    Default What to pack in my hospital bag for a C-section?

    So what should I pack in my bag for a cesarean?
    Is there any clothes, pjs or underwear that is better to buy? Any tips would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Granny undies or any that sit above the wound. The same for pants and making sure they and your tops are loose fitting and easy access for BF

    Couldn't agree more undies that sit above your wound same with pants loose fitting clothes are far more easier for everything

    Thanks ladies. So high granny undies and trackies?

    Would getting a pair of flanny PJs in one size too big be good?

    Tights. I wore them a lot as you can lift them above the incision also dresses (but with coming to winter you might wear them).

    I bought yoga type pants with the high waist that you can roll, they were brilliant as you could have them right up over incision and belly or rolled down low more like regular trackies, whatever was more comfy at the time.

    I actually wore regular undies and popped a gauze pad over the incision and the undies held it in place.

    Socks - the compression tights the hospital provide get gross and your feet will swell up after the surgery, some socks to put over all that is useful.

    Tops you can easily feed in if you're planning on BF, I would wear singlet + loose and flowy over the top, you can pull down the signlet and lift up the top and then you don't feel so naked (unless you don't mind, some people don't!)

    I wore boyleg undies. They sat just under the incision. Found the Kmart brand ones in a bigger size were great.
    Leggings are so comfy or one size up in pj's.
    If any of your clothes are rubbing then put a pad over the incision.
    You are also on pretty strong painkillers at first so I suggest some comfort food. I always pack fruit, find it helps to ease the queasiness.
