So does anyone wear anything special as far as nighttime attire? I have about 7 or so nursing gowns that I have been wearing for the last 13.5 months. I am getting pretty sick of them but I like wearing a nightgown better than pj's. I also have a couple pairs of nursing pj's but honestly if you are wearing 2 piece pj's you might as well pull up your shirt to nurse. I hate that all my nursing gowns are all maternity. It makes me feel as big as a house with all this extra fabric. I have tried nightgowns that button down the front but to me they are a pain. Has anyone seen some nice (ahem-sexier) nursing gowns that are not maternity for sale anywhere? I have contemplated making my own but I have so many projects going now I don't really have time. Any suggestions? I am just feeling really dowdy in my nursing gowns...

I don't like nursing gowns either they're really for after the baby when you still have the baby weight thing going on. Motherwwear has some cute nursing gowns check them out. Also Nursing Pj's arent't the same as a 2pc jammies cause tehy have the slits in them. I am in the market for some cute nursing pj's and gowns myself.<br>
BUT I do mostly sleep in a comfy pants nad tops at the moment cause I too am sick of the nursing gowns. BUT I'm also sick of lifting my shirt which Is why I want to find some jammies myself.

I just wear a bra and panties. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br><br>
I hate nightgowns as I always get wrapped in them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: I used to sometimes wear a t-shirt to bed but nowadays just a nursing bra and panties. Less laundry that way! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

Ummmm Errrrr <span style="font-size:xx-small;">nothing</span> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> If its a cold night I'll wear sweat shirt and pants.<br><br>
Night gowns end up around my neck.<br><br>
Sometimes I'll wear a button up shirt and keep it unbuttoned enought so a breast will hang out, it still kees me nice and warm that way.

so you mama's that go au naturale. What if the house catches on fire in the middle of the night and you don't have time to pull anything on? It is too cold here to go au naturale. In the summer sometimes i will do a nursing bra and panties but this time of year I need comfy clothes. I think I am going to go looking for some comfy pj's ( the loungewear type). Which is sad since I love nightgowns. I saw a pretty one on the Japenese weekend website but it was like $68 and I can't remember if that was with shipping and tax ( that was a clearance price). I can't see paying that much when I could get 3 pairs of pj's for that. PLus it was more summery and like I said it gets coooooooold here!

Welll I keep a robe or sweat shirt/pants right handy to the bed. I would grab dd them and then run to the other bedroom to grab the other dd then outside to put on my clothes. We live in the country so nobody but my parents to see me nekkid. When we lived in town I also slept nude but still had a robe nearby to wrap around me.<br><br>
Its cold here also but dh keeps me warm and we have a warm comforter if I have to get up to many times ( more than 2 in 2 hours) I put on comfy clothes. I have pretty much no body fat so it doesnt take much for me to get cold.<br><br>
Costco has some nice cotton lounge clothes the to me look very nice and comfy. I am not into nursing clothes so I just lift up a shirt or button down to bf.

Onehotmama.com usually has some cute nursing lingerie. I'm a pj type of gal (can't stand my legs rubbing against each other, and can't stand the way nightgowns ride up!) and I HATE those inverted-pleat openings with a passion!! So, sleepwear that's designed for nursing (and fits in with my pickiness!) is hard to find.<br><br>
I really like the "40 days" pjs and the "snuggle up" pjs on the site I mentioned. Of course, none of them are cheap.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

I just wear a big t-shirt and pj pants (or shorts depending on the time of year).<br>
But then, my DD started sleeping through the night at around 5 weeks, and rarely if ever wakes up wanting to nurse.

If your breasts are not especially large, a man's large V-neck t-shirt is great! Just pull down the neck around whichever breast. It's much easier than struggling to pull up a shirt that you are lying on!

LOL... half of the time my clothes are folded on my dresser but don't get put away since dh works 3rd shift and I can't really go into the bedroom during the day to put them away because he's sleeping.<br><br>
I'd probably grab some horribly mismatched outfit and get dressed in the street. :LOL

I'm looking for something nice myself! Lately since it's gotten chilly I wear a cardigan and leave the top half unbuttoned. DS gets super mad when any covers are touching him so I can't cozy up in a nice blanket. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
But Bravado makes a nursing nightgown that looks cute. It has flap openings that snap (I think) shut. Also Majamas makes a nursing nightgown that you just pull the cups down to nurse. I'm more of a jammies girl myself, nightgowns always seem to cause tangles!<br><br>

I would LOVE the majamas nightgown. I didn't even look for the price though. Didn't want to scare myself awake this morning!<br>
Right now I'm not even at my own home so going nude or in dress a bra and panties is out of the question! I hate to say it but unless some body parts of mine seriously change before DH gets back I won't be when I am at home either. I hate being naked, so sad I know. So I really need to find some cute, preferably sexy AFFORDABLE nursewear. Mare sleeps through the night MOST of the time, you can never tell with her though<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

Either a tank or button fron top and pj pants. I leave the button shirts unbuttoned, easier that way and the tank top I just yank up, or rather, Emily yanks it up.
