Dear 100 Hour Board,
When dressing a baby, I put on the onesie, and then the pants. I have some friends who snap the bottom of the onesie over the pants, so that the onesie is essentially over the pants. I'm completely puzzled about it. Am I crazy? Is that how you dress a baby? I'm too weirded out to ask one of the moms why they do it- so, why do they do it?

I've never even considered doing it that way, and I can't recall seeing it either. After looking over a couple of baby forums, I conclude that people do it for any of the following reasons:
- it keeps the pants on
- it helps the pants not twist
- there are cute decorations on the bum of the onesie
- to go for that "Superman" look
- they just think it's cute
- they are ridiculously sleep-deprived and unable to competently dress a baby
HA! I've done that multiple times to each of my kids, mostly because I forget about the onesie until I pick the kid up and see it dangling there.. Since it's hard enough to get pants on a wiggly baby once, I've resorted to just snapping the onesie over the pants and not caring.
Plus, it makes them look like little baby super heroes.

I snap onesies over tights, but not over pants. I don't think you're crazy, but your friends might.
