Crass Onesies

See those boobs? They're not hers. | Creepy Onesies | The Stir

I have a theory about all those cutsey baby onesies with the sayings on them. It's the only thing keeping us sane until that baby starts talking. Wait, have you gone through the "I'm so desperate for this baby to talk that I'll sit here for an hour saying Mama like an idiot" stage yet? You will. In the meantime, there are plenty of onesies out there that will let you say anything you want for your baby.

In fact, the whole "baby onesie" field has gotten cluttered with people saying a little too much for babies. The creepy onesies people actually expect you to put on a baby have gotten out of control.

I'm talking the onesies with curse words, the onesies with sexual references, and worse! You wouldn't believe the kind of sayings people will plaster across a baby's chest. I'm hoping (dear God) that they won't actually teach their kids to say them later, but who knows .... Check 'em out.

Which ones do you find offensive? Would you put any of them on your baby?

So, what do you think of crass onesies? Funny? Inappropriate? Would you or have you put one on your baby?

I've seen ones that I think are funny...but moreso in a "ha that picture/concept makes me laugh"...as a concept. Its not like i would ever put one on my kid and would probably raise an eyebrow if someone else did.

I think there are some middle of the road ones/maybe slightly edgy that i would consider for a laugh, under the right circumstances.

The mommy needs a martini one isn't so bad. I'm picturing a baby in the middle of a full blown meltdown...mommy needs a martini indeed. Or i prefer gin and tonic. I could see putting that on my kid at home if someone gave it to me as a gag gift.

Wow....those were worse than I thought! The ones with curse words and sexual references REALLY rub me the wrong way. I have children that can read and I don't like it when anyone wears clothing like that!

The martini one not so bad. There have been a few I've seen before that I chuckle but would not put my kiddo in one to go out in public.

I find I can make a simple decision on a person and if I feel I want to spend time with them by things like this. If you are idiotic enough to put your kid in something that describe their penis size. I'm all set with spending my free time with you.

While not something I would put on my child, I am in general in support of free speach. People wear inaproprate clothing all the time. I would draw the line at nudity or explisite pictures.

I think most of them are ridiculous or just plain offensive. If I saw a baby wearing one of those out in public with the bad language or sexual references I'd probably look at the parent(s) like they were complete idiots.

There are some that I've seen that I do think are funny (Ex: "Daddy drinks because I cry.") But the ones like "Daddy just wanted a bj" seriously skeeve me out, and I would also be giving the parents a big old side eye if I saw them out in public. I think "cool" onesies can be fun (for the parents; the kids could care less). I had a Ramones onesie for T when he was little that I really thought was awesome. But there is a limit, and putting sexual messages or swear words on a baby's shirt crosses that line for me.

I would not think any of those shirts would be ok on an adult, so putting them on a baby skeeves me out big time (especially the one about the BJ)
My friend that has a band that performs on a regular basis just had a baby, got some funny ones, one that said "I with the band"' and one that says "I love the drummer"

"I'm with the band" would be super cute for a musician's kid.

Every time I read the title of this thread, I start singing, "Crass onesies, that funky onesie."

I do chuckle at some of them but I wouldn't put it on my kid.
