When did you move your DC from babygros to pyjamas?

DD is quite a little 13 month old and up til now has been in babygros to sleep, but recently she's worked out how to draw her feet up in them and poke them out of the poppers! confused Once she's done it she can't get her feet back in and gets totally stressed out - usually at about 3 in the morning!

So I was thinking about moving her in to pyjamas but I'm worried her feet will get cold at night. Do your pyjama-clad babies wear socks at night? Or are they fine with bare feet? What is the standard age for moving into pjs?

Probably a stupid question but she is my first so I feel like I'm making it up as I go along most of the time!

My DS has been in pyjamas since about 6 weeks old...but now I feel bad as everyone else has left it so much later! He's such a hot baby though so I think it helps to keep him cool if he's got his feet out. I put him in pyjamas with feet if it is particularly cold. I love him in pj's, he looks so adorable!

We found that putting the socks on OVER the babygro meant he couldn't do that thing with his feet anymore and he slept much better (and had lovely warm toasty feet). Worth a try!

4 months - I'd just found out I was pregnant again so knew I'd want to re-use babygros... and DD1's feet hit the bottom of 3-6 month babygros to the point I was concerned her feet were getting pulled tight and potentially damaged within about a fortnight of us putting her into that size babygros - so I thought fuck it and went out and bought PJs (we used sleeping bags anyway).

If I hadn't have been pregnant again at that point I would have cut the feet out and got more wear out of them - but she suddenly went through an absolutely insane growth spurt from being small for her age as an ex preemie - to being tall for her age as genetics took over.

My son was about 12 mths, someone bought him some nice PJs plus he would no longer lie still for me to do up all those poppers! He is in a sleeping bag with bare feet.

DS is 2.5 and still in babygros - he has eczema though and I find that way he cant access his body to scratch and can't scratch with his toes. pyjamas with feet sound like a fairly good alternative though
