The Disney Cuddly Bodysuit is the only infant bodysuit made of Disney Huggable Soft 100% Cotton and features snaps that grow with baby, outfitting baby with comfort and style through the first magical year. Disney’s research found that infant bodysuits are a wardrobe staple for baby, with the average mom purchasing more than 35 bodysuits in the first year alone. The Disney Cuddly Bodysuit, however, is an infant bodysuit that grows with your baby, as the design features two rows of snaps for an inch of longer wear. As babies typically grow in length fastest, the second row of snaps provides both comfort for baby and convenience for mom.
