    More comfy clothes! I had a cs, and hadn't brought enough loose waisted clothes. MIL had to go shopping for me!

    i overpacked and ended up with stuff that never came out of my bag!

    the stuff i bought was cs-friendly as a just in case measure, which was smart as i ended up with an emergency cs.

    i preferred supportive rather than loose stuff, high waisted leggings and knickers (i got a 6 pack from kmart in all black and they’re still good almost 2 years later!). i preferred the feeling of support rather than loose stuff but that’s entirely a personal preference.

    I’m writing up my list today so I can start buying things for it.

    My biggest regret previously... toilet paper. Buy the most plush, fancy toilet paper you can find and avoid the hospital onenif you can.

    More baby wipes. I completed underestimated the effort required to clean the first poop that comes out of a newborn

    Use what the hospital offers, like swaddles wipes etc, that way you don't have to do more washing when you get home. Ask for extra face washers to use for burp cloths. Snacks I was super hungry, I couldn't get enough food!
