No one really thinks about the effects that not changing your child’s pyjamas (or bubs onesie) can cause, but truthfully, there are a few reasons why this should become a healthy habit of yours — regardless how old they are.
Ni’Kesia Pannell shares on ROMPER that of course you don’t have to change your child’s pyjamas nightly, but going more than a day or two without fresh pyjamas can cause some nasty issues.
These seven things will probably make you cringe says Ni’Kesia.
1. Pyjamas are stained with nappy leakage
Keeping your child in their pyjamas may seem convenient to you — especially if you’re lounging around the house — but doing this can see you cleaning baby poop out of them more often. Baby’s nappies leak, regardless of what clothes they wear.
2. Exposure to dangerous Microbes
According to Mother Nature Network, not changing your baby’s pyjamas regularly could result in the buildup of microbes, which can cause disease.
3. Baby acne
Wearing dirty pyjamas can also be a cause of your baby contracting acne. Just like adults, the buildup of bacteria can cause their skin to clog and produce acne, The Huffington Post noted.
Though you may not see it, baby’s sweat in their sleep. Knowing this, they will start to smell and keeping them in the same pyjamas will heighten the stench.
5. Stains are harder to remove
According to Bustle, keeping your baby in the same pyjamas for too long can make the stains they gather harder to get out. Letting stains sit for days or weeks could require a more extensive removal process or even worse, require you to throw them away.
6. Bacteria and illness
Since there are so many bacteria that cling on to dirty clothes, not changing your child out of their pyjamas can cause them to get sick, too.
7. Risk of developing a rash
Wearing dirty clothes can lead to rashes. The skin can become itchy and irritated due to the oils and dander that get trapped into the fabric.
