New Mommy Grand Prize Giveaway: Hot Mama Gowns

When I found out that I was pregnant for the second time, there was one thing on my mind that I wanted to get… ok, maybe there were a few things, but there was one company that really stood out in my mind from the first time I saw it.  Hot Mama Gowns!  Not only does the name and logo grab your attention, but the product itself is genius.

I loathed wearing the ugly, drab, worn by way too many strangers hospital gown when visitors came to see Sophia and I in the hospital after she was born.  What I gave birth in {or had my Cesaran performed in} wasn’t as much of a concern to me, but to walk around the halls of the hospital in, have your friends and family see you in, and have so many pictures taken of you in… now that was my concern!

The idea for Hot Mama Gowns was born at the same time our daughter was born in May of 2006.  After having an awesome pregnancy and a pretty swift, uncomplicated delivery; I had the clarity to really evaluate my surroundings.  Namely the itchy, chemical smelling, faded hospital gown I was wearing.
The standard hospital gown was far from stylish, comfortable, or functional.  The gown got in the way of skin to skin contact and breastfeeding, two things that were very important to me.  I couldn’t wait to change into something that was comfy and allowed me to bond with my baby girl.

If you know me at all, and by reading the blog over even a short amount of time, you probably do… I am very modest.  I think this is one of the reasons that I feel like I didn’t succeed with breastfeeding Sophia.  Why am I bringing this up within my Hot Mama Gown review?  Because this gown is made for exactly someone like me!  It’s fun {isn’t my Shalon Gown gorgeous!?}, it features the same snaps on the shoulders that hospital gowns do {which was very important to my nurses}, and it makes breastfeeding and skin to skin contact easy and discreet, if you want it to be that way.

Hot Mama Gowns

I chose to wear the regular hospital gown during my C-section and then change as soon as the nurses let me, into my Hot Mama Gown.  Why?  Because I knew I wanted to be comfortable for the rest of my stay and I didn’t want to chance anything messing up my gown!

The fabric was lovely… I got so many compliments on the gown.  Most had never heard of Hot Mama Gowns before, so I got to share the great news!  The Lactation Consultant at the hospital even wrote it down to share with her patients in the Breastfeeding Classes she teaches!

I would absolutely recommend these gowns to anyone who wants to feel like a Hot Mama before, during, or after delivery.  If you’re looking for a special gift for a Mama-to-be, this would be something so special to give her!  I’ve already worn mine again after coming home.  It’s just an easy nightgown, especially when I’m still recovering from surgery and breastfeeding constantly through the night!

  2. That seems like a great idea! I also don't like wearing the hospital gowns (yuck). But wow... that's a lot of money for a nightgown!!! I might have to really beg the hubby for this one :) HEHE
    1. They are a bit expensive, but they have a lower price point line that you could check out. Also don't forget that you'll use it once you get home too! They're comfy and really make breastfeeding easier in the middle of the night!
