A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for all of us, but for children it is vital as good sleep assists in their development and their ability to have a happy and healthy life. Astonishingly, 69% of children experience one or more sleep problems a few nights or more during a week. Over time, this naturally begins to affect their general well being and their ability to stay awake during the day, to learn new things at nursery, and to study at school.
Is is generally agreed that children from 1 to 4 years require between 11 and 14 hours sleep per day, whilst children from 5 to 9 years require between 10 & 11 hours. There are lots of things that parents can do to aid a good night’s sleep for their child and we give lots of suggestions in our popular new blog which has a wealth of information for parents. From tips on how to order the correctly sized childrens pyjamas & cotton nighties for your child & how to wash and care for them, to tips on promoting a good night's sleep, and how best to decorate your child's room in order to encourage sleep. It's a great place for parents to start, and we also provide links to other websites which we feel may be of help to you in solving your children's sleep issues.

A great place to start however is a really comfortable pair of 100% pure cotton childrens pyjamas or 100% pure cotton nighties that will allow your child’s skin to breathe freely at night & will prevent them from waking up too hot or too cold. If you have struggled to find a pair of childrens pyjamas or a cotton nightie that provides your child with an interrupted and comfortable night’s sleep, then we encourage you to give our childrens nightwear a try. Our childrens pyjamas and cotton nighties have a very loyal following and we believe that the super soft cotton interlock fabrics and stretchy cotton rib at the neck, wrists and ankles makes them one of the best styles available. They may be a little more expensive than high streets brands but we’re confident that once you’ve tried them, you’ll feel that they were worth every penny. We stock a great range of boys cotton pyjamas in funny designs and bright colours, whilst our ballerina girls cotton pyjamas & our girls flowers and hearts cotton nighties are firm favourites all year round. Don’t forget also that our childrens cotton pyjamas and cotton nighties will wash and wash and wash, and we know of many customers who have handed their Sleepyheads childrens nightwear down from child to child, and our pyjamas and nighties still keep going!
One final tip! All of our nightwear is sized to meet British Standards measurements and you will find that it is much roomier than many styles found on the high street. Our sizing already provides room for growth, and so for this reason, we recommend that you do not order up a size unless your child is particularly tall for their age. If you need any assistance at all, please give us a call with your child’s measurements, and we will be more than happy to help you choose the best size.
Happy Shopping! Love from Sleepyheads x
