Weird question but what do you wear to bed to make it easy to feed at night?
During the day I have some BFing tops but I don't particularly want to wear a bra to bed as I don't find it very comfortable. Can't just wear a shirt/singlet as I am leaking a lot and need to have nursing pads in so the bed doesn't get soaking wet!
Any ideas most welcome!

I wore PJs which buttoned down the front with a sleeping crop top which had drop down cups for BFing. Bought a few of them from Kmart. They were incredibly comfy, kept nursing pads in place but still had a bit of support.

Can you wear a breastfeeding singlet/crop top K-mart have them quite cheap and you can still wear breastpads with them, as they are still tight enough to keep them in place, then singlets have a built in crop top section you put the pads in and the single croptops kind of cross over at the front and youjust pull to the side when you need to feed

I had lots of trouble with this as I have bigger bosoms and if I wore a bra, they would just fall out when I rolled lol Gosh it was uncomfortable and hurt when my nips were still tender! I ended up getting some of those aah bra things and just popping a boob out the top or bottom for feeding. They were better than the crossover ones for me because they kept me contained I'm lucky now that I don't leak so just wear a singlet to bed.

I was so glad when the leaky-ness stopped!! Nobody tells you about waking up with milk drenched sheets!!!
In summer I slept in a little crop top thing that would hold in breast pads. Otherwise I just used I keep a hand towel next to the bed so if I felt myself leaking I could catch it!
