When you have a growing child, you have to get new sizes of pajamas every year. And the problem with kids pajamas is that many of them have flame retardants in them. Because you definitely don’t want your kids to catch on fire when they’re asleep. Versus when they’re awake. Right? Yeah… Anyways.
I try my best to get organic cotton pajamas for my daughter, like these ones from Underables. Then I found out about Sweet Peanut, a Canadian baby and kids clothing company based out of Vancouver. Here’s what they have to say about their choice to make safe, toxin-free clothing:
“While studies have shown that there is a low migration of flame retardant chemicals from fabric to skin, there is speculation that the most widely used chemicals cause genetic abnormalities, as well as damage to the liver and nervous system, and promotes the growth of cancerous tumor. As such, the safety of its use in the manufacturing process is in question.
Not only is our 100% organic cotton clothing GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. It is never chemically treated and never will be.
Additionally, we use azo free and non hazardous dyeing materials in our printing process of our bright and vibrant colors.”
I am so happy that we have an amazing Canadian company committed to the safety of our children!
We got a couple of pajamas to try out, and my daughter loves ’em! At five and a half, the size 6 pajamas are a great fit, but long enough so that she can get a good amount of wear out of them.
The fabric is so soft and cozy! These striped pjs are incredibly soft and I just want to cuddle her all day in them! (Plus they’re on sale right now, so you can get an awesome deal!)
When I saw the “around the world” hot air balloon print summer pjs, I knew they were a must. What a gorgeous print! And again the fabric is super soft and comfy.
We also got a long set in pink with white swirls on them that are just as lovely as the other two. We’ve now gone through several washes with all 3 of them, and they are holding up nicely, and still super soft and cozy.
These pajamas are supposed to be pretty snug-fitting to compensate for the fact that they have no flame retardants in them. I’d say they fit pretty true to size.
Sweet Peanut has lots and lots of other clothing for babies and toddlers, so be sure to check out their selection. It’s a great opportunity to get some good quality, toxin-free clothing and support a local Canadian company!
