If you plan a hospital birth, take a nursing gown with you; you'll be glad for it when people you've never met before bustle in and out of your room with minimal warning, and you'll love how easy it is to bring your baby oh-so-close. If you're birthing at home, make sure there's a nursing gown or two in your drawer so you can snuggle up with your new babe and comfortably nurse at will. Quick and relatively easy to make, this nursing nightgown is something no new mom should be without.
