Would you ever put your child to bed in just a robe when he or she is sick... in the winter?

My brother did this and when she woke up in the morning and came up stairs in just a diaper and a robe i was furious... and she has a terrible cold right now..UGH and they have ANOTHER baby on the way

  • I wouldn't, I would make sure they had pj's on.

  • My daughter prefers to not wear pajamas to bed, she's always been like this. But it doesn't get really cold where we live, we're in California. BTW colds aren't caused by being cold.

  • Was the heat on? She probably was hot from being sick.

  • Depends on how warm the house is and how comfortable the child is. My son gets hot when he sleeps, so when he's sick, and especially with a fever, I need to make sure he doesn't get over heated, so we minimize his clothing/sheets.

  • The heat wasnt on... and she didnt even have a blanket :( I know colds are caused from being cold he did this when she was already sick.

  • Oh BTW I am talking about a 15 month old that doesnt talk, so she cant really say if she is cold or not... shes still a baby :(

  • yes i would. my son hates pajamas and always has, he doesnt sleep with a blanket either. he rarely wears them and its been that way since he was very small. i dont really think it makes a difference either way. sleeping without pajamas doesnt make them sicker. colds are caused by germs, not the weather.

  • Um, I don't think it's a big deal. Not the best choice, but I can think of a lot worse offenses. Air temp does not cause illness, only discomfort.

  • What does it matter? If she was sick, maybe she got sick on/in her pj's. Maybe this was all he had.
