I think they're sooo unnecessary and a big waste of money. I've never given birth, but I imagine and hear that it's a rather messy process. So it's spending a bunch of money on something that's just going to get icky and stained and blech. I guess maybe getting it for someone who is planning on having a bunch of babies might be a bit better since it could be reused... But personally, I'd rather dirty up the hospital's stuff, or just bare all and wash myself off afterwards x)

The whole plan of these gowns is that they are disposable. Which completely floors me because some of the price tags are out of this world - $50+. One of those links has even MORE expensive gowns.

To be honest, during transition and the end of labor, modesty tends to go out the window. For some women it FLIES out the window. But, I can see buying a really cute gown like this and putting it on AFTER the baby is born and before anyone comes to see the baby (if there are folks in the waiting room), and wearing it as a nightgown for those early days when everything is topsy-turvy.

I'm thinking about sewing one up for myself. I wore a regular nightgown with Dalton and it didn't get messy. I really liked having something of my own on and it helped to feel somewhat normal when the family all came in.

I cant imagine spending $50 on a disposable gown! Even $20 seems a lot ... it really seems quite extravagent. I would think the soon to be mommy would rather I spend $20 to $50 on diapers (and I would rather get something like diapers).

But I am very practical in the financial sense. The dresses are kinda pretty too.

I hadn't heard of it until I was stalking some of the birth stories from the oldest DDCs... apparently it's something that is pretty popular with celebrities. Who knew

Yeah I guess I could see if you have a bunch of extra money to throw around Even for after delivery, it makes more sense to me to get a regular nightgown or something that you can keep wearing once you get home. Like this one that I saw on Amazon in the similar items to the disposable gown. Cute and way more practical

I think these gowns are probably used more during labor than during delivery. Just from looking at some of the comments and reviews, I get that idea. On the other hand, my hospital didn't provide me with a paper gown - they used a regular hospital gown, so maybe it's different depending on where you are delivering.

That is a cute gown!

Or tequila.... :drool:

The Pretty Pushers are only $25 - just sayin'.

I'm kinda at a loss this time because of being at the birth center and recovery being so short... I dunno what I'm going to do. I guess making nursing nightgowns are a better idea.

On the other hand, if I did make a super cute dress like these, I could change into it before going to the birth center...
