Onesies and listing online
« on: November 05, 2015, 04:16:52 AM »
Just came across this and didn't know it, so thought I'd share in case others didn't know.  The common term for a one-piece baby outfit is "onesie".  That term is trademarked by Gerber.  If you have such outfits that are not Gerber brand, be sure to not list them using that term.

I don't have any to list (and haven't had) but didn't know it was a trademark. I've heard it used generically so often that I thought it was simply a common term for such outfits.

Thanks for the info.
Similar situation word "Turbie"..as in Turbie Twist®
I learned that about 5 years ago...the hard way.
I had no idea that the word "onsie" was trademarked.
Never too old to learn something new.

One piece outfit, I would suspect, is an acceptable generic term.

I actually new that onesie was trademark
We use the words bodysuit and creeper

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why we call it the present!
