My mom bent over backwards to make sure I understood the value of sleep gowns before the babies were born. So much so that she bought FOURTEEN of them. She was confident from experience (30+ years ago) that sleep gown are the best things ever for nighttime changes. She must have talked to me about them at least 20 times before they were born.
Once the babies were here, we tried them out. My personal opinion: they suck. I hate them! My guys sleep swaddled so I dress them in a onesie underneath and they’re super toasty. A onesie is super easy to unsnap for a quick change. I’ve found the gowns to be rather annoying. It actually takes longer to change them when they’re wearing a stupid gown which just pisses them off. They’ve only worn them a few times but I’m donating them in the move. Hopefully someone else will find them useful.
P.S. They’ve both gained almost a pound in the last week!
