Silly, first timer question, but can someone explain to me the difference between a baby grow and sleepsuit? I've seen both terms, but i'm not sure if there is any difference.

Also do we have warmer baby grows/sleepsuits for winters, or can I buy the ones available now and they can be used in winter time?

babygro = sleepsuit

bodysuit = vest

If cold at night, wear vest and babygro

baby grows and sleepsuits are the same thing.

body suits have no legs to them and they popper underneath the nappy.

the ones available now can be used in winter time but when it was really cold i would put a fleecy sleepsuit over the top.

most babygros have feet on the legs, but some sleepsuits don't - i.e end at the ankle.

also, you don't tend to get short sleeved babygro's but you can get short sleeved sleep suits!

have i just confused things again wink

Me too nappy.

Babyrows/sleepsuits are the same as bodysuits/vests but with legs.
Rompers are like sleepsuits but more like shorts.

In this weather we tend to just put ds to bed in a bodysuit aka vest. Also he sometimes just wears one of them over his nappy in the day.

There are also fleecy suits in winter which are sometimes referred to as sleepsuits or as pramsuits.
