Do your LOs sleep with draw string soakers?

I don't know why I recently became obsessed with this. Perhaps because my dd's lastest craze is taking all the drawstrings off her soakers/longies. Or perhaps because a few days ago she got into my yarn supply and managed to wrap a few yards of it around her neck so tightly her father had to cut it off.

But I was wondering, do you let your LOs sleep with drawstring longies/shorties? I was loving wool at nighttime, but now if they have drawstrings, I wont put them on her to sleep.

No. When they were little it bothered me much less, but now that are toddlers (in every sense of the word!), I am very fearful of a strangulation accident.

I always have. If it bothers you just get the wahm to make it where they tie in the back I do that anyways since dd use to pull the strings out and make a mess out of the string.

Oh thats a good idea, I could prob just sew them on. That would solve my lost drawstring problems.

It hasn't been an issue for us DS unties them but hasn't ever managed to pull it out. Try a curly purly waist band though--no drawstring needed.

No. I prefer longies / shorties with elastic waists. I have a few but they are not for sleeping. It's too dangerous. Period.

I had to look it up, but it does look like a great one. Actually, my dd does have a soaker thats similar, I wonder if its the same pattern. it doesn't seem that purewool would do well as a curly purly though.

I double knot them tightly. I may start using a warning/disclaimer when I send out my soakers to customers.

I don't have any wool yet, but here's what I like to do with any drawstrings. Put a seam in the middle of the back so that it can't be pulled out, but can still be gathered for a good fit. I'm getting ready to start knitting my first longies and I'll be securing the drawstring definantly! HTH
