Well my little girl is long past wearing baby clothes and body suits, but today years after I needed this piece of information I have just found out what those little gusset like folds on the shoulders of baby tops and body suits, are really there for. I think of the times when my daughter presented me with a body suit filled with an unwanted present, or when more food was on her clothes than what had gone in her mouth. Or then there were the times when she just did not want to get dressed and she certainly didn’t want things going over her head. So if by sharing the little piece of knowledge that I gained today, makes life easier for another Mum or Dad I will be super happy. Fancy not knowing that those little gusset like flaps are so that you can open the neck of the item wide enough to take the arms out and remove the clothing down the body. I truly hope I was not the only mum that didn’t know this, I just thought they made my life easier taking the item off over her head.
