  • We sleep..in the buff here. The boys started sleeping in just boxers around age 5. As teens the started the in the nude thing. It wasn't a big deal to me as long as they were modest in the rest of the house. I tried hard to make their rooms their comfort zone. No meaning tous, tvs and such...an emotional comfort zone.

  • Why wouldn't you? What's wrong with it? Why teach him to be ashamed of his body? I've got three girls, and we all sleep in the nude when we feel like it. It's not a big deal. Most of the day they don't even realize if they're naked or not. When I put clothes on, they're all like "Where are you going, Mommy?" lol. Nudeness isn't a big deal here. Of course we are all females so maybe it's a little different.

  • I would let him. My son is 6 and sleeps in his underwear. If he wanted to sleep naked I would let him as long as he was in his own room/bed and didn't prance around the house nude in front of the rest of our family.

  • All of my kids sleep naked. We are pretty open with nudity around here. The human body is beautiful and nothing to be ashamed of. If they want to sleep naked OR wear pajamas its up to them. My older daughter keeps pjs next to her bed in case of fire lol.

  • My boys..(my dh, 2 and 6 yr olds) all sleep in their underwear (or diaper). They REFUSE to wear clothes. In fact, the boys rarely wear clothes at home. If I dress them, they are stripped within an hour. COmpletely naked might unnerve me...LOL....My older son is a bed wetter and my two yr old is not PT yet, so they sleep as naked as they can get.

  • My son asks me every night if he can sleep in his underwear. I tell him yes but my husband says no...which I think is odd, but anyway. I tell him as long as he's in his own bed alone and when he gets up puts at least pants on he can sleep however way he wants.*shhh we don't let Daddy know that* My son tends to only do it on nights that are warm in his room.
