Not intended for children's sleepwear

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What am I supposed to make children's sleepwear out of, if all the cute flannel prints say this? I don't get it. Are they just trying to be extra cautious so I don't sue the fabric manufacturer?

I think it's fine for pj's. i think they are just protecting themselves. Most kids pj's are coated with a flame retardent chemical now. Which I'm sure is'nt readily available.They tell you pj's should not be passed onto other kids after normal use because the chemical has been washed out.

It is legalease to cover themselves so you can't sue. It does not have the toxic flame retart on it. Use it for the your clothes just fine. I got some cute frog flannel the other day and I am making some pj's for the kids.

What I've always wondered is what the heck do you need flame retardant material anyway? How often are your children near a fire in their pajamas?

If you have a fireplace it could happen you can never be to safe. Look away for one second.....Of course when I have a fire in ours I make them stand far back but their dad....and thats all I will say on that.

Ok, you ladies seem to be thinking the same thing I am. In our house, I think M's room is about the LAST place there would be a fire, and how much is flame retardant on her PJs really going to help anyway?

I bought some flannel with little boats to make a gown for baby.

I never have understood the flame retardant pj's either. If Pj's need to be flame retardant , than why not regular clothes? And what is the difference if I put a child to bed at night with these pj's. on . but I let them take a nap with their clothes on? Aren't the fire dangers just the same?
Maybe they are safer if you are camping and the kids are outside in their pj's. roasting marshmallows? But then again we roast marshmallows in our clothes too, so again , what do these pj's. do?

Don't forget that they also tell you that pjs should be skin tight and flame resistant.

I plan to make some pjs out of this flannel as well - we don't have candles or flames anywhere near our DS so I am not going to worry about it.
