to wander the streets in my jammies

4 month old DS is overtired and screaming. Too tired to eat and too hungry to sleep. If I put him in the sling and walk he'll sleep for a bit but all my trousers are in the wash. Would I be totally unreasonable to go out in my jammies?

Ah just go, sod it! Just make sure you're warm enough, it's a bit windy here.

Can you not just walk around the house/garden?

Not at all! <too scared to tell a woman 4 months post partum even if I thought SIBU,but she's not>

I wouldn't but if you think it will help and your happy then do it

i would probably end up walking laps of the house instead

Nothing is unreasonable in the quest to get a tiny baby to sleep. Good luck!

It's dark, no one will notice

I just took the dog out in mine

mymiraclebubba I live in a cluttered tiny flat, I would get dizzy.

Go for it !

Just a tip- buy black jersey bottoms and you will be able to go out about your business in your pjs and no one will ever notice grin

Hope your baby settles

Go for it, I wouldn't give it a second thought if i see you with a young baby, good thing about slings they keep both you and baby warm but still take a coat its bloody windy out

If you feel safe enough where you live then go for it.

Given that it seems to be OK to go shopping, do the school run, go to the supermarket, in PJs these days, I can't imagine anyone is going to care.

Nothing is U if it helps a baby sleep. Good luck.

Magmar Sat 22-Mar-14 21:03:21

Ah sod it I'm off out. Thanks smile

Do it. But wrap up nice and warm.

God I was just thinking exactly the same thing the dog needs a wee before bed and Im cosy in pj bottoms.

No. Since Jonny Fingers in the 1970s it's really not been that weird at all.

I second the black jersey jim jams as a good way of ensuring nightwear goes undetected in the outside world.

Or tuck jammie legs into boots or wellies and coat on top- who is to know what you're wearing?

Magmar Sat 22-Mar-14 21:47:19

I found a pair of jeggings (I know, it's all that fits my flump - like baby belly) and put them on back to front. Go me!
