There are sure to be days where you don’t get out of your PJ’s and that’s totally ok. Comfort is key for catching those all-important Z’s during your pregnancy. And functionality comes a close second for post-labour and nursing. Finding the right maternity sleepwear for you is easy, it’s the getting comfy that’s the hard part.
We asked our Facebook Pregnancy group members to recommend the best maternity sleepwear and these are the brands they recommend.
