There are few parenthood battles as universal as getting kids ready for bed. There’s whining, stalling, arguing and a heaping helping of negotiation. And while we can’t offer a fail safe solution, having a pair of pajamas they love to put on can help.

Sliding into a pair of soft and cozy pajamas is a solid way to start the transition into bedtime. And if our little ones are any indication, there’s no such thing as too soft. Their favorites (and ours too) are made from natural, breathable fabrics with plenty of stretch and without itchy tags.

And kids pajamas aren’t just for bedtime. Slow weekend mornings mean hanging in your jammies well into the morning. Whether they’re spending most of their days building forts or running around begging you for more snacks, these comfortable, soft pajamas will help make things a little easier for them—and you too, mama.

To cut through the clutter, we’ve rounded up some of the best kids pajamas out there. From high-quality fabrics and fun prints to clever designs that ensure they won’t grow out of them in two weeks, read on to find our faves!

Best kids pajamas

Burts Bees Baby Pajamas

Burt's Bees Baby

Burt’s Bees 100% GOTs certified organic cotton pajamas come in tons of gorgeous colors and patterns for newborns through size 7. The affordable and oh-so-soft line is also a go-to for holiday family jammies. Prices start at $14.95

Kyte Baby Toddler Pajamas

Kyte Baby

Come for the award-winning sleep bags, stay for the uber soft (and oh-so-adorable) pajamas. The bamboo jammies from Kyte Baby are fantastic for any kiddo, but particularly great for little ones who run hot or struggle with sensitive skin. They come in a wide variety of fun patterns and available up to size 10.

Old Navy pajamas

Old Navy

There’s no better value out there than Old Navy jammies. Even at full price (which no one has paid ever), they’re inexpensive. They wash well, come in a ton of rotating prints and styles and can last well beyond just one kiddo.

Clover Pajamas


From their colorful custom prints to their supremely soft signature fabric, Clover pajamas are a favorite for kids and parents alike. The sets feature printed labels (so no scratchy tags to bug them) and the tops are designed with snaps at the shoulder to make putting them on complaint-free as well. Available in sizes 0-3 months—5/6T. Prices start at $30

Hanna Andersson

One of our all-time favorite brands for durability, style, and customer service, Hanna Andersson’s iconic pajamas come in tons of organic styles in sizes for newborn to size 14 to swoon over. And we swear their pajamas are magic—they seem to grow with your little one, fitting season after season! Prices start at $33.



There’s one major requirement for kid pajamas: They must be durable enough for play. We love that these are not only well-made with interlocking knit organic cotton, but it also fits true to size after washing and shrinking. Available in sizes 6 months-10 years. Prices start at $48

Monica + Andy pajamas

Monica + Andy

Monica + Andy’s (gorgeous) collection is designed for moms and kids by moms with kids, and we love it all. A brand that’s known for their adorable prints, their dreamy organic cotton sets are super soft and perfect for sleep, play and everything in between.

Magnetic Me pajamas

Magnetic Me

We originally fell in love with Magnetic Me’s game-changing baby clothes which swap annoying snaps with convenient magnets making diaper changes a breeze. But we have to say, their pajamas are a home run too! The secret? They’ve hidden a smart magnetic fastener at the shoulder to make putting them on and taking them off as comfortable and easy as possible! The fun patterns and styles are made from super soft modal and fit babies through size 8. Prices start at $44.

Little Sleepies

Little Sleepies

With a super-dedicated fan base, snagging a pair of Little Sleepies can feel like getting tickets to a Beyoncé concert—but trust us, it’s worth the work. Their seasonal prints are always 💯and the bamboo fabric is so soft your kiddos will never want to wear anything else. (Plus there’s matching adult versions so you can get in on the action!) But that’s not even the best part. All their sleepwear from newborn through size 12/14 is designed to be extra flexible in sizing, fitting up to 3x longer than other brands. With extra length (easily roll up any extra), foldable foot cuffs on their zippies, and super stretch for longer wear they’re always money well-spent. Prices start at $32.

Aden + Anais

Yes, your favorite swaddle brand also dabbles in pajamas! The cotton two piece sets are available in sizes 12 months to 4T and just as snuggly, with comfortable cuffs and an elastic waistband that makes it a little easier to take the bottoms on and off. They come in a few watercolor inspired designs to choose from.

ShopAllPjs 2048x600


With their colorful gender-neutral basics and affordable price tag, Primary hits all the marks. Their organic cotton jammies come in tons of styles for newborn through size 12 that are sold as individual pieces instead of sets making it super easy to mix-and-match. We also love the zip-up footies which feature non-skid soles so no one wipes out on their way to pancakes. Prices start at $12.

Tea Collection Pajamas

Tea Collection

Season after season, Tea Collection nails it with the most adorable patterns and prints. Tailored from breathable cotton, every style keeps them cool and content with a snug fit that hugs just right. Their various styles are available in sizes newborn-16. But here herein lies the magic—Tea collection gives back a portion of its profits to charities to ensure a better world for kids everywhere. Prices regularly start at $43, but currently they’re offering some as low as $10 during their Back to School sale!

Lake Pajamas


We’ve loved LAKE pajamas for ourselves for ages, so treating our kiddos to a set for twinning is a no-brainer. Like the adult version, their Pima cotton sets (which come in short and long versions for sizes newborn-12) are ridiculously soft, luxe and made to wear all day, every day. Prices start at $42.

paper cape pajamas

Paper Cape

We’ve only got one complaint about the timeless, heirloom jammies from Paper Cape—they don’t come in our size. Made from super soft Peruvian Pima cotton (which is arguably some of the most divine cotton on the planet), their Classic Pajamas are what Sunday morning dreams are made of. And if you really want to knock that holiday card out of the park, Paper Cape offers embroidered monogramming with three fonts to choose from.

peregrine kids pajamas


From party dogs to paper planes, magic crystals to modern art, we’re completely head-over-heels in love with Peregrine Kidswear’s pajamas. The super cool printed jams are all made from bamboo viscose making them as soft as they are stylish and keep little ones perfectly temperature regulated. Prices start at $37.

Boden Twin Pack Pajamas


We’re obsessed with these pajamas that are made of stretchy ribbed cotton jersey that’s been brushed on the inside to make them soft against the skin. It’s perfect for little ones with sensitive skin. Like everything else from Boden, these high-quality jams seem to last forever and even come in two-packs to mix and match. Prices start at $40.

Mori Pajamas


Launched in 2015, the UK based Mori delivers supremely soft designs for littles (and their mamas!) in a signature cotton fabric that we can’t get enough of. Their pajama sets come in a wide range of muted colors and gender-neutral prints for babies through size 6.
