My son is 2 this summer, will he look silly in a romper?

not posting here for traffic, oh no hmm

No, I think they look lovely!

I dress mine (9 months but sizewise in 12-18 month clothes) in rompers, babygrows and knitted cardigans with long socks. They look lovely.

There's time for jeans and things when they're older.

I think rompers look a bit odd past the age of 6months, but maybe that's just me. My DS is 9months and only wears rompers as pyjamas. He is so wriggly during nappy changes I avoid things with poppers! When I see an older baby in a romper/sleepsuit I always wonder whether they're still in night things.

I dress my DS in short-sleeve bodysuits with soft shorts or joggers, and a jumper/ jacket/cardigan on top.

As long as they have chubby thighs, I'd go for it!

Have to agree with Tiger im afraid OP.

But each to their own. If you want to dress your child in a romper, do it. Your not dressing him in a bin bag so I don't see why its anyone elses business.

As long as you want to. Definitely fine at 2yrs especially short ones in the hot weather.

To the same age girls can wear them

Nothing wrong with a romper on a two year old.

I had ds in one a couple of days ago. He is 14 months so way past the "6months is best" cutoff

He was cool and he looked cute

OwlinaTree Wed 11-May-16 18:26:24

I would in the nice weather. They look super cute in them!

Peasandsweetcorn Wed 11-May-16 18:26:28

DS is a May baby and I had him in rompers the summer after he turned 2. He was my last baby, small for his age and I have always loved rompers and they seemed so comfy.

Definatley. Mine were potty trained by then and still wore them

When I see an older baby in a romper/sleepsuit I always wonder whether they're still in night things.

It wasn't long ago "sleepsuits" were called babygrows. Why do you think they are night things?

FilthyRascal Wed 11-May-16 18:29:19

I hope the summer after they turn 2 because that's how old ds is and I've got a lovely stash of rompers for him to wear this summer! I do wonder sometimes but then I give myself a shake - 2 is just a baby really! Not "too old" for anything!!

ALemonyPea Wed 11-May-16 18:31:15

Vertbaudet do them to age 3. I think they can look cute, depends on the child. DS3 would have looked cute, the elder two, not as much.

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Wed 11-May-16 18:33:13

My ds is twelve.
His onsie looks like a romper ...

ShatnersBassoon Wed 11-May-16 18:35:25

Until they no longer romp.

Janeymoo50 Wed 11-May-16 18:36:24

I'd have said until about 12-16 months, but seeing the one you posted, fine in my view for the summer. Is this also a romper? (shows age!!).

walchesterweasel Wed 11-May-16 18:39:53

I saw knee length denim bib and braces being worn at the week-end by a man well into his fifties . I didn't think that was cute !

MrsKoala Wed 11-May-16 18:48:19

Will your almost 2 year fit in it? envy My 20mo is in 3-4yo clothes and nothing cute fits him. I would put him in one of those if i could. Go for it i say.

ipsogenix Wed 11-May-16 18:48:27

I think it's probably fine until pre-school.

Hurryhurryhurry Wed 11-May-16 18:51:19

walchester was that in ulverston?

LoveFromUs Wed 11-May-16 18:52:30

Yes it would be fine for him to wear inside the house but I wouldn't bring him out in it. I stopped putting mine in rompers from around 8 months as babies look a lot nicer in clothes.

wallybantersjunkbox Wed 11-May-16 18:54:25

why - I was thinking the same about DS 11 who just cruised past in his onesie..grin

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Wed 11-May-16 18:56:21

Put him in a romper suit and take a photo to embarrass him when he's 16 grin

Furiosa Wed 11-May-16 18:59:02

DS wore romper suits until about two and a half.

He looked adorable grin
