Well i'm booked in for c section but they say only for 2 days ( go in thursday and be home saturday). I've had 2 previous big babies (9lb 12 and 10lb 9 oz) so i was gonna take 3 sets of newborn and 3 sets of 0-3months just to be on the safe side and hubby can bring more in if need. Hope that helps a little x

could be that i get to stay longer due to being a first time mom and having done the surgery just last year so might not have that quick of recovery as the surgery was very invasive.

if you are bringing 6 pcs of clothing in 2 different sizes for 2 days worth of stay, then i should bring double that so 6 newborn and 6 0-3mon i suppose.......

what about the rest of you how many days will you be staying in the hospital and how many sets of clothing will you bring for your baby?

I would check with your OB and/or the hospital. In the US, many hospitals provide clothes for the baby during your stay and you just need a going home outfit. At least, this is what I was told by my hospital

I am having a natural delivery so far and my county allows 24 hours stay after delivery. So I am only bringing a newborn and a 0-3 going home outfit and a newborn and a 0-3 hospital picture outifit
