have a feeling that i might be a bit neurotic (pfb!!!) about my 16mo always wearing a vest... as in the ones with poppers underneath..... he's old enough now to wear a tshirt with no body suit on underneather isnt he??......... and to be fair at this time of year he'd prob be too hot so i usually end up putting him in just a short sleeved vest with shorts or jeans on plus a cardi or whatever..... consequently he never wears any of the shirts or tshirts ive got him cos i think he'll be too hot with a shirt and vest underneath......... god i am beuing pfb arent i?....... think i feel like it keeps the nappy on or something!!
when did yours start to not wear bodysuits????......
I can't remember but it's been a while (DS is 2.5 now).
I moved him to wearing non-poppered vests for a while, under t-shirts, but it was a short phase, he doesn't wear vests in summer now.
On a warm day, he'll be fine without a vest.
Thinking about it, I did keep DS in a poppered vest longer than some of my friends did with theirs. Perhaps there's something deep-seated going on about refusing to accept our little babies are growing up Or perhaps it's nothing like that and we're simply creatures of habit.
Yes it's PFB, but endearingly so IMO I wouldn't worry too much about it.
My DD is nearly 2 and almost always still wears a poppered vest. It does kind of keep the nappy 'contained' as it were! Until very recently I still put her in sleepsuits, rather than pyjamas and now the nappy is really drooping come morning-time! Makes her look much less babyish, sob.
Guess I'm being a bit PFB with the vests, she's still my baby! I do try to get a few cheap but nice, colourful vests for summer if it's too hot for both vest and t-shirt. And she's still in sleeping bags, and a cot.....
I have been wondering about this, my DS is 11 months and I always dress him in a poppered vest because it means he doesn't get a gap when his T-shirt rides up. It is a problem on really hot days though. I must be brave and try without a vest at some point!
I still do poppered vests - not really thought about leaving them off, in fact I've just bought a pack in 18-24 months (next size up). They are really nice colours from M&S so in warm weather she wears them on their own like a t-shirt with trousers/leggings.
They stop any gaps in the middle - in fact I wish they did them in my size!
