So for you mommas with older kids, what do you use to layer under tshirts after baby has grown out of onesies? Right now, I use long-sleeve onesies a lot to layer under tshirts. That way I can get multiple seasons out of the tshirts, and not be as concerned about what size the shirts are when I buy them (I like to buy on clearance a season ahead if possible!). If I watch the sales and coupon codes, I can get a set of onesies for under $8 or $10.
What can I get in the toddler sizes that look good, and are affordable, for layering? I've looked at some thermal shirts at some stores, but the prices are nowhere near what I could get with the onesies! I'm also considering hitting up the thrift stores at some point to see what they have there. The Goodwill by me is 50% off every Saturday!
Now that Brynlee is out of onesies (and has been for a while minus the rare occasion that like today where she got a new outfit from someone so she is wearing it), she just wears light long sleeve shirts with a sweater/hoodie/jacket/coat....whichever is needed.
Have you checked Wal-Mart? They have solid colored long sleeve shirts for rather inexpensive. You could always layer with those.
E is still in 18-month clothes, and I will probably buy 24-month onesies if it's still cool when he moves up to the next size. DH wears undershirts every day, even under tshirts in the heat of summer! So I guess that's why we do the same thing for E. He wears a onesie (even a short-sleeved onesie under a long-sleeved tshirt) all the time. The only exception was the summer -- we just put him in tshirts then.
Perhaps I'll get away from the layered look when we get into toddler sizes this fall. Or look at Wal-Mart, thanks for the suggestion Mandy. We don't go into Wal-Mart too often.. We bought his pajamas there when he was a newborn through till 3 or 6 months. It is sooo hard to find anything in Wal-Mart and ours never has enough lanes open. I don't ever remember seeing plain tshirts at Target, so perhaps I will need to check Wal-Mart out!
