In those last days of pregnancy, you might think a giant t-shirt and your husband?s pants make for a great sleepwear outfit. Such an ensemble is probably very comfortable, but you owe yourself something nice, comfortable and form-fitting when you are at the end of a long pregnancy. Maternity sleepwear is designed to help you move around easier, especially for those late-night trips to the bathroom. Additionally, many maternity sleepwear sets easily convert to nursing tops once the baby arrives.
A basic maternity sleepwear set consists of a nursing camisole or shirt and a set of stretchy pants. These are made with soft, breathable fabrics like cotton. You may love your husband?s sleep pants, but let?s be honest; they aren?t as soft as maternity pajamas. Maternity nursing sleepwear does double duty as well; you won?t have to fumble with extra layers of clothing as you sleepily feed your baby. The best types of outfits are the ones that require the least work. A sleep chemise with a crossover top allows easy access to the breast for infant feeding and quick trips to the bathroom for you.
