My dd just turned 1 and she is short maybe 28" and 22#. I'm not sure what her length is now exactly, but she is outgrowing the 6-12 mo clothes but 12-18 mo is much too long. Does anyone know of good brands for short, but normal weight kids? Also, why can't I find cotton pj's with feet for 12 month size that aren't $20 plus a pair? Why does carters switch to poly mix 2 piece pj's that don't feel nice at all?!

When I did winter clothes shopping the end of last summer, my DD was still a few months old, (she was 6 months last December) but I thought she was getting tall and so instead of buying 6-9 mon clothes for a 6 mo baby, wanted to buy one size up, which meant 12 or 12-18 months (there is no such thing as 9-12 months size, I guess). It turned out that for the whole winter all those 12 months clothes seemed baggy and long. She is now 15 months, 32" + but a little over 21# so she's very tall and very skinny. Recently it's getting really cool and I had to put long-sleeved shirts on her, and she could fit these 12 months clothes from last winter easily. Not bad!

I came to this forum for the first time, to ask exactly the same question! I mean babies' PJ's in general, it's really hard to find nice ones at all (and reasonally priced). I bought one pack of PJ's at GAP outlet at about $7 (half priced), which was cute but the cotton was too stretchy, hard to put them on.
My DD wore those Carter's poly mix ones... I think it is supposed to be warmer, but I'm with you, they don't feel nice on babies' skin at all. My DD has very sensitive skin and easily gets irritated by those rough-on-your-skin materials. I think I put 100% cotton T-shirt(onesies) first, then those poly mix sleeper on her.
Anyway I would appreciate ANY info on good PJ's which are reasonably priced (I personally prefer separates, not the sleepers with feet-- I don't like all those snaps... pain in the neck to change diapers!).
