Aibu: PJs with pants underneath at night?*
siacolouredthesmallone · 12/12/2019 15:34
I do, partner does, and so do the kids. However we didn't when we were kids, and my nieces don't when they come to stay. Was reading something on the NHS site about worms recently (prompted by the wildly inappropriate 'medicating-someone-else's-kid' post a few days ago - I mean the action was inappropriate, not the "thread") and it suggested wearing pants with PJs to combat thread-worms, implying that ppl don't normally??
Aibu in that we all do wear pants with nightwear as it's basic hygiene to me ?

I think if your children have got threadworm, pants are a good idea because it makes it that bit harder for them to reach down and scratch and thereby transfer eggs back to their mouths. But normally, no you don't need them and certainly for women, it's a good thing to let there be a bit more airflow.

I have very fragile skin, to the point that I’m under the care of a doctor for it. I do not wear pants under my pajamas. On the rare occasions I do for some reason, I always suffer consequences.
So instead, I wash my loose, breathable pajama bottoms at the same frequency I was pants. Hygiene issue Solved.

So if you go on holiday for a week do you all take 14 pairs each?!
I am a no pants person and would not be encouraging doubling the number of pants each person in the family wears a week.
I do wonder sometimes why people on MN all seem to do more laundry than me and i think it's lots of these little habits building up.
