Unable to find the item she was looking for, a Lakewood mother of a special needs child created it

When Mrs. Shevi Nachum’s 5-year-old special needs daughter Mari grew out of her onesie, she searched for one that would fit her – but was unsuccessful in finding one. So she decided to create the product and in the process help other parents of special needs children.

“When Mari began growing out of her onesie undershirts, I began looking for larger sizes and I simply couldn’t find what I was looking for!” said Mrs. Nachum. “I still wanted an undershirt with snaps because she isn’t toilet trained and she is g-tube fed, and yet most companies don’t make onesies past a size 3.”

So she got to work.

“I teamed up with June Aboksis of Junees clothing, an incredible friend to the special needs community, and together we created the MARI undershirt.”

The item comes in three adorable styles, and are available in sizes 4-12.

“I am hoping other children can benefit from this as much as mine has!” says Mrs. Nachum.

  1. As a mother of a special needs child like Mari, I also looked for onesies for my 5 year old, gtube fed, untrained child. They don’t exist, but now they do! This is a huge service to a very special clientele who can use these. Now we need to team up with a diaper company to make cute designs for bigger kids who no longer fit into the baby sizes.
