You'll find you spend a lot of time in your pyjamas before - and after - the baby comes so we've rounded up the most comfortable and stylish maternity nightwear to see your through those sleepless nights (and days!) ahead. What's more, a lot of these are nursing nightwear, which is a must when you have a hungy newborn on your hands.
Mama Moosh's maternity pyjamas don't just look good, they're full of clever little details to help you on your way to getting a good night's sleep, whether you're pregnant or nursing a newborn. The top is fitted with a hidden "secret support" to support your growing bust or to accommodate breast pads and, to breastfeed, just pull the top edge of the neckline down. The innovations don't stop there: the pyjama bottoms sit comfortable on or just under the bump and only the back of the waistband is elasticated to avoid pressure on the tummy - essential if you've had a C-section.
We can't resist a fun print and this "Full English" design, complete with bacon, fried eggs and a piece of toast is a comic nod to the lazy mornings that are about to become no more.
It's worth packing this striped nursing nightdress into your hospital bag ahead of the big day. The cotton-rich fabric will keep you cool (even on a warm ward) and there's an easy-access popper fastening, so there'll be no fussing about with tricky buttons when it comes to breastfeeding.
Dressing gowns become your new best friend during pregnancy and this one, from maternity supremo Seraphine, has adjustable self-tie sashes, helping you get the perfect fit. Added to this, grey marl is really having its moment, while the delicate white lace trim is a pretty finishing touch.
With all the changes that are happening to your body, it's easy to feel more ugly duckling than beautiful swan when you're pregnant. These PJs might help you overcome that - with a tapered leg and jersey fabric cut loosely around the stomach, they flatter your figure and remind you you're gorgeous.
Got a babymoon planned or just find yourself pregnant in the middle of a heatwave? This short and jersey PJ set ensures you stay cool and look good, while the cross-over neckline can be pulled aside to breastfeed when your baby finally makes an appearance.
Nursing nightwear can be sexy. This light, silky nightdress is ruched around the waistband to flatter your tummy, while the bust is highlighted thanks to a grey crossover neckline. This also hides a light inner breast support, which makes feeding in the middle of the night a lot less of a faff.
Mothers-to-be will love the pop of fuchsia on the trim of this PJ set, as well as the under-the-bump, loose-fit pants. But, when you've had your baby, you'll realise the real highlight of these pyjamas are the drop-down clips - ideal for breastfeeding when you're in a bit of a daze.
You can't go wrong with a pair of checked pyjamas and this set from Jojo Maman Bebe boasts an elasticated waistband and lightweight fabric, making it perfect for autumn nights when it’s starting to get chilly. (Please note, these pyjamas won’t be in shops or online till September 2017!)
A good night's rest might be hard to come when you're pregnant or have a newborn but Seraphine has done its best to make their PJs super-soft and super-sleep-inducing. They're made from natural bamboo viscose and the low-rise pants sit snugly around the bottom of your bump. There's also a crossover V neckline that parts easily so, if you do have to get up and breastfeed in the night, it's a no-nonsense affair.
Being pregnant can leave you feeling self-conscious about your body so this pyjama top is gathered at the waist to help flatter your baby bump. It's also useful for when your baby arrives; the top transforms into nursing nightwear, thanks to a handy hidden double layer, an essential for those twilight feeds.
