Between how quickly kids grow and how cute little pajama sets are, it can feel like you’re constantly on the hunt for new sleepwear. The problem is that even the
best kids pajama brands only offer so many styles, so it’s hard to find sets that are new and unique. However, with a bit of internet digging, you can find some really fun, cozy, and quality sets from brands that are on the rise.
As much as everyone loves Carter’s, Cat & Jack, and Hanna Andersson pajamas, they’re so popular that it’s sometimes near-impossible to find a set in your kiddo’s size or, even if they do have their size in stock, it seems like everyone’s’ kids are sporting the same styles. Also, not all brands are created equal in terms of quality. Kids wear their pajamas every night so they go through the washer and dryer
a lot, and sometimes it’s worth spending a little extra money to get a set that’s durable and won’t end up with holes in it after a month.
You can tackle many, if not all, of these issues by shopping smaller, under-the-radar brands. There are so many places that only use organic fabrics, have a wide variety of sizes in stock, or offer styles that are totally different from the larger brands. Here are a few great places to start.
