A nursing nightgown is not work attire for a professional nurse. It is a loose fitting gown meant for pregnant women in the maternity ward. It is meant for comfort as the woman prepares to give birth and then recovers after pregnancy has ended. It is convenient because the looseness extends to the shoulder and so makes nursing far easier. That is the brilliance of the design; it is comfortable to pregnant women and then becomes an easy way to nourish the infant in the evening.
These comfortable gowns are made of fine fabric that is either cotton or a synthetic fiber. Comfort depends on the situation, so it is possible to find a gown that has very minimal shoulders to stay cool or else is more enveloping and made of a thicker material to stay warm. As women vary in their metabolism and babies like warm skin, taking a look at this selection is a great start.
