Hi all,

Where can I get nice summer sleepwear for a reasonable price? I found some nice ones but I'm sorry $40 for pajamas is ridiculous IMO.

So any hints on where I can get some nice ones?

TIA

We have in the past spent $30 on one pair from Myer for DD.

This year i got her a pair from Kmart, never again, she was sweating and i think it was the crap material.

We then got her target PJs, two pairs for $20 and a single pair on sale for $11, perfect for three pairs of PJS, just wished that i could mix and match the top and bottoms as i have a tall girl who doesnt fit in tees that match the size pants.

spotty.

Cotton on usually has nice cotton sleepwear but it is usually a form-fitting style.

I like fresh, loose cotton for summer PJs so will be watching this thread with interest.

I cut down last years winter pj's for my boy. So turn the bottoms into shorts, and long sleeved into short sleeved.

How old are your children? In summer time when DS was a baby, I had him in just a cloth nappy and a singlet because it would be too hot otherwise.
Now I have him in a pair of nice satin boxers and a singlet.

You can find some nice matching boxers and singlets at Best and Less, Big W, target, etc.
Ebay sometimes has got some sellers selling good kids clothing as well.

Also, this Tuesday is going to be "click frenzy" day. From 7am to 7pm, over 150 retailers are slashing their prices online by 50% or more. Keep an eye out. www.clickfrenzy.com.au

I was looking for cotton pjs for my four year old boys. The polyester/cotton mix from Best and Less etc and the polyester boxer shorts are just too hot.

I found cotton ones in DJs but they were too expensive.
So, I have decided to buy a pattern and make the shorts and just use a cotton tshirt for the top. The pattern is 10 dollars and then I can make whatever colour I like. The pattern also does long pants for winter pjs too.

We love the cotton Gymboree pjs - but you have to buy ahead due to the season differences. I usually pick them up for $10 a pr - and they last thru both my boys:)
Gap do nice ones too - try ebay (US).

I found plain cotton at Best & Less but it was a country store not one in Sydney???

I agree its very hard but I have found boys one at Baby Gap online at the kids warehouse websites for under $20 and Paul Frank as well....I have to search though, I don't like cotton/ poly mix either....

I like Sprout PJs from Myer for the 1 year old.
Target for the 4 year old - PJs are my exception to the 'no licenced characters' rule.
