we'd have a very wet bed if we all slept nekkid (between me leaking and dd, well, leaking).
But dh and I sleep in just our underwear and dd sleeps in just a diaper now that it's warming up.

It's funny, tho - before I got pregnant i always slept in the nude (dh has always worn boxers and socks), but once I hit the 2nd trimester I had to have a nightgown on.

Yeah, we do. Not always, like I might not take off pajamas I put on previously or if it's cold or something.

As for leaking, we have a waterproof pad for that. We're pretty consistent with ECing at night though so the real moisture issue is Lina's head sweating and making a icky cold spot.

unless I fall asleep before I get my clothes off. DS is swaddled and DD is always naked when were home. DH may or may not wear underwear.

ah, but why not?

I could never see this one turning negative..


so, to answer the question, we alternate
I prefer to have jammas and my partner prefers to be nekkid, though not so much when the older kids are in bed
. I usually end up without a shirt (due to a fondling babe) and I occasionally have to strip down due to a diaper leak..

bottom line, if it stops working we change it. everyone in our bed must be comfortable with the sleeping arrangements and, lately, nudity doesn't fit in as much.. I also worry about cps catching wind- it's bad enough [for them] that we don't vax, don't do pediatricians, do co-sleep, do UP/UC, eat vegan, et cetera.. They don't need us sleeping nekkid too

how considerate of you!! Thats funny...

we all sleep naked usually, except for me and baby who sometimes wear a shirt. we ec at night, so everything stays dry and i don't like having to figure out how to get pants on and off of the baby while both of us are half asleep...
dp is adamant about himself sleeping naked; always has been. i wonder if that will change as dd gets a little older (she is one today!) or what.

Haha it's the opposite for me. I always wanted a nightgown and a snuggly blanket. Now I wear next to nothing.

DH meanwhile, must have night-time diabetes or something.
Not kidding you, he wears boxers, fleece pants, a t-shirt and a fleece sweatshirt to bed. And he wants the heater running at 70 through the night.

So if you peeked into our room one night, you'd see DH, shivering under his blanket and 2 layers of clothing, then me and DD on the other side, half naked and sweating.

And this from the guy who wears summer clothes and sandals outside during winter....

Dh is naked, I've had a long sleeved shirt on due to it being cold and not being able to pull the covers up to my chin, and DD has a diaper and either a long/short sleeved shirt also due to it being cold. As soon as it warms up I'm sure it will be down to just the diaper on DD. I love being able to feel my loved ones' skin and in a completely non-sexual way, just want to make that clear. I think we're pretty touch deprived today and especially bare skin touch deprived, so it's nice to have that all night long. As soon as it's not comfortable anymore we'll change it, but for now I'm loving it.

While breastfeeding I always found it harder to sleep with clothes ON rather than without... though at the time their father worked third shift so it was just me and the baby(s) in bed... adding his body temperature in (and scratchy body fur) was guaranteed to get me to thrown on at least a big shirt. Hate sticking to other peoples bodies... lol... especially hairy ones.

I have just one question for everyone who sleeps naked...how the heck do you stop your skin from sticking/rubbing against itself?
In the winter, I get a horrible rash behind my knees & on my inner thighs if I don't wear pants (think it's from trying to curl up to get warm). In summer, everything sticks together & drives me insane.

I just don't. If I did, I'd be in pajamas. Just like I wear socks to bed when my feet are rough and wear pajamas when I'm cold.

I've slept with just a hat on before because I was cold, and the hat made the difference.
