Cotton nightwear for late pregnancy and post birth
Not the most exciting request I know but am struggling already to keep cool at night and ideally want some nightwear for now / in hospital / after birth that is cool and flattering enough to be seen in! Anyone?
Why are cotton nighties in light and pale colours?! Drives me mad - the last thing you want in hospital are obvious blood stains. Op I suggest lounge type yoga pants and a night shirt or support camivest
Ooh mrs lettuce that looks promising. Thanks. I remember the night sweats post birth were dire last time I need lots of cool nightwear. Yes revolve it's very hard to find something that will fulfil all of the above. I am also struggling to find a cheap dark dressing gown. I seem to recall ending up wearing one of DHs fleeces in hospital last time for some reason! Hopefully the hospital bit will be brief so am going to focus on cool, pretty and practical options for after. I have been looking at the white company longingly but don't think they will be good enough on easy access for night feeds.
I wore these tunics that are so soft + in 100% cotton and in bright colours! They really made me feel good, so good I'm still wearing them now years after my pregnancies!! Great for lounging about the house while staying feminine and I did sleep in them sometimes too: www.tortuedemer.com/lang-en/25-long-kaftans-3-4-length-sleeves
Ooh more suggestions - am loving the Melba ones WillSing might try the nightdress and robe as would kill two birds... And the tunics look lovely too FrenchRiviera - at this rate I might end up with quite a collection!
