However, it can be a bit expensive to purchase a onesie that is printed or stitched for every month of baby's first year. I have seen boutique type shops sell them for $50 and up! Not to mention in baby clothing, sizing can vary and these onesies might not fit when your child reaches that particular month.
The monthly onesie sticker is a more affordable option, especially for moms on a budget. I was contacted by Buddha Bellies to do a review of their onesie stickers. And I must say, I regret not having these right when baby girl was born!
About Buddha Bellies:
Buddha Bellies' Etsy shop opened in 2011 by mother and daughter, Lori and Lauren. We're just two
Etsy junkies from Texas who find joy in combining our taste in design with products for little people. Starting a
shop together has proven to be a great way to spend time together and foster our creative and entrepreneurial
More than just a business or a creative outlet, Buddha Bellies was created for a purpose. 10% of our profits go
to help fight the battle against human trafficking. It is an ugly problem in our world that became familiar to me
(Lori) several years ago after meeting a Romanian woman named Iana. She is a compassionate and brave
woman who risks her life running a safe house for Eastern European girls who have been trafficked. Ever
since meeting her, I've been passionate about doing something to help. While our contributions will only be
a small way of helping, I believe every little bit makes a difference.
We hope you enjoy creating memories with our monthly onesie stickers as much as we enjoy making them
Send us a pic of your munchkin modeling our onesie stickers and we'll post it in our shop for the world to
Ooo and Ahhh over.

Buddha Bellies has a great selection of stickers for boys and girls as well as gender-neutral. I wish I had known about their Just Born stickers too! Their shop also offers pregnancy, first holiday, big/little sister, and stickers for baby's 2nd year. (A whole set is only $8!)
I used this princess sticker for baby girl's 1st Birthday outfit. I'm biased, but I think she looks adorable! The sticker perfectly matched the colors in the tutu. Her grandparents loved it and I have had many compliments from friends as well!
(Baby girl was not very happy in this next photo because I made her wear her headband)
You should know that these are intended for photo opportunities, not all day wear, and are not made to stand up to an active baby. But they are on waterproof and "drool proof" paper so the colors do not bleed. I love the easy peel and stick convenience (and cost-effectiveness) and can't wait to use my 2nd year stickers!
Where to Buy:
You can purchase stickers online through the Buddha Bellies Etsy shop. You can also keep up to date on their latest designs on the Buddha Bellies Facebook page.
