    When it comes to keeping your little one comfortable and safe, finding the perfect sleepwear is essential. Pajamas for kids come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s important to know which features to look for when shopping for the best baby PJs. In this article, we’ll explore the five essential features of the perfect baby PJs, as well as where to get them. 

    Key Features to Look for When Buying Baby PJs

    1. Comfortability

    It is well known that 60% of kids experience eczema before the age of one. To protect your little one from the nightmare of itchy skin, dress them in pajamas that are made from soft, breathable fabrics early on. The best fabrics for kids' pajamas are cotton, bamboo, and fleece. These materials are gentle on your baby’s skin, and will help keep them comfortable throughout the night.

    Additionally, make sure that the PJs are the right size for your baby – not too big or too small. Not only will this give room for movements in sleep, but it will also provide the feeling of security that children need.  

    2. Durability

    The last thing you want is for your baby’s pajamas to fall apart after just one wash. Not only does that hurt your wallet, but it also burdens our planet with more fabric waste! Look for sleepwear that is made from durable materials and will last through multiple washes and wear.

    Typically, organic cotton tends to be more long-lasting than regular cotton, making it an ideal choice for durable fabric. The reason for this is that during processing, regular cotton is exposed to harsh chemicals which can damage the fibers. In contrast, organic cotton is processed without such chemicals and is often handpicked, leading to stronger and more resilient fibers.

    3. Safety

    Safety should be among your top priorities when it comes to selecting baby PJs. Make sure the pajamas are flame-resistant and snug-fitting to reduce the risk of accidents. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends that pajamas for children be flame-resistant. Additionally, opt for PJs with enclosed feet to ensure that your baby’s toes are covered and protected.

    4. Easy access 

    Look for pajamas that have easy access for diaper changes, such as snaps or zippers at the bottom. This will make it easier to change your baby's diaper without having to remove the entire pajama. This is also an aded bonus for the mobility of your baby, allowing them to move around more freely.

    5. Style and design

    As a parent, you want your baby to look their best, even in their sleep! Look for baby PJs that come in fun and stylish patterns and colors. This will lighten the mood of your little one, and get them excited for bedtime.

    Bonus! Add a soft blanket for a restful sleep 

    A soft, lightweight blanket may be the best gift for little ones and their mommies! A comfortable blanket provides additional comfort for infants, making it perfect for cuddling.

    If you are looking for a blanket that soothes baby's soft skin, The Wee Bean's Sensory Fleece Blanket is made for you! This 100% polyester fleece blanket has a plush minky dot backing that promotes sensory stimulation.


    When it comes to finding the perfect baby PJs for your little one, it’s important to look for those that are comfortable, durable, safe, stylish and have easy access. Get pajamas that are the right size for your baby and made from soft, breathable materials such as cotton and bamboo. With these five essential features in mind, you’ll be sure to find the perfect baby PJs for your little one.
