Choosing Children’s Pyjamas and Dressing Gowns
When ensuring that children are warm in winter, it is equally important to make sure that they are warm enough when they are sleeping. Children’s pyjamas come in a variety of styles and choosing the right ones can keep them cosy and warm at night to ensure a good night’s sleep.
Pyjamas with long sleeved tops and full-length bottoms are ideal for the winter months. Winter pyjamas are not necessarily thick and fleecy but many styles are now lightweight enough to offer good levels of comfort. Available designs include many characters from popular culture including Bart Simpson and Thomas the Tank Engine. As these are often made from 100% cotton, it ensures that the child will not get too warm and that the skin can still breathe, helping to control the temperature.
The pyjamas are made to ensure that the child still has freedom of movement. Children move around while they are asleep and need to feel comfortable even if their nightwear has managed to wrap itself around them.
Before bedtime is another issue and a dressing gown is ideal for keeping the cold at bay, particularly after bath time. These are often made from 100% polyester, which means that they dry quickly if they get wet and that they have a good thermal rating. The simplest styles to choose are the wraparound styles with the belt fastening at the waist, as this is easier for young children to fasten themselves.
