Just wondering about your LOs and vests. Do they still wear them in the summer?

Good question! I have an almost 10 month old DD and still have her in vests under t-shirts. How warm will it need to be before I just stick a t-shirt on her?!? Ha ha.

When it gets warm enough my lb just wears a t shirt. He is 20 months. Even last summer when he was 8-11 months, when it was warm enough he just wore a t shirt.

What age is your child. My 2 stopped wearing them completely quite early.

My DD has patterned vests or ones with pictures on so I can stick her in them + shorts/trousers when it's warm. I find with just t-shirt and bottoms they ride up when she's wriggling and then she ends up with a bare back/tummy.

Last year my daughter did not on warm days or she just wore a vest or romper suit.

DS wore a vest until he was about 8, and has started wearing them again in cold weather- he's 16 now.

Thanks all. We're definitely down to just a romper this week! The vest is off!

Vests are handy for summer jimjams? They keep the nappy in place but not too hot,
The only problem I have when mine doesn't wear a vest is she rubs her tummy on the stairs as she crawls up and down. Can lead to some carpet burns so just watch out.

I always had a vest on DD when she was little it's only know she's coming up 3 I've stopped. I would forgo the tshirt rather than the vest as best is good for keeping nappies on

I liked the best keeping the nappy on so found vests with polo neck style tops or pattern ones that could be worn instead of a tshirt.
Past nappy stage I often still get coloured vests for when it's warm. Or no vest
