Pajamas

As you might guess, its hot in Tucson. So, Teagan's nighttime garb has consisted of a diaper (and maybe a shirt) since, oh, about March. Fall decided to arrive yesterday (its leaving again by this weekend but I'm sure it'll be back) so that's got me thinking about her "winter" wardrobe (I say "winter" because 45 degrees doesn't count as winter IMO).

What do you put your kiddos in for bedtime? We change the occasional diaper at night so I don't want something super complicated (like with buttons). What exists for kids this age?

I'm not much help because it's starting to get cold here, but when it's below 20degrees(68 ) at night I put thin pajamas on him, and below 10degrees(50) I put warm fuzzy ones on him. Anything above 20 he sleeps in a onesie.

The $5 Faded Glory Walmart PJ sets. The pants stretch well over Aiden's fluffy butt (though the diaper peeks out the top lol). Right now Aiden's sets are all t-shirts and long pants. I'm wondering if they'll put out long sleeve versions in stores soon. I've seen long sleeve sets at JC Penny's but they all have cartoon characters on them which I don't like.

ATM its about 50 at night and he's in one of these (sleep suite):

One of these (vest):

And a 2.5 tog one of these (sleeping bag):

If it's any colder he will be in a long sleeved vest and if it's colder still he'll be in a fleecy sleep suite Smile

Chloe sleeps in pj's from walmart and target. I think I also got some at carters. We keep the apartment really cold so I usually do long sleeved shirts and pants. but she also has short sleeved shirts and shorts. Walmart usually does a good sale on black friday for pj's but they are usually cartoon ones. But they are super cheep so I don't care.. plus the kids like them.. well chloe could care less but Trevor does. Smile

We also keep the house cold at night, so Evan sleeps in footed pjs (some do have buttons). Although most of what we have comes with zippers too. The Wal Mart sets are great too, we usually get those 1-2 sizes bigger than the carter's sizes. Their sizing seems a bit different. Carter's also has 2 piece pjs that are long or short sleeves. He usually has that and a fleece blanket with him.

Delaney wears fleece Carter's, footed pajamas to bed now that it's raining and getting colder. Our room isn't very warm.....

When it was nice....I would just put her in a onsie @ night. Never just her diaper...she'd for sure pull it off. Lol

I reserve snapped diaper covers for night time. Velcro covers come off pretty much immediately!

Do they make little night gowns for this age? I think that would be pretty easy to deal with for diaper changes and would probably be warm enough for Tucson. Won't she slip all around on the floor with footed PJs?

Aiden has figured out velcro covers recently! If he's in a velcro cover over a fitted at night, he gets PJ bottoms (which works for now). If he's in a snap pocket diaper at night, he sleeps in just a t-shirt.
Though I wonder if socks, pants, and a long sleeve PJ shirt will be enough when I visit home this winter. Beee

Once the size hits 12 months, they put the little "grippers" on the feet. We have tile in the kitchen, and don't have any problem at all with Evan slipping. It's not hard grippers or anything to be uncomfortable.

We still put Odin in a sleep sack or swaddle blanket at night. Cotten jersery when warm and fleece when cold. He wears a short or long sleeve shirt under depending on the weather. I woiuld think you could get night gowns at this age. We have some 12m flannel PJ's that are button top with pull on pants from when DS1 was about this age as well as the reg. cotten jersey ones from carters. I think carters starts making those 2 piece numbers at the 12m size.

Ronin is in a singlet and nappy (ok I'm lazy a lot so often just a nappy). When it was cold (and bear in mind my definition of cold is very different to most) he was long pjs. We had two pairs of flannette ones and two long sleeved and pants cotton ones. I found them easy enough for nappy changes. He also had some footed sleepers but they got too dirty with crawling.

Either: A footed sleeper OR a onsie and a Halo sleep sack. Short sleeve onsie if warm, long sleeve if colder. Love the sleep sacks, they zip down the front making it very easy to change him w/o taking it off or even unzipping it all the way. And they make thinner cotton sleep sacks and fleece ones, so I use whatever depending on the temp.
