Hi girls, just wondering what did you wear in hospital when you were in labour? I'm thinking a dark button down nightie would be good. Anyone know where to get one at moment?

Definitely get more than one, my waters leaked all over one and the others came in very handy for feeding and the next few days in the hospital. I never wear nighties and had pj's with me for after but I didn't use them at all

Definitely get a few. I threw up on mine and waters broke on another. I wore pj bottoms after the birth and tops with buttons in them for feeding. Was a bit comfort walking around.

I coudn't find one, but it doesn't really need to be dark, as once baba is born you can change again. But if they are in penneys/dunnes, then that's probably best to go for! I also had 3/4 length pyjama bottoms, as my nighty was quite short, but I was roasting.
