Do parents always lead by example?  Probably not, but we really should.  If parents are going to talk the talk then we really should walk the walk with our kids.  Actually, this holds true with anything.  Our kids look up to us and as they get older they are watching our every move, trust me on this one.

Today is a perfect example of leading by example:  I am an avid runner and have a race coming up in about 3 week.  Today I needed to run 6 miles for training.  This morning when I took the kids to school, I said out loud to my oldest,” When you both get home, you need to watch your brother while I go run.”  Okay, this was my mistake!  Guess what?  I didn’t feel like running today at A-L-L!  Yesterday, I thought I would help my body out and decided to do power yoga to stretch my muscles from running.   Bad idea.  I woke up swore.  I thought it would get better as I went to work and started to move around.  It didn’t.   All I wanted to do was put my Esme pajamas on, bathe my younger son and put his favorite boys pajamas on and watch TV.   This was not going to happen.  My oldest had a basketball game and my husband was going to the hockey game.  Damn!

Now fast forward to me sitting on the computer checking my emails.   My oldest comes in and asks me when I am going to go run.  Ugh!  I don’t feel like running at A-L-L.   And as I am about to tell him this, I stop and think about his basketball game tonight.   I know my husband and I will tell him to play hard and hustle.  If I tell him I am not going to run, I know he will say something to me about training for the race and playing sports blah blah blah!!  Yes, this is what teenagers do; throw everything back in your face 🙂  So I say to him, I am getting ready to go now.

Shoes are laced up and I am heading out the door, still not wanting to run at A-L-L.   But as my feet start to hit the pavement and I get into my groove…nothing.   I still really don’t want to run.  We all have our days:)  But I did the 6 miles.  Probably the worst 6 miles I have done but I did them and it felt good just to finish.

Now, it’s time to go to my son’s basketball game.   Guess what?  He’s dragging his feet to get ready.   He’s tired blah, blah, blah.   Good thing I went and ran because now I can use this as an example that sometimes we don’t feel like doing something but we suck it up and just do it.   Well, it wasn’t the best game of my son’s life but he went and played and played hard.   They lost in overtime by 1 point and they were heartbroken.  But they all played hard and did their best.  You can’t win them all:)

My Baby Pajamas Fun Facts on Pajamas

My Baby Pajamas Fun Facts on Pajamas

Did you know pajamas originated in the Middle East?   Do you know what pajama means?  My Baby Pajamas thought we would share some fun facts on pajamas.   We just love pajamas!

Fact #1: The first people to wear pajamas according to Dictionary.com were men and women in Turkey, Iran and India. The word “pajama” stems from the Persian word pae — meaning ‘leg’ — and jamah, meaning ‘clothing garment’.

Fact #2: Pajamas are defined as night clothes with loose pants and a jacket.  Jacket? Really?  That does not sound comfortable.

Fact #3: Pajamas originated as “loose drawers or pants that were tied at the waist” — therefore the terms pajama pants or pajama bottoms are redundant:)

Fact #4:  2011, US Airways flight attendants escorted University of New Mexico football player, Deshon Marman off of a flight for wearing sagging pajama pants on a plane arguing that he violated their dress code. Only a week early than this incident, a cross dressing man wearing women’s underwear and no pants was allowed to board his flight despite complaints from other passengers.

Fact #5: In January 2012, Michael Williams, a commissioner in Caddo Parish, Louisiana, proposed an ordinance prohibiting people from wearing pajamas in public.

Have a fun fact about pajamas?  Please share.  We love to hear from our customers and followers.

Don’t forget, My Baby Pajamas is having our Fall SALE.   Save big $$ on Lazy One Pajamas, At  Home Pajamas, Skivvydoodles and many more.  Plus, an extra 20% off the entire website.

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.

Let’s face it, we all have days when we start the day off doing stuff around the house and the next thing you know…it’s 4 pm and your still in your pajamas and so are your kids!!  In fact, I am having one of those days today.   So when is the pajama point of no return? Is it at noon? Or is it later in the day, say around 4 pm?   What is the pajama point of no return you ask?  Well, the pajama point of no return is when you get to that part of the day and you are still in your pajamas and you realize why get dressed because I am just going to be back in my pajamas soon 🙂

It’s summer time so why not have a pajama day with your kids.   Take the day off and everyone stay in their pajamas all day 🙂  Build forts with your kids, play board games, cook together, or make a scavenger hunt for your kids.   Whatever your family enjoys doing, make it a family pajama day.   Or maybe be adventurous and try something new as a family.  Maybe have a Lego building contest.  Just enjoy the day together 🙂  Kids grow up so fast and believe it or not they will remember the little things the most:)  Not how much money you spent on them but how much time you spent with them.  That is what matters in life.

Don’t have fun pajamas for your family pajama day…My Baby Pajamas has a great selection of kids pajamas and adult pajamas on SALE NOW!

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.
