The Two Primary Lapneck Shirt Style Purposes:
1. It provides stretch in the neck hole, so you can easily dress baby. Babies have large heads (in proportion to the rest of their body), and this way the neck hole can stretch but still look nice in proportion to their skinny necks.
2. When baby has a blowout, you can stretch the lapneck over the baby’s shoulders and pull the mess down, opposed to pulling all the crap (no pun intended) up over his head!
Why, oh why, didn’t I know about this earlier? For all these years, I’ve been painstakingly pulling poopie onesies up and over my baby’s neck, always resulting in a lot of dry heaving and impromptu baby bathes. I tell you what, I learn something new every single day. But I wish I had known about this little trick 8 years ago.
What is the Little Dipper?
A fixture of the northern sky, the Big and Little Dippers (also known as Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, Little Bear and Big Bear) swing around the north star Polaris like riders on a Ferris wheel. They go full circle around Polaris once a day – or once every 23 hours and 56 minutes. If you live at temperate latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, simply look northward and chances are that you’ll see the Big Dipper in your nighttime sky. It looks just like its namesake. Once you’ve found the Big Dipper, it’s only a hop, skip and jump to Polaris and the Little Dipper. Follow the links below to learn more about the Big and Little Dippers.
