What’s the best sleepwear for my baby?

The most important thing in sleepwear is to avoid over heating your baby because over heating is associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). As such, natural fibers such as cotton are often best for sleepwear. Babies should not wear any head covers while sleeping as this also over heats them. If you wrap your baby or use a sleeping bag (safe infant sleep sack), make sure you adjust the sleepwear accordingly so he does not over heat. This might mean taking off a layer of clothing – especially in the hotter months.
