Underoos! They’re baa-aaack.

I guess I’ve got super heroes on the brain, because first it was the Wonder Woman Havaianas that I found this past week, and now it’s….wait for it…Underoos. Underoos! The same ones you may remember from your childhood.  I had no idea they even still existed, did you? Kids can choose from a limited number of retro-fabulous brief/tank sets featuring the likes of Batman and Robin, Superman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman and Super Girl, all to help them fly into bed each night, and perhaps use their super human strength to stay in bed a little longer on weekend mornings. The girls’ sets...

Cute, cozy, durable pajamas for kids: Our tried and true favorites. Let the snuggle party begin.

According to that rascal of a groundhog last week, it looks like winter will be sticking around the Northeast for six more weeks. I’m pulling out my Silver Linings Playbook, and choosing to see it as an extension on snuggle parties with my youngster. And everyone knows that warm, comfy PJs are an absolute must for proper snuggling.  So here are 6 cute and cozy — and above all, durable — pajamas for kids I love, from baby up to school age. We love that they are built to last (no holes in the knees after two wearings, yay!) and because...

A new line of cute, trendy kids’ clothes from Korea by way of London

Like maybe some of you, my three-year-old has two small but separate wardrobes: The inexpensive, easily replaceable outfits he wears to nursery school; and the few higher quality, trendy kids’ clothes I save for the days he’s not painting without a smock. To add to the latter list: the darling styles from the new online kids’ clothing shop Ebabee for kids up to age 6. Ebabee offers a beautifully curated collection of cute, comfy, and slightly quirky clothing from Korea for trendsetting girls and boys–though sadly for us, the little boys’ options are more limited. There are plenty for girls, though, and if I had a daughter, I’d...

Banish bedtime blues with katebaby’s colorful organic kids’ pajamas

We are loving all the bright colors and graphic patterns we’re seeing in kids fashion this winter, and now the organic kids pajamas from katebaby are making bedtime fun. They’re so stylish that we’re tempted to let our kids wear them outside the house as real clothes. They are that cute.   These organic cotton kids pajamas run from newborn (with the footies) to 4/5 years old (in the tee-and-leggings version). My babies were always pretty high on that growth chart from the doctor–like 80th percentile big–so even though pajamas are supposed to be worn pretty snugly, I would have needed to order a size...

AXL Brand organic infant clothing: For those who like the baby to shine more than the clothes.

We’re always so excited to find a new designer making stylish, modern clothes for babies and kids, because as we’ve preached for years now, there is more to baby style than appliquéd sequin puppy dogs playing baseball. (Sorry, puppies.) That’s why I’m excited to share my latest discovery, AXL Brand, a new line of simple, but beautifully constructed organic infant clothing out of San Francisco. These pieces are impeccably made in the USA with soft, 100% cotton fabrics, and the styles are modern and clean, with not a single crazy appliqué in sight. In other words, the clothe don’t toddle into the room before the...

A baby shower gift with bite

Babies are warm and cuddly and thinking about them helps us conjure up images of teddy bears and pillowy clouds. Well, unless you actually have one and you know that in reality, babies have more bite than we give them credit for. So for the next baby shower, opt for something with some edge, like these shark baby pajamas from Black Wagon. After all, aren’t babies really at the top of the food chain in a way? Plus, like sharks, babies have the ability to fascinate and frighten us all in the same breath. –Eva Hatley Shark Footed Coveralls are...

Fly! Fly to sleep, baby!

I admit, I can’t resist those special little baby layette items that force you to take, oh, 647 photos or so of your baby in rapid succession on your smartphone. How totally adorable is this pilot baby sleep set? (No need to answer. I know!) The 100% soft cotton sleep suit is cute on its own with the little stars and stripes on the sleeves, but then they add faux black lace-up “boots” and whoa. So fun. The finishing touch is the little baby cap with the 40s-era goggle print that would look great with the jammies or not....

May the Force be with you. And may it put you to sleep at bedtime without a fight.

What happens when you combine some of our favorite, super soft kid pajamas and our favorite geeky movie franchise? Let’s just say the Force is strong with these jimjams. Clearly I’m excited to learn that one of our favorite play clothes brands, Hanna Andersson, now has new line of Star Wars sleepwear for kids for kids that are just as awesome as you would expect.That is, if you know about their super soft, 100% organic cotton without all those itchy stitches and appliques.  These Star Wars pajamas fit the bill in both Long John and Short John versions, with durable, silky cotton Ribbknit...

Organic kids pajamas that might bring more pleasant dreams

Why my kids have an obsession with sleepwear and pajamas I’m not entirely sure, but yep, obsessed pretty much sums it up. Over the years, I’ve learned to invest a little more in their pjs because I find the cheap stuff stretches and loses elasticity and pills and generally doesn’t hold up for long at all. Especially considering how often my kids want to wear them. I’m so happy to find the brand new line of kids pajamas–er, loungewear–from Skylar Luna. Made by super eco-conscious California designer Wen C. Reese, you’ll find both summer-ready short sets and long pajama...

Kids pajamas from Tea Collection lead to very sweet dreams

My kids have a thing for pajamas the way most kids have a thing for race cars or princess crowns. Each night is an exercise in patience as I wait for them to pick the very perfect pair, then argue about whose is the snowflakes and whether the striped ones can be worn yet another night in a row. Fun for the whole family! As pajama connoisseurs, I can tell you that an all-time favorite pair hailed from one of Tea Collection’s winter offerings, so I’m thrilled to see them come out with so many more styles this spring....

Bedtimes are not enchanting. These children’s pajamas are.

I have a lot of words for our current putting-of-the-kids-to-sleep experience. With a bed-jumping preschooler and a bedtime-book-ripping baby, “magical” is not one of them. Or at least it hasn’t been. But maybe that’ll change with the right sleepwear. This enchanting line of children’s pajamas by Noeuf–or “pyjamas” consdiering these babies are European–seems like everything dreams are made of. Made with organic cotton that looks as soft as the night is long (or as long as it should be, dear children who wake before the dawn), the prints are whimsical–and ooh-aah-adorable. Just look at those fairy wings, sketched right onto the...

This season’s forecast: circus animals and a good chance of peacocks

Yesterday was the most absolutely perfect early fall day, but today? This gray sky is reminding me of what’s to come. I don’t know about you, but I get a little grumpy in the wintertime. By the end of winter, I’m a lot grumpy. The Scandinavians get it right by designing signature happy prints to brighten up their long winters. And thanks to the online boutique VyssanLull, we have some of the best eco-friendly, Scandinavian kids clothing at our fingertips. Plastisock is one of the many awesome designers at the shop and I am digging their new fall clothes....

Cotton nightgowns: The holy grail of children’s sleepwear

For as long as my oldest daughter has refused to wear pajamas, I’ve been on a search for a cotton nightgown. And if you’ve got a little one like mine, then you know that they are pretty much impossible to find. So I was thrilled to discover that the cotton nightgowns I found while browsing at Mini Boden are exactly what I’ve been looking for since, oh, 2006. These long-sleeved nighties are sweet and simple, featuring an empire waist and absolutely no licensed characters anywhere. I’m sure my daughter would pick the pink hearts, but I’m secretly willing her...

Sleep, my little valentine. Sleep.

There’s no shortage of Valentine’s Day attire for little girls (like the Kideko heart pajamas we found this week) , but when it comes to boys, it’s pretty slim pickings. And I get it. Dressing a boy in a rose-colored heart shirt is a tough sell, even if there is a Spiderman on it too. But the adorable Love Pirate sleep sack from CMP fave Baby Burrito is the perfect festive nod to Valentine’s Day for both baby boys and girls without smothering your little one in pink. Made from organic cotton and bamboo, and featuring a simple heart and cross bones, this...

Wearing 77 hearts on your sleeve

Valentine’s Day or not, I am so taken with the new heart pajamas from Kideko, it’s almost a shame that they’re designed to be worn in the dark. The color is wildly vibrant in person, reminiscent of European brands like Kit+Lili and Plastisock. And the cotton jersey is so soft and stretchy and bedtime-ready, it’s not surprising they come from the same Australian company whose funky kids’ bedding we adore (and also happens to be on sale for up to 70% off right now). If you’ve got a boy, check out the other sleepwear styles including the fun blue...

The kids’ pajamas to wake up to Christmas morning – and every morning after that.

I know friends who have a holiday tradition of giving the kids a new pair of pajamas every Christmas Eve. It makes for fantastic photo ops on Christmas morning — but then I visit in the spring and those poor kids are still walking around in candy cane stripes with elves on the chest. For alternative, I am looooving the Kung Fu style Pajamas from mom-run Douglas & Cocoa. These soft, slouchy, sophisticated Asian-inspired pajama sets come in patterns like a forest plaid or a red and green flower print that look festive for the holidays without feeling theme-y....

Tea to keep the kids warm at night

The nights have become downright frosty which means I’m scrambling to see if any of the kids’ pajamas from last winter still fit them; given that they seem to grow a foot a year, it’s likely that they’ll need new threads. Some of the nicest new cold-weather sleepwear I’ve been eying for them comes from CMP fave Tea Collection. Their Suite Sleeper pajama sets are made of super-soft, brushed-on-the-inside pima cotton; with its natural fibers, the kids won’t feel like they are sweltering under petro-chemicals. And with this kind of thickness, they won’t wear out at the knees before...
