I completely agree. I can wear them for quite a few hours when up and about, but not to sleep in for very long at all.
Try starting with a short and thin neoprene. For example, a neoprene swimsuit, which is actually a thin sleeveless short wetsuit. Once your body gets used to it, you can add length and thickness.
Or some variant with a front zipper and leave it open the first night, later closed in half and finally completely. Some swimrun wetsuit.

Likewise. Perhaps start with a front zip suit or one with a really low neck, but later in the year after the weather has cooled.
