Oh my goodness yes I was dying to get into my own clothes.
I learned with DD I was super uncomfortable in nightgowns. I had a c-section so I assumed that I wouldn't want a waistband. Wrong.
With DS I was so much more comfortable in my sweatpants and tank top.
erdonaldson0730:Oh! Where did you get your nursing gown?
I'm getting mine tomorrow at BRU hopefully. I saw one there a couple of months ago, but all they had was an XL and it looked huge. I hope they got some more in stock. Otherwise, I'll have to go to Macy's. I haven't found a Motherhood or Destination Maternity store out here, yet. Also, can I just say....I really wish they sold basic nursing tanks in a package like they do men's undershirts, you know?? They are so freaking expensive, it'd be nice to have at least a plain "affordable" version so you can have more than just a couple.
I have this gown/robe set: https://www.motherhood.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=92515170150&MasterCategory_Id=MC16
The other gown I have is also Motherhood, but I bought it used. It is grey and pink striped. Because that matters, you know?
In all actuality, I'm pretty excited to have cute AND comfy clothes for the hospital this time. Last time I had this huge spaghetti strap nightgown that was already rather worn out and has no shape or anything. I didn't expect *any* visitors and didn't care, but several people from H's job stopped by. Yeesh.
I'll probably have c-section again so day #1 I'll be in hospital gown, #2 after shower I'll wear my own gown with robe (I'm not a fan but when else will I wear it? It was a gift from my first's baby shower). #3 I'll wear a nursing pj set with pants. Day #4 I'll wear sweats, nursing tank, and sweater/hoodie or something similar and that I'll wear home. I may throw in 1 more pj set that has button up top from last time too in case I change my mind on my own gown or get something bloody/dirty.
ETA: I'll have a sleep nurse bra for under anything I wear or a nursing tank.
This is the nursing gown I got from motherhood for when I get cleaned up and non-immediate family visitors start coming- https://www.motherhood.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=906380153&MasterCategory_Id=MC16&green=2ddf7c00-ff40-0df5b8-964c-74facbc5629f
I'll bring some sort of robe and a pair of pj pants and nursing tank too.
Yoga pants, nursing tanks, nursing bras, zip up hoodie because it gets cold, and socks.
It is not an "official" nursing gown but I found a soft cotton nightgown with buttons that go down far enough for easy access on clearance at Burlington Coat Factory for $6 yesterday. At that price, I thought it was worth a try and I won't be upset if it gets ruined. (If you go this route, try out the buttons. Some of that style were really hard to undo and would have taken way too long with a hungry baby.)
I'll also bring the yoga pants/nursing tank combo and see what sounds comfiest.
