There's no denying the luxurious feel of comfy postpartum pajamas. They're ideal for a day lounging while trying to recover from birthing your new favorite human. To be honest, they are so comfy we never want to take them off. And these aren't the only reasons postpartum pajamas are a must-have: most are discreet enough for nursing, won't ride up while you sleep and have a cool stretchy fabric, too.

Sure, an old t-shirt has its place, (I mean, I have favorites from 10 years ago) but when you're craving sleep after nursing an infant around the clock, we promise you comfy postpartum pajamas will become your new feel-good style staple.

Here, check out our go-to postpartum pajamas:

1. Belabumbum Cozy Henley Nightie

There's something special about having comfy after you've given birth. Not only is it a necessity when you're busy caring for a newborn, but it just makes you feel so warm and safe. That's why we're digging this waffle knit henley nightie that screams comfort. The best part is that it's made to support you before, during, and after your pregnancy, so you can use it year after year while you grow your family.


2. Isabel Maternity by Ingrid & Isabel maternity nursing dress

If you thought it was impossible to feel like you're on cloud nine after giving birth, guess again. For starters, it's made of super soft cotton knit that feels like butter. It's also loose fitting, so you don't feel restricted—which is the last thing you'll want while nursing.


3. A Pea in the Pod Nursing 3 Piece Sleep Set

Stylish and practical this set features a robe, pajama bottoms and a top complete with a clip-down nursing mechanism for quick and easy breastfeeding.


4. Dagsmejan's Maternity + nursing nightdress

Postpartum life can be unpredictable (hello night sweats) and you'll need to keep a balanced pair of pajamas on standby; the kind that will keep you comfortable with or without covers. Dagsmejan's maternity and nursing nightdress is a lightweight, breathable and exceptionally soft sleepwear designed to keep the best temperature for sleep and beat the night sweats with its patented technology.


5. Lake Pima maternity short-long set

These maternity pjs are perfect for lounging and sleeping—basically everything you'll do the first few months after your baby is born. The pants are bump-friendly, which is perfect when your belly is still larger than usual post birth. Buy your pre-pregnancy size, but if in doubt, size up as cotton shrinks.


6. Ekouaer maternity pajamas set

For a soft, comfortable pajama set, look no further than Ekouaer. For starters, the adjustable elastic waistband gives you the perfect fit during every stage of your pregnancy and beyond. Also nice? The elastic side-ruched gives tons of space for your growing belly and the side opening provides easy access for nursing. Oh, yes, and the 95% rayon, 5% spandex blend is super silky-soft.
