A good night's sleep for your child is a treasure beyond measure. Although it may seem like a trivial choice, the type of pyjama you choose for your little one can have a monumental impact on their quality of sleep. In this blog post, we’ll go over some of our top tips for choosing pyjamas for your child, including fabric type, sizing, and more.
Choose a High-Quality Fabric
The most important aspect to consider while looking for kids clothes is fabric type. When it comes to choosing a material, durability and comfort are key. Opt for fabrics that are gentle on your child’s sensitive skin and can withstand the inevitable wear and tear that kids' clothes go through.
Organic materials are always a great choice that will benefit not only your child but also the environment. Organic cotton and bamboo fabrics are grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals, which will help protect your child’s skin from irritants. Organic fabrics also contribute to a healthier planet by supporting other sustainable farming practices. By choosing kids PJs made from organic materials, you’re providing your child with a cozy and safe sleepwear option while also promoting a greener future for them to enjoy.
All Zipster Children’s PJ sets are made from super soft and stretchy 95% bamboo and 5% elastane. We believe that bamboo is the best fabric for your little one due to its lightweight and breathable nature. Bamboo fabric is also hypoallergenic and thermoregulatory making it a great all-year round fabric that is great for children with sensitive skin. To read more about why we love bamboo click here.
Longevity: Invest in Quality
Children under the age of 12 need between 9 and 12 hours of sleep every day. Considering this is up to half their day, it’s important to invest in quality materials and craftsmanship. Spending a bit more for good quality PJs will provide your child with more comfort and also extend the lifespan of their pyjama use. Look for well-constructed stitching, reinforced seams, and durable closures that can handle repeated washes and late-night adventures. There are plenty of quality children’s PJs that put your child’s needs first without costing a fortune.
Look for Machine Washable PJs
Parenting already involves a fair share of laundry, and the last thing you need is clothing that requires special, time-consuming care. When shopping for kids pyjamas, go for machine washable options that can handle messes and bedtime oopsies.
Choosing the right size
While some companies suggest buying children sleepwear that is form fitting, this can cause a lot of discomfort to some kids. On the other hand, pyjamas that are too loose can pose a safety hazard. We suggest choosing a size that is snug enough to keep your little one safe while also leaving a bit of room for comfort and growth. Kids also grow super fast so choosing a slightly larger size will allow your child to grow into them and save you money in the long run. If you are ever unsure, most companies provide size guides that can help you in finding the perfect fit. You can also always check product reviews to see if other customers have sizing suggestions.
Choose a Design They'll Love
Kids can be picky about what they will and will not wear. Involving your child in the shopping process and allowing them to select designs they like, can help ensure they are willing to wear what you buy whilst encouraging their self-expression. Whether it's vibrant prints, whimsical animals, or their favorite characters, allow their personality to shine through their sleepwear. At Zipster, we offer a large range of kids pyjamas to make sure they are able to find something they love!
Buy for the Season
Just like with their daytime wardrobe, it's important to rotate your child's sleepwear with the changing seasons. Choose pyjamas that are made for the current weather to ensure your child gets a good night's sleep. Opt for warm, long-sleeved sets in the colder months and breathable, cooler options in the warmer ones. As previously mentioned, organic fabrics such as bamboo are thermoregulatory, allowing your child to wear the same set cross seasonally.
Match with Mum and Dad!
What's cuter than twinning with your mini? Matching or complimentary sets for parents and children can make bedtime even more fun and memorable. Zipster offers a range of designs that are available in both kids and adult sizes, so the entire family can enjoy bedtime in style together.
