Thanks to the generous pledges of HUNDREDS of first-time crowdfunders, we are now able to include larger sizes in our first factory order!
No more nasty wet sheets, no more expensive diapers, no more stained mattresses. Say hello to PEEjamas!
Each of us here at Peejamas is a parent who cares deeply about our children: their health, their well-being, their development and growth, and their future. For these very reasons, we came up with a product that we believe flips the script on conventional potty-training at night.
Peejamas are a parents complete replacement to traditional nighttime potty-training methods (i.e. diapers).
So, How do They Work?
Peejamas' Patent Pending design uses the highest quality fabrics that absorb, capture, and contain fluid to keep your sheets from getting wet, your mattress from getting stained, and your night of rest uninterrupted.
Our super-absorbent fabrics will hold over 10X their weight in liquid!
Yep, time to party!
The Problems with Current Nighttime Potty-Training Options
Nighttime diapers are expensive - we're talking up to 2x more expensive than regular diapers. That's a lot of dough for young, cash-conscious couples to be throwing away every month.
Washing your sheets gets exhausting. Any parent that has had to strip the sheets off their kids bed in the middle of the night to throw them in the wash knows that the struggle is real. Especially night after night... after night after night... You get it.
Diapers add billions of pounds of waste to landfills each year. Not only are they a major contributor to total landfill waste, studies indicate that diapers can take up to 500 years to degrade!
Diapers can delay a child's learning! We all have our crutches we use, and kids are no different. Based on our super scientific research :), we strongly believe that when a child uses a diaper, they are more prone to use it. We've found that beta testing children using Peejamas learned to hold their urine at night much more quickly. Diapers are a crutch that only delay a child's ability to potty train at night.
Peejamas are the result of the efforts of a group of parents over the past 1.5 years to make a substitute for diapers that improve the child's potty-training experience - helping the child learn more quickly, while helping ease the stress that parents often go through.
The final product is a pair of pajamas that are more affordable, convenient, sustainable, and also improve the psyche of the child. Where diapers have their inherent limitations (as mentioned above), Peejamas literally solve all of those problems.
Peejamas are more AFFORDABLE. We've done the math. Compared to nighttime diapers, Peejamas are 66% cheaper than diapers on a per usage basis. Consider then the cost of your kids' pajamas as well and the cost of Peejamas are 75%+ cheaper than the bundled price of diapers+pajamas. Cost-savings begin to be astronomically better for parents whose child may take longer to learn.
Peejamas are more CONVENIENT. Ever roll the dice, not put your kid in a nighttime diaper, and then have her come in your room and tell you she wet the bed? Of course you have. Well, say "hasta luego" to both of those things. With Peejamas, no need to roll the dice with a diaper or worry about having to strip the sheets from the bed at 2 a.m. to do the wash.
Peejamas are more SUSTAINABLE. Remember what we said above about landfills? Diapers are literally one of the single most common pieces of waste contributing to U.S. landfills each year. So. Much. Waste. Though using water and electricity for laundry is obvious, the net positive impact Peejamas have on the environment is significant.
Peejamas are BETTER FOR YOUR CHILD. We can't tell you how many parents have shared with us their frustrations with nighttime diapers: "My little girl just can't stop using a diaper.", "My baby is dry all day then pees every. single. night.", "My son is 7 and is STILL in Pull-Ups. It costs us a fortune!" By not wearing a diaper, children who use Peejamas don't have that known safety net to rely on. Rather, Peejamas appear - and feel - like your typical pair of pajamas (just more comfortable). By removing the false confidence that a diaper provides, the speed at which your child should become potty-trained increases exponentially.
Peejamas are STILL PAJAMAS after potty-training ends. "What do we do with all these extra pull-ups now that little jane is potty-trained?!" is a question thousands of parents have asked. There the diapers sit - perhaps for years - wasting space in your house. Not so with Peejamas. Chances are, Peejamas will quickly become your child's favorite jammies because of their comfortable fabrics! Good news - even once potty-trained, they can continue wearing Peejamas!

Risks and challenges
To get this product started and make a dent in the industry, we have a few hurdles to overcome:
1. As this type of product truly DOES NOT exist, Peejamas are literally the first-movers. We are creating and pushing a brand new product category that doesn't exist on the market. (Un)fortunately, this can take a lot of capital to perfect the product and delivery. Though we have gone through various iterations and have a near perfect product, it is possible to run in to design flaws during QA from manufacturing to distribution.
2. Manufacturing. To make pajamas that are technically innovative and made of such high quality fabrics, the cost to produce the pajamas is not cheap. Though we have chosen a very competent factory, the innovative design and unforeseen problems may lead to unanticipated delays. We are working with the best sourcers and manufacturers to mitigate this risk and ensure on-time fulfillment and delivery.
3. This industry is a tough one to crack. In fact, various case studies have been done on the infamous 'Diaper Wars' between two major diaper manufacturers who have very deep pockets. Fortunately for us, we absolutely do not consider ourselves a diaper company [Though we want to take their business]! In order to compete, we need to continue protecting ourselves legally from these companies that are willing to a. sue quickly and b. steal innovative product ideas. In all honesty, some of the funds will be used to protect ourselves legally. In fact, patent requests have been filed, granting us pending patents to safeguard ourselves from unnecessary legal troubles.
4. An accident of devastating proportions. We're a small team. Though we hope to live a long time, getting mauled by a cougar or horned by a moose isn't entirely outside the realm of possibility, considering where we live. But don't worry, we've taken the necessary precautions to account for something like this. :)
We believe in being forthright and transparent and commit to keeping you, our backers, informed of any possible challenge.
