When Emma was younger we used to put her in a "tater sack" zip up thing to keep her warm. But now she gets all twisted up in it and wakes up. So she sleeps in her footed one piece jammies but when I check on her she is out of her blankets and all balled up and cold. It kills me to think she was cold and not covered and warm. How do you guys keep your babies at this age warm?

Elijah is still co-sleeping with us, so he stays warm. Once our kiddies sleep alone, we get the footed pj's with long sleeves... the ones with the zipper. There are ones with thicker material to stay warm.

Footed pjs, but find that's not enough for her. She wakes up in the night with her blankets off cold quite a bit.. Sometimes ill bring her in bed with us and she stays toasty that way, I just can't get a good night sleep that way usually. Sorry I'm not of help

Have you tried the really thick ones?

Luyando sleeps in 2 footed jammies. Really, she has a cotton onesie underneath, a light cotton footed jammies and then a bigger-sized flannel footed jammies on top of that. With dd1, I did just the onesie and flannel footed jammies and she had a cold continually through the winter. Luyando had rarely had a cold unless it's teething related so I think our bundling up helped. Now that Spring is coming (knock on wood) we'll probably do just onesies and a footed jammies and then eventually just her cotton jammies. She actually now started staying under her comforter so most times she is covered by her comforter still in the morning.

Fleece footed jammies for my girl. It's not a perfect solution but they do okay. She kicks her blankets off for sure during the night. It breaks my heart if her little feet are cold in the morning when I change her.

Over the winter, we doubled up on PJs. She would wear a two piece long sleeve/pant combo, and then put a fleece sleeper over it. We kept the house at 68-70, and she never stays under the covers, so we figured this would keep her warm. Now that it's getting warmer out (woohoo!!) we can probably ditch the 2 piece PJs underneath.

Footed pjs here, too. Also before DH and I go to bed we re-cover them with blankets since they have usually kicked them off by then. Thankfully it is warming up...last night they slept in short-sleeved onesies and pants!

I found some really thick pjs and they seem to be working a little better... In the summer DH loves to turn down the air so its absolutely freezing, so ill probably use these even when it warms up more...

My husband also like the house like a meat locker in the summer. I will have to keep her bundled still for sure. The last few nights when I check on Emma before I flop into bed I noticed she is finally keeping herself covered up with her blankets. She is so cute all snuggled up in her baby soft blankets.

Fleece footed jammies, we keep his room at 70 to sleep in, he runs pretty hot though. When I put a blanket on him, he just ends up snuggling it instead.
