i have a horrible feeling that i will be needing to pack my hospital bag sooner than i planned. has anyone come across any maternity pyjamas (or pyjamas with room for a bump) but that have a long sleeved top thats suitable for feeding - so wrap style or maybe button down? most of the pjs i've seen have short sleeve or strappy tops. and i am way too cold a person for these!

i know serpahine have some but they are a bit £££ unless anyone has a code?

thank you

If they are for when you are in hosp you really won't need long sleeve. M&s had some not sure if they still do

There's these but only large left now. I had a non maternity long sleeved nightie 2 sizes up from debenhams but doesn't seem to be there now, though m&s do something similar.

Just a word of warning though, if this is your first, labour and post natal wards are unimaginably hot! You may be better off with strappy and a shirt over the top.

hello - no this is my third and despite giving birth on one of the hottest days of the year before i was still bloody cold! it has to be at least 35 degrees before i even start to feel warm smile.

i will check out M&S, hadnt thought of there as we only have a small store. thank you!

Maybe some sort of lightweight dressing gown that you can put on and take off as you feel? X

Autograph at M&S do lovely stretchy pyjamas - they fit all through pregnancy, fit normally and usually do button or wrap tops - I have various combos.

I went to Tesco and bought some very traditional Men's PJs - cotton, checked pattern, button top and elasticated bottoms (the bottoms even had convenient pockets). I wore them each day in hospital (8 days before they let us go) - wore a nightie at night but wanted something more modest during the day. They sold bottoms and tops separately so I could get the sizes I needed.
Worked very well and much cheaper than "Maternity" clothing
