As soon as you find out you're pregnant, you'll also discover the joys of nightwear that you've never realised before. Pregnancy brings with it a sense of tiredness that you probably won't have experienced, and getting as much sleep as possible - or even just resting - is vital. Because as soon as baby arrives, you might still be living in your PJs, but you won't necessarily be getting a lot of sleep... And the word 'tired' takes on a whole new meaning.
So maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas that are comfy and practical are vital, because you'll be wearing them a lot.
We've rounded up the most comfortable and stylish maternity nightwear to see you through those sleepless nights (and days). What's more, a lot of these are suitable for nursing, which is a must when you have a hungry newborn on your hands.
For breastfeeding, accessible nightwear is important - you need to be able to get your boobs out easily when it's 2am and you can't quite see straight.
Here are our favourite sets of maternity nightwear for mamas and mums-to-be...
This gorgeous set is made from breathable and lightweight fabric, making it a comfy option for mamas-to-be. The two-layer ruched design is super soft on skin, plus, easy and discreet enough for nursing. It's made from 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex.
Who doesn't love a bit of leopard print?! This is a maternity girls night-in dream set! From New Look and only £19.99, this is a fabulous treat all round.
Black Bamboo Lounge Maternity Pyjamas is a two piece pyjama set with crossover V neckline and easy nursing access. It's made from soft bamboo being hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking and antibacterial.
This is a sophisticated interpretation of classic men's pyjamas. Made in supersoft cotton and modal, the set is finished with satin binding at the bust pocket and lapel collar. It's certainly the most expensive pair of PJs on the list, but it feels justifiably luxurious - and given how much time you're likely to spend in bed in the next few months, we think you deserve it.
Made with super-soft organic cotton, this 2-in-1 maternity pyjama set can be unbuttoned at the front for nursing when your baby arrives. It has a long sleeved top and drawstring shorts so you'll keep cool all night long.
We love Chelsea Peers pjs and these ones include a top with a crew neck and joggers with elasticated drawstring waist, designed to fit you from bump to baby.
We love this pretty maternity and nursing nightdress with contrasting details. It can be worn during and after pregnancy, all year round. It's made from 95% Viscose and 5% Elastane and it's machine washable.
With a simple, classic shape and delicate lace detailing to the bust and hem, these pjs are made from incredibly soft stretch fabrics. They have adjustable straps and a gently supportive shelf bra to ensure the perfect fit against your figure. They also have drop down clips for easy breastfeeding access so ideal for after your baby arrives too. Annoyingly, you'll have to buy the bottoms separately.
Available in sizes 14-40, these pjs are made from a comfy jersey fabric with an all-over heart print. The set includes a long sleeve top with a scoop neckline and cuffed hem bottoms with an elasticated waistband.
This Maternity Black Spot Bonjour Baby Logo Jogger pyjama set is stylish and comfortable, perfect to wear before finally heading to bed for some sleep or to continue wearing during the day whilst caring for your little one. The bottoms are spot print and fit over your bump, while the T-shirt has a crew neckline and is also bump accommodating.
