just looking at getting mine and little mans hospital bags packed! how many vest, sleepsuits and nappies do i need to pack for him? for myslef i know what to take just unsure of ammounts of certain things for him! thanks in advance and apologies if this has been asked a thousand times before xx
I think it's different between the UK and the US, but here (us) the hospital supplied diapers and clothing for her while we were there. They also sent us home with a pack of diapers and everything else that was in her room (because they have to throw it out when we leave otherwise, sanitary reasons..) But, we did bring 3 outfits for her some newborn and some 0-3 month things as you never quite know how big they are going to be! We put her in her own outfit for the trip home.
I've put in 3 vests, 3 sleepsuits, 1 little jacket for going home (it's a soft cardigan-like one), scratch mittens, hat, around 10 nappies (will send DH out for more if we end up having to stay any longer than the normal stay of 6 hours). I've put in socks, but am not 100% sure why since the sleepsuits have feet. I suppose in case they're just in a vest at any stage.
I'm brining 10 nappies, I know the hospital supplies them, but i want to have some of mine as I hate having the hospital supply me things. Also bringing a few cloth diapers too (depending on babies size). As for outfits, I got two onzies, and two outfits, one in Newborn and one in 0-3 months... A swaddler, and a blanket for our carseat. Chances are baby will be getting a lot of skin/on/skin contact and mostly be in a diaper with me at the hospital. So not piling up on clothes, if we need extra DH can always stop at home.
4 sleepsuits (One really cute one that OH picked out to bring her home in)
A little Jacket (again to come home in)
10 nappies - another 10 in a emergency bag which will stay in the boot of the car should we need it
Small pack of wipes
Thats what I can remember off the top of my head without waddling upstairs to her nursery - baby brain! haha
