Well, since we have central air, I think we'll be using long sleeve body suits or maybe even the sleeping bag robe things. I have been trying to pick some up as I see them on out of season clearance.

Mostly gowns but some onesies and sleepers and a sleep sack or baby will be swaddled.

DD had to be swaddled, so probably just a onesie and the swaddling blanket. We really liked the summer infant swaddler, too, but I've never tried the small size of those.

My arms. Seriously I was never able to get my other two sleeping well in a crib. I generally slept in an oversized chair with them. Early on I promised I would do it different this time.

Summer in Maui...not much! We do not have AC & depend on trade winds so im guessing onesies for now. We used sleeper gowns with DS as well, and really liked those for at night...so I'll have a few on hand just in case.

onesies and light footie sleepers if we install the air conditioner in her room
DS hated swaddling and the sleep sack so we'll probably just skip that

Summer in Texas is brutal, even with A/C. With my DD, who was also a summer baby, we just did onesies and swaddled her in a blanket as a newborn. When she got tired of being swaddled, we would use very thin footed sleepers.

We have AC but our upstairs gets hot in the summer. My son was born in July and he only slept in a onesie and was swaddled. Although he hated having his arms in there, so it was just his torso and legs. Sometimes for naps he was just in a diaper and semi-swaddled.

Yes, we use a/c in the summer as well, so she will probably wear long sleeve sleepers, the zip up kind with footies, or long sleeve onesies with a sleep sack. I remember HATING the sleepers with snaps, zippers were so much easier!!!

We used the halo sleep sacks a lot with Connor as well, LOVED them! I think we tried the swaddle one, but he hated being swaddled. We used the wearable blanket ones!

I have some good cotton sleepers and a muslin sleep sack that worked great on my last summer baby although the muslin sleep sack is pretty girly... hmmm.

I like cotton sleep sacks with a cloth diaper and long sleeve shirt for bedsharing. I don't like to swaddle the baby while they are next to me, it is too hot and I like them to have freedom of motion. But if I put them in the cosleeper alone, I definitely swaddle. It won't be that hot here in foggy NorCal though. Sometimes June is colder than March here!

Our room is like a huge studio loft at in laws house and if the upstairs a/c isn't fixed by June baby boy will be sleeping in just a diaper. Both alan And I have to sleep with an industrial fan on even when temps outside are in low 30s

It doesn't get hot here in Seattle until August. I do recall a heat wave when DD was a couple months old and I couldn't swaddle her because it was too hot. Those were some brutal nights. Ugh, I hate summer!

I have a bunch of clothes from when dd was a baby, but she was born in February. I hope I can still use some of the long sleeved sleepers since she will be in our room with the ac on. I also got some gowns for her. I will have to get a few wearable blankets.
