    Default Packing my bag

    I suppose I better get around to this! Can anyone direct me to a list of things I need to take?

    Oh soothers is a good one!

    Take your own nice toilet paper! 1 ply isn't nice in general especially just after you have given birth!

    The best thing that I took to hospital was a hand held fan for labour - it was awesome and gave me something to focus on and it cooled me down.
    Also, make sure you pack clothes that have easy access to your boobs if you're hoping to breastfeed.
    Good luck with it all!

    With the toilet paper thing, my savings grace was the flushable wet wipes. I read on the BH forum to buy some, wasn't going to, but they were on special so thought why not.

    OMG best thing ever! Esp after stitches!

    Own toilet paper and flushable wipes are a great suggestion! I might take sesome wipes and some aloe-vera tissues

    Little things I found useful...

    Lip balm.. Hospy air con dries out your lips so easily!

    High waisted knickers (take some even if you're planning a vaginal birth as you never know what can happen)

    Rite aid hydrogel breast disks and lansinoh nip cream if you are planning to bf. These are great for sore nipples.

    Spare hair ties and head band.

    Camera charger cord!

    ......

    Gotta run to bf the babe... I'll come back when I think of more. Lol
