Next up is not so much a clothing fit issue as a sanitary issue. I don't want to share all Joseph's little secrets online, but I do want to share a tip I have for eliminating nighttime Pull-Ups problems. Basic pajamas are meant to be easy on, easy off. That easy off part became quite a problem for us a couple of years ago. I was so frustrated with my pajama options: blanket sleepers (zippers on the front) and elastic waist bottoms with pullover tops. Neither stayed on all night, nor did the Pull-Up. What a mess. I considered sewing something with a zipper up the back and then ah hah! Warren and I had an idea to cut the feet off his blanket sleepers and put them on him backwards. Genius!
|See the gap. It's called Sandal gap deformity.|
I cut the feet off his pajamas right below the ankle elastic.
But it was summer and he'd be pretty hot, so we cut off the sleeves just above the elbow. Perfect! The neck was slightly gagging him. I cut a V-notch in the "front" making more room. Perfectly Genius!
He's been wearing his pajamas this way for at least 2 or 3 years and it's a no-fail option for keeping the pajamas and Pull-Up on.
|This is actually a pair of his winter pajamas. I left the sleeves in tact for warmth.|
