I am wondering what everyone dresses their EC babe in when it's chilly. We've had some unseasonably cool weather the past couple of days and I have been at a loss as to what to dress Anna in that is warm and also easily accessible for pottying!<br><br>
I bought some Huggalugs from the EC Store; they tend to fall down though (are they too big?). Then I put a prefold on her with a prefold belt and a long sleeved shirt or sweater. I can't help but wonder if she's warm enough with all the gaps! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
What do you all do?<br><br>
TIA.

Well, the past few days I've had DS in a long sleeve shirt and huggalugs as well, and sometimes pants. But man, pants are a pain in the butt. Last year, I just dressed him like "all those other babies" lol and got really good at unsnapping little outfits. That was a pain though. I think what you had her in sounds good, if you have lots of pants you can just do that instead of the prefold, it might be easier. I think that's what we're going to end up doing!

i went to thrift stores and bought really thick sweat pants, probably about 14 pairs. half of them i cut the butts out of them the rst i left alone, they were pretty good at soaking up the pee. and a sweatshirt or t-shirt with a zip up hoodie.

Hmmmm... I didn't think about just doing pants and nothing else, although there's no difference between wetting a prefold or a pair of pants...<br><br>
Oh, it's the simple things you just don't think of... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I do have to get shirts - she has sooo many onesies and I don't use them because they are a pain. Shirts are not quite so easy to come by.

You can always cut the bottom off the onesies to make shirts. I haven't done it yet, but keep meaning to. Something in me has a hard time doing it because I feel like I'm "destroying" really cute useable perfect clothing...but the thing is that I DON'T use them because they are really a pain, but I would use them if they were cut off into shirts...maybe this post will inspire me to whip out the scissors for once and for all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It does seem silly to buy shirts when I have all these onesies that could easily be shirts...

We have ours in a diaper or cotton <a href="http://www.naturalebaby.com/bummis-training-pants.htm" target="_blank">training pants</a>, a sweater, and knee-highs.<br><br>
On our oldest we just use underwear, a sweater, and knee-highs.<br><br>
If it's really cold we use real stockings and just pull them down with the undies for the potty.

I just use pants, and when its especially cold, I have some cute fleece pants with elastic waists that I got as hand-me-downs that are easy on and off in her size. Otherwise, I just like to use cotton, elastic-waisted pants, comfy and easy to slip down and up a lot. People sometimes give me jeans with a button and fly ( and elastic at the back) but these seem too bulky. I shop at a second hand baby clothing store, and each new size just purchase a bunch of plain colored pants that fit.<br><br>
I did do the baby legs for a while (leggings) but DD doesn't like them anymore, I guess maybe they dig into her legs too much.
