Mommy Dearest: What to Wear After Giving Birth?

Mommy Dearest,

I am due in a few months and have started thinking about what to take with me to the hospital. I have found lots of options when it comes to PJs and nightgowns and would love to hear your opinion of whether or not it is a good idea to buy some. If so, what type of garment (nightgown, tops and pants, nursing, button down, etc.) should I purchase?

Planning My Hospital Attire,

The button-up nightgown and uber soft socks I wore when my daughter was born, ended up stained and in the trash. So I stuck to the hospital issued gown when I had my son and brought a robe to wrap up in when visitors came. I think your best bet is an inexpensive robe or nursing gown that allows your baby easy access and you mobility when the nurses come in to swap out pads and ice. Let's see what other lilsugar mommies recommend. And, good luck with your labor!
