The clothes your child wears to bed should be comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Pajamas with many buttons are difficult to change if they become wet. Two-piece pajamas are easier to keep dry with less work. Usually only the bottoms are wet and will need to be changed. If you are lucky enough to get the child to the restroom quickly and in time to use the potty, then the pants and undergarment should be easier to remove in time.
Several clean PJs should be available at all times so that you are not forced to make do with other clothes or have your child be without clean replacement pajamas. If changing clothes in the middle of the night becomes too difficult then both you and your child will be agitated. You should be prepared to make this part of the process be as easy as possible.
