it usually depends if it first baby or not.. think ost places like you to stay in one night if it 1st baby but if it isnt then usually after 6 hours you are free (depending on the time baby arrives)

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

What about a jug for pouring water over your bits when you have your first wee? Or a bottle of water I guess. Apparently this makes it MUCH less painful, although I am only going on hearsay.

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.

Can I ask what may be a really stupid question?

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?

Sorry for the stupidity.

Emma.xx
