Mastering dressing a baby without moving her fingers is no small feat, but this quadriplegic mom has it figured out.

Women in her community had a great innovation that made a big difference. “They put velcro instead of snaps,” Meg explains. This allows meg to manage securing the clothing more easily than having to close the snaps.

Meg methodically demonstrates removing pajamas and putting her little infant in a onesie, followed by an adorable pair of purple ruffled pants. Lastly, she adds on the socks. Meg’s daughter doesn’t make it easy for her, kicking her little feet as infants do. The whole process takes just over 14 minutes, but Meg gives a great demonstration in this short video.
