Comfy pajamas are always a good idea, but when you're pregnant–and comfortable sleep is hard to come by–they're 100% essential. Yes, of course your oversize threadbare college tees will work (at least for a while) but eventually you'll want an upgrade. (Especially for the hospital and those early days at home.)

Maternity pajamas are generally designed to last through every trimester and often double as nursing pajamas postpartum. With comfy waistbands that can sit above or below the belly, most styles are as adaptable to growing bellies as they are kind on c-section incisions. And while it's obvious details like ruching and fold-over panels that make them maternity appropriate, the choice of fabric is also key. Stretchy and breathable fabrics like bamboo, cotton and modal make the best maternity pajamas in every season.

So whether you're just getting started or looking for the perfect pair to take you over the finish line, we've rounded up some of our favorite maternity pajamas out there. Congrats and sweet dreams, mama!
