At Target the other day I saw some footie pajamas. They were cute and fuzzy and looked nice and warm. They were also sized for eight year olds.
Footie pajamas are nice for tiny kids, who are too young to obey commands to leave their socks on at night. They keep the feet of tiny kids warm all night, along with the rest of them.
The big problem with footie pajamas, though, is the same problem you get when you have to get out from under the covers in the morning: without them it's cold!
A little kid is going to fuss when you take those warm jammies off to change their diaper. That sort of thing is necessary, no matter how snuggly you are. But think about how much more cold someone with more heat to lose would feel when having to get out of them for a similar reason. Bathrooms are the coldest rooms in the house in the winter, especially when you’re wearing footie pajamas.You can stay under the covers for as long as possible, but sooner or later you’re going to have to get up. Two piece flannel pajamas will let you ease into the cold, but will definitely not be as cute as footie pajamas might. The choice is up to you.
