Ooh, I like that idea.
My conclusion so far is that wearing a turtleneck with a soft knit shirt on top of it, and a sleeping cap, are the best combo I've found. So many of my pj's have buttons on the front, and sometimes I end up laying the baby on my chest to help her fall asleep, and needing to undo the buttons so I'm not trying to help her relax with a big hard button pressing into her cheek.
But I find that I spend a lot of energy trying to get my shirts unscrunched when I'm finished nursing, especially if she drifted off in a side-lying position. Then my scrunched up two layers of shirts are too uncomfortable for me to sleep, and I have to try to unscrunch them super quietly and slowly so I won't wake her up (horrors, Mama rolled two inches away from me to unscrunch her shirt!). Cutting slits in at least one layer would reduce how much scrunching action I'd have to deal with. I'm putting an extra pair of cheap warm long underwear on my shopping list!
