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.

How to Help your Early Bird Toddler Sleep In

by Heidi Holvoet, PhD,
sleep parenting expert at
Baby-Sleep-Advice.com

Saturday morning, no alarm clock to urge you to work, no packed lunch
to be made for nursery school … aahh sleeping in is so wonderful and
rewarding … But that was before your typical toddler
came along.

Because if there’s one thing many toddlers have in common, it’s waking
up early. Even the very good sleepers – going down at 7pm and nicely
sleeping through – have a good chance of waking anywhere between 5am
and 6.30am.

And unless you are an early bird yourself this probably won’t be your
favorite time of the day.

Luckily there are a few good techniques to help your toddler sleep a
bit longer.

First of all, let’s have a look at what can cause him or her to wake up
at that time.

5-6am is still night for most people and everything is but it
is also the time when some things start to change. And that’s the kind
of change that can easily wake your child up. Even more so because this
is a moment when sleep is typically light.

Things to look out for and avoid to keep your toddler from waking up:

  • Is his bedroom getting lighter towards morning? Try to keep a
    constant light throughout the night. Darkening blinds and blackout
    shades combined with a dim night light are ideal. If you don’t have
    those blinds and want to do a quick test: stick aluminum foil to the
    windows for great darkening.
  • Any noises starting to sound? This can be one family member getting
    up early, or simply going to the bathroom. Or maybe the neighbors are
    waking up and starting their day? Or the street may be coming to life
    … Often these are sounds we don’t really notice as an adult anymore,
    but they can be enough to keep waking your child up.
  • Diaper wet?
    A very wet diaper quickly becomes uncomfortable and an easy wake up
    cause. Try a different size or brand to keep your toddler dry for
    longer. Cloth diapers can be a good solution too.
  • Too hot or too cold? During the night, many bedrooms tend to get a
    bit cooler. Others warm up. Or your child may have twisted and turned
    and uncovered himself. A constant temperature in the room and constant
    covers are ideal to avoid waking up early. The perfect pajamas and a
    toddler sleeping bag are ideal for this and have helped many a baby
    sleep through and sleep in.
  • Hungry?
    Night feedings are probably a thing of the past but hunger can make a
    toddler wake up early. To avoid this, start with not offering breakfast
    at 5-6am when he wakes. Top up his food intake if you suspect
    a growth spurt or just a hungry phase … Do this by adding a little
    bit to his meals and snacks spread during the day (not right before
    bedtime).

There is a difference between waking up and getting up. Toddler hood is all about setting boundaries to help
your child understand the world around him. And to teach him what is OK and what isn’t. Demanding sleep doesn’t work. But it is reasonable to agree with your toddler that want him to stay in bed and be quiet until say 7 or 8 am.

Here’s how:

  • Talk to your child: discuss the morning wake-ups and explain to him
    that mommy and daddy, and grandma and grandpa, … all sleep until 7am.
    Explain that he/she is a big boy/girl now and can also do that. Just by
    staying in bed quietly until it is OK to get up.
  • Use a toddler alarm clock: a toddler
    alarm clock
    makes it child’s play to know what time it is:
    time to keep sleeping or time to get up. The really nice ones have a
    simple picture that switches at your chosen time. Countless toddlers
    happily learn to sleep in with one of these.
  • Work with a sticker reward chart: a colorful sticker on mornings when
    he/she stayed in bed nicely. Be flexible: getting up even just 15
    minutes later on the first days is definitely worth an encouragement
    sticker …

Helping your early bird toddler sleep for longer may take a bit of
patience and time. Take a relaxed attitude, stick to
being confident and consistent with the above ideas and you’re
all set to see your weekend mornings much improved …
