I just received my completed Nino today, done by the very talented
I’m out right now but I will post photos later. He’s adorable! She truly did a wonderful job on him.
The point of this post is to warn anyone who has a Nino, to be aware of the type of clothing you are dressing him in.
I had tried to dress him in a 0-3 sized onesie, but it wouldn’t fit over his head.
I just went thrift shopping for some clothes for him and made sure that I got items that snapped or zippered; instead of ones that had to be pulled over his head.
FYI my son has a big head so I learned some tricks. Onesies can be put on from the feet upwards. The flaps on the shoulders make them so they can stretch over the shoulders. As for T-shirts…button up or zip up is absolutely the way to go. You’re right, some shirts won’t fit over fat heads. But onesies don’t have to. Slide them on like pants.
Thank you for the suggestion to put the onesies on like pants but this boy is a chunk
and I don’t think it would work that way either.

You are right put them on feet first. It works and you don’t have to get frustrated LOL I have a Nino and that does work for him.

I find that you can put a onsie on him no problem feet first.
Perhaps clothing brand makes a difference?
Yep. It works. My son was a chunk too. A big headed chunk.
Thanks for the heads up! I can’t wait to get my Nino done. Looking forward to seeing pics of yours!!
He’s absolutely handsome! I’ll post photos soon.
