Kicky Pants Bamboo Lotus Links Footie Pajamas

Footed pajamas make just about everyone wax nostalgic. They were a part of most childhoods and evoke fond, warm memories. They conjure up feelings of security and comfort. Moms and Dads love buying footed pajamas so that they can pass on these cozy feelings to their own little ones.
Baby pajamas have changed over the years. They still provide that cozy, secure feeling that babies crave. However, like many other products, they’ve improved with technology. These changes make parents’ lives easier and afford peace of mind when it comes to baby’s comfort and safety.
These three features can help make parents’ jobs simpler when it comes to outfitting baby in footed pajamas:
1) Zipper/snap closures: Many baby pajamas of yesteryear closed with buttons. We know now, of course, that buttons can pose choking hazards to infants.
That’s why most of today’s footed pajamas have snap or zipper closures. They present a much smaller choking risk because they are less prone to fall off in small pieces (like buttons) and end up in baby’s mouth.
Both zipper and snap closures are much faster to undo and re-fasten. As most new parents discover, it can be a challenge to keep a squirming infant still during a diaper or clothing change. The faster this chore can be accomplished, the safer it will be.
Parents should look for zipper or snap closures that run the entire length of the garment, from neckline to foot. This makes removal less of a hassle, whether changing baby entirely or just doing a diaper change. It minimizes the movement required to wrestle the child out of the garment, meaning less discomfort for the child.
2) Non-skid foot grips: This feature is important for older babies, particularly crawlers and toddlers learning to walk. Footed pajamas without non-skid grips can cause a child’s feet to slip on a hard or smooth surface, like the floor.
Non-skid grips made up of child-friendly sticky fabric. The fabric is adhered to the soles of the pajama feet. It helps to keep the child’s feet from slipping. This feature helps to ensure his safety as he explores his world and develops his motor skills.
3) Flame resistance: This feature is something that parents may not have had when they were children. In past decades dozens of infants died annually in North America in house fires. Some of these deaths may have been prevented had their night clothes had the ability to resist flames.
An infant’s crib can become a death trap in the event of a house fire. The immobile child is confined to her crib, helpless to escape on her own. Flame-resistant PJs can increase the chances that an infant will survive a house fire and avoid injury while waiting for rescue.

Parents should always make sure that footed pajamas are fitted properly. They should be snug, but not tight. Ill-fitting PJs can cause discomfort for an infant. Too-large ones can cause baby to become entangled and injured during sleep or play.
Parents can tell that footed pajamas fit well if the child’s leg can be fully extended comfortably within the garment. It’s too small if baby’s foot pushes it to the stretching point. The garment is too big if the pajama leg dangles or the child’s foot doesn’t reach all the way down into the garment’s foot.

Moms and Dads love buying footed pajamas so that they can pass on secure, cozy feelings to their little ones. These three features can help make parents’ jobs simpler when it comes to outfitting baby in footed pajamas.
