The best maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas

Section: Maternity

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 is vital, becuase you'll be wearing it 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. 

ASOS DESIGN Maternity mix & match 100% modal orange print set, comes in top and long bottoms or short bottom options. It's made from soft jersey material, lightweight TENCEL Modal and wood pulp, so it's fruity and good for the environment. 

Another lovely pair of checked PJs, with a 'Good Morning' slogan that will cheer you up even after a long night of feeding and crying (you, and your baby). Only available in sizes 6 to 12 though, which is a shame that they don't come in larger sizes. 

ASOS DESIGN Maternity stripe satin shirt & short pyjama set in peach is just adorable. A cute set to wear for bed and feel good in. This v-neck shirt is accompanied with matching short bottoms for a relaxed fit. Also a good set if you're baby's already here and you're breastfeeding.

Who doesn't love a bit of leopard print?! This is a maternity girls night in dream set! From New Look and only £18.99, 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.

We love the colours and heart print on this Mamalicious Maternity Nursing night dress. It has a wrap front for easing nursing at night, or just throughout the day. It's breathable, stretchy jersey material means it's also super comfortable. 

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 justifyably luxurious - and given how much time you're likely to spend in bed in the next few months, we think you deserve it. 

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.

These Maternity Black Spot Bonjour Baby Logo Jogger pyjama set is stylish and comfortable, having you feel 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.
