Nothing clears a room of baby-adoring adults faster than a dirty nappy. “Not it!”
If only they knew how easy Lala’s Pequeños knottie sleeper makes things.
The extra-long unisex nightgown has two strips that tie into a knot to keep baby’s toes from catching a chill. When it’s time for a clean diaper, just untie, do your work, and retie.
Made from bamboo and hemp, with easy-on/easy-off necklines, the all-natural sleepers are perfect for newborns whose primary responsibilities include snoozing, eating, and pooping. Parents who find themselves on diaper duty around the clock won’t turn their noses up at them either.
Change is good.
