Just heading into my first winter with a bub and breastfeeding.

I was wondering what other mother's like to wear to bed to sleep when they are breastfeeding during the night!!

It was so easy during summer.
Just a sleeping nursing bra, pulls easily to the side to feed.
I was wearing nighties that open with buttons, which are a bit annoying, or otherwise I would wear shorts with a loose nursing singlet.

Now it's getting colder for those of us in the southern hemisphere, and I have tried wearing my usual tracksuit and lifting it up to feed.
With the nursing singlet and nursing bra.
It's a tad annoying and I usually end up wearing two tracksuits when it's really cold, too!

I just got a couple of button up flannelette sets from our local charity store, just in case I bought brand new ones and found they were annoying in other ways, and I didnt end up wearing them very much .... like opening the buttons to feed leaves the top of the chest bare, so the next night I wore a warm but light long sleeve top under that, so after unbuttoning the flanny shirt, I still have to lift up a lighter shirt.

I would love to hear what other mothers wear to bed when still breastfeeding!

It's still pretty warm in our house in the winter so I usually wear the same thing all year round on top- just a stretchy tank top. For bottoms I switch out shorts for pants.

My son was born in the middle of winter last year, I just wore button up flannelette with a nursing singlet underneath. In summer I just wear the nursing singlet and shorts. I love my nursing singlet as it has a built in bra and unclips at the top like a regular nursing bra.

iv just been wearing a long sleeve button up nighty, but i may switch to flannies as it gets colder.
i have a long sleeve top that opens at the side of the breast (no need to pull it up yay!) so that will probably get some use too
