    If your baby grows have feet attached (all in ones) you wont
    need baby socks or booties, you wont need the changing mat either.

    Yep definatly more nappies, they could go through around 8 per day.
    Just a couple of ideas:

    Change for hospital car park/vending machines/patientline bedside tv & internet.

    Snacks/Drinks for you and your birth partner, also something to take your mind
    off the early labour, like a magazine/book/puzzle book ect. x

    Yeah midwife said to get high energy drinks but not lucozade bcos fizzy so I said I have a pack of small cartons of orange juice (straws attached for ease) and she said that was a idea, you need high calorie drinks and when I looked in hosp shop/vending machine and bottle drink is 1.20 so could get pricey!

    Mumtobe do they do internet in your hosp? I wanted to take laptop but assumed would be a no like using mobiles, but I really want to skype DH and show him LO asap!

    Ooh, do we need to take our own towels for the shower? It's a silly question that I totally overlooked!

    In our hospital we have patientline at every bed, its a screen on a
    big adjustable stand that you just pull infront of you when your
    in bed, its got tv internet & phone on it, you have to buy a card
    to make it work, so you would buy a £5 card, and it will charge you
    £1 a day for the tv, then whatever per min for phone ect, i love them,
    i used it when i was on maternity ward with my daughter, i got to watch
    the soaps, go online and make calls ect. Although that was back when you
    werent allowed mobiles in hospitals, but they have changed that now, and
    you can have your mobile on now.

    Yes! Iam, they will give you one if you dont have one, but obviously
    it will be a hard, washed out towel that millions have used before you.
    Some people might not mind, and i wouldnt in an emergency, but as
    ive got time to plan and have things with me when the time comes
    id rather have my own lovely soft towel. x

    Aw they never mentioned anything like that on my antenatal tour :(

    Also dont suppose they have cam anyway?

    We are allowed off the ward into the corridor to use mobile, but obviously baby doesnt come off ward unless coming home, I was thinking of buying a cheap skype phone but not sure I have the money for that now, so will have to see! xx
