Would like a nice new overnight bag for my hospital bag... Suggestions where to buy?


I've got it in my head that I would like a new bag for my hospital bag. People have told me at pointless and all that but it's just something id like to do :-)

Where did you get your hospital bags? What did you use? :-)

I got mine from Matalan! It's just a black hold all but its apparently the lightest in the world lol! It was only 15 too I'm more for practicality than style

I'm just using an old pull along small suitcase. However, I WAS going to buy a radley bag. Went in to the shop but came out with a changing bag instead hehe. Depends on your budget really, you could look in primark as they have some pretty bags which are large enough. I am planning on going to matalan this weekend so I think I will have a nosy at their bags. Although I have the old suitcase thing I'd prefer a new bag but don't want to spend much on it after buying the changing bag....

Another good place to look are outlets. My local one has about 3 or 4 bag places. From purses to giant suitcases so it might be worth looking in to that

To add to my previous post I went to Matalan and came back with a weekend bag. It cost 10 pounds and holds loads of stuff. So I am happy

I've been thinking the same thing! And your post prompted me to make a decision! I was going to go for a Cath Kidston one. However, after typing overnight/travel bags into google for ages, in the end, I've gone for this one!

Not sure if its your thing, but it got good reviews! :-) x

Tulip and Nibeley they are both nice bags

Hungary about your four bags!! I will be taking two in total, one for my stuff and the other for LO's. There are things I won't be taking though so mine is just the essentials. I literally live a 5 minute drive up the road so anything extra I need my OH can go and get for me. All my toiletries are minuture to save space too

Hi I bought a small suitcase on wheels from Cath Kidston - sounds extreme but it's only hand luggage sized, honestly! I'm in for 1-2 nights after the birth as I have GD, so I treated myself at 16 weeks after I found out to cheer myself up! I bought it on sale though so it wasn't quite as much as it states online (http://www.cathkidston.co.uk/p-18539...errer=category). I've put my overnight stuff in that along with baby's things for a few days (we don't live near to the hospital, so had to make sure that we were prepared), plus I have an old Fat Face shoulder bag for the delivery stuff, which is all quite minimal.

I don't think that buying yourself a bag is pointless if you're going to use it afterwards! I go away a few times a year to visit friends and family so I'll be getting some use out of mine, and needed a new bag anyway. I have been surprised at how little space I actually need though (started packing mine in dribs and drabs, not much left to put in) and I don't really understand the need for loads of stuff! x
