How long do/did you dress your baby in baby gros during the day before it became unreasonable?

Ok I know it's not unreasonable I was just trying to fit it in the titled section that I have done!!

When shall I dress my 7 week old in proper day clothes?

DS wore babygrows in the day until just over 1, when he started walking it was no longer practical. Sometimes trousers and jumper before then, but waist bands did look very uncomfortable on him. I think he's an odd shape though! Apart from the babygrows, anything with poppers between legs won't stay popped. Shame as I loved the dungaree style clothed we gad for DD but they just didn't work on him

My DC were dressed in day clothes from day 1. The clothes were soft cotton trousers and tops etc.
It is down to personal choice, though I think once they are crawling they need something thicker than a baby grow between the knee and the floor.

My 3 month old is very long, so 3-6month babygrows don't fit him already. Also, he's sick after every feed so it's easier to put him in t shirt and jeans/tracksuit bottoms and just change his top where necessary.
All the jeans he has a quite soft. I must admit, I love seeing him in dungarees most, they're unbelievablly cute. I'm making the most of it, because once he's mobile, he'll be dressed in whatever is the most long lasting.

My nearly 11 month old dd is currently wearing a babygro and pretty much has one on when she is indoors, invariably with the feet tucked up or a footless one because she is standing and I've read barefoot is better for development.

Since she was about 10 weeks its been clothes when we go out, babygros indoors so she is comfy playing. I always think it is whatever you are comfortable with.

My LO was born in April and wore clothes in the day and baby grows in the night as they're pj's (imo) we don't go around in our pj's all day so why should he (was my mentality lol)

He never had any baby grows from around 6 months their comes a time when it doesn't look right (imo) and that was it

My LO also didn't do onsies and footsie pj's after 3-6 months (he's 21 months now and will cry and take them off if you attempt to put trousers with feet on him). 12-18 babygrows just look odd haha just do socks so much easier

My dd wore them until about 9 months,I bought gorgeous, outdoor ones that had matching bib and jackets from boots. he hated anything with a waist band so they were ideal for her.

My DC's stayed in babygros until about 8 months . Then they wore 'proper' clothes until they discovered onesies , and now we're back where we started . They're now 7, 9, 14, 16 and 18 .
