An illustrated tutorial.
Grab a baby, some pjs and the babies leg.
Tighten your hold because they get kinda squirmy.
Put the first foot into the pj leg.
Watch out for the Pj Duck n Roll maneuver. To counter act this make sure you let the babies leg roll IN your hand until it reaches the calf area of the leg then clamp down to stop the roll. Do Not Let Go Of The Baby.
Once the Hand Clamp has been applied the baby will go down.
But not for long, the baby will rally so remember work to try and work fast.
Keep trying to get that first foot into the first leg of the pjs
Now after you get the first foot into the pjs and you realize the pjs are on backwards do not give up. Just keep trying.
Remove the feet from the pjs.
Take a moment to regroup.
Once your composure has been regained feel free to start again from a different position.
The baby will try to implement the Duck n Roll again but from this position you should be able to counter and get the baby on his back.
Once you get the baby on its back you are good to go. The baby will generally conceed at this point and all you need to do is finish the job.
Don't be disheartened by pouting, this is natural just get those feet into the pjs.
Once the feet are in stand the baby up.
Put his arms into the sleeves.
Start zipping him up...
Angle is everything for the zip. You will have to find the angle that works for you and baby.
Congratulations! You have successfully dressed your baby (or grandbaby) for bed!
Now let go and see what happens...
