The Best Nursing Nightgown, Robe, and Pajama Sets

Newborn babies need to nurse about 8-12 times every day – and that includes regular nighttime feedings. No breastfeeding mama wants to deal with constricting clothing at 3 a.m., so we’ve rounded the best nursing nightgowns, nursing robes, and nursing pajamas on the web.

Shopping For The Best Nursing Sleepwear

The best nursing sleepwear should have a three key elements: accessibility, comfort, and style.

Accessibility: Breastfeeding mothers usually buy nursing pajamas for easy nipple access. Look for options with clasps, stretchy necklines, and compatibility with your nursing bra. Bonus points if the sleepwear has moisture-wicking fabric to soak up leaks and dribbles! (But make sure to choose something that survives laundry machines, too).

Comfort: Since you sleep in nursing pajamas, they should be cozy and comfortable. Elastic waistbands, forgiving fits, and seasonally-appropriate fabric make all the difference!

Style: While nursing sleepwear is inherently practical, you still want to look stylish. Many of our picks have playful patterns, vibrant colors, flattering shapes, and other fashionable features.
