    Default Labour bag/hospy bag/baby bag???

    So I am trying to organise my bags for the hospy - I am having bub in town a couple of hours from home so I will have to have a big bag of stuff that I take to families for a good 3wk period kinda thing.

    In addition, Im trying to work out what I need for hospy??

    I was thinking
    -small labour bag (snacks for labour, magazines, ipod, birth clothes and stuff that I need for the actual labour)
    -hospy bag (enough for 2 - 4 days) with changes of clothes and stuff
    -ongoing snack/entertainment bag for after labour while im in hospy
    -baby bag

    is that right? and what do I put in each??

    what did u do??

    Sounds good.
    snacks for after labour are a good idea, I was really hungry and wouldn't have survived without my sneaky snack pack of mini chocolate bars!
    Face wipes or face washers to freshen up.
    a few different sizes of baby clothes and some wraps.
    I stressed so much about what to take!
    Enough comfy clothes / pj's, extra undies, snacks, face wipes, baby clothes, singlets, nappies, baby wipes were really all I needed.
    good luck!!

    Default Labour bag/hospy bag/baby bag???

    This is what I took with me when I gave birth to DS:
    -Big nana undies x 5 that goes up to waist just in case they perform c/s, you would bleed quite a but and will probably stain your undies
    -DHs big tshirt for labour time, nothin too long cause you'll have to pull it up all the time etc.
    -comfortable clothes that opens at front for breastfeeding
    -comfortable bra and breast pads, your nipples becomes sensitive when bubs sucks on it
    -flip flops
    -hair dryer and/or straightener ( I didn't use mine)
    -snack for me and DH
    -diary to record how I was going
    -camera, camera recorder
    -coins for parking or vending machines
    -baby clothes
    Hospital provides everythig for the baby, nappies, wipes, clothing, bath stuff, swaddle etc, but you need to provide your own when you leave or if you want can use your own in hospital.
    I will bring the same this time round maybe plus a laptop with movies for the sleepless nights, I was so tired but couldn't sleep at all!
    Good luck!
