How many nights do your older children wear their pyjamas before washing them?

My Dses are 9 and 7, and I always seem to be washing their PJ's, especially the bottoms. normally they wear them for a couple of nights, but just recently it's been never ending PJ's in the washing basket

DDs are 4 and 6 and I change them once a week.

You need ot put a limit on them in that case. Dd2 will just change hers on a whim so I insist that she wears them for at least three nights before a change (the only exception is a change in the weather therefore needing warmer/cooler pjs). Dd1 would wear the same ones all the time unless I insisted on her changing them grin

Er rather a lot of changes in that post!!!

If they only put them on after the bath and take them off before breakfast, a week, assuming no spills, accidents etc.

Hmmm. But unless they wear pants underneath it is like wearing pants for more than one day, isn't it? DS, 6, has clean pyjamas about every 3 days. Or more often - because he eats his breakfast wearing them.

And another thing, it only ever seems to be PJ bottoms I wash, then will find 5 or 6 tops under beds etc. DS2 sometimes still wets and will hide wet bottoms, so then they stink to high heaven

ermm - until they spill breakfast on them and therefore they need washing blush
