    Don't forget your camera and baby book! I took chap stick too. My lips got dry and a little cracked after surgery. I don't know how it is there, but here they provide all diapers, wipes, pads, etc. I say provide, but they charge it to your insurance, but act like they bought it themselves. LOL Don't forget socks and house shoes too. Let me see what else.....spare snacks, just in case you can't stomach the menu. You'll need your strength! Hope this helps and good luck!

    I think you pretty much seem to have it all.
    Theres no way I will remember all that stuff when it comes to my turn- I'll probably end up making a mad dash out of sheer fright and not taking anything at all lol.
    You seem very prepeared. x
    Doesnt it scare you that you're getting your hospital bag ready? I mean its THAT close?

    A pillow - never enough in hospital and they're those horrid things with a plastic inner.

    And food girl! I took bananas and grapes and cereal bars so I could eat when I was feeding and when desparation set in at meal times. Hospital food is :sick:

    I had 2 bags jammed full of stuff and I used hardly anything of it in the end.

    For baby all I used was one vest and babygrow (although it makes sense to have a few extra ones with you), one bottle of baby bath stuff, 1 towel and a pack of newborn nappies. Didn't use anything else on her apart from cotton wool, which I did take with me but I just used the hospital's in the end. The Midwife didn't reccomend using talcs and other bath stuff on newborn skin when we bathed her so all that stuff I took was not needed.

    I was only in hospital for 2 days in total though (1 night) and she was breast fed so I didn't need to worry about any feeding stuff.

    I would recomend taking lots of maternity pads and my "must have" item would be baby wipes - not for baby but for you and for things like wiping down the loo before/after you use it stuff like that. I'm not an over the top hygiene freak or anything but, well for example I did get blood everywhere when I went for a wee for those first couple days... it was reassuring to have a lot of wipes handy! These are the only 2 things I felt I really needed apart from my clothes!

    Oh and a couple baby magazines were good to have when I was in bed recovering.
