So I'm beginning to wonder if what I looking for actually exists or if I have to either give up or sew it myself. This Unicorn of a clothing item is a side snap tee shirt, plain, preferably in organic cotton. I've found a few options, some not organic and lacking in quality, which will probably be the option of last resort before sewing, right now I can't even conceive of enough energy to sew 3 dozen tee shirts. Others are not pain, I hate the patterns and decorations on baby clothes so I just want some pain ones that I can dye. Or they are ridiculously expensive like 30+dollars a shirt which is more for designer brand than anything. Has anyone seen what I quest for or should I just figure out another option?

Yep like that except white or natural, and in cotton, so that I can dye it.

Google organic cotton baby kimono white

Most of the ones I saw had ties rather than press studs though. And nothing under $16. Although I think, for organic, that's probably about as good as it gets.

Thanks everybody, I think I'm gonna wait for a while and see if Burts bees starts carrying them again, if not I'll make a choice sooner to the time it's to need them. It's not like there's any chance of the baby going nakie, my mom's gone a little overboard, not that I don't appreciate the thought but wow I had no idea how far some people can take this baby thing.
On a slightly related note how essential is it that newborns wear long pants and sleeves all the time, I'm due in August and that is frequently a disgustingly hot time of year around here, it might be cool because of ac but it's still pretty awful and I can't understand the idea of bundling up for that if I'd rather be naked in a tub of ice.

Not essential at all. Dress them for the conditions. A general rule of thumb for newborns is one more light layer than you are comfortably wearing yourself. But, that said, I had a summer baby as well and she mostly wore short-sleeved body suits during the day and pyjama suits at night. Sometimes newborns have cold feet too, so you can do a short suit and socks.

I only ever do suits, never shirts and pants because I *hate* the constant riding up and readjustment. Plenty of people on here use shirts and gowns though. It's just a matter of preference.
