What do you wear at night to sleep in while breastfeeding?

I dont have any "nursing" clothing. I try to just wear tops that I can pull myself out of easily. Lol. Normally a tight tank top or shirt so my nursing pads stay put too. Lol.

  • Personally I only wore a t-shirt or sweat shirt to bed while nursing with no bra or pads or anything. We coslept and both baby and I laid on a waterproof sheet so if I leaked it was no big deal. I also didn't own any nursing tops. I had several nursing tanks that I wore as bras underneath my regular tops and I just lifted my regular tops and undid the nursing tank to nurse in public.

  • I almost always sleep with a nursing tank on. I hate waking up with leaked milk all over me so I always wear my breast pads. Sleep bras are good, but I only like the one layer ones. I have a double layer one from Motherhood that is so comfy and more supportive, but it is a pain to keep out of the way when nursing.
