Aside from sewing them, does anyone know a good place to get kids' pajamas that don't have flame retardant chemicals in them?

I think it's legally required to have flame retardants in clothes isn't it?

If that's true, and I'm not 100% on that, your best bet is to go to used shops.

My kids just wear thermals in the winter and undershirts in the summer.

DD has a pair of pajamas that say "not flame retardant" in them... Maybe it's Joe Boxer brand? I'll check later.

Yeah, vinegar soaking and multiple washes are supposed to help, like stripping diapers.

I do vinegar soaks on all the ones we get new. (Nana loves giving PJs as gifts.)

Yeah sizes 9months to 14 must have a flame retardant of some sort. Smaller than 9 months is not required to be flame retardant.

As long as you look for cotton pajamas when you can find snug fitting ones that will work.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about http://m.target.com/p/scooby-doo-boys-4-piece-cotton-pajama-set-brown/-/A-13682838
