    This is my definition (piccies to make it easier lol)

    Romper http://www.clothingattesco.com/f+f-...,catgkids,babywear-0-2-years,baby-all-in-ones

    Sleepsuits - http://www.next.co.uk/x522896s2

    Baby-gro - http://www.mothercare.com/Mothercare-Graphic-and-Stripe-All-In-One-and-Hat/LZ6568,default,pd.html

    (IMO baby-gros are essentially sleepsuits that don't look like nightwear - for example I would use these as day-wear http://www.next.co.uk/x523896s1

    By definition most places do "sleepsuits" these days as it's a money making scheme to encourage you you buy these for bedtime and proper clothes for daytime...

    As I understand it, I think I agree with Nat, but the first pic wouldn't load so I'm not sure.

    Romper - is an all-in-one WITHOUT feetie-bits.

    Sleep suit - all-in-one WITH feetie-bits.

    Babygro - I think of as just another name for sleep suits, really, although I'd use babygro to name a particularly "day-looking" sleepsuit. Xx

    I thought babygro was another name for sleepsuit. My LO used to wear them all the time, day and night!! Obviously now she's a bit older she doesn't!

    My LO has a short dress with integral knickers, which I'd call a romper. Basically anything that allows them to romp around - I think they're usually short-sleeved and short-legged with no feet.

    In all honesty, it doesn't really matter.

    When Cay was teeny and in (babygros) day and night, I just sorted through them all and split them based on which looked "day-y", and which looked "night-y". The night-y ones were his PJs from then on, and he'd have one of those every night after his bath, then a day one when he had his first nappy change in the morning. Mostly to help him get used to day and night. Xx

    No matter what they're called they'll all end up with milk, food, puke, wee or poo on them at the end of the day! I call everything that's an all in one jammies!

    As I say I think "sleepsuits" are an invention to make even more money from us Mummies.

    When we were little my Mum said they just had baby-gros and you used them day and night (some were obviously more like night-wear)

    Now we have sleepsuits that we buy and it gives the impression they can only be used for night so we also buy proper clothes for daytime.

    One big con if you ask me and James was in them all the time until it got warmer - unless we were going somewhere special and then we'd dress him up.
