Reading the thread about the zipper wondersuit ad got me thinking. When DD was in onsies and wondersuits, it didn't feel right to do them up without a singlet or shorter onsie underneath.

Is that my own weird thing or pretty normal?








(And yes, this is me trying to finish uni work.)

Depending on the weather, I would put a singlet underneath. It helped cover the belly from the gape-y poppers but that could just be my chubby babies original.gif

I always put a singlet on DD under a wondersuit.  My thinking was, if it is cool enough for a wondersuit, it was cool enough for a singlet too.

Depends on the weather. At the moment we only put DS into wondersuits for bed, and he has a sleeveless sleeping bag over that, so he'd generally be too warm with a singlet as well. In winter when he was wearing wondersuits a lot he always had a singlet on underneath

Always had a singlet underneath.  It just does not feel right when babies don't have a singlet, especially when wearing a jumpsuit.  I still feel the same way when I change a baby in a jumpsuit without a singlet.

Babies are supposed to have an extra layer to us so if we have a t-shirt they need singlet and t-shirt.  

I wear a singlet now as I really feel the cold even though they weather is quite nice - heading towards the mid 20's.

Any baby I have changed has had a singlet.  I wear a singlet under everything still .........,...... I still manage to zip either myself, my singlet or another part of my clothes into my zip

Short sleeve body suit under our wonder suits.

I found singlets rode up and were useless. I changed to the short sleeved body suits worked much better.

I hate singlets! Singlet suit with crotch snaps or a shorty onesie if it's quite cool, otherwise just the jumpsuit. I hate the idea of the zippers, it means undoing the whole thing to check or change a nappy rather than just the bottom half. Silly silly idea.

Yes, singlets under everything. The shops wouldn't stock so many baby singlets if they weren't meant to wear them. When wearing a top and pants I put one of those singlets with the crotch clips.

My first I put in singlets but hated how they rolled up her back. My second and third I used short sleeve all in one. I loved how if it gt hot you had an outfit on and ready underneath!

I consider myself quite old school when it comes to singlets, my kids pretty much always wear them unless it is a hot day.

So to answer you question op, yes I would definitely put a singlet under a jumpsuit.

Yes, used to have singlets under my babies' jumpsuits too - but  I dont think it really matters.

I always used singlets on my kids, even when it was hot - when we were kids we always wore singlets too.  dd15 still wears her singlet everywhere - it stops her clothes from scratching her.

I think my three-year-old son has owned one solitary singlet in his life.  Needless to say, I do not feel they are a necessity. I find it odd people are so keen on them when we live in a relatively hot climate.

We very rarely do singlets under jumpsuits I just find them to be not at all necessary and just add to the mountain of washing. I would rather have my kids cold than over heated, I only really use them in summer/spring with just a nappy but these days we don't use them at all because I would rather use a short sleeved onesie so little miss has a harder time stripping off.
