    I've just posted this in Pregnancy Club but hoping for as many ideas/hints/tips as possible so will post here also!

    I'm planning on a home birth and thus far I've kept putting off packing my 'emergency hospital bag' thinking it'll take no time and I know what to put in and so on... now the time has come I'm going to pack and I'm lost!

    How much stuff are you packing?
    When I had my first I didn't use 2/3 of what I bought to the hospital and don't want to make the same mistake this time - plus the more stuff I pack the less stuff I have to hand at home (for exmaple my dressing gown or slippers or camera!)

    Are you still packing 2/3 babygrows or just the one?

    I've no idea! The list on 3rd Tri just seems much to much when (fingers crossed) I won't need any of it!

    HELP! What's in yours??
