Thread: Bedtime attire when nursing to sleep

    Default Bedtime attire when nursing to sleep

    What do your baby wear to bed if you nurse him/her to bed? DD was swaddled and I could nurse her to sleep. I've been using a sleepsack now on her since she outgrew her swaddle but the sack gets in the way, up by her mouth. Plus comforting afterwards is a pain because it gets all bunched up.

    At this point, I want to continue to nurse by 8 week old to sleep at bedtime (when possible), and I want an easier bedtime attire for her. I can't easily do so with the sack. Right now, she wears, thin pajamas and a microfleece sleepsack. Thanks!!

    I just put my baby in a one-piece cotton footed pj with a cotton onesie under the pj.

    Since it's wintertime, I am now putting my LO to bed in a thicker blanket sleeper, which are fleece material... you know the little feet pajamas that have one long zipper up the front? That way if she kicks her blanket off during the night (she's 14 months) she's still nice and warm and her feet stay covered. I recently found a 2-pack of nice tagless pajamas at Target for my LO.

    This is what we always did, too.

    Same with us, we put on a onesie and footed sleeper, never use blankets or sleep sacks.
    You could throw on booties and a hat if you find you LO is a bit chiily.
