The Parenting Hack many of us had no idea exists!

I’m sure that I can’t be the only one who had no idea what the real purpose of the little fold back envelopes at the top of baby onesies and suits were really for…..

Like most parents, I assumed they were there to provide a little extra room to pull over bub’s head – how wrong I (and many of us!) were…..

These ingenious pieces of extra fabric are in fact there to help you easily remove the suit from your baby in the event of a nappy explosion aka poonami – genius!

What parenting hacks do you wish you had known about earlier?


Lauren founded her website Create Bake Make as a way to justify the ridiculous amount of baking she loves to do. She has a super sweet tooth and enjoying a slice of cake (or two) is one of her guilty indulgences. As a Mum of two little boys, when she isn't creating fun activities for the kids or breaking up arguments over toy trucks and cars, you will find her in the kitchen baking up a storm - or hiding in the pantry with the latest cooking magazine and a hot cup of coffee!

    I also find that style hard to get over a baby’s head. The neck should be over-lapped at the shoulder seams not stitched across. Looks are decieving in that respect which is a shame.
    Having said that I love the design on the front of it, and the long sleeves.
    Babies tend to get the shoulders and arms uncovered once they start to move about, even more so when they start rolling over / sleeping on their sides
