Kids Pyjamas: What Should You Consider When Buying
Fussy children not willing to go to bed, or waking up repeatedly in the middle of the night? Their pyjamas could be the culprit. Children under the age of 12 need at least 9 to 12 hours of sleep a night, and what they wear makes a big difference to their sleep experience and comfort. If you’re at your wits’ end on how to get your child to sleep through the night, don’t worry. We take you through the 3 most important things you should consider when buying kids’ pyjamas.
This is by far the most important factor you need to consider when choosing pyjamas for your children, especially if they have sensitive skin. You need to ensure that no harsh chemicals have been used when producing the fabric because they can harm your children’s skin. Soft, breathable fabric that doesn’t feel warm and itchy on the skin is especially important for kids who can get overstimulated.
Organic and sustainable fabrics like organic cotton, modal and bamboo make for ideal kids pyjamas due to their lightweight and breathable material, especially in tropical climates.
As every parent would know, kids can get super messy. To make your life much easier, choose a material that is easy to wash. Pyjamas made of modal and bamboo are also much more resistant to shrinkage than cotton, so your kids will be able to wear the pyjamas for longer.
Style & Comfort
Kids can and will be very fussy about what they wear, especially about something that they’ll have to wear for long periods of time – like their pyjamas. That’s why you should get very familiar with the style of pyjamas that are suitable for their comfort and preference. If they prefer sleepshirts or onesies, they might not be entirely comfortable in full pyjamas sets and vice versa.
When buying kids pyjamas, be sure to check the stitches, buttons and other trims to gauge whether they sit well on your child’s skin. Poorly stitched clothing can have loose threads and tags that can cause itchiness for your child.
Drawstrings can be tricky for kids, especially for younger kids. Kids can tend to move around a lot in their sleep and the drawstrings can get caught around their limbs or even their necks and cut off circulation. For babies and young children, it is best not to get pyjamas that have drawstrings.
Kids grow so fast right before your eyes. You might be tempted to get them pyjamas that are a couple of sizes larger, so you don’t have to keep replacing them too often. However, pyjamas that do not fit properly can affect your child’s sleep experience greatly. Too much loose fabric can leave your child’s skin exposed to the room’s elements, leaving them too cold. At worst, it can even get tangled in their sheets and cause accidental smothering.
Ensure that your kids’ pyjamas are snug fit, for the size that they are. Measure your children frequently to be able to accurately gauge their size when shopping by yourself or online. Shop for good quality clothing that is made of fabric that does not shrink in the wash, or degrade with frequent washing.
