Being a mum of 2, I know just how quickly little babies grow out of their clothes! That's why I designed this lovely baby bodysuit with growing in mind. The sleeves are extra long, with fold-over cuffs. I've added some extra length to the body and an extra row of snapper buttons to the bottom, so the length is adjustable.
