    Default Maternity pjs?

    I got lots of maternity clothes from asos a while ago but have been managing in tshirts and non maternity pjs for sleep. 31 weeks think it's time for decent pjs maybe breastfeeding friendly but don't want to spend too much $$$
    Any ideas??

    I think any pjs with a button up top a couple of sizes bigger perhaps would be perfect

    I agree. Any tops with buttons are fine for breast feeding pjs. In the early days after my 1st was born I was wearing those feeding singlets with the clips at night as I leaked a lot and needed to wear breast pads at night. Once my supply settled I switched to button up. Now (been breast feeding over 2 years) I just wear a bigger shirt and pull it down to feed as I got annoyed with buttons!

    Glad I clicked on this, I was starting to think about pjs and stuff to take to hospital for on the ward after baby and was just planning on getting some of those big oversized sleep shirts and leggings but that sure won't work for breast feeding. Lol.

    Definitely anything with easy to open buttons or can be pulled down to get your boob out! I never bought specific maternity/nursing ones, just ones with plenty of room. Anything cheap you don't mind getting covered in milk or baby sick.

    And re. PJs for hospital, I always prefer nighties as you'll be bleeding after and found it better when sitting in bed to have a nightie I could pull up from under my bum so when the pad inevitably leaked or nurse wanted to check (post emergency c section for #1 and post surgery to repair bad tearing for #2) they could do this easily and no staining. Pj bottoms would not have worked for me at all, especially with a catheter if necessary!

    I just wore cheap drawstring pj pants from Kmart in plain black when I was in hospital with a breast feeding singlet & cardigan.

    Kinda felt like I was getting dressed each day but with all the comfort after my c-section

    Yes a nightie with buttons is better as I had an emergence c section and the waistband from any pants would have rubbed on the wound.

    Also knickers a size bigger helped too

    I wore yoga pants and breastfeeding singlets with a light cardigan over the top if I was cool with all three of mine (two VBs and one c-section)

    I had dd in summer and I had a nightie that had a V neck, it was bigger to fit over my bump and the arms stayed up but were loose enough to slip off over the shoulder. In hospital I wore cheap Kmart maternity bras but once at home and I barely had any milk anyway I just wore pads in my nightie. Not sure about this time it will be August for me.

    Big W have a great range of Maternity pj's and very affordable, comfy pants and feeding a tops, feeding singlets and 3/4 pants and pretty but practical feeding nighties, so something for everyone.
