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.

Once you survive the newborn stage of your child and start to catch up on your sleep, there are a few items we just could not live without during the infant stage of our babies.   Now, every mom is different and probably has a different top 5 list but this is just a guide to help get you started for the infant stage of life for your baby.   This is the stage when their little personality comes out and they giggle at anything.

  1. An exersaucer :  many companies make different versions.   This will be your life saver while you shower, cook a meal, you name it.  Babies love it!
  2. A baby play mat: again a lot of different companies make this item.   Be sure to find one that will wear well because you could be throwing it in the wash a lot if your baby spits up 🙂  Baby play mats are great for tummy time and learning to roll over plus most versions have mirrors which just makes a baby giggle!
  3. Pack N play : These are a life saver when you need to put the baby down.  They are great for the road, naps, and even a little alone time for your little one.
  4. Comfy baby pajamas:  did you really think we would have a top 5 list without mentioning comfy baby pajamas 🙂  These are a must to go along with your bedtime routine. 🙂
  5. Bumbo seat:  This was given as a baby shower gift and thought it was crazy looking.   Turned out to be a hit!  Nice thing about the Bumbo seat is it’s lightweight and can go anywhere with you!  Helps babies build their upper body strength too.

Enjoy this time in your babies life.  It goes by in a blink of an eye and the next thing you know they are tweens 🙂

What is something you could not live without during your child’s infant stages?  We would love to hear from you and help any new moms we can 🙂

As parents, we are always trying to teach our kids something new and how to survive in this life.   Because if there is one thing we know as parents, life is tough and doesn’t always turn out the way we plan.  But as I teach my kids right from wrong, I decided to take a step back and I realized my kids teach me things everyday.   Here are the top 8 things my kids taught me lately.

  1. That NOBODY knows EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING.  (My kids tell me this all the time, do you think they are talking about me 🙂 ).
  2. That it’s okay to be wrong as that’s how we learn.
  3. That there is no such thing as being too polite. You can never say please, thank-you or excuse me too often.  Adults seem to forget this in our busy everyday lives.
  4. That a smile is the simplest thing you can do to truly brighten the day of someone else.  Nothing is sweeter than your child looking up at you and smiling for no reason at all!  Try it on a complete stranger today.
  5. You can be happy if you choose to be happy.  Simple, but sometimes very hard to do in real life.  Choose to be happy in the moment.
  6. Having breakfast food for dinner is okay and I must admit, sometimes just easier.
  7. That life is a journey not a sprint.   Sit back and enjoy the ride!
  8. Having a pajama day at home and watching movies is great family time!

What have you learned from your kids lately?

Buying baby clothing is a must for any new parent, but don’t get overwhelmed.   My Baby Pajamas has put together a Top 5 list of items you will need the first few weeks after your baby is born.   During the first few weeks of your new baby’s life your baby doesn’t need a big wardrobe.   There really is only a few top items you will need and you will need multiples of each because babies tend to have a lot of unplanned accidents 🙂

My Baby Pajamas Top 5 List of clothing items every newborn baby should have:

1. Baby pajamas and footie pajamas:  When babies are newborns they sleep a lot.   They can sleep anywhere from 18 – 20/day in their first couple weeks of life.   So if you were sleeping this long, you would want to be comfortable.  You should also do the same for your baby.   Always take the time of year in consideration when buying baby pajamas.   When babies are under one year old, we always recommend footie pajamas because babies do not sleep with blankets.

2.  Bodysuits or Onesies:  These are something you can never have enough of.   Many parents forget to buy them because let’s face it they are not cute and really no fun to buy but you will need them.  Make sure you have plenty on hand and also make sure you have different sizes, 0-3 months will only last a couple of weeks before your baby has outgrown them.

3. Gowns or Sleep sacs:  These are hard to find but you will definitely need them the first couple of weeks of your babies life.   Changing diapers in the middle of the night is a snap in the sleep sacs.  We highly recommend them for the first couple of weeks.

4.   Socks:   Many moms forget to buy socks for their new baby.   Plus, they always seem to get lost in the wash machine so buy plenty 🙂  When you are out running errands or just sitting at home (in the middle of winter or with the A/C blasting) babies feet get cold.   A good test is feel your baby’s feet, if they feel cold or cool to the touch, put some socks or slippers on them.

5.   Well, number 5 isn’t really clothes but we feel it’s very important for all new babies to have and to have plenty of them.  It’s a blanket.   A blanket can serve you many purposes.  Blankets will become your best friend.   Blankets can be used to protect your baby from the sun or weather outside.   You can swaddle your baby in a blanket which helps newborns sleep better.   Blankets can also be put on the floor or rug for some much needed tummy time.   Just remember not to put a blanket in with a baby while they are sleeping unless your baby is swaddled in the blanket.

Footie pajamas have been a popular Christmas gift for decades. There’s just something about them that harkens to childhood. They evoke memories of carefree days and conjure up feelings of comfort and security. It’s no wonder that they top the list of popular holiday gifts, even for grown-ups!

PJ’s themselves date back to at least the 17th century. Numerous cultures have claimed responsibility for their “invention.” In fact, night clothes have been around for thousands of years in some form or another. After all, everyone needs something to wear to bed, and wearing one’s good clothing for sleeping has never been practical.

Pajamas as we know them today probably originated in Persia in the 1600’s. Prior to this, night clothes were mainly utilitarian and functional rather than fashionable. Persians were known for their fine taste in fabrics and garments. It’s little surprise that they were probably the first culture to apply fashion concepts to night wear.

They soon became popular, first in Britain and then in other developed countries like the United States. A typical man’s garment for sleeping consisted of loose fitting pants and a matching, loose-fitting top. This style is still highly popular today, both with men and women as well as children.

Over the years, the night-time garment branched out in many directions. Nightgowns became popular with women, and at times during history even men wore “night dresses.” Today, of course, consumers can find shorts, t-shirts and tank-top style PJ’s in addition to the traditional pants-and-shirt styles.

Footie pajamas were born in the late 1800’s. They were originally designed and marketed as sleepwear for babies. They were sometimes referred to as “blanket sleepers.” This is because they were intended to provide babies with the comfort and warmth of a blanket.

They were (and still are) much safer for babies than blankets for sleep time. It’s a well-known fact among parents that blankets and babies are a bad mix. Blankets can lead to strangulation and suffocation accidents and possibly result in infant death. At best, they rarely stay on baby for more than a few hours.

Footie pajamas solved the problem of keeping infants warm at night without posing the hazards of a blanket. They are still recommended today for infants and babies, not just for sleeping but for daywear as well.

Footie pajamas soon became so endeared that companies began to manufacture them for older children too. Eventually even adults could purchase them. Few things offer the level of both physical and emotional night time comfort than a pair of footie pajamas.

Infant footed PJ’s are hot sellers year-round.  However, Christmas is the biggest time of year for retailers of footie pajamas for kids and adults. Kids Christmas pajamas in footed varieties top wish lists when it comes to nightwear. In fact, kids Christmas pajamas of all different styles (footed or otherwise) are always popular for holiday giving to children.

PJ’s make some of the best Christmas gifts because they are highly practical. Everyone needs them, because everyone wears them. That doesn’t mean that kids Christmas pajamas have to be utilitarian and boring.

If you’re buying for the children in your life, you can choose bright colors and unique and exclusive designs. Choosing something fun makes the gift memorable and exciting in addition to being practical.

Purchasing footie pajamas can sometimes be tricky. Footie pajamas (sleepers) for babies need to fit snugly but not tightly in order to ensure baby’s safety. If you are unsure about sizing, purchase a garment that’s on the large side so that baby can grow into them.

Older children can safely wear footie pajamas that are a little bit on the big side, especially if they are gathered at the ankle. The legs should not be so long that the foot-portion drags on the floor, though, as this can cause accidents.

At My Baby Pajamas we know the importance of a good nights sleep.  But do our kids know just how important it is to get a good nights sleep?  We have talked with several sleep experts and even some of the experts have written  a few articles for our blog but we would like to share one website with you today.   This website is for kids, parents and teachers and it teaches the importance of sleep to children.  The website is Sleep for Kids and it was created by the National Sleep Foundation.

The National Sleep Foundation is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to improving public health and safety by achieving understanding of sleep and sleep disorders, and by supporting education, sleep-related research and advocacy.

Sleep for kids is geared toward school age children and teaches the importance of sleep to them.   The website has many different sections for your child and you to go over together.   There is “Why we Sleep”, “How Sleep Works”, “Sleep and You”, and it also has a section of games and puzzles for kids to do on their own.   Sleep for kids also has a section for just Parents and Teachers and goes over many different sleep questions and sleep disorders.

If you and your children are not getting the recommended amount of sleep at night (an 8 year old requires 10-11 hours of sleep), this is the website for you.   This is something you and your child can do together.

My Baby Pajamas believes everyone deserves and needs a good night sleep!  Sleep tight tonight!

Please forward to anyone you know who can benefit from this website: Sleep for Kids.
