Quality Baby Pyjamas

For the best night’s sleep, dress your baby in comfort and warmth

New-borns will spend most of their time sleeping – it helps them to grow and become strong. It is very important that you create a safe and comfortable sleeping environment and dress them in the appropriate pyjamas or baby pjs.

Dressing your child in quality baby pyjamas helps to control their body temperature and reduces the risk of SIDS. Pyjamas made from natural and organic materials are also an effective way of reducing the symptoms of eczema.

Things to look for when choosing baby sleepwear

Choosing the best pyjamas for your child can be a daunting task; especially for first-time mothers. Baby Bedding is here to make your job as easy as possible, which is why we gather to most reliable children’s brands.

Here are some things to consider to help choose the most suitable sleepwear for your child:


Comfort is one of the most important things to consider. If your child is comfortable, they will sleep undisturbed, which means you will too! Try and select designs which do not have buttons, pointy zips or prickly material.


A baby’s skin is much more sensitive than adults, so it is important that the material is soft. Synthetic fabrics can be rough on the skin or cause abrasions and sometimes contain harmful chemicals which cause irritating skin conditions.

Most parents prefer baby pyjamas made of natural fibres, such as cotton, because they are machine-washable and preserve colour and softness for longer.


Make sure baby pyjamas fit well. Loose clothing can fall off during the night, leaving your baby exposed to the cold and tight clothing is restricting, which could cause the baby to choke.


Comfort and safety should take priority, but you also want baby pjs that look cute and cuddly. Baby Bedding stocks baby pyjamas from international designers in a range of styles and colours. There are shorts and singlets for boys, dresses for girls and uni-sex designs for all babies in various patterns and prints.

Extra Outfits

Make sure you have additional sets of baby pjs stored away, which you can change your child into when others are soiled or in the wash. On this note, it is also recommended that you select materials that can be machine-washed and dried to save you time.

What is the difference between winter and summer baby pyjamas?

In winter, we recommend that you dress your child in long sleeves and pants, preferably in a thicker material or with fleece lining. In the cold, many parents put socks on their children but they can fall off if the child wriggles or kicks. Winter jumpsuits have booties attached, keeping your baby’s feet warm all night.

In the hotter months, make sure you select material which is thinner. Cotton is generally preferred because it allows the child’s skin to breathe naturally and prevents over-heating.

Can’t I just put my baby to sleep in regular clothes?

Many mothers ask us why they need to buy baby pyjamas, when they could just dress them in comfortable or warm clothing.

While you can actually dress babies in regular clothes, baby pjs double as an effective parenting method for helping children sleep better at night. Baby pyjamas help the child recognise when it is time to sleep. Children will eventually associate the pyjamas with the comfort and warmth of bed, and they will become automatically tired when you dress them; helping to develop a healthy sleep routine.

This will help them (and you) sleep better at night.

To improve the effect, we encourage you to select a fun design which helps the baby differentiate their pyjamas from other pieces of clothing.

Choosing pyjamas to minimise SIDS

It is very important that your child is appropriately dressed when you put them to bed. There are simple directions which all parents should follow to reduce the risks associated with SIDS.

  • Make sure the pyjamas are not too tight, especially around the neck
  • Make sure they are not too loose – they may fall off during the night and expose your child to the cold
  • Do not overdress the baby – they may overheat
  • Avoid baby pjs which have hanging strings or ribbons that could strangle them, or buttons and other objects which can be pulled off and swallowed.

For more information regarding safe sleeping for babies, contact your nearest SIDS and Kids office between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday on 1300 308 307.
