A baby boy sleepsuit is a one-piece item of baby clothing with long sleeves and legs, and they can be footed or footless with cuffs. A sleepsuit for older boys and men is normally called a onesie.
A baby sleepsuit is typically made from cotton and closed with poppers (otherwise known as snaps), although they may also be made from fleece (velour) or closed with a zip. Baby's little feet are often enclosed, but they may be footless (so little socks will be needed for the baby boy too). Sometimes scratch mitts are integrated into the baby boy sleepsuit. If it doesn't have scratch mitts built in then you'll want to buy some baby scratch mitts too.
