I have to admit, I sleep nude most nights. I find the freedom of not having clothes on much preferred to waking up tangled up in nightgown.

I was leaning towards wearing sleeping shorts and a tank top, but I am not sure. Anyone else have to make this transition, and what was your preference?

With the baby in a different room, I think being dressed with a nursing tank is probably my best bet at this point. That is great info to know about the tshirt though. I sweat a decent amount as is, so now I know to be really prepared.

If you have a baby, and you're up/down all night, I can see it being easier to be dressed.

I see your point. I don't know about you, but if they knock, I'm not groggy... I'm instantly wide awake. But I'm still fairly new to motherhood, so maybe I'm not that well adjusted yet, lol. I keep a t-shirt and flannel bottoms hanging over the top of the headboard. So if there's a knock and the husband decides to let them in, I don't even have to get up. I just grab them and slide them on. I'm not trying to dissuade you from wearing pj's. But every once in a while, you might think about sleeping naked, just to feel that closeness with your husband. Of course, my husband doesn't let a shirt get in the way of his groping, lol.

Raye, I guess that is always a possibility, but at the same time I don't really want to have to take the extra time to get changed into pjs. Our door is always locked as well. I guess mine and my husband's expectation is that it won't be appropriate anymore.
I still think I feel more comfortable transitioning into wearing some sort of clothing, just in case of emergency "child is going to vomit, quick rush them to the bathroom" type situations, or just so I can easily let them into bed with us. Will be more of a welcome snuggle at that point instead of a groggy "but I don't want to get into clothing".

My husband and I sleep nude most of the time. Our door is locked so the kids don't come in without knocking. If we decide to let them in to snuggle, then we put on jammies and unlock the door. Or, if I have to go pee I'll put on a robe until I get back in the bedroom and lock the door. So what is making you change?
