English term or phrase: baby grows
"Grows" used as a noun here in a UK English brochure for baby clothing. Does it refer to "sleepwear" only? How would it be expressed in US EN? Thank you.

onesie
Explanation:
It's usually 'babygro', at least in my experience. Anyway, it's the equivalent of a onesie or bodysuit in the US, and no, it's not just for sleeping in.

agree  Charles Davis: "Babygro" common term in UK. Had never of "onesies" (also a trademark used generically, I see), but evidently standard in US. (Wikipedia entry is "infant bodysuit". Can you imagine saying "pass me the infant bodysuit"?)
