A few questions from a very confused first timer


Hey
I was wondering a few things, does the whooping cough vaccine make the mum to be feel very unwell- I've been told this a lot.

What do I need for a Moses blanket to make it up? I've got fitted sheets and blankets but I was wondering how I make it up and if I needed something else?

Finally do the clothes in a maternity bag need to be new born or can I use 0-3?

Thank you
Nonie

I don't know anything about the whooping cough vaccine so can't offer any advice on that.

Moses basket should have a fitted liner that goes under the mattress and up the side, fitted sheets over the mattress, then however you choose to keep baby warm (blankets, swaddle blankets, sleeping bag etc)

newborn or 0-3 will depend on the size of your baby. If you have a tiny baby 0-3 will possibly swamp them, if you have a larger baby newborn may be too small, so take a small selection of both.

The whooping cough vaccine shouldn't make you feel ill. I'm a student midwife and I've heard a few mums-to-be say that it made their arm quite sore for a while, but none of them have felt unwell x

Thank you so much, that's given me some much needed help tbh. We've just brought the pram and been looking at cots. Do they need drop down sides?

Sorry I know I'm asking a lot of questions, I'm just so confused.

The vaccine doesn't contain love virus so you won't get I'll from the virus. Some people do feel I'll after having a jab, but it's probably because your immune system is busy creating new antibodies for the vaccine which might leave you a bit more susceptible to pick something else up in the meantime, like a cold.

I have just packed newborn stuff, but they are from different shops so slightly different sizes. The smallest I've packed fits up to 7.8lb and the largest fits up to 10lb. I haven't packed any 0-3 as I'm not expecting baby to be more than 10lb.

Moses basket just needs sheet for the mattress and a top sheet or just use blankets or baby sleeping bag.

Cot doesn't *need* drop down sides, but a lot of people find this helpful lifting baby in & out of cot. My cot doesn't have drop down sides but you can adjust the height of mattress & put it lower as baby grows.

Just wanted to add I had the whooping cough vaccine after my first. I didn't feel ill. It did make my arm a bit sore, but nothing too bad. You will be overcome with joy for your baby, so its fine!

Hi
I had a whoping cough injection and i was fine i was worried about feeling ill but i asked my doctor, midwife and the nurse did the injection and they all said they havent heard of anyone getting ill from it!

my little boy sleeps in a moses basket and we just have a fitted sheet and a blanket foldered in half and thats it. Hes fine and warm enough.

I had newborn and 0-3 clothes in my hospital bag just in case!

Our cot is a cot bed so doesnt have drop down sides so nothey dont need them!
Good luck xxx

it depends on the person, some people are more sensative then others,

but better to get it them possibly expose your baby to it once born as it can be fatal before three months old and it cannot be given to them and not much can be done to help them recover from itl....
