For what it is, that is alot of money!  It would be so easy to make one yourself!

The link didn’t work for me so I was not able to see it. I would suggest however that buying your own hospital gown is a complete waste of money.

Labour, delivery and immediate post-partum period is a messy business. Use the hospital gowns. If you really want, you could take a pretty nursing nightie or pair of pyjamas to wear when things are settled down and you have been cleaned up.

@Tisty1982: I bet you could make one for $10 or so… I think they’re pretty cute =) I own a couple hospital gowns just from the hospital… lol

I wore a nightgown I thought would keep me comfortable while I was in labor  and it was exactly like a hospital gown but had a closed back… and they actually made me put on one of their gowns. I don’t know if all hospitals do that but I’d be sad if I put a lot of money into something then couldn’t use it.

I have 2 girls and with my first I took my pwn PJ’s to wear and I didn’t even take them out of the bag. With the second I didn’t even pack them. With the aftermath of vaginal births i chose to wear the hospitals so I wouldn’t feel bad if the got blood or anything on them.

I used their gowns for the first day but then wore my own nicer pajamas – if you get something special, just make sure it is something you will use your first few weeks home too!  a little splurge to be comfy and happy post baby is not such a bad thing ๐Ÿ™‚

I have thought about it! But not sure if I can justify the costs.

I have a question about hospital gown. Do they have more sizes?? When I go to the OB/GYN the gowns are usually HUMONGOUS on me. For the 15mins it’s fine. But if I’m in it for 2-3 days I want something that’s not falling off me.

@regberadaisy: Most gowns are one size fits all ( or nobody). Hospitals usually have extra-large ones for obese people but not smaller ones.

Most moms here go home the same day or the day after though.

hmmm…before you spend the money, make sure you are allowed to wear it.  I know of some hospitals that do not allow you to wear anything but the hospital gown…

I had one of those cute gowns..and right when it got close to contractions my FI helped me change into it. Then, the nurse came in and told me I had to change back because the hospital wanted me in a hospital gown! GRR!

I didn’t even think about it, I just threw on the hospital gown. I didn’t care about wrecking something I didn’t pay for haha!

My hospital rocked, I stayed 4 luxurious days after my VB…

I’m not sure why you would want to?  Your link didn’t work for me but are these also open-backed?  I would want to be out of one of those as fast as possible, no matter how cute they are.

Plus, everyone at the hospital will think you’re nuts for bringing in your own ๐Ÿ˜‰
