Absolutely yes I would. He's only little once and there's other battles that are more important. He already likes picking out his own clothes and I love that he's growing his own little personality and dependence.

No, we (kids included) always wash new clothes before wearing, and always have.
DSS gets eczema and dust makes it bad enough to split and bleed. And DSD just likes my laundry powder and always has
I personally don't mind what my kids wear, so following on from my previous posts and in answers to some of the comments here about letting kids dress how they want, I have no issues with that or with kids being kids. In fact I'd love my ds yo ask to wear a Spider-Man or batman costume. He just won't / doesnt.
For me, it's that I prefer to wash clothes before my kids wear them, due to chemicals, formaldehyde and dyes etc on the fabrics, plus, I have no issues with kids wearing pj's to the shops or out, except that they get dirty in playgrounds and malls etc, and pj's are for bed. Bed to me needs to be clean at all times. I don't like dirty pj's in bed, especially not in my kids beds.
If I had enough pj's for them to wear one pair out and the other to bed, then that would be fine, but I dont. I normally have 2 in the wash, one is usually wet because ds has wet through his nappy, and one in the cupboard.
I would probably let my DS wear that particular PJ outfit as you have in your situation OP. Only if he was really insistent about it though (in other words, it wouldn't be my idea). Like many parents, sometimes I make allowances to keep the peace
I'm another who insists on washing new clothes before wearing, but I'd let DS sport something new if it was worn over the top of his existing clothes.
Once again, I'm saddened that a nobody random from the general public thought it was their duty to give their two cents to try and bring someone else down. RUDE!
It is saved the tantrum totally!
DS saw some spiderman Pj's at target the other day when we were looking for a Birthday present for his friend, I couldn't afford both so we left without pj's the trantrum was horrendous!
For sure! I let me children do all sorts of wild and crazy things that I judge adults for doing...like wearing PJs in public
I don't understand how the old lady even knew they were pjs! For me, I'd totally let my kids put them on straight away. I insist on washing new clothes before wearing, but over clothes would be fine.
