Do I really need to buy maternity pajamas?

From the first trimester, changes abound in that beautiful body of yours. The truth is, getting comfortable and having a good night’s sleep gets a little harder the further into your pregnancy you are.  While you could use your regular pajamas during pregnancy, they may not offer the same level of comfort and support as maternity pajamas. Maternity pajamas are designed to provide maximum comfort and flexibility. Good quality maternity pajamas are also designed to be worn after childbirth, making them a smart investment for your pregnancy and postpartum period. You want to look for the best quality you can afford in terms of material. Remember, this is a time to pamper yourself.

FAQs

Do I need maternity pajamas?

Your body will change throughout your pregnancy. Yes, you can get away with regular pajamas or your hubby’s t shirt but there’s something special about dressing for your shape and feeling good. Maternity pajamas are a wise investment for your pregnancy and postpartum period because they are made to accommodate your bump, keep you comfy and help you with nursing postpartum.

What kind of pajamas to bring to the hospital after delivery?

Make sure you have some comfortable sleepwear that is easy to nurse in and provides easy access for medical examinations. We recommend bringing a couple of pairs of pajamas that you can nurse in, plus a dark colored t-short or something you don’t mind getting dirty. Also a robe for comfort and warmth as hospitals can get a little chilly. Other mamas have suggested darker colors where possible. 

What is the best fabric for pregnancy sleepwear?

The best fabric for pregnancy sleepwear is one that is breathable, soft, and comfortable. We make no secret about the fact we love bamboo and organic, natural fibers such as cotton, linen and Tencel or Modal. These are great options as they allow for air circulation and wick away moisture, keeping you cool and dry. Avoid synthetic materials like polyester, nylon, and rayon, as they tend to trap heat and moisture, causing discomfort and skin irritation. The better quality the material is, the longer it will last.
