  • I like to keep something on my little one when she was that young because of sun expsoure and at least a light layer to absorb the sweat. And if going into a car seat, it can be hot and sicky on the little one, so I just did a thin layer.

  • Yup, I do that.
    Or I give him nakie time...
    If it's nice out, we also let him splash around in a wading pool as well.

  • My son is very hot natured. When he was a baby, around the house was fine. If I had to go some place...he had on clothes...

  • I actually hate to be naked when I'm hot. I hate to have any of my skin touch any other skin on my body. Instant sweat city - yuck! So I always kept a light onsie on my daughter. She couldn't tell me if it bothered her so I had to go with what I would like in her place.

  • As long as we are not going to be out in the sun, my DS lives in nothing but a diaper on hot days (sometimes a t-shirt too).

  • If they had to be in the sun I slathered them with sunblock and kept a t-shirt on them as well as a diaper. If they didn't have to be in the sun then yeah- just a diaper or even nakie if they were in the privacy of our back yard. When in the car, a light outfit, same with out in the public, since I'd have to carry them and holding bare flesh just made them sweat more.

  • In the house or the shade just a diaper here.

  • I have always thought that a baby in just a diaper is tacky. It's like letting your kids run around in their underwear. Around the house I'd keep a onesie on him - going out in public he'd wear clothes.

  • A baby in a diaper is cute, and so is a little kid in their underwear! They only get to be young once, let them enjoy it, Anon 3:51

  • My daughter usually hangs out inside & outside at home in a t-shirt & diaper. If we go out, I put shorts on her.
