im considering co sleeping with my (increasingly sleepless) ds. ive taken him into bed before when my dh wasnt there, but that was easy to make safe since there was loads of space to move things away from him. what do you wear/use when cosleeping? Think i need an adult sized grobag with breastfeeding clips! tia

Just pajama bottoms as it's easier. She latches herself on then!

wow your bedroom must be nice and cosy! mine isnt freezing but im normally a duvet up to the nose kinda girl, not being able to do that is a major thing putting me off!

I have some fleece PJs, the top is the button down kind so I can just have the top few buttons open to breastfeed. Some of the really thick kind you can get might suit your purposes, but actually I do use a cover and just keep it well away from DS though I understand not everyone is comfortable doing this.

I sleep in a thermal! I sleep up higher with my boobs at her head level so upper body would freeze without it. Just lift it up and down as necessary

Just long sleeve pjs that I got for a tenner off amazon and I just lift up my top when she's hungry

I wear a fleecy onesie with a fleece jacket underneath, both unzipped so he can just latch on and because he uses my boob as a pillow

My bedroom is pretty chilly, I still have a thick duvet up to my waist.

I have a really thick baggy fleece type sweatshirt I wear on colder nights. DD is now 16months so don't bother winding even for daytime feeds, but I never remember winding her for night feeds unless she was up for a nappy change etc. if he falls asleep I am sure he is ok. I just used the cot as a side to the bed to stop her falling out.
