Hello,

I recently bought two nightgowns made of organic cotton for my two daughters from http://ecobaby.com/catalog/product.asp?pf_id=pcdress
They are called "playdresses" on there, but they are perfect nightgowns. They are on sale for 19.99 each right now. They go up to size 7/8. They also have one with the same fabric but with ruffles. Anyway, my girls really love them, and these nightgowns are very thick and warm

I think this is the key. Things that aren't labeled as sleepwear don't have to meet the same standards, thus aren't generally treated with the same chemicals. Find a dress or maybe a tunic that is comfy and call it a nightgown. We use 2-sizes-too-large undershirts in our house for both DD and I.

My understanding is that there is strong concern about the safety of flame retardant chemicals (PDBEs). They are found not only in children's sleepwear, but in scotchguard, consumer electronics, mattresses, carpets, etc. There is increasing evidence that it is pooling in our bodies, and that it has similar effects to PCBs. If you do a search, you'll likely come up with a fair amount of material as it has been in the news for a couple of years now. Given how prevalent they are, it's really hard to reduce exposure, but I particularly resent deliberatly adding it to what my child sleeps in. We've mostly been going with used sleepwear, but this stuff seems pretty persistent, so I'm still not happy with it.

I believe there was a move afoot in the EU to ban the stuff??

Rubywild- I didn't see that it had FR, I noticed they only have 1 size and it is too big. But really, now that I think about it, maybe it will run small.

RAF- Thanks for that site too. I can't seem to actually find a photo of the dress at their site, and would like to see it. Can you tell me if the size 7/8 runs big or small?? THanks!

mammastar2-I too had read that somewhere. THe most disturbing was hearing that studies have shown it to be in breastmilk!!

I just happened to be cleaning out the back of the van, and noticed that dd's carseat has it!

THanks for all your help and links ladies!! I'm still trying to find a "lounging gown"......

Hello again,

Here is a link that you can see small pictures: http://ecobaby.com/pajamas.htm

There is the "organic cotton playdress" with the picture of the two little girls wearing them and down lower there is the one with ruffles. There used to be pictures on the ordering page too, but I gues they aren't up for some reason. I ordered both the one with and without ruffles. The one *without* the ruffles was a little big but the one *with* the ruffles seemed kinda small. Anyway, I hope that helps.

Rubywild-okay, I checked the site again, I seriously doubt they have FR. However, they only have the babyblue stripe, and we are still into pink at our house! But thankyou for the link!!

RAF and Evan&Anna's_Mom- I just bought the flower one from ecobaby!! They are on clearance for $14!!!

THankyou!!

I've been having this problem now as well. I think etsy.com can help. Since the products are handmade, I don't think they need to abide by the same laws.

Tea Collection and Garnet Hill both sell a mostly cotton mixed with modacrylic nightgown. No flame retardants.

Hanna Andersson .I've been buying their clothing for years!

I realize it's probably already been said but I don't want to scroll back through all the responses.
