I'm going back to bed-sharing and the weather has changed a whole lot since I stopped. 


What do you ladies wear to bed to keep warm?

I've tried a few things to stay warm and avoid blankets around me. A cardigan and a button down of my husband's were too bulky with the buttons and the sleeves. I ended up taking a pair of scissors to a long sleeve shirt, and I cut a long V in the neckline so I can nurse the babe throughout the night, but keep my arms covered. They were shirts I have had for years and didn't wear out of the house, so I figured why not. 


If it's really cold I'll wear a lower cut nightgown underneath the long sleeve shirt along with pajama pants.

I have a fleece piece of fabric (originally intended for a sling, but too stretchy) that I wrap around my upper body/shoulders, and otherwise sleep naked. I tend to overheat easily... but at the same time, my skin gets surface cold, so this solves both, since it's easy to move on and off wihout disturbing DD if I need to.

I have a pair of pajamas with the loose top buttoning up the front and a low cut v neck. When DS was a newborn I also had to wear a nursing bra with pads in it, now I am much less leaky :)
