It is no secret that the phys­i­cal con­di­tion and mood of a per­son depends on the qual­i­ty of rest. What can we say about a small child who, day after day, learns the world and dis­cov­ers the pre­vi­ous­ly unknown. Active­ly mov­ing dur­ing the day, dur­ing sleep, the baby draws strength for new achieve­ments. A sig­nif­i­cant role in this process is occu­pied not only by rit­u­als before going to bed, a cozy bed and a soft pil­low, but also by com­fort­able sleep­ing clothes.

A rich assort­ment of styles, mate­ri­als, col­ors intro­duces into a stu­por and makes it dif­fi­cult to make the right choice. Since chil­dren, espe­cial­ly babies, spend most of the day in a dream, choos­ing a paja­ma set becomes a respon­si­ble mat­ter for par­ents.

Cri­te­ria for choos­ing chil­dren’s paja­mas:


Paja­mas for a small child should be made of hypoal­ler­genic mate­ri­als. Skin itch­ing and oth­er aller­gic man­i­fes­ta­tions will harm the health of the baby. And the next day will pass accord­ing to the fol­low­ing sched­ule: an appoint­ment with a doc­tor in a chil­dren’s clin­ic, then a vis­it to a phar­ma­cy, and pos­si­bly more than one, in search of the right med­i­cine. Wast­ed time and mon­ey, spoiled well-being and mood, and there can be no talk of a rest­ful sleep at all.

Prod­ucts must have cer­tifi­cates of qual­i­ty and com­pli­ance with GOSTs. The use of nat­ur­al mate­ri­als in the man­u­fac­ture reduces the occur­rence of aller­gies to a min­i­mum. The addi­tion of syn­thet­ic mate­ri­als is allowed, but not more than 5–10%.

Fas­ten­ers (zip­pers, but­tons) or dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments (rhine­stones, beads) on paja­mas must be sewn in or secure­ly attached. Then lit­tle explor­ers and lovers of try­ing every­thing by touch and taste will not be able to tear off and swal­low small details.


As men­tioned above, for chil­dren it is bet­ter to choose paja­mas made from nat­ur­al mate­ri­als. In addi­tion to hypoal­ler­genic prop­er­ties, such fab­rics absorb mois­ture well, retain heat and allow air to pass through, allow­ing the skin to “breathe”. The most pop­u­lar types of knit­ted fab­rics for sewing paja­ma sets are:

cool­er — Thin and light cot­ton fab­ric. Clothes made from a cool­er are elas­tic (stretch­es per­fect­ly in width), durable and pleas­ant to the body. Things can be safe­ly stored fold­ed — the mate­r­i­al prac­ti­cal­ly does not wrin­kle.

foot­er — dense and wear-resis­tant knitwear (you can not be afraid of the appear­ance of spools and scuffs). At the same time, the lin­ing is smooth on the out­side, and its inside can be made with a small fleece or in the form of loops.

rib­ana — elas­tic mate­r­i­al that keeps the shape of the thing and does not “shrink” after fre­quent wash­ing. Prod­ucts made from rib­ana are very soft and del­i­cate to the touch.

inter­lock — dense and smooth jer­sey, which is great for chil­dren’s sen­si­tive skin.

The choice of mate­r­i­al depends on the sea­son. So, in win­ter it is bet­ter for a child to pur­chase a paja­ma set made of warm foot­er. This is espe­cial­ly true for babies who do not like to sleep under the cov­ers. In the sum­mer heat, it will be con­ve­nient for chil­dren to fall asleep in paja­mas from a cool­er or inter­lock.


Com­fort­able sleep of the child depends on the right style of paja­mas. Sets of a free cut do not con­strain move­ments. A stretchy elas­tic band should be insert­ed in the belt of trousers or shorts, which will not squeeze the tum­my, but also will not allow the low­er back to be exposed. Elas­tic neck­line and soft cuffs on the sweat­shirt will not rub the skin and will not cause dis­com­fort.

Paja­mas made of shorts and T‑shirts or T‑shirts are more suit­able for a hot sum­mer night. In win­ter, it will be more con­ve­nient to fall asleep in a mod­el con­sist­ing of trousers and a sweat­shirt. Knit­ted shirts with long or short sleeves are avail­able for girls.

• Col­or spec­trum

The choice of col­ors depends sole­ly on the pref­er­ences of the par­ents and, of course, the child him­self. From ear­ly child­hood, babies form per­son­al col­or sym­pa­thies, but it is bet­ter to opt for calm clas­sic tones — this will help active chil­dren to quick­ly set up in a peace­ful mood before going to bed.

Often plain paja­mas are dec­o­rat­ed with bright prints. A child will get ready for bed with great plea­sure if his paja­ma set is dec­o­rat­ed with the image of his favorite char­ac­ter from a car­toon or a fairy tale.

The Utenok brand pro­duces chil­dren’s paja­mas from nat­ur­al safe mate­ri­als, whose qual­i­ty is con­firmed by cer­tifi­cates of com­pli­ance with the stan­dards of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion, Belarus and Kaza­khstan. A rich selec­tion of mod­els will allow you to choose a paja­ma set for any sea­son, and a vari­ety of col­ors and prints will delight lit­tle fash­ion­istas.
