if you are going to bottle feed then yes i would put some bibs in as i have found bottled fed babies seem to sick up more than breastfed babies. (well thats how it was with my last 2)

I have just packed toothpaste and brush now as I ALWAYS forget to take this no matter where I go, holidays, sleepovers you name it I forget toothpaste and brush !! Tesco sell the little mini tubes for 89p.

Facewipes are another I couldn't live without and slippers !

Pillow will def be coming with me as when I was admitted to hosp back in first tri they gave me a horrid flat plastic pillow thingy that may as well of been the doormat, it was so awful.

I will probably end up taking everything I don't need and nothing that I do

Breastpads x 6
Maternity pads x10 (pack of 10)
Pack of three cheapy knickers
Nursing bras x2

For baby:

Two pairs of socks (paranoid about losing a sock )
Scratch mitts
2 hats (one fancy one which might be a bit big, and one plain white tiny one)
Going home outfit
A couple of nappies (though the hosp. provides anyway)
Babygro for wearing in hospital, though I'm hoping not to be in long!
2 bibs
(Still to buy a cardi or light jacket for going home in)

To put in at last minute:

Notes!
Phone
Some change for food/drinks
Mp3 player (and dock if I'm allowed!)

Great post - have my hospital and baby bag already packed and at the ready.

I'm gonna add magazines/books to my bag as I have no idea how long I'll be there and also overdo it on the snack front as thats where we went wrong last time!

This has also reminded me to update the hospital action plan thing so family know what to do - my father in law will look after our son when I'm in hospital.

When i was admitted over xmas a lady's water kept going in bits here and there but enough to soak through, she went through ALL her nighties and had none left (sounds like she had a few) and ended up in a hospital gown

this reason ANY spare space i have i will fill with nighties loL! worst time to be uncomfy!

You think so? My cmu like to have you out as soon as possible after baby is born. I'm hoping to be out quick! I guess I could pack more, but I'm not sure whether I'll use 10 maternity pads in a few hours. I can always send someone out for more. I only live 5mins from the hospital anyway. Will buy another pack of cheapy knickers though, they were only 1 for 3 pairs in asda
