A premature baby sleepsuit is a one-piece item of baby clothing with long sleeves and legs, and they can be footed or footless. A sleepsuit for older children and adults is typically called a onesie.
A premature baby sleepsuit is typically made from cotton and closed with snaps although they may also be made from fleece/velour or closed with zips (like our Little Lumps range). The feet are often enclosed, but they may be footless. Sometimes built in scratch mitts are also part of the sleepsuit design.
