Pajamas

What are your favorite brands for pajamas? I have been buying Carter's cotton pajamas but am tired of constantly having to buy them due to them shrinking so much. I've tried the polyester ones too but after several washes they become scratchy.

    We have only bought Carter’s for my son’s pjs and never had an issue. We dry all his clothes on low heat though

    I buy carters either direct or the amazon version of Carter’s. I always size up pajamas though. They’re required by law to be form fitting and tight if they’re cotton OR they have to be treated with flame retardant. Polyester isn’t flammable so they will be less tight and non treated too.

    I put her in a 2T in pajamas. Everything else she wears is an 18m. She's only 23 pounds and is around the 40th percentile for height so it's not like she's big. But maybe drying on low heat will stop the shrinking.

    Pjs have always been a size bigger for our son in carters in comparison to his other clothes (especially the footed pjs). But the clothes shouldn’t keep shrinking after each wash..

    Hanna Anderson is great. Old Navy can have good stuff too, although the sizing takes a little more guesswork (but I find it shrinks less). Haven't bought Cat and Jack PJs specifically but I find their clothing runs on the larger side and also doesn't really shrink and is very soft. As a general rule for whatever reason I have also found that buying clothes and PJs in the "boys section" have lasted longer and been more durable. Also slightly larger.

    I second all of the Hanna Anderson recommendations. Especially if you plan to have more than one since they last forever. But buy from the sale rack because IMO I shouldn’t be spending more $$ on my daughters pajamas than I do on my own. Lol.

    Hanna Anderson work great if you have got a skinny baby. But for those chunkers, like mine, I prefer Burt’s bees.

    I buy the one piece winter pajamas from Carter’s but light pajamas from Target or The Children’s Place.

    Hanna Anderson or Burt's Bees.. both organic cotton, which is really important for sensitive skin babies.

    Our favorites have been Gap (they hold up great and don’t shrink), Kickee Pants (they’re super stretchy so easy to get on our squirmy baby) and a UK brand called MORI (super soft, sweet prints and non-footed options for summer).

    Kickee Pants are amazing, Burt’s Bees, Hanna Andersson

    I've never had anything from Carter's shrink. I dry on low heat only. Old Navy is a different story 😑

    I second all the other posts mentioning Gap and Cat & Jack @ Target. I do buy 1 size larger though because with twins, I have to make things last a while

    Hannah Anderson 100%! Amazing quality (organic cotton), stay tucked in throughout the night due to longer tops, don’t stretch out during the night...just awesome! Look for sales, but worth the price and they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Burt’s bees is also great but if your baby has a belly like my younger son does, it won’t stay tucked in.

    We love Hannas! They really hold up. We also love Carters and the Cloud Island brand from Target (those are our favs and I’m so bummed they stop at 9 months). Garanimals are also awesome, and the sizes are somewhat between the other brands, so they’re great for when you’re between.
