Default What to wear after birth?

As far as I know, hospitals here keep you until your baby is good and healthy and start breastfeeding. That can be 1 to 5 days. What should I pack for my post partum stay? I would think PJs since a nightgown would be impractical for BFing.

Any ideas?

I stayed in either the hospital gowns or i bought some gowns that had a few buttons on top to undue, i also brought a nursing bra to wear after the first day (bc i got leaky and had to use the nursing pads.) Leaving the hospital i wore (thin)sweat pants and a baggy Tshirt. Dont worry about trying to look all cute bc, trust me, at that moment all you will care about is comfort.
