Holiday Gifts for New Moms: Nursing Sleepwear

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

Sleepwear may not be high on your list of holiday gifts for new moms. But it should be.

Most new mothers don't get much rest in those first few weeks or months after baby is born. I was so exhausted I could hardly find time to take a shower, much less change out of my nightie or bathrobe, all day.

And that's exactly the point. Lovely new feminine nightwear is a gift that will be both well-used and much appreciated.

First, a woman's changing post-partum body can use the extra bit of pampering while recovering from childbirth. New comfy pajamas or a lovely robe are great treats when your only fashion choices are made from a limited maternity wardrobe.

Second, a new mom can't count on sleepwear staying spotless or clean for long. There are spills from leaking boobs, unexpected baby spit-ups, and rogue diaper changing disasters in the middle of the night -- or day. So there are plenty of reasons to have more than one sleepwear set in the dresser drawer or closet.

Third, there are times when all a new mom wants to do is cuddle with her newborn, or grab a quick nap, with or without baby. Nursing sleepwear with drop-down openings make breastfeeding simple and easy.

These beautiful sleepwear sets make perfect holiday gifts for new moms. And they won't break break your gift-giving budget either.
