What do you wear to nurse your baby at night, especially for cosleeping?

All my night shirts are pullover and I have a hard time keeping them up high enough over the breast for my toddler, so it doesn't seem very safe to use with a newborn.

I can't find a nursing shirt with long sleeves, only camis or tanks. A robe doesn't seem safe for cosleeping either. Baby is due in Feb and I get really cold at night so I'd like something that will cover my shoulders and arms but still work for nursing.

Ideas? What works for you?

I just turn the heater up and wear stretchy spaghetti straps.

They make nursing gowns with slits down the front. I got mine at Target lo these many years ago; don't know if they still carry them but JC Penney has always had a prety good selection too.

Mine did not have long sleeves, though.

Look for a cross front long sleeved shirt.... or anything that is low cut enough to pull down.   I generally wear cami's to bed... but I overheat at night, so I don't wear much to bed!   :)

I have been wearing a button down sweater over my nursing tank tops.  I don't nurse much laying down in bed yet (my dd is only a month old) but on the few times I have, it has worked well.
