10 Best Baby Pajamas Reviewed
1. Simple Joys by Carter's Baby Girls' 2-Pack
Comes in a pack of two
Double enclosure to ensure that nothing is exposed
Cute details make these sleepers great for daytime wear
The Simple Joys line sizing differs from the Carter's line
The one thing that all babies do is sleep and play. So keeping them comfortable throughout the day and even into the night is a priority. Not only is comfort a priority but being able to easily change their diapers is too. This two-pack of sleep and play PJs are great for both. They are super comfortable with soft cotton blends and then a zipper that goes from the chin to the ankle. The zipper makes for easy changes and keeping both parents and baby happy.Read more
Fleece is a material that's naturally comforting and soft to babies which helps to soothe and calm them. These pajamas are a great option for fussy babies who need a little something extra in their sleepwear.
Understandably, footie-style pajamas that have actual monkeys on the feet aren't enough to sell you on how high-quality they are, but we think it's a great place to start! Simple Joys by Carter's also has five other neat designs to choose from, all so much cuter than the last. While we can't help you on that front, we can help you by describing a bit about what makes this set so unique. You'll notice right off the bat that these sleepers have a snap across the front as well as a zipper down the front. These serve a multitude of purposes; for starters, the zipper down the front allows for much more ease when changing clothes as well as while changing diapers. The simple snap across the top ensures that your baby won't be able to play with the zipper, but also helps to keep it in place and enclosed so that it doesn't start to creep down, leaving the top open and exposed.
These sleepers are also fleece, which makes them the ideal winter option as your baby will be kept warm and toasty during those months when there's a significant chill in the air. The quality is really in the details when it comes to sleepers such as these. Carter's is known for their great quality all-around, but these sleepers are the cutest thing for any little girl, complete with ruffles and adorable footie additions.

We all love those days when we can just sit back in our pajamas and lounge around, right? Surprisingly, babies do, too! This Sleep 'n Play by Gerber provides babies with all the comfort of a pajama set while still allowing for plenty of motion so that they can go straight from the crib to the floor for some fun while crawling around. This Sleep 'n Play allows them the versatility to go exploring and be ready for a nap in no time at all, which is helpful when you have a fussy baby or one who has no patience for outfit changes.

Footie-style keeps babies warm
100% cotton for optimal comfort

Snap, snap, and snaps! These pajamas are the cutest designs. They make going to bed even seem cuter than normal. Not only are they cute, but they are functional as well. The design feature snaps that go from the ankle to the chin. The snaps make it easy to be able to change their bottom without having to completely undress your little one.

These sleepers are intended for a slightly loose fit which allows for a bit of breathability and they also have a front-snap design that makes diaper changing much easier. With six different pairs to choose from at a great price for the quality, this is a wonderful way to give an expecting parent a great baby shower gift or to start your own sleeper wardrobe if you're the one who's expecting. These sleepers are intended for a slightly loose fit which allows for a bit of breathability and they also have a front-snap design that makes diaper changing much easier.
The detail that went into designing each set of these sleepers shouldn't distract you from the overall quality, but it's definitely something to be noticed. These are the perfect gift and will last quite some time for first-time parents. The sizing options are very specific and since each sleeper has a bit of room in it, there's a lot of stress that's taken off the table when it comes time to make a decision. Even if your baby grows quicker than anticipated, they should still be able to use these sleepers for some time.
The cuteness of these sleepers simply can't be denied. They even have tiny feet that coordinate with the theme of the sleepers, such as a sneaker design for the sports-themed and tiny dinosaur feet for the dinosaur-themed PJs. Adorable attributes aside, Carter's has created a pair of sleepers that's 100% cotton, slightly stretchy, and completely dream-like for your little one.
5. Hudson Cotton Suit 3 Pack
Comfortable and very roomy
Sizing is accurate
Lower snaps allow for easy changing
Great for year-round wear
Traditional and understated
They shrink considerably in the dryer
Is there anything cute than seeing your little one is a cute union suit? Not too many other pajamas are as cute as these union suits. Each of the three that come in the pack has a coordinating design to the others. This is perfect if you have multiples or if you are a big fan of coordinating outfits throughout the day. They are a lightweight cotton construction which is perfect for sleeping and playing.Read more
With ribbed sides, there's not much chance of these sleepers twisting and moving around on your baby and they'll be glad to have some breathability at their feet rather than being completely closed-in. These sleepers are a great choice for babies who are a bit stocky and need a little more room than your average baby. The roomy legs allow for much more comfort and space when changing diapers or clothing.
If there's one thing that we love, it's options. Hudson Baby provides plenty of design options for their sleepers but what we really loved was their sizing. You'll be able to specify the proper size for your baby anywhere between newborn and one-year-old, with four more options in between. With finding the correct size being a common issue for parents, it's nice to know that these sizes are certain and precise. Sizing aside, these sleepers are excellent for spring and summer months when it's not quite as cold outside because they're open at the bottom. The snap closures can be found at the crotch of these sleepers in order to aid in quick diaper-changing.
These cozy two piece PJ's are made from 100% cotton. This means they're soft and comfy but they need to be washed cold and dried properly to keep them from shrinking.
6. Burt's Bees 2-Pack Romper
100 percent organic cotton for maximum comfort
Sizing options for preemie babies
A bit more roomy to allow for growth
Comes in a set of two

The organic cotton gives the skin the ultimate breathability and it ideal for babies that may have more sensitive skin than others.Read more
These sleepers are made with 100 percent organic cotton just as all of Burt's Bees Baby sleepwear options are, which is great--especially if you are seeking sleepers for a preemie baby. Since their skin is often very sensitive, this all-natural cotton is really a dream when it comes to ensuring your baby's comfort.
This is the last Burt's Bees Baby product on our list but it's certainly not the least of all of them. As well as a great gift, this set would also be perfect for those winter months when your baby needs a bit of extra lovin' as far as staying warm goes. These sleepers are designed in the traditional snap-style, where the opening is found between the legs of the sleeper with a closed-foot bottom.
This design is perfect for little boys and does allow for a bit of extra room in the way of growth and moving around goes, which takes less stress off of deciding on the right size for your baby. Speaking of size, Burt's Bees Baby allows sizing from preemie all the way up to 9 months, making them perfect for small babies. It's not often that you find a preemie size option when it comes to baby clothing and it's usually something you have to search pretty hard for, which is why we were thrilled to add this to our list. Not to mention, you get two sleepers and two baby caps in this set! These sleeper sets have hit their mark as far as comfort, sizing, and durability goes, and even their pricing exceeds what we expected.

Suitably meets fire safety standard
Comes in nine different designs

100% cotton and easily cleaned
They can become worn-in very quickly
To help keep the little ones even more comfortable this pair of pajamas has a tagless label.

This protects their delicate skin from becoming irritated from the tag rubbing them during the night. It is a great feature that helps keep them even more comfortable.Read more
Not only are these sleepers everything a parent could want in sleepwear for their baby, but they're also priced incredibly well. Safety and comfort is this brand's number one goal and that mission shines through in the quality of their sleepwear. Additionally, you won't find any sort of tag in these sleepers because Leveret knows how irritating they can be to a small baby. It's the little things that really count!
Let's get into the fun stuff, though: The footie style of each of these sleepers has the one thing that every parent looks for, especially if they have a very mobile baby -- rubber feet! The tiny rubber grips on the bottom of these footie PJs is just enough to provide traction and grip while your baby is walking on any type of surface. This is great for those who are just learning or trying to maintain their balance and would do wonders in conjunction with a soft walking mat. We love the fact that Leveret has addressed that their sleepers are a bit snugger in order to comply with fire safety standards. This is a detail that many companies miss in describing their clothing but it's something we can relate to since safety is our number one mission as well.
Leveret has a wonderful reputation when it comes to clothing for babies and with all the extra details this sleeper features, we're not surprised. These sleepers are 100% cotton and allow for a very generous stretch while offering a choice of nine different designs for your precious baby boy.

The pants have a soft elastic band that's completely enclosed in order to hold the sleepwear in place for even the most restless of babies while the matching shirt is snug and breathable. It would be unnatural for Burt's Bees Baby to provide sleepwear that wasn't as natural as it could be which is why we were thrilled to find out these pajamas are 100 percent organic cotton. With 40 different styles to choose from, they're changing the game as far as eco-friendly choices go.
These sleepers are actually award-winning for their unparalleled softness and comfort as far as children's sleepwear goes and you might notice a bit of a different design style with these as well. Rather than being done in the traditional footie style, these are two-piece sleepers that feature ribbed openings at the wrists and ankles in order to keep the pajamas from twisting around or rising up. With 40 different styles to choose from, they're changing the game as far as eco-friendly choices go.
We bet you didn't know that Burt's Bees designed baby sleepers! In addition to the amazing lotion and balm products from the brand's baby line, these pajamas are yet another thing that Burt's Bees is doing just right.

Criteria Used for Evaluation
Adults have enough trouble sleeping when they are uncomfortable and babies are extra fussy. Having a constant rotation of sleepwear in your baby’s wardrobe can be beneficial to them as they grow and develop. Their bodies go through plenty of things in the process of growing and pajamas are prone to all of it.Having a constant rotation of sleepwear in your baby's wardrobe can be beneficial to them as they grow and develop. Their bodies go through plenty of things in the process of growing and pajamas are prone to all of it. Having clean sets ready every few days will help to keep their hygiene at the top of its game and will also encourage good behaviors. It's a great way to ensure that your baby is comfortable all the time, whenever they're ready to go to sleep, and will serve as a layer of protection for their skin while they do so. All of the PJ's on our list are made from extra soft, plush fabric for baby's optimum comfort.
Sleepwear isn't just a fashion statement or a cute way to dress up your baby for bedtime. It also provides a barrier between your child and their environment, meaning that when it's cold outside, they'll be kept warm, and when the air conditioning is on, they'll be comfortable, etc. Pajamas help to cover much of the body while sleeping in order to provide that necessary comfort needed to actually fall asleep and remain asleep. Additionally, once your child gets up in the morning, they'll still feel comfortable and will be wearing temperature-appropriate clothing so that there's no rush to get dressed immediately. After all, there's nothing like hanging out in your pajamas for a while after waking up--even babies love doing it!
Another factor that we considered were materials. We wanted to make sure that each pajama set on our list was made of nothing but the highest of quality materials. Most of the items on our list are all made of cotton or cotton blends. This is to make sure that your child’s sleepwear is extra soft, warm and cozy. Whatever you are looking for in your child’s sleepwear we are sure you will find something on our top ten list. We wanted to make sure that we found something suitable for every family’s need.
60% of infants are rocked to sleep. This is perfect for newborns but can form poor, attached behavior in older babies if it's continued for too long.
If your little one is having trouble sleeping through the night, gently rousing them right as they fall asleep and letting them drift back off will help to teach them independent habits. Once you've swaddled, rocked, fed, and laid them to bed, gently tickle their feet or rub their tummy, let them wake for a moment, be drowsy, and then fall back asleep on their own.
Other Factors to Consider
When coming up with our list we knew that there were many things we were going to have to carefully consider when choosing the right ones for our list. We tasked our research team and made sure that we found the best pajamas for your little ones. One major thing that we looked into was quality. We wanted to make sure that every manufacturer on our list had a wonderful reputation as far as customer service and merchandise went. Some brands on our list that you’ll recognize will be Gerber and Carters. There are a few other manufacturers that aren’t as well recognized but have just as high ratings and customer service reviews.
We also wanted to make sure that safety was considered. We made sure that every item on our list met the flame-retardant guideline, meaning that each pajama on our list has a snug fit. Snug fit for newer parents or a caregiver who might not be familiar with the way is snug fit is better for pajamas rather than loose and baggy. Loose clothing has to be treated with a flame-retardant chemical in order to pass child clothing standards which is something that we did not want to include in our top ten list. With tighter pajamas and clothing they don’t need to be treated with chemicals since there is little extra fabric.
Another reason why parents should choose snug fit sleepwear is to avoid hazards like suffocation or the feeling of being trapped in clothing if your baby is tossing and turning throughout the night. This is something that we took into careful consideration when choosing our top ten list. You will find on our list every item is a snug fit clothing. However, that being said with snug fit clothing, sizing can be a bit tricky. It is always recommended that because the snug fit might be a bit smaller to get the next size up so that your child will be able to wear it for a little while instead of their usual size.
Frequently Asked Questions
q: What is the best way to wash these?
Many pajamas are prone to shrinking in the dryer, so it’s best to run them through the washing machine, and then hang-dry or tumble on the lowest setting.
q: Would toddlers be able to fit in these pajamas as well?
The sizing on many of these is specifically newborn to 9 months, with some going up to 1 year--therefore toddlers would fall in the next sizing bracket.
q: If my baby is small for his age, would you suggest sizing down rather than coordinating sizing with his age?
Yes. Since the sizing on many of these is loose rather than small, sizing down is probably the better option. There are several options on here that run a bit small, however, and those can be found by reading the “cons” section of each product. For those, we’d suggest keeping the accurate size in accordance with your child’s age.
q: Does organic cotton make a difference?
It might not seem like much, but organic cotton is much more noticeably soft than traditional cotton. This means that your baby will have softer sleepers and will naturally be more comfortable.
q: If I get these as a gift can they be exchanged if the sizing is off?
For most of these companies, yes. You’d need to contact the company first in order to arrange an exchange through Amazon but it shouldn’t be an issue.
q: Do all the footie pajamas have rubber grips on the bottom?
Two of these sleepers do have rubber grips. Leveret sleepers are known for them, so that’s where we’d suggest looking if that’s an option for you.
