Just been given one for DS2 (didn't use one for DS1) and not sure what he should wear with it? It's a 1 tog.

Please can someone enlighten me?! Thanks

a sleepsuit ?

Merlin Sun 05-Jun-05 18:25:28

Thanks LC but should have legs in it or not? Don't want to overheat him!!!

that tog is a height of summer tog .. the winter ones are 2.5tog

DD is still in her winter one and last night wore just a long-sleeved top and nappy

think a sleepsuit under it will be fine

DD2 is in tog 1 and wearing just a long sleeved top. She has eczema and I don't want to aggrevate it - especially on the back on legs. Did you not get a thermometer with it - has handytips for what to wear in what temps.

Nimme - was given it secondhand so no thermometer. Will try normal sleepsuit first - weather is a bit cooler anyway today - where's the heatwave?!!!

I have spare thermometer if you want it (3 in fact) If you want it CAT me.

blimey Twiglett, my ds2 has been in his high summer (0.5 tog) one a lot of nights recently, I think he'd be much too hot in his 2.5 tog ones at the mo.

Merlin, I've been using long-sleeved bodysuits or just PJ tops the last few nights. Sleepsuit are OK for colder nights, but the best thing to do is to slip in and check him once he's asleep, you'll soon get used to how many clothes he needs in it. They keep surprisingly warm inside a grobag IME.

you could also have a look at this and go through the questions to see what they recommend: here

Merlin, I've got a spare one I can bring over tomorrow for the meetup. Nimme, hope that's OK, just thought it made sense as I am going to Merlin's anyway.

thanks for the offer nimme, but a RL friend came to the rescue over the weekend with one! Thanks also CSA for the temps.

Now where can I buy long sleeve bodysuits - can't find any at all?

Merlin Mon 06-Jun-05 11:41:32

Oh - posts crossed. Thanks KP but got one now. See you tomorrow.

cheapest ones i found were from mothercare - this . the grobag company does them too although much more expensive.
