    :thumbup: since i need to do my own hosp bag yet, I've done babies, i'm gonna need some advice where to get my minis from for cheap, 50p is quite excessive for a tiny bottle of shampoo! Do home bargains/pound stretcher etc sell all this stuff? also which pads would you recommend? i didn't need em with my son as i had a catheter in and all my major bleeding went onto a large pad that was on the bed, so didn't have to worry.x

    Poundland sell empty mini bottles you get 4 and a lotion dispenser in a clear washbag for a £1 so i have bought a pack and am just going to fill them myself saving loads of money.

    I'm packing a free sachet from a magazine I had for shampoo, and full size deodorant etc. U could be home in a matter of hours or ur other half could bring u some the following day. I didn't use half the stuff I packed for DD.

    I used some of my boots points on some bits to treat myself after the birth, also used them to get the maternity pads, I love boots points!

    Also I had a dig around and found some lotions I got for Christmas and found a lovely nivea body lotion I'd chucked in a drawer! It's amazing what you can find in your own house! :lol:

    This thread has reminded me that I really should get packing... eek!

    I was planning on buying all the mini bottles until my husband came home from a business trip with loads of really nice mini bottles of shampoos, conditioners, body lotion etc that he got from the hotels he was staying in! So I am well equipped!

    There is a Nivea set in Superdrug for £5.99 or but I don't think it has bath stuff in it, all in a little travel bag and I had a email from The Body Shop saying there is a instore sale on maybe you could pick up a miniture bath soak there?

    I've been quite lucky as little sister used her staff discount for mini bits for bag and have some Lush freebies as well...
