    Most important thing I had in my bag was lansinoh. That stuff saved me big time.

    These were great. Pharmacies sell ones that are made for haemorrhoids/post-birth so they are gentle and don't sting.

    Definitely recommend Ural as well. Take it before you think you need too. It takes a couple of hours to have full effect. The few times I forgot, I really regretted it and I didn't have bad tearing.

    Lansinoh and the hydrogel breast pads/discs were a big help in the early weeks breastfeeding. You can keep the hydrogel pads in the fridge - the coolness is extra soothing.

    Something I won't be packing this time or worrying about is the stress balls and iphone playlist! I never used either in my first labour.

    But one thing I will be packing is a night light - I found I needed some lighting for the night time feeds but the only options were the tv (which was too far away to do much) or turn on the fluoros and I didn't want bub to wake up fully for a feed (not to mention it was a bit bright for my eyes!).

    A copy of "Baby Love" by Robyn Barker. We had to look up medical emergencies like "hiccups" and "farting" in the early days when we weren't sure if baby was normal or suffering some terrible affliction. This book is great at pointing out what is normal - very reassuring!
