Dd is growing out of everything so fast, and as she is wetting more and more, her night-time diaper butt is also expanding exponentially, lol! I need some ideas for pajamas that will fit over wool-covered layers. I have tried to size up but I'm just not keeping up with her!<br><br>
TIA!

Right now I am going with sweatpants and long sleeved shirts. Last year I did footed blanket sleepers or Carter's 2 pc pajamas.

Aren't most blanket sleepers roomy enough in the butt? That's what we've been using, anyway - or the sweatpants he wore during the day, depending on how motivated I am to change his clothes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Just buy a size bigger and that should work, lol! We do that. Also, most blanket sleepers are fine; or we do sweats and t-shirts.<br><br>

I don't use wool at night, but I use the Gap one piece PJs with the feet over Fuzzi bunz. They are very stretchy, so I think they would fit over a lot! Plus we also use a sleepsack over the PJs (made by Halo <a href="http://www.halosleep.com/" target="_blank">http://www.halosleep.com/</a> - they also sell them at Target online and Sears and some other places), and you could definitely just use that and a long sleeved T-shirt.<br><br>

and bypass the cover <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I know a few WAHMs take orders like Cushie Tushies. Some just put on ebay so you can look there and alsoo Little Turtle Knits sells the pattern if you are inclined to do it yourself or know someone that can do it...

We use the Baby Gap 2 piece PJs. They have lots of space in the tush area for a big diaper. I can buy Sophies real size and get an Aristocrat with 2 prefolds underneath.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We have joked for months about ds's PJs and how he'll never find a flattering fit.<br><br>
My mom buys him lots of carters PJs and they have the funniest fit of all, or so I thought till I tried a gap sleeper on him the other night <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I think the blanket sleepers (ie-footy pajamas) are the best to fit over the cloth, I just don't think they last as well as others, but he does look better in them. I stuff his HH with a UBCPF and a doubler, so his butt is chunky at night. I enjoyed the summer when he could just wear a top with a diaper, and no bottoms.

Ds walked around this morning with the biggest PJ butt! He had his ApronStrings on under his Carter's two piece PJ's. The ApronStrings is at the bottom of the pile now because it's just so darned big, and his Carter's are a snug fit anyway.<br><br>
I have one pair of Hanna Anderssen Stripes and Zippers that I bought used. They fit well with enough room for a big diaper butt.

If you don't want to go with wool pants then Hanna Andersson all the way! Just don't look for any Holiday ones in size 80 on eBay right now, b/c I'm watching them! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Yep, Hannas or Gap.<br><br>
I've been using wool pants, though, and it just seems so comfy, and it's just one less thing to put on (just diaper and pants). I have 3 more pairs of these coming, 2 are made from wool fabric and one pair is hand knitted. The Freshies pants are awesome because she puts in a 2 layer snap-in liner in addition to the fulled/felted wool. I'm anxious to try the other "brands", Patchwork Pixie (who custom sized her pants for me for free, she is such a sweetie) and the Cushie Tushie "girly" pants reject from Jamie (hey, thanks jamie).<br><br>

Lands End jammies were awesome for us. Ben's night time dipe butt was HUGE and the Lands End footie sleeper was even a little loose <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Tristan's nighttime bum is HUGE and I can't find any store-bought pjs that fit. So, I just sew my own. I use the knit pants pattern in Kwik Sew for Toddlers---it is super quick and easy. I cut it so that there is a bit more room in the bum (which is easy to figure with their instructions) and they work fantastically.
