Well, only 2 weeks to go and almost finished packing my hospital bag. I just don't know what would be suitable to wear? I have a few bits and pieces so I guess that's a start!

What clothes to pack in hospital bag?

If you are staying a few nights pack big comfy trackies and soft, stretchy tops to wear around the hospital (as well as your pj's). Stretchy/baggy tops are great too for breastfeeding as after you have bubba, it's all about the feeding.

I wore those Bonds feeding singlet tops with comfy pants. Pj pants worked well too. I also took a maternity nightie which I slept in which was good if u had any 'leaks' from heavy blood loss that it didn't ruin your pants
Edit: pack a dressing gown hospitals get cold when ur up feeding at night

Big baggy track pants or pj pants
For breast feeding a took a few cheap singlets then wore a baggy lose top over them so when I was feeding it covered my gross stomach cause I would pull top up and singlet down (if that makes sense)
Comfy jumpers/ jackets hospitals get cold
Plenty of underwear what you think you need time by 2 just incase

I remember my sister asking Mum and I to go buy her some more Bonds maternity singlets when she was in hospital. Do you think we could find the DD cup ones...it was like mission impossible. Anyway, going from that, its a good idea to have some of those!
I'd pack uggies too and lots of socks for cold hospital floors.

I liked having tights with baggy tops and singlets.
Socks! My feet would get so cold.
If you can a pair of favourite jeans. I felt a million times better when I put mine on.
A nice comfy jumper or jacket, don't underestimate how chilly it can get in hospital.

See I was at a birth centre and I was boiling hot!! DS was a feb baby so I wanted to crank the aircon but he was on the cool side so we had to keep turning it down to make it warmer!!
I'm a bit of a nudist so I wore a crop top (most of the time, unless I'd taken it off ) and short shorts. When people came in (we only had 1 set of visitors) I just put a low cut maternity top on so I could still feed. Then I wore a nice but comfy dress home.
Depending on the time of year I would take less next time. Breast feeding singlet, shorts/tights and dress to wear home. Add a few pairs of knickers and done!! But I only stayed overnight last time and will plan on staying only 6 hours next time if all is well.

Big, cheap granny undies that you don't mind throwing out (at least a few pairs for the first 24 hours).
We were boiling in our room (hospital was kept really warm for the babies) so I mostly wore yoga pants and baggy t-shirts.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I know a couple of people have told me to get maternity singlets so might have to invest in a couple of those as well. And I've been told wear baggy tops cause your belly goes all yucky lol.
Will my non-maternity tops fit straight away?
