So I settled for a portable mini crib which is 10 inches shorter than standard cribs and has wheels on it so I can have it next to my bed or move it to the nursery. Instead of having a crib crib and then a bassinet etc.
So you ladies that have your hospital bag all ready and set up what did you pack? How about your DH/OH, do they have their own bag?
No packing with me yet, I'm going to leave that another few weeks. I'm just going to pack a change of clothes for dh in my bag, just t shirt and underwear, he's not bringing his own bag. He doesn't have or need that much! I'm pretty sure at least half my bag will be snacks for us though!!
Oh geez, you ladies are so prepared. I havnt started on my bag yet. I figured I would wait until 34 weeks.
Did you guys buy special outfits for baby (in hospital and for the way home)? I figured that I would just from my newborn size collection?!? a going home outfit is just for sentimental reasons right?? First pictures home etc??
My arm was fine yesterday after that jag but today its super inchy and i dont wanna inch lol
Im 29 weeks tomorrow and ive been overly prepared i have my hospital bag done and nappy bag ive even pulled it out and re-done it lol. Baby's bag should be fine but its my bag not sure if ill have enough of everything lol might get more materntiy pads as the pack i have only has 10 in it. Need to buy some snacks/juice to.. and i have a homing coming outfit for her. Which Ryan said he'll bring up later on as i know ill be kept in for few days. I keep getting told at least 3 days from people as im wanting to breast feed and its my first lol but who knows.
Ryan wont be staying over night with me he's gonna come home so when his mum bring him back up he'll bring carseat and home coming outfit although im thinking if i have enough space i could just squeeze that outfit into my own bag and he can just bring the seat.
I didn't think they kept you in for any length because you breastfeed. I can't remember if you were a special case or not sorry! As far as I knew it didn't make a difference, I know the room I was sharing in, we were all pretty much discharged at the same time, so many cases and some were bf, some not. We all just stayed 1 night.
I don't have my bag packed yet, mainly becasue I want new PJ's for afterwards and i'm waiting for funds to get them to pack! I have 1 outfit for baby so far and keep meaning to write a list. I really need to get more organised!!!
