    Thought i'd start getting organised now, so ive made a start on packing everything I need for the hospital. Im planning on having two bags, a small wheely suitcase for mine, oh's and some of babys bits, and then the babys changing bag with wipes, nappy bags etc in, along with blanket, and clothes, basically anything he's gunna need right away. What is everyone else doing bag wise?

    In my changing bag fo bubbs, ive put in:

    • 2 newborn vests and sleepsuits
    • 1 x 0-3 month vest and sleepsuit incase he's big
    • 1 x blanket
    • 1 pack of wipes
    • nappy bags
    • hat, 2 pairs socks, 3 pairs scratch mittens
    • a bib
    • cotton wool

    Like I said, everything in this bag is everything im planning on him needed straight away so I can have it all to hand.


    Then in the main suitcase along with our stuff, im gunna put in for him

    • 2 more vests and sleepsuits
    • 2 more 0-3 month vests and sleepsuits
    • pack of 27 size 1 nappies
    • going home outfit
    • snow suit
    • pack of bibs

    This is all stuff that he's gunna need but maybe not straight away.

    What is everyone else doing? xx

    For baby I have:

    * 4 Vests- 1 Tiny Baby, 2 Newborn, 1 0-3
    * 4 Sleepsuits- 1 Tiny Baby, 2 Newborn, 1 0-3
    * 1 Blanket
    * Nappies- 10 Size 1.
    * Wipes- 1 Travel Pack
    * Cotton Wool- half one of those rectangle shaped pleat things
    * Nappy Sacks- about 12
    * 2 Hats- 1 Newborn, 1 0-3
    * 2 Muslin squares
    * 1 Pair scratch mitts


    I am going to add another pair of scratch mitts, a jumper just incase it's cold although don't imagine it will be in hospital, and another sleepsuit and vest in Newborn, another blanket and more nappies (they were the suggestions made to me when I posted elsewhere what I'd already packed)

    I am hoping to only be in one night, or for just a few hours if I give birth in the morning xx

    I started a thread about this myself a while ago. From what I can gather it's just personal choice and I found pretty much I got a 50/50 split in my replies. I'm taking cotton wool as well just in case. xx

    Certain baby wipes have alcohol in them and my friend who's just had a baby said to get the ones without the alcohol in them as they don't irritate the skin as much as the ones with alcohol in them
