I was just wondering what practical wear i should buy for labour/before and after. What do people give birth in? After im persuming just loose comfy pants/PJ bottoms but not sure what i need as in night wear
Not much for labour. Many people wear a vest top / t shirt or nothing. Or a swimming top if a water birth. Comfy pj type clothes for after. Soft bras/crop top to wear at night to hold the breast pads. Comfy pjs that crossover or unbutton for breastfeeding if you are doing that
Take enough comfy bras in bigger sizes than you are. I went up about 4 cup sizes, and only had 1 spare bra with me. I thought it was enough, but didn't anticipate how leaky my boobs would be/how awful breastpads are at their job! (although I did have too much milk so I may not be the best guide!!)
Dark dressing gown, slippers/flipflops. You probably won't care what you are wearing once you are in labour! Soft pjs for after.
