Over the last two decades, specific dates in September have been in the top 5 for birthdays. This got me thinking about babies and baby showers. The focus of this post therefore will be onesies, as these are practical and easy to wear. There are many stylish and fun options (100+) from black owned brands. See the company links below for more information.
