Jammin’ in my jammies
They say a consistent bedtime routine is the key to helping little ones sleep well. Having a good night’s rest for our kids is our number one priority, but who says they can’t do it in style, #amiright mamas? Here are our top picks to add a bit of sass and style to bedtime. From sleepwear to sleepsacks, we’ve got you covered. Click through the slide show to see our 10 must-haves for catching zzz’s.
Here’s hoping for a good night’s sleep!
A big hit with Hong Kong mamas, Snug-a-licious Jim Jams are made with super snug fabric, which is sourced from bamboo and feels as soft, if not softer, than more expensive fabrics such as silk and cashmere. This miracle material is also quick drying and temperature regulating, which can put mama’s mind at rest that little ones won’t be overheating.
We love this brand even more as it is run by parents who took inspo from their baby boy. Our favourite patterns are the Hong Kong inspired designs from the Long John PJs – Three Little Taxis for your little misters, and Lucy’s Birdcage for your little ladies, both retailing at $390.
We’re in love! The Ecru Floral Woven Short Pyjamas from Next Direct are an insanely good value at $223 for two adorable sets. Check out the UK online store that delivers quick sticks to us here in Hong Kong. It is jam-packed with great nighttime options for both older and younger kids, boys and girls.
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to sleepwear threads from Petit Bateau. Made from cotton velour, the pyjama pulls off a chic style you would only expect from the popular French brand. We love all the discreet details of tone-on-tone picot edging gathering at the yoke, and a navy blue bow at the neck which gives the onesies a refined look. C’est magnifique!
Petit Bateau, Shop 325, Prince’s Building, 10 Chater Road, Central
Providing a personal touch, Stuck On You provides both winter and summer ($249) pyjamas for both boys and girls. Made from cotton elastane with added stretch for comfort, the bottoms feature an elasticated drawstring at the waist. Add your child’s name and age to your very own design. Your little one is going to be the envy at every sleepover!
Designer nightie, anyone? If you’re feeling spendy, you really can’t go wrong with a special treat for your little one from Bonpoint. The cotton jersey printed nightie with teeny cherries retails at $662 from Melijoe.com. This website is essentially the Net-a-Porter equivalent for all things luxury and designer for kiddos. You’ll find every designer label under the sun to fit your little people.
These sleep sacks are so cute! If you’re struggling to get your little ones to stay in bed (rather than mummy’s!), than you’re going to love these adorable sleeping bags from Kyle & Vivian. The store stocks the Spanish brand appropriately named, Baby Bites! The shark sleeping bags can be used as ordinary blankets both at home and outdoor. The product is available in variety of colour ranges and in tow age ranges from 0-18 months ($760) and 2-6 years old ($1290). It’s cosy, practical, and colourful, which is bound to make you and your little one smile.
If your wee one wants to be an astronaut when he or she grows up, then he or she only needs to wait until bedtime to make that dream come true! From dinosaurs to mermaids, and everything in between, Snurk offers high quality cushions and bedding sets with photographic prints to make your child’s dreams come true night after night. Snurk bed linens are designed in Holland, made in Portugal and can be found online or in-store at Visionaire, a charming little store on Gough Street.
If your little one is scared of the dark, he’s going to have sweeter dreams with this scrumptious Light Up Ice Cream nightlight ($130) from Mirth. It comes in both pink and green and is the perfect accessory (or gift) for bedtime.
Got an early riser? Then it might be time to introduce the Gro Clock. It uses fun images of the stars and sun to communicate with your child when to go back to sleep and when it’s time to get up. The clock will encourage them to stay in bed until the sun on the clock appears (fingers crossed!). That way, us mamas can stay an extra few minutes in Snoozeville.
Gro Clocks are available at Bumps to Babes at $475.
