@Evie19:  I live in my button down night shirts at home. So easy to open & close. I got them at target.

Summer I just had maternity bra and shorts when it was hot but otherwise loose, cotton with a deep neck or button down. I had a couple of nursing chemise tops with little slits to..pop out, but I found them way too uncomfortable to sleep in.

Tank tops! I live in tank tops! Makes it to wear I don’t have to life my shirt up.. I can just pull the neck down! I got most of mine from Target.

I had a summer baby so I slept in nursing tanks and shorts or underwear.

I never used any kind of nursing wear. Day and night, I wear regular strappy tanks with shelf bra and elastic straps. I tuck nursing pads into the shelf bra and just pull it down to nurse, super easy. When my baby was younger I leaked a LOT at night so I needed something to hold nursing pads tightly in place without shifting. And it’s a lot faster to not have to deal with buttons or snaps.

I wear a t-shirt and boxers, nursing bra underneath.  When I get out of bed to go to the nursery, I put on my bathrobe over my PJs.  Then I pull my shirt up, pull the nursing bra over, and nurse in a glider with my robe open.  It works for me temperature-wise, because I don’t like wearing much to bed, but I get cold when I get out.

ETA:  I should add that I have nursing pads in my bra, because when I’m feeding on one side, the other always leaks.

I just sleep with a cami and yoga pants. I just take my arms out of the straps and wear it off my boobs. DD nurses practically all night.

Not trying to hijack this thread, but I do have a question based on the responses I am seeing:

DH and I have always slept naked. It sounds like breast leakage could be a problem after birth, though. Do most of you find it necessary to wear some kind of nursing bra or other padding at night to contain this issue?

@missrain:  yes. Until week 7 when I started pumping before bed. You’ll need underwear for a while too. 

@Evie19:  being sexy will be the very last thing on your mind!

@missrain:  yeah, pretty sure your bed would be covered in milk and blood and sweat if you went au naturel
