There’s no doubt that before, during or after the birth of your baby, comfort is the number one priority for lounging and sleeping.
It's important to select the right maternity pyjamas and maternity nightwear that cater to your needs whilst ensuring you get a good night's sleep, or can enjoy spending well-deserved time relaxing. Good nursing nightwear can also help you drift off knowing that any midnight disturbances can be easily resolved with easy-nursing access.
There’s lots of options out there depending on your priorities: would you like something with the support of an elasticated waist or perhaps something light and not too constrictive, like maternity night dresses? Keep an eye out for those that are adjustable or support growing bumps so that your maternity PJs will be there for you throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
Whatever your priorities, fear not: we’ve rounded up the 10 best maternity nightwear options that will provide you with optimum comfort through the night (and day!).
