*Above, micro is wearing one of the two-piece sets from Q by Quincy Mae at Target! I have been so impressed with this little set. Has totally held up. The exact style he’s wearing no longer available in stripe, but in a cute unisex star print here. They have a striped, ribbed set available on sale too.
I’m not going to lie: I am normally a bit of a pajama snob for my children, but I nearly always score them on sale. I find that the higher-end pajamas launder better and are more likely to be hand-down-able and so tend to make do with fewer pairs that cost a bit more. I am finding the equation a bit more difficult to justify with my son because he is a lot messier than mini ever was – he is hard on his clothes!
Anyway, today I’m sharing a range of adorable children’s pajamas, all either by higher-end designers found on sale or more affordable pairs that are too cute to pass up on (and more realistic for hard-on-their-clothes children).
+Maisonette just marked down a few pajama brands, including Paper Cape, which I absolutely adore. I snagged micro this nautical pair for summer, but I also love these bows and these flowers for girls and these for either gender. I find this brand runs a tiny bit small, and the quality is exceptional (note the message on the inside: PLEASE HAND ME DOWN!).
+I’ve never tried BabyNoomie but I know several Magpies are big fans. This tie-dye style is on sale and fun for summer. You can also get the look for less with these by Vaenait Baby. I have ordered a few pajamas from that brand over the years and they have cute, simple styles that are great for loungewear.
+Of course, Kissy Kissy is a longtime favorite for me — my top top brand for layette in terms of softness, durability, and price (not quite as expensive as counterparts but just as good if not better in quality). You can often find them on sale on Amazon — love these planes!
+Little English racer cars — $30! These are absolutely adorable. I would size up a full size in LE’s pajamas. I find their clothes generally run TTS but pajamas are pretty snug.
+Roller Rabbit has long been one of my absolute favorites for kids, but my goodness are they spend-y. The cotton is very thin but very soft, and the cut is super-snug, so again, I would size up one or even two sizes. Micro regularly wears a size 3 these days, but I would probably skip up from a 4 to a 6 for him at this point. These days, I find the prints hit or miss, but I love these palm tree ones (part of a collab with Faherty, currently on sale), these rainbow hearts (run — last pair! — extra 20% off with code YOUROCK), and this flower print set.
+Really love this inexpensive gingham shorts set from Old Navy — reminds me of Petite Plume.
+Classic blue and white stripes for $15 — can’t go wrong with these. Love this look for a little boy. The koala print pair also pulls at my heart strings since I used to call mini my “koala boy” — he was always on my hip, clinging to my shirt.
+Thought this $18 gauze stripe pajama short set was an incredible find — love the classic styling.
+Love all the florals from this Amazon brand, especially this pair with the lettuce edge trim.
+I did want to mention two pajama brands I LOVE but can rarely find on sale for children — Petite Plume, Lake, and Lila + Hayes. You can usually find L+H on sale in select styles here and there but I specifically love their shorts sets for micro in the summer. They are super soft and I kind of like the “boxer fit” on the bottom versus the usual narrow-leg style you find in shorts sets for boys. If you find them on sale, go for it! I will report back if I ever find them at a discount in a cute pattern! (Sometimes you can find them on sale in seasonal prints, like pumpkins, but I am holding out for some summer patterns.)

P.P.S. It’s nice to be needed.
P.P.P.S. I would be remiss not to mention, in a post about pajamas, that Hill House just launched an entire line of pajamas!
