Parents-to-be have much to prepare for when planning for a new baby. Keeping baby safe is usually a top-priority. This is why parents invest in things like car seats and baby monitors. However, parents-to-be almost never think about whether the baby pajamas that they buy are flame resistant. This, though, should be the number one consideration when purchasing baby pajamas.

Fortunately for parents, most baby pajamas on the North American market are flame resistant. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) is the governing body responsible for testing and monitoring the safety of flame resistant baby pajamas in the United States. It creates and enforces the regulations regarding the manufacturing of safe baby products, including pajamas.

The CPSC defines “flame resistant” as having the ability “to self extinguish when exposed to an open flame for three seconds”. Baby pajamas sold in the United States must be able to pass this flame test brand new, and again after 50 launderings. Garments that cannot adhere to these standards cannot be sold as “sleepwear.”

Public controversy and confusion has swirled over the years about the definition of “flame resistant”, and also about what constitutes “sleepwear”. Not every garment made for babies is flame resistant. Current government regulations stipulate that only garments specifically intended for baby to sleep in must be able to withstand fire.

New parents often assume that any item of clothing that they purchase for an infant is flame resistant. This misconception can, and has lead to tragedy. Babies have suffered serious burns and even died from being put to bed in garments that have not been treated to resist fire.

Parents need to be vigilant when purchasing sleepers, and shouldn’t confuse everyday children’s garments with flame resistant baby pajamas. Garment appearance can be deceiving: sometimes an outfit is constructed to look like a sleeper, but isn’t intended for nighttime wear. Parents should never judge sleepwear by appearance alone.

Instead, parents need to understand the difference between “sleepwear” and “daywear” or “playwear”. Garments that are labeled as “sleepwear” must, by law, be flame resistant, because they are being sold primarily for a baby to wear to sleep. Garments which are labeled as “daywear” or “playwear” are not necessarily treated to self-extinguish in a fire. A sleeping baby should never be dressed in these kinds of garments.

In spite of CPSC labeling regulations, sometimes garments that are labeled as “sleepwear” are not fire treated. It’s also possible that garments not intended for sleep may actually be flame resistant. Sometimes manufacturers simply choose to add this safety feature as a selling point.

Sometimes parents need to “read the fine print” on the garment’s label. Information about a garment’s ability to ward off flames may be located on a tag at the back of the garment neck. It may also be located on a tag somewhere inside the garment, usually on a side seam near the bottom.

The tag should contain information that clearly states whether the garment has passed the standards for being “flame resistant”. This tag is typically yellow. However, it may also be white, so parents need to look closely and read all information on the tags.

Baby pajamas and other garments manufactured in American or by American companies tend to be fairly reliable. They can typically be counted on to provide accurate information regarding an outfit’s ability to withstand fire.

However, baby pajamas and clothing manufactured by non-American companies may not be clearly labeled. This includes garments marketed by U.S. companies, but manufactured in factories outside the U.S. Be extra vigilant when purchasing these types of garments. If you can’t find a label that clearly states that the garment is flame resistant, don’t purchase it.

Life changes dramatically with the birth of a child. Suddenly you’re thrust into a world of gadgets and clothes that you’ve never had experience with before. Even simple things like a baby sleeper can be a bit of an enigma to a new parent.

Add to that the challenges of raising an active boy and finding boys pajamas that work. You definitely have your work cut out for you.

A one piece footed baby sleeper with easy open snaps is the staple of an infant’s wardrobe. However, as your son grows and becomes more active, some boys pajamas may become increasingly restrictive.

Infants begin to crawl anywhere from five to ten months old, on average. A one piece baby sleeper may no longer be appropriate once your son becomes mobile. The more active he is, the more difficult it may be to keep him in one for extended periods.

Infants under one year old, however, still need to be dressed carefully and deliberately. Finding boys pajamas that meet the needs of an infant while still accommodating the demands of little boys can be challenging.

Choosing the right boys pajamas is challenging, so start by keeping these tips in mind:

* Look for snug-fitting (but not tight) boys pajamas: Older infants need a baby sleeper that are not restrictive. Freedom of movement is critical to a child’s proper growth and development.

Infants roll, kick, flail and thrust their arms and legs constantly (even in their sleep.) Restricting this movement can actually hamper their proper growth and muscle development and coordination.

On the other hand, a baby sleeper should not be too loose either. This applies especially to sleepwear.

Loose garments can become entangled in bedding, crib bars/mattresses and even in baby’s own hands or feet. Too-loose clothing is also a fire hazard, and can be a death trap for an infant who is incapable of protecting himself.

Keeping in mind that boys are particularly active, choose boys pajamas that allow for movement but have no “dangling” parts. Stretchy fabrics are ideal because they can fit snugly but still have a lot of “give.”

Here’s a good rule of thumb: your child should be able to fully extend his arms and legs with ease. If you aren’t sure, just try on the garment and gently pull his leg out into a fully-extended position. (Point his toes if the outfit is a one-piece.)

If it’s difficult to achieve full extension, then the outfit is too small/tight. The baby sleeper should “give” without bunching or tightening in any location.

* Purchase a flame-resistant baby sleeper: A significant number of children’s nightwear on the market is treated with flame-resistant clothing. This isn’t always a given, though. Be sure to read the labels carefully on a baby sleeper to be sure.

Again, this is important because infants are unable to escape their cribs in the event of a fire. Built-in flame-resistance allows a few precious extra minutes for help to reach them before flames can do damage.

* Expect a lot of wear and tear on boys pajamas: Infants in general are active. Little boys can be downright crazy when it comes to activity level. Choose boys pajamas that are sturdy. Check seams, especially, to make sure that they are intact and tightly stitched.

* Make sure the fabric is breathable: Cotton and cotton blends (where cotton makes up the majority of the content) are best for little ones. Cotton is suitable for every season and is breathable enough to keep baby from overheating.

It is also among the softest of fabrics that you can purchase. Softness equals comfort, something that is extremely important to an infant.

Comfort is even more important when you are teaching your baby to sleep by himself. A comfortable baby sleeper helps him to feel safe and secure even when you are not in the same bed or room with him.

Life with little boys is always full of adventure and excitement. Make sure that he’s ready for all of the adventures of growing up by starting with the right pair of boys pajamas. Even simple things like baby sleeper make growing up memorable.

Articles by Blythe Lipman for My Baby Pajamas

Most parents realize the importance of preparing their child for the arrival of a new sibling. It will be a very exciting event with significant changes in her life as well as the family. There is no right or wrong way to prepare your child. The most important thing is to take the time to show and tell your child about these changes.

The following tips are some guidelines to help with your preparation.

  •  It is never a good idea to spring something new on a sibling. Nine months will seem like an eternity to a child if you start your discussions too early in the pregnancy. Depending on the age of the child, a good rule of thumb is to start discussing this event sometime in the middle of the second trimester.  If you have morning sickness, fatigue, start to show early or there are changes in your child’s daily routine, you may have to start these discussions earlier. If your child is older(5 +), she may start asking questions sooner if she does notice any changes. You will have many discussions during your pregnancy about the new baby, one time won’t do it!
  • If you are anxious about this pregnancy, be careful not to let it spill over into the discussions. It is not necessary to share all the details. Find a friend to share your nervousness with. Children should be allowed to be children and not have to take on adult anxieties.
  • Discuss this event with age appropriate descriptions. You don’t need to get into a detailed sexual discussion with a 6 year old. My parents talked about how much they loved each other and how at night when they were in bed and hugged each other real close a seed was planted in mommy’s tummy that grew into me! Maybe a little hokey, but satisfied my curiosity. If your 2 year old pats your tummy, tell her that this is the new baby and she is going to be a big sister. Show her a baby doll and talk about feeding it the bottle and changing its diaper, etc. But remember, sometimes less is best. Too many details will go in one ear and out the other. Kind of like telling your toddler to pick up her toys, brush her teeth, go potty and get ready for her bath all in the same sentence! Let your child’s age and comfort level govern your discussions.
  • Take your child with you to a doctor’s appointment and let her hear the baby’s heartbeat. Let her feel your tummy when the baby kicks. These things will make her feel like she is an important part of this upcoming event.
  • No matter what the age of your child, tell her she is going to be a “Big Sister/Brother” and how exciting this will be. Make this the big deal it is! You can even buy a shirt that says “I’m the Big Sister/Brother” and give it to your older child as a gift from the new baby when you bring her home from the hospital.
  • If your child is old enough to understand, discuss how she will be able to help mommy and daddy with the new baby. Talk about helping you feed her,(holding the bottle), if you are going to nurse, how she can help you burp the baby, help get her dressed or at bath time, etc. Try and prepare her in a positive way making her feel like she will play a big part in this wonderful event. If she is not interested, don’t push it.
  • Get a few age appropriate books about new babies from the library and read them together. You can also watch videos about becoming a “Big Sister/Brother.” Blues Clues has a video called Meet Blues Baby Brother that is a great tool to use when talking about a new baby. Also some hospitals and libraries offer sibling preparation classes.
  • If your child is older, let her help you pick out her old baby toys to give to the new baby. And talk about how she will be able to teach the new baby to hold the rattle, play with the keys, etc. Reminisce about when she was a baby. Make this event special!
  • If you have friends with new babies, try and expose your child to them. Let her see that it’s okay for a baby to cry, that you have to be gentle, that new babies take lots of naps and she won’t be able to play with the baby at first.
  • If you are going to stay overnight in the hospital, make sure your child knows who will be staying with her. This is not the time to have a new baby sitter come and help you.  If she is going to stay at grandma’s or a friends house, do a dry run. There is nothing worse than being in the hospital and getting that dreaded phone call that your child won’t stop crying and wants to come home.
  • A short time before you go to the hospital, take your child to the store and let her buy a special gift to give to the baby when she comes home. Let her take it with her if she is staying at grandma’s or a friend’s house for safe keeping. This will help her feel like she is a part and give her “big girl responsibility!
  • If you are going to give birth at home with your child there, introduce her to the midwife, doula, etc. a few times before the event. Ask them to talk with your child if she is older, show her an age appropriate book, etc. And above all, decide ahead of time if you want her in the room during the delivery. There is nothing more frightening to a child than hearing her mommy screaming in pain and being ushered out of the room. While it is a personal decision, remember it can be very frightening for a child to hear or see their mommy hurting and not comprehending that this will result in a wonderful miracle!
  •  If you are going to move your child into a “big girl bed” before the baby arrives try and make the move at least three months before the baby is born. You want to leave enough time for this new adjustment. There is nothing worse than having two children crying in the middle of the night!
  • If you are going to enroll her in childcare or change preschools, leave plenty of time to make this change. A few months at the very least. If you don’t have this time element available, take your child to the new place and introduce her to the caregivers. Visit a few times. Ask if she can stay for the morning. Too many new changes all at once will make it more difficult for the entire family.
  • It is not necessary to shower your older child with lots of gifts when the new baby arrives. One or two gifts from the baby, mommy and daddy for being a new “Big Sister/Brother” is plenty.   A pair of pajamas is a great gift!  Gifts don’t replace mommy and daddy’s love and attention.
  • It’s okay to ask grandma to help take care of your older child until you get your strength back. Once you feel better, try and do something special with your child while the baby naps. Something as simple as watching a video together while drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows will make her feel just as special as the new baby! Don’t worry, the laundry and dishes will still be there. Making your children your first priority will make for an easier transition.
  • Don’t be upset if your child is jealous and tells you to “take that baby back.” This is all very normal. Some children think this baby has arrived to replace them. Try and do one special activity with them once or twice a week. It doesn’t have to be something that takes lots of energy.  Sitting at the table and coloring together, or making a boxed brownie mix, pudding, etc. will convey the message of love. And don’t forget to ask daddy have his special time too!
  • Start a new ritual with your older child. Something as simple as cuddling with them for 10 minutes before bed each night. Reading a special book in bed…something for just the two of you to share and show your love.
  • Take a picture of your child with her new baby sister/brother and tape it to the baby’s crib as well as putting it in a frame for the new “Big Sister/Brother” to display in her room.
  • If your child is in preschool, ask her teacher to make a big deal of this new event. An activity like having all the children draw their families would be great. Send a picture of the two siblings to school for show and tell or even one of the baby’s toys or bottles to show!
  • Above all, don’t feel guilty about not having the same amount of time to spend with your first child. As you adjust to having two children and working out a special time for your firstborn, you will see that quality versus quantity is what counts most. And don’t forget to say lots of “I Love You’s!”
