Why Don’t They Make These?

My daughter is tosser/turner/flipper type of sleeper.  She also has pretty much no body fat and gets extremely cold at night, but won’t sleep under covers due to the tossy/turny thing.  My solution so far has been to have her wear footed pajamas at night.  Well, that worked well until we got to size 3T, when the manufacturers apparently made the decision that they could suddenly stop placing the piece of fabric over the top of the zipper which helps to keep the zipper from digging into the neck.  So, her zipper tends to annoy her, which in turn annoys us.

Do you know that in all of the vast Amazon, I could only find ONE  2-piece long sleeve footed pajamas? ONE!  Come on now, I know that there are two year olds that are quite big for their age that could totally still be wearing footed pajamas but are ready to start potty training.  And do you know what will hamper potty training? Yup, a 1  piece footed pajama!

So clothing manufaturers, what is so hard about making a 2 piece pajama set where the pants happen to have feet?  What, I ask?

Also, when my son was about three or four, zip-off pants were everywhere.  And I loved them unconditionally.  There was nothing not to love, and they especially make sense in the climate we live in, which can be warm in the day, but darn cold at night and in the mornings.  But I was only able to buy them for about two years and then, poof! Gone!  Never to return!

Sure, I could buy them at a specialty clothing retailer like REI, but I’m not willing to pay that much.

Why do clothing manufacturers hate me so much?

    I just put socks on the kid if they are wearing non footed pjs and I am worried about them getting cold.

    I tried socks, but my kid just rips them off as he’s falling asleep. I’m with you, Glinda. Two-piece footy pajamas would be the shiznit!!!

    Try Lands’ end. They are expensive but they have 2 piece footed PJs

    as well as zip up PJs with what looks like a flap over the top of the zipper.
    Looks like old navy has some one piece pjs with a zipper flap on line too.

    I have no clue what happened to convertible cargo pants for boys. I hope they come back in before my little ones stop changing sizes between seasons.

      Thank you for the link, Ceri, but the 40.00 price tag scares me!
