am i the only one tonight who have sent their kids to bed with no nightwear on or am i really evil in doing it? they are 3 and 6

Sparklymommy Sun 07-Jul-13 21:11:56

Mine are in pj shorts and no top (apart from dd1 who has a crop top and shorts on). It is far too hot an ds2 is like an overheated radiator in winter so this weather is really not good for him!

usualsuspect Sun 07-Jul-13 21:13:40

Why are you evil?

Surely it's what everyone does when it's hot.

BridgetBidet Sun 07-Jul-13 21:13:58

Em, they might be more comfortable with something on. Is it very hot where you are tonight? Not evil, no. A bit lazy maybe. It won't do them any harm. Have you asked them if they want to wear bedclothes or not? If they happier without then I can't see the harm.

mumof5plusazoo Sun 07-Jul-13 21:15:39

My dd's 8 & 6 have now completely stripped off! My ds's 4 & 3 and dd 1 are just in nappies. They are happy and asleep so I'm happy too.

it is still like twenty two degrees here and they were happy.

wonderingsoul Sun 07-Jul-13 21:16:52

both of mine sweat like a really sweaty thing, even in winter.

ds1 just has legging on, ds2 has short and a top. they have to sleep under the duvet but once they are asleep i go and pull it down half way because i think their over heat by morning.

i did have the windos open but the breeze blew our fish tank over que.. manic kids and a fish that i saved in time but now has a scar, hopfully he'll survive the night.

BridgetBidet Sun 07-Jul-13 21:16:52

Why do you say evil though? Are you feeling a bit down or being critical of your own mothering at the moment? I would certainly worry about someone who thought such a thing was 'evil'. I think you need to give yourself a bit of a break, of course it's not anything approaching evil.

usualsuspect Sun 07-Jul-13 21:17:08

It's not lazy, don't be so ridiculous.

IneedAyoniNickname Sun 07-Jul-13 21:17:19

Mine refuse to sleep naked, but they only have short bottoms on. I had to prise ds2s fleece blanket off him,he claims he's cold

pollywollydoodle Sun 07-Jul-13 21:17:55

confused dd is in the buff and i will be too...it's too hot for anything else

why are you evil, did they want nightclothes on and you refused hmm

What?
Mine are naked every night.
Its too bloody hot for clothes.
You bunch of nutters.

NoelHeadbands Sun 07-Jul-13 21:19:17

Fleece onesies would have been evil.

BridgetBidet Sun 07-Jul-13 21:19:20

Devonshiredumpling, it's hot and they were happy so of course you were not even the remotest bit U let alone evil.

The 3 year old is wearing just underpants.

He is going through a phase of wanting to only wear underwear and a tshirt

bittenipples Sun 07-Jul-13 21:21:50

I'm not understanding the evilness of it either.

I need to know why this is evil?

NoelHeadbands Sun 07-Jul-13 21:22:22

I might send DS2 without his school sweatshirt on tomorrow.

I'm such a nasty bastard

usualsuspect Sun 07-Jul-13 21:24:37

Bloody hell,Noel.

That's worthy of a call to SS.

Tweasels Sun 07-Jul-13 21:27:43

Surely making your children go to bed wearing two pairs of fleece pyjamas and a winter coat would be evil.

Naked is just sensible considering the weather.

DD,s gro egg has a sad face so she's just in a nappy.

Towanda Sun 07-Jul-13 21:28:01

Mine are in undies and knickers, too hot for anything else. Definitely not evil.

HaroldLloyd Sun 07-Jul-13 21:28:09

I have to say I was expecting something a touch more outrageous when I opened this thread.

dd (3.5yo) has gone to bed wearing just a vest- one of her winter ones, and she is covered by just a single sheet.

To be fair though, she is like me and gets really hot in bed- even in winter she has a 0.5 tog duvet on her bed, and is very much of the opinion that clothing at the moment is optional.

I pick my battles and clothing isn't one of them!

IShallCallYouSquishy Sun 07-Jul-13 21:29:35

My 13.5 month old is in just a nappy and then her 1 tog sleeping bag. Her room is 27 and that's with a fan blowing.

LEMisdisappointed Sun 07-Jul-13 21:30:22

well my DD is 7 and she has her primark fleecy pjs on - she is a strange child!

OHforDUCKScake Sun 07-Jul-13 21:32:01

Evil no.

Odd for starting this thread? Yes. hmm

LouiseSmith Sun 07-Jul-13 21:32:08

My 3yr old has gone to bed in pants and a vest! To hot for anything else.

My house is cold! It sits in the shade all day. We're lucky to have a ray of light through the window to warm the place, so DS goes to bed in the same pajamas all year round, under a duvet... If he wriggles out, he's chilly when I find him sprawled in the morning. Quite handy for heatwaves, my icebox-house.

Loulybelle Sun 07-Jul-13 21:33:56

DD is 5, and will probably sleep in just knickers and a t shirt, i will be in just knickers, too hot and my sunburned back dont like clothes.

tobytoes Sun 07-Jul-13 21:34:09

My 1 year old has been naked most of the day. I have put her in in vest and usual sleep suit as the temp tends to drop at night but she has no blankets.

1Veryhungrycaterpillar Sun 07-Jul-13 21:34:55

Mine stripped off, don't see how that would make me lazy??

Loulybelle Sun 07-Jul-13 21:47:56

Infact, i still have my patio door wide open.

LST Sun 07-Jul-13 21:48:02

20 month old Ds is in just a nappy, with the window open and just a sheet. I have just been in to him spread eagled across the bed with noting covering him soaking wet. literally soaked. I have had to move him away from the wet patch so he didn't get a chill. I'm close to giving him a ice filled hot water bottle for him to cuddle grin

hahaha at lazy.. Was that a serious comment? hmm

NotYoMomma Sun 07-Jul-13 21:48:34

dd is in a nappy

MalcolmTuckersMum Sun 07-Jul-13 21:51:36

Evil? Seriously? That's some majorly fucked up thinking you've got going on there OP.

1Veryhungrycaterpillar Sun 07-Jul-13 21:51:50

A baby over heating is so serious there was a set of baby twins who died because their mum wrapped them up to much and their bedroom was stifling, maybe she worried to much about what she was 'supposed' to do instead of using common sense

SoTiredAgain Sun 07-Jul-13 21:54:57

Mine refuses to wear just vest and pants - he's in his warm cosy winter pjs but that's just him. But he doesn't like a duvet.

Sensible, not evil.

tulipflowers Sun 07-Jul-13 22:05:00

Your not evil.. App to my 9 yr, I'm being evil as I won't let him have a fan on all night ( stupid thing keeps me up all night vibrating through the floor!) if I can sleep without 1 he can to!

CloudsAndTrees Sun 07-Jul-13 22:05:11

My dc only wear pyjama bottoms in bed most nights, but we have a warm house.

Mehrida Sun 07-Jul-13 22:08:17

My 13m DS also sleeping in just a nappy. It's like a sauna here.

I'm another who doesn't get how you're evil..?

DD1 often strips down in the night - I find her naked most mornings even in the dead of winter! DD2 is naked tonight, her choice. I will probably be naked too although DH will try to take it as an invitation but no jeffing way is that happening in this heat

schooldidi Sun 07-Jul-13 22:13:42

Dd2 is 3 and wanted her fleecy Peppa pig onsie on tonight. I did not allow that and we compromised on shorts and t shirt under a duvet (which I removed as soon as she was asleep)

Not evil nor lazy. Its Farkin hot!!.

Hissy Sun 07-Jul-13 22:19:52

My monkey's in long sleeved top/trousers.

I know.

In my défense, he's allergic to his own sweat, gets red raw heat rash unless there's fabric to absorb it.

We lived in egypt for years, so way hotter than this.

Window open,fan on full tilt, water bottle, he's fine! smile

Cluffyflump Sun 07-Jul-13 22:21:25

YANBU, unless by 'night clothes' you mean bed sheets/duvet covers?

Jengnr Sun 07-Jul-13 22:21:59

My baby is just in his vest. No grow bag either.

tethersend Sun 07-Jul-13 22:22:08

There was a troll on here once who used to post exclusively about children sleeping naked, encouraging others to describe what their children (weren't) wearing at night.

Just saying- you wouldn't want to be associated with them, would you OP?

Runwayqueen Sun 07-Jul-13 22:23:41

Dd (3.1) has gone to bed in a pull up and a vest. I wanted to swap her duvet for a sheet but she was having none of that.

Evil? Definitely not! Wise move if they are comfortable

ENormaSnob Sun 07-Jul-13 22:25:59

Not sure if youre evil but you're definitely weird.

formicadinosaur Sun 07-Jul-13 22:27:32

Normal bedware here or just a light sheet.

sweetestcup Sun 07-Jul-13 22:28:33

Seriously? You think you may be EVIL for sending your kids to bed on a hot night without pjs??

Fakebook Sun 07-Jul-13 22:30:50

Yes you are the only one. You sound lazy too.

McNewPants2013 Sun 07-Jul-13 22:31:54

If you was my mum you would be evil, because its very hot in my house and I will still have pj and a 15tog quilt.

QuinionsRainbow Mon 08-Jul-13 12:13:11

Not at all evil!

Flobbadobs Mon 08-Jul-13 12:16:36

Were you reading the DM around the Mick Philpott trial? They made a huge deal out of the fact that some of the children weren't wearing any nightwear...
None of mine wore anything other than nappy/undies last night and at some point DS stripped off completely, I wouldn't worry.

ThreeMusketeers Mon 08-Jul-13 12:18:14

How can a person be 'lazy' if they send their toddlers to bed naked in a sweltering British heat?

What a daft thing to say?! Does it really take so much effort to get PJs on children that omitting it can get you labelled 'lazy'?

[tut-tutters away]

Val007 Mon 08-Jul-13 12:20:34

You are not! My 17 month old went to bed with only a nappy on. I put his bodysuit on a couple of hours later. It was too hot last night smile

Branleuse Mon 08-Jul-13 12:27:48

oh ffs. I was expecting this to be about something juicy.

why would anyone put pyjamas on their kids when its boiling?

I don't sleep in anything when it's this hot so I don't see why DD would need to. I only put some knickers over her nappy as she knows how to pull them off.

And I'm another who really can't see why that's "lazy"

It's fucking roasting!

KellyElly Mon 08-Jul-13 14:24:01

Very strange thread title.

Pigsmummy Mon 08-Jul-13 14:57:05

Just a baby grow (not sleep suit) and nappy to bed and in house, currently contemplating what to put DD to go out now. It's 26c here currently and last night it was 22c at baby bedtime.

badguider Mon 08-Jul-13 14:59:32

confused don't understand any of the 'evil' or 'lazy' references... sleep in what's comfy surely - the warmer the weather, the less you wear...

No???

thistlelicker Mon 08-Jul-13 15:04:15

Op didn't come back!

IneedAyoniNickname Mon 08-Jul-13 15:05:52

Pigsmummy what's the difference between a baby grow and sleep suit? I always thought they were the same thing :confused

KellyElly Mon 08-Jul-13 16:17:39

thistlelicker Probably because she realised her thread title had made her look a bit strange to say the least.

Turniptwirl Mon 08-Jul-13 16:52:57

Unless they were upset then no

Tbh if they were upset but clearly too warm for anything on then no as well

Try a duvet cover rather than a sheet, it feels a bit more substantial than a sheet so I prefer it

YoniWheretheSunDontShine Mon 08-Jul-13 17:00:58

Goodness sending them to bed in a hot room with something on, might be evil no?

tis me i just wanted a catchy title so glad for all your support (was the eldest said i twas evil mummy but thanked me in the morning)

DS1(2.9) is sleeping "like daddy" ie nude. Conversely, DH actually has boxers on grin

DS2 (15m) is in just a nappy.

This is all they've worn to bed for weeks though?

bdbfan Mon 22-Jul-13 22:52:46

Dd2 has gone to sleep in a wooly onesie.

Wierd child.

(Will take it her in a bit)
