Pajamas for Postpartum

The best pajamas for Postpartum to cocoon in and nurse in are a necessity that needs to be at the top of your list before becoming a mother.

Postpartum pajamas provide a comfortable lounge and sleeping wear for after your delivery when your body is still tender and bloated, as well as an easy and comfortable fit for breastfeeding.

Why You will Need Postpartum Pajamas

You can make regular pajamas work for nursing and postpartum, but believe me, anything to make your life easier during this particular time comes much needed and sought after.

So yes, I would recommend that you choose some good postpartum pajamas that also accommodate nursing.
Two main aspects that I look for in Postpartum Pajamas are flexible and soft materials that can stretch and stretch quite a bit and either a button opening or flap for easy breastfeeding. These and dark colors will be your best friends in postpartum pajamas.

There are three things to consider when choosing postpartum Pajamas that will affect your choice;

  • Birthing – Your postpartum pajamas will most likely also be used when birthing, or the top at least, and you will need to wear them straight afterward. Keep in mind that you will have a cut below the waist with a C-Section, exactly where your waistband for pajamas will come, so it needs to fit comfortably. Your body will also be bloated, and not to mention maybe overheated and sweaty, so the pajamas need to accommodate for this. Other than that, there will be plenty of bleeding, and you may have an accident, so I usually opt for darker pajamas and make sure that you have two or more sets.
  • Lounge Wear and Pajamas – Your Postpartum pajamas will become the clothing you are going to be in the whole time the first week or so, and most of the time, for at least the first two months. So, keep them comfortable and weather appropriate.
  • Nursing – A very important feature of Postpartum Pajamas is how well they accommodate breastfeeding. Many Post-Partum Pajamas sets come with openings or flaps to make breastfeeding easier. However, I have found that button-up designs work just as well.

Features of Good Pajamas for Postpartum

Postpartum Pajamas

  • Materials – Look for soft breathable and comfortable materials for post-partum Pajamas. I always opt for more natural materials such as cotton, viscose or bamboo blends, however may polyester styles are just as good.
  • Design – Postpartum pajamas need to fit loosely and comfortably with a waistband in the bottoms that accommodate the extra weight around the waist, and if you have had a C-Section. A top that allows for easy breastfeeding is advised, so rather go for button-up options in a top.
  • Fit – Look for bottoms with a loose-fitting waistband for the first couple of weeks postpartum. The top should also have a loose and comfortable fit to accommodate breastfeeding.
  • Options – Postpartum Pajamas come in many colors and prints, all for your personal preference. You may also be able to select from standard and plus-size options, as most brands in postpartum pajamas cater for larger size options. Generally, I would recommend that you look for dark colors in Postpartum pajamas as there may be plenty of bleeding, and dark colors can hide and wash out little accidents much easier.
