View Full Version : Footed or footless sleep/play suits for a recent walker?
09-16-2005, 06:48 AM
My baby has been walking for a few months now; she walks very well but still occasionally trips up. Her summer pajamas/loungewear haven't hindered her movement at all, but now the weather is getting cooler. My question is: should we put her in one-piece suits that have feet, or would it be better to use the footless ones and have her wear socks when necessary?

I have a babe who isn't walking yet, but pulls up, and an older ds. With ds, we used socks/soft shoes and sleepers w/out feet. But he runs super-hot and slept with us so he wasn't ever really cold. For dd, I'll do both cotton sleepers w/feet (L.L. Bean has ones w/grippies on bottom) and some without.

My DD sleeps barefoot, because she also runs a bit hot. But with cooler weather, I don't feel right about leaving her feet uncovered. She has never really used a blanket, so I'm not sure how that would work now. I'm torn between footed suits (we have one that's a little long, and I'm afraid that could trip her up) or footless suits with socks (which she might just pull off). I should add that I often let her walk around in her jammies for awhile after she wakes up. Is there any other option I've overlooked?

My DS did footed one piece jammies, we used cotton in the spring and will use them again as it gets cooler (if they fit :) and then will go to the fleece jammies for winter. He won't keep socks on a night so we have to use the footed sleepers.
He gets breakfast all over his jammies so we go into regular clothes right after breakfast, and he wears nonskid socks if the floors feel cold, otherwise he is always barefoot until we go outside.

When ds was younger, he had a Kushies sleeper that had feet that folded up over. So you could choose whether you want her to be covered while she sleeps and/or uncovered or in soft shoes/socks for just hanging out in jammies playing.

I kinda think it depends on what kind of floors you have. DD had footed sleepers, but even with the grippers on the bottoms, she had some falls because they were too slippery. That was just my experience.
