recommendation please - nighties for hospital

still haven't packed my hospital bag :innocent:

usually a PJs girls, but was going to get a nightie (or two) just in case I end up having a C-section. Absolutely detest shopping so was looking for a recommendation as to where to purchase such an item. Preferably with buttons (for easy breastfeeding), 100% cotton with no 'cutesy' animals or slogans on the front (especially Disneyfied Winnie the Pooh).

Thanks in advance ladies blowkiss

I think you should get a sexy slinky silk number with lots of lace and bows on, in bright pink !! :snigger:

Sorry, couldn't resist being stooopid :D

Have you tried tesco or matalan? they sometimes have good ranges and quite cheap too so you can buy a couple

Jen - thanks for posting this I'm having exactly the same trouble! Been scouring the internet for weeks for something that's plain, dark coloured, simple and cheap preferably with buttons. Plain and dark coloured seem to exist but cheap does not! At the moment I'm all packed for going commando with a dark dressing gown :snigger:

Matalan are great for these things. Primark also have loads of nightwear in at the moment (it's the best time of year to buy nightwear!!). I got a pack of two navy blue pinstripe, button down nighties from Mothercare ...although I can only find these now... http://www.mothercare.com/M2b-Navy-Strip…797041&mcb=core

*not fz endorsed link*

Just for other visitors to this thread who are looking for hospital nightwear...If you labour and deliver vaginally then short, cheap nighties are great because whatever you wear will probably get hitched up around your waist and then covered in blood, waters, poo and wee. You don't really need buttons for that one because you'll probbaly want to whip it off when your baby gets here. If you dont then you can always pull the sheet up over your lower body and hitch it up above your boob for feeding.

Once you have messy bit done and you're all sorted with a wash, clean knicks and a pad then you can wear button up jimjams if you're more comfy.

Shame you dont have a Primark thats where I got mine from, they're only £2.50 each. Anyway, George are quite good as well if you dont have any luck at Matalan. xxx

okay, just had a quick peek on the Matalan and George at Asda websites (didn't want to cross Edinburgh for hideous shopping trip if going to be a waste of time).
Couldn't see anything suitable on either site - all pale colours or not cotton. Also checked out tescos - once again all nighties for sale are made form cheap satin nonsense.

Honestly - you'd think I was asking for the moon!

Looks like I will have to brave the shops and try places like H&M and Debenhams X(

matalan or ethel austin, larger asda stores should be good too. a

i actually went to a 'local' charity shop (not like tenovus etc as they are more expensive) and picked up 2. not gonna wear them after and if they get ruined it doesnt matter!

I picked up two yesterday in Bon Marche. I know - too cool for cats me!!!!

2 for £12 which I thought was ok ish. One plain black one with a white thingy at the top and buttons and a dark purple one with spots on and buttons again.

Might be worth a gander?

Jens, can I suggest you pack your hospital bag soonish? We ended up packing mine when I was in established labour - not good! (Oh, and I had Baby at 37+2 so not much further on than you are now!)

You wouldn't believe the things I ended up without - thank goodness I only had to stay one night.

Having said that I did pack a nightie but ended up wearing the hospital gown all night as that was actually easy for feeding whilst I was trying to get the hang of things. Now I have a nice pair of nursing PJs from La Redoute - cheap but very easy to feed in. PJs are definitely the best (assuming no c. section wound or at least once it's healed up of course) because it can be pretty chilly when you're up for an hour at a time in the middle of the night!

Good luck - I'm so chuffed to see you're so very nearly there!
Kitty

Jen, save your legs, I've got 3 that you can have. They are a generous size 16, don't know if thats any use to you. Two of them are a sort of tourquoise colour and the other is a dark lilac. They button to just below the boob level and are cotton, baggy and comfortable, but not remotely glamorous! And yes, I have your address from the parcel you sent with my cardigans in. I'll put them in the post tomorrow.

Could always do what I did and find yourself when it's all over wearing just your bra and socks, bra I can kind of understand but why the hell did I keep my socks on!!
