Yes, I know, when it comes to sleepwear, loungewear, and underwear, I am a very lucky girl. Being part of a lingerie family, I definitely have better access to robes, sleepshirts, bras, panties, etc. than the average person. With reason, of course. That said, my husband, Ken, who works at Natori and heads e-commerce as one of his many responsibilities, gives me grief if I start placing too many orders. So while I have access to amazing Natori products, I have to control myself.
The exception is clothes for the hospital. With this baby’s birth quickly approaching, I knew that I did not have to ask Ken for permission to get comfortable clothes, since I am pushing a baby — HIS baby — out. If he gives me grief for this, we are going to have to have a little (aka big) conversation.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it’s totally RIDICULOUS that I care what I look like in the hospital. But who wants to wear some gown that opens in the back that a bazillion other people have worn in the past? Mothers know what goes on in delivery rooms. NARSTY!!! SO, like my birth with Cruzzie, it is very important that I have a hospital bag packed with only the best lounge wear items — stylish and comfortable.
These are the items that I ordered and have already packed away in my hospital bag for Little Baby Girl Natori!
Natori Affinity Cotton Mandarin Tunic
When I gave birth to Cruzzie, I had a similar Natori sleepshirt that I was obsessed with. It is long enough to walk around the hospital in by itself, and the buttons provide easy access for breastfeeding. Plus, something about the collar screams “put together” and shows that you are a little less disheveled than you actually are….
I absolutely love the bright color of this sleepshirt. Nothing better to brighten a hospital hallway with some cheery turquoise!
The sleepshirt is the perfect lightweight fabric and is 100% cotton. Comfortable to sit, lie, and walk around in, while looking sophisticated and upbeat.
Natori Shangri-La Robe
This robe is one of the best sellers at Natori, and has been for years. It is also my go-to present for mother’s and friends’s mothers. It is an all around winner — the solid jersey is lightweight and ultra-soft, making it a perfect topper when you are cold or a little embarrassed about the loungewear you are wearing underneath (but if you have all these Natori items for loungewear in the hospital you will NOT be embarrassed. Trust me)
