What about when it's really cold? Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against nakedness. My kids are not shy of being naked. It's just that in Winter here, it gets so cold that even with 2-3 blankets, you still need to wear layers of clothing to bed!

I was wondering the same thing :D Ours are little naked hippies all summer, but it's simply too cold to go naked int he fall, winter and even a good part of the spring. We heat our house primarily with a wood burning stove (have electric heat, but prefer stove), and the bedrooms don't heat all that well, so sleeping naked is out of the question.



Maybe she lives in a warm climate?

That may be why you are cold. Here's something I learned from my SO while camping in cold Colorado weather....



Layering to sleep is what makes you cold. All you need is a nice blanket that keeps the heat in (no thin blankets that are cotton... I'm talking about a nice comforter/quilt, a microfiber blanket with feathers inside, basically something that keeps your heat in and would normally keep you warm). Then you need to wear the proper clothes to bed. Wear warm socks, and tighter fitting PJ's. Think of thermal long underwear type things, or long flannel. But it needs to be tighter fighting. Not big and baggy. Cover up close in a blanket or snuggle next to your SO and you should be warmer.



The thing is, if you wear layers of loose clothing and have blankets that let the heat out, your body works harder to heat up those layers than if you had thin, close fitting layers and a proper blanket.



For like 2 years we would go camping and I'd be in my sleeping bag, thick socks, like 5 layers of clothes, and a comforter on top. A beanie too, and would be frickin FREEZING. My SO would only wear his boxers and socks in his sleeping bag and would be sweating. I finally gave in and just wore my PJ pants and a long sleeved shirt with wool socks, and got a proper sleeping bag. I woke up at like 3am DRIPPING with sweat. My SO is right... the less layers you have on the less your body works to heat them all up. You just need that proper blanket to keep the heat in :)

Once in a while I will put my son in a fresh pair after a give him a bath in the morning. But I never leave the house with him in his pj's.

Yeah, it's nice now that I don't freeze my ass off camping, lol.



And if I'm cold in the house, I'll get a hoodie with a tighter tank top underneath, long pj pants and thick socks and it will keep me warm :)

I sleep in underwear and bra and I'm never cold even in winter. My husband wears his clothes to bed (shirt, pants, socks, and thermal shirt and underwear underneath) and is always cold lol. I'll have to let him know about this. :P

See... proof it works! lol



The only thing that sucks is you are warm in sleeping bags camping.... but then that few minutes it takes to get dressed in the morning or in the middle of the night when you have to pee SUCKS. It's like your damn nipples will freeze off, lol!
