Target has 2 packs of Carter's cotton pj's (for smaller sizes . . . 5 and under) or cotton long johns.  Those are the best priced ones I've found.  Old navy isn't bad either, and has lots of sizes.  Costco too.

The Children's Place sells some nice all cotton pjs that aren't treated.

Does anyone know if the flame retardant chemicals wash out after many washings?  If so I'd say the way to go is to buy them used.

You can even get cotton tshirts and sweats anywhere to use.  They're comfy and not treated.

Tight fitting cotton pajamas usually aren't treated with chemicals.

Old Navy.


And yes, I've heard buying loose pajamas used is a good approach too, but it's hard to know how used they are.  (I end up washing them 3 or 4 times first anyway to get residual detergent out because of sensitive skin issues in our house.)

I like Old Navy's pajamas as well. Aside from retardant not being on my list of favorite things, we have stink issues with any jammies made from synthetics.

Costco usually has a good assortment of organic cotton jammies for boys and girls. Also, if you look at labels and it says "wear snug fitting, not fire resistant" then I think you are good to go.

Some tight-fitting cotton pjs are in fact treated with chemical fire retardants so if you really care, it is worth confirming with the manufacturer.
