    Did you buy one especially? If so, where from? hehe.

    Even though I'm planning a home birth, I'm thinking I need a hospital bag. My current overnight bag is falling apart so a replacement overnight bag is justified anyway but I don't know how big a one to get or where I can get a nice one as I got my current one from Primark when I needed it and it's lasted me a year or so but the handles are falling off!

    Any ideas?

    I've seen a Hello Kitty one which is like £45 and my husband would never let me spend that much but it has wheels so maybe I can pull that line, hehe, although he'd probably just offer to carry it instead, grrr.

    I've borrowed one from my parents.

    And babies bag is the changing bag - it's amazing how big it is! Anything that doesn't fit in there fits in mine.

    Yeah I was thinking of using the bowling bag for me, and the changing bag for baby. But then the requirements for what you need for homebirth are different so I was thinking of putting the nappies and stuff in the changing bag and the clothes for the homebirth in the airing cupboard, and then having a "if baby goes to hospital" bag (the bowling bag) and then "if I go to hospital" bag, lol.

    I just take a duffel bag for both me and baby. It's a small one, but fits enough diapers and clothes etc. It'd be too much of a pain in the but to bring 2 bags!
