Re: PJ's and wool

DD wears a sbish snapless with Disana soaker over it for night, so she has quite the bum for night time! Hanna Andersen and Children's Place cotton footless zip up pjs work fine over them for her. Carters fleece pj's fit too.

My son likes to sleep super warm but won't tolerate blankets or sleep sacks. Often it works to size up in cotton pj's (the Gap ones fit, as do Walmarts organic), and size up in Carter's fleece sleepers.

If that doesn't work we do a cotton T and a long sleeved shirt, cotton pants and fleece sweatpants, and tuck a shirt into the outer pants.

Then I add a pair of my wool socks, pulled up over his thighs. Looks ridiculous but it works! 3 layers over the legs and torso, 2 on feet.

I also recommend Carter's footed fleece sleepers in a size up. We used knit wool and they always worked great for us

Re: PJ's and wool

We use longies made of upcycled sweaters. They are awesomely warm, then a warm shirt, and that's it.

You can make leg warmers super easy. It's a new sew project if you want it to be. Just go buy women's long knee socks, and cut off the foot part. They are "knit" so will not ravel or fray, they will curl a bit but that's about it. If you sew, or have a sewing machine. Then you can get fancy, and after you cut the foot off the sock, you can then just cut the toe part off the foot part, then fold the toe-less foot part in half, and attach the cut parts (the cut parts will be together at this point on one end, and the fold on the other end), and sew that to the cut part of the leg part of the sock, and you have "cuffs" on your leg warmers and it adds about 2 to 3 inches of length for super tall baby legs if needed. But, like I said even if you don't sew, you don't have to have the cuffs, and can just leave them curled at the bottoms and it's cheap and easy leg warmers, you can easily DIY!
