Pajamas for Nursing

By now have purchased so many lovely and much needed, and even unnecessary items for baby, but what about yourself, mama. If you plan on breastfeeding your baby, you will need comfortable clothing that makes this process easy and enjoyable.

So why not choose the best pajamas for nursing to make those pajama drills a breeze.

Why You will Need Nursing Pajamas

As a mother myself, I can tell you that proper pajamas for nursing are essential, that I would not have been able to go without. The first month or two, you will practically live in your pajamas, so it’s important to have something multi-functional and comfortable while your body settles back to its original shape.

Pajamas designed for breastfeeding and even button-up pajamas are much easier and faster when a baby needs a quick drink. They also offer good enough coverage without you having to expose too much of yourself while breastfeeding, which can be particularly beneficial in those cold winter months.

So, all in all, yes, you most definitely need a pair or two of the best pajamas for nursing.

Best Types of Nursing Pajamas

There are a few different types of nursing pajamas that work very well, so I will address only the most important ones. Keep in mind that you get sets for summer and winter with either long pants and long sleeve tops or shorts and short-sleeved tops.

  • Classic Stretchy Pajamas – These consist of soft stretchable materials and are a two-piece set with flexible materials that allow more stretch in the waistband. The top does not necessarily accommodate for breastfeeding but can easily be lifted and tucked.
  • Breastfeeding Specific Pajamas – They are similar to the general soft and stretchable pajamas, but there is a special panel where you can open up your breasts to feed your baby.
  • Button Up Pajamas – I love the button-up pajamas, especially the soft brushed cotton kind for winter. You can quickly button your shirt down to breastfeed the baby and button it back up. These pajamas are also quite versatile for use after nursing.
  • Pyjama Shirts – Comfortable and ideal for hot summers, they come with opening panels or button designs for nursing.

I myself prefer soft kinds of cotton and stretchable, almost T-shirt types of materials for pajamas for nursing, and Viscose is also a good fabric. Satins and hard linens do not provide good enough stretch.

Features of Good Pajamas for Nursing

Nursing Pajamas

  • Materials – I would highly recommended natural and soft materials such as cotton, brushed cotton or viscose in Pajamas for Nursing. However synthetic such as soft polyester can also be comfortable and breathable.
  • Closure – The closure in pajamas for nursing is quite important. It is easiest to breastfeed your baby with pajamas with a button front closure where you can open up quickly and do not have to lift the entire top. Pull-on closure pajama tops that are very loose are also acceptable as you can easily lift them. For the pants, a soft elastic is ideal.
  • Fit – Loos and comfortable fitting pajamas are ideal for nursing, as you do not want something restraining. For pajama bottoms, a comfortable fitting elasticized waistband is sufficient. Just keep in mind to get a looser fit if you have had a C-Section.
  • Options – Pajamas for nursing come in many fun colors and prints, as well as softer and solid feminine colors, you can also easily choose from plus and standard sizes, as most of these brands cater for all sizes.
