To all the fashionable mothers and soon to be mothers out there - I have a Yes or No question.

[deleted account] ( 31 moms have responded )

Would you buy a matching pajama and infant set for the mother's overnight trip to the hospital for delivery. This set would include 2 sets of sleepwear; one for newborn baby and one (matching) for mother. The set would also include a (matching) overnight bag for hospital stay materials (toiletries)

Yes, Yes, Yes, I bought two of my daughters matching sets when they had their sons. They loved them and everyone commented on how cute they were...my biggest problem is...I can't find a set for my third daughter who is expecting a girl....I have looked everywhere.

Nope, wouldn't buy it. I brought my own nighty but didn't end up using it because it was MUCH easier to just use the hospital gowns supplied (they do the laundry, no muss no fuss!).

I would love to say yes, it sounds adorable... but double-check with your hospital. They may not allow the baby to wear anything but what they have (sanitation issue - my daughter couldn't wear her own clothes until after she was discharged.)

It sounds cute, but the hard thing is the sizes, for me I bought a ton of newborn clothes and my son never fit any of them (10 pounds). But I think it sounds very cute, hope everything goes well :)

I think it's adorable! I had a c-section, but I wore a plain black nightgown. My little girl stayed in her hospital clothes until we did a photo shoot in our room for her first pictures! haha! Oh and she had on her boots with the fur! I got them at target!! lol. i would have loved the idea of matching jammies, but I had to have a gown on so nothing touched my stitches. I say go for it!

I would love it too, but would probably wear them at home rather than hospital

definitely yes! you are probably not feeling super cute right now so this should help. make sure you take lots of pics because you will be so tired - the memories will not be clear ;)

Yes and no! I would buy them for when you both get home but, not for at the hospital. When you get home you can take alot of really cute pictures too.

Sounds adorable - do it but don't be disappointed if you have to wait until home to wear them. (It would look great on a holiday card!)

When I had mine (c-section) I brought my own nightgown but I was retaining too many fluids that I swelled up and my nightgown didn't fit. Maternity nightgown! Was too tight after gave birth!

We kept the baby in hospital clothes too just for easy diaper changes, but as soon as we were home it was dress up time!

Awww!!  I want a matching set :) Mine are 8,6 and 4...I think it would be cute to get matching pj's...not sure where to find them though:)

I would definetly suggest some comfy nice pajama's, also consider nursing pj's.  I think it is a cute idea, however, you will likely be changing your baby a lot and maybe not real practical considering how much you will be changing your baby's soiled clothing.  But if you will look forward to this, I say go ahead and have fun with it.

I think that sounds pretty cute. I don't know how much use they would be in the hospital but I would use them at home. I had a c-section so there were no pj's for me.

I think it sounds like a wonderful idea. It is a really busy time, so try to get at least one picture together! It sounds like fun to me.

I think that this idea sounds absolutely adorable and any mom-to-be would love it. However, when you are in the hospital, you tend to be wearing one of those lovely hospital gowns. If the new mommy is feeling up to it (and didn't have a Cesarean), I'm sure it will go over very well. The nurses will probably get a kick out of it too. Worse comes to worse, the new mommy can always enjoy this gift at home with her new baby when she has healed up a little bit.

I would say No on the matching pj's...I was in the hopsital 4 days (c-section) the first day and 1/2 was in a hospital gown and the rest was my own comfy Pj's. For the baby we had so many "newborn" clothes that I am glad we had them at the hospital to keep changing her (we went through a couple of outfits a day and at night we always put the hsopital t-shirt back on her...) otherwise she would have been out of the newborn clothes the first week home and not have worn any of them...FYI watch the weight when buying clothes...if the baby is over 8 lbs go for the 0-3 months not newborn...
