I loved footed pjs for my kids. As babies, I didn't want to cover them too much, and as toddlers they never kept the blankets on. These pjs solved all the problems!
I had one zip up sack that I loved. It was warm like the footed pjs but I didn't have to mess with the legs. During summer months, I used the cotton sacks that have drawstrings at the bottom. Just tie the baby in and done!
I used to have a bunch of better quality sleepers that were single colors, without decoration. Are you handy at sewing? You could find a pattern and buy fleece when it's on sale.
There's no such thing as global warming. Chuck Norris was cold so he turned up the sun.
I had these ones that I just loved I think they were by carter, and they had snaps down both legs for easier changing and less risk of waking the baby up in the middle of the night. Nice thick material that looked so warm. Me and hubby kept joking we wanted a pair for winter.
We only do zippies, but I prefer footless. Gap, Gymboree, and The Children's Place are the places Ihave found them. TCP ones generally have feet, while Gymboree usually doesn't have feet (better for us, b/c she hates anything on her feet). Anyway, I have had good luck finding the mroe expensive ones on ebay and at onsignment stores too. Zippies changed my life. Never again for snaps! Also, the brands I mentioned are nto treated with those freaky chemicals meant to make the garments flame retardant, which is a plus for me too.
