I think it would be like that if I went to a consultant led unit. My midwife led unit lets you out once the paediatrician has been round (usually around 10am I think!) so it could be an overnight, or I could be lucky and only be in a few hours
No harm in putting another pack of mat pads in though. My bag already weighs a tonne
1 pair pj bottoms
2 big tops ( ohs )
1 thin dressing gown
1 pair slippers
20 maternity pads
40 disposable breastpads
1 bottle antibacterial lotion
10 pairs knickers
3 pairs black cotton bottoms ( for coming home or wearing under my nightie, depening how bad i bleed)
thats it i think.. cant think off the top of my head.
Will update with the babys list and random bits such as camera,money ect when i sort that out Can anyone think of anything ive missed clothes/protection wise? x
I have to say, Asda were fantastic for the pads and bits for hospital - I got more breast pads, sanitary pads and disposable knickers and they're all really cheap!
I've drawn up a plan of action and put it on our fridge - although I know roughly what to do when the time comes, panic will no doubt take over and my mind will go blank. This paper has all the phone numbers I need, who to contact, what to take etc etc.
But I am planning on baby wearing vests and sleepsuits its first few weeks so am taking in some newborn and 0-3 months vests and suits as the baby might be bigger in length or weight and not fit newborn BUT do I need to pack socks for baby of he is going to be wearing sleepsuits?
Like do they wera them under the suit or anything?
