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 or pumping, 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.

Check out our go-to postpartum pajamas which are perfect for leaving the hospital and spending cozy time at home.
