    So I am going to start packing hospital bag soon. How many pads should I bring? I have a whole huge pack of them. Also, for pajamas, when do you actually change into them, are they really needed, and if you are bringing them what kind? Also, how many breast pads, and are there any other NEEDED items that the hospital doesn't provide in the US? Thank you mummies, I appreciate it much!:thumbup:

    tucks are a brand of witch hazel pads used for hemmoroids but they give them post partum sometimes. The hospital I work at gives them standard to all moms post delivery. The OB pads they should give you too. Just makes sure you save a couple for the last day on the drive home!

    Breast pads=3-4 pairs
    Pads 4-6 (they will provide you with some HUGE ones which are actually GREAT because you can bleed a ton and they will give you cream/Tucks/etc to put in there which make your girls feel sooooo much better.....the bigger pads help hold it all in).
    PJ's I changed into them usually about 12 hrs later or after 1st shower.

    Looks like you can https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tucks-Hemo...RDNO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1306908520&sr=8-1

    Think I'm going to get some as I've seen them recommended a few times. I have packed one packet of mat pads (10 pads) but am not intending on staying in more than a few hours. You would need a couple of packs for a stay of a couple of days.
