Small enough clothes haha I only had 4x0 as my smallest but needed 6x0. I had all my family running around trying to find cute small girls clothes... Nearly impossible

Napisan and a bulk pack of washing powder - We used disposable nappies, but always had leakages occur in the first few months. And our babies spewed a lot, so there was lots of washing.
A Dummy - I was adamant my babies wouldn't use a dummy so I didn't buy one, but they were all very unsettled and we ended up having to go out and buy one to try. They never took to them, but it would have been great to have one handy at home to try at 2am when we were desperate!
A couple of pens and small notebook for my hospital bag (DH had to bring this in the first time) - I found this useful for recording feeds/wet nappies etc because the nurses kept asking "When was the last feed? How long for? Which side/s?" etc because I wouldn't have remembered otherwise!
Mini gel ice packs for knickers - I would probably hold off on buying these because you hopefully won't need them, but it was something that DH did have to go out and get because I had stitches and they helped a lot with the pain.
Food, particularly freezer meals - I was soooo hungry when I came home from hospital and BFing increased my appetite too. Neither of us felt like cooking much for dinner because we were so tired during the first few weeks, and I wish we had've stocked up our freezer a bit more.

Subbing. I'm 29 weeks and feeling a bit unprepared.
Also any suggestions for how many wonder suits, short sleeve onesies, singlets, etc are useful to have? I've been given heaps of stuff, which is great, but I'm unsure how cold my September baby is going to be and how many I'll go through each day. The smallest we've got is 0000 but we've also got plenty of 000. Bubba is currently average size.

I would add....
Hydrogel Breast Discs and lanoslin in your hospital bag. They got me through the first few weeks of breast-feeding.
Some 00000 and 0000/NB clothes. I didnt have small enough clothes for DD and her coming home outfit was huge!
Singlets, jumpsuits, onesies and socks are what DD lived in initially.

We had a lot of ladies coming in to work to buy the new flushable sanitary wipes so I grabbed some. Even though I had cs I found them great to feel fresh and clean.
Cat-I got 8-10 of everything and it was too much. But, I'm lucky to be able to do washing every day.

Maternity pads (seriously about 5-6 packs!) and breast pads, panadol for YOU, a good water bottle to keep by your side for feeding, a packet of cheap throw away undies...

Plus lansinoh or other nipple cream. A dummy too, even if you have no plans on using one because that could change in an instant lol (I cracked on day 5).

Some sort of medicine or naturopath remedy for constipation/ gas/ wind. God my dd struggled for the first two months with those issues. I tried brauer stomach calm, infants friend and infacol. Hopefully these may help if you have a windy bubs. Also agree with pp about ural and ice packs for your undies.. Heaven! Congrats! So exciting! X
