you can't. I think it's a federal law or something that they be flame-resistant. (I am sure someone here will correct me if I'm mistaken.) You can find longjohns and other clothing items without the flame-retardant that are not marketed as sleepwear, though, but they wouldn't have the footies in them.
a bit off-topic, but how in the world do you get your baby to wear pajamas that have the feet in them? Neither of my kids can stand to have their feet covered at night (I'm the same way myself - DH thinks it's hilarious).
actually she hasn't yet (well, maybe once or twice) slept with footed PJs. The infant sleepers are all (well not all, just the couple of Carters ones we have) cotton or cotton terry with no flame retardant.
Right now she's been wearing 2 piece cotton PJ sets. The specifically state that they aren't flame resistant. prior to that, she was just wearing a t-shirt or long sleeved shirt with no pants.
But it's getting cold and I thought a blanket sleeper might be better for her.
Although changing diapers with a 2 piece pj is easier.
You can find all-cotton non-flame-retardant jammies at Carter's. That's where I have bought all of dd's jammies. Since 6 months old, she has worn their 2-piece sets.
I'm not completely sure about this, but I think that the pajamas only need to have the flame-retardant chemical in them if they are not made to be snug-fitting. If they are snug-fitting, they do not require the chemical, because there is no loose fabric.
All the cotton pajamas I buy at Carter's are very snug-fitting (like long-johns). Their flame-retardant pajamas are all looser.
There was a thread with the same question not too long ago, and someone posted that she had emailed carter's and they replied that they don't use chemical flame retardents on their polyester blanket sleepers--the fabric is naturally flame retardent. You can probably find the thread by doing a search of this forum.
