the list of best onesies for girls, Simple Joys by Carter’s deserves an honorable mention. While the bodysuits are made in a variety of fabrics based on size and color, a ton are made of 100 percent cotton (just make sure to read the label to confirm one way or another). They’re tag-free so your little one won’t be bothered with an itch, feature snap closures for quick and easy changes, and are also designed with expandable necklines so they can grow alongside your child. Sizes range from preemie to 24 months, and the sets come in eight varieties, like black and white, pink/gray/mint and solids.
