Toddler pajamas are often designed to be snug-fitting for safety reasons. Snug-fitting pajamas reduce the risk of catching fire, as they are less likely to come in contact with open flames or heat sources. Loose or baggy pajamas can be more hazardous in this regard. The tight fit acts as a safety measure to provide a layer of protection.
Natural fibers like cotton and bamboo are excellent choices. Cotton allows air circulation and absorbs moisture, keeping babies comfortable. Bamboo offers similar benefits with added hypoallergenic properties. Look for open weaves or knits that promote ventilation.
Yes, baby clothes can be washed in the washing machine but with some precautions. Use a gentle cycle on cold and avoid harsh detergents. Don't use bleach. Wash darks separately as hot water can cause fading. Check labels and follow garment instructions. Turn items inside out to protect decorations on baby clothes. Use a laundry bag for small items like socks so they don't get lost. Line dry or flat dry to preserve fabrics.
