The Hospital Bag(s)

So naturally it starts with a list. I am using  modified version of the one I used last time.

For baby

  • 3 sleepsuits plus one for going home
  • 3 short-sleeved vests
  • 3 long-sleeved vests
  • hat
  • snowsuit
  • 3 muslins plus one giant muslin
  • 10 new baby nappies
  • nappy disposal bags
  • new born baby wipes
  • blanket
  • cotton wool pads
  • Bethanthen cream
  • 2 Aptamil baby formula (in case the breastfeeding doesn’t work out)

And then for my bag:

Inside this huge bag, are smaller bags to make it easier to find things.

In the flat spotty bag:

  • Notepad and pencil
  • Headphones
  • Phone charger
  • Charging unit
  • Purse (will be packed last minute)
  • Maternity notes (will be packed last minute)
  • Phone (will be packed last minute)

In the large spotty bag:

All my clothes for during the labour and afterwards including:

  • Nursing nightwear
  • Dressing gown
  • Slippers
  • Going home clothes
  • The nightie I wore when Evelina was born
  • Bed socks

In the red toiletry bag:

  • Shampoo / conditioner / shower cream
  • Moisturiser
  • Lip balm
  • Water spray
  • Hair brush / grips / bobble
  • Deodorant
  • Make-up (yeah right!)
  • Toothbrush and paste

And at the bottom of the bag is a pillow from home as the ones in hospital are not great especially with the waterproof covers.
