Does anyone know where I can buy some?  I'm trying to find layering pieces for DS but most seem to have hoods which I don't need.  Ideally fleece or something thicker than cotton would be good.  

Our house is freezing in the winter and all I have a sleepsuits and a couple of longsleeve tshirts.  Can't seem to find warm outerwear anywhere!

Thanks

ETA:  Preferably online as going anywhere right now is in the too hard basket for me.

Tried Big W? But I agree, most things have hoods which are a hassle.

Seed have some lovely knitted cardigans without hoods (i hate hoods too).  I also found some really lovely jackets at David Jones I have brought quite a few for our little one due in a couple of weeks.

I bought DS a lovely white cardigan, and a thick woolen jacket (without hood) from purebaby.  I love that shop!!  Beautiful clothes and really great quality.  They are online too!

I found it so difficult to find warm clothes for babies without a hood, I was always scared it would get in DD's way because the hoods seem to be so big as well.  I ended up getting one really warm jacket from Kmart and one from Myer (sprout brand).  My Mum and I searched for about 2-3 weeks to find them

Do you have a CWA branch in your town/suburb?

I would contact them and see if they have any knitters who want to do you a little job?

The CWA used to have a shop front in the city I went to Uni. in - it was fantastic as a place to buy home made goodies for nibbling purposes and beautiful hand knits and crochet.

Thanks for the links, off to check out now.

I don't know why they make jackets with hoods for babies.  They're on the backs most of the time so it can't be that comfortable having a big lump of fabric on their backs!

Yes to the CWA, or fetes, or country markets for knitted woolies.

I also live Pure Baby, but have had excellent wearing zip=ups from Sprout with no hood - they go through the washing machine (and dryer) a million times and still look good.

I think what the others said about CWA ladies or fetes or knitting shops, you could get some little old lady to knit for you (if you don't know a knitter) and I agree, baby wondersuits need a cardigan over them for extra warmth. Also socks underneath the feet in the wondersuits. bbabyflip.gif

And you need knits made of wool or something with wool in it, as cotton and windcheater material is useless. Are you in Victoria OP, because I would knit something for your baby. My granddaughter was the best dressed baby girl in the hospital. hhugs.gif

If you are in Melbourne there is a stall selling hand knitted goods in the foyer of the women's hospital. I saw it there last week and was looking at the cardigans, they were all lovely and I think they were reasonably priced.  It was raising money for the special care nursery I think.  The lady said she was there every Wednesday.  Other big hospitals might have the same deal if you aren't in Melbourne too.
