Getting Ready…Hospital Bag

16 02 2014

Baby bagMum is coming over this week while I am on half term and one of the things on my to-do list is sorting out my hospital bag. I have been buying bits and pieces for some time so have a few of the necessities already but a few online searches and a quick consultation of my blue folder suggest that I need the following items.

  • Antenatal notes and birth plan – birth plan = being struck on the head with a toaster and waking up after its all over
  • Parking money
  • Basic toiletry kit – toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, face wipes, lip salve and moisturiser
  • Dressing gown and slippers
  • Front opening nightdress – Mum is buying this for me 🙂
  • Disposable knickers – I don’t want to know!!!!
  • Maternity and breast pads
  • Nursing bras
  • Towel and pillow
  • Energy drinks and snacks
  • Magazine/book
  • Going home outfit

Baby Stuff:

  • Nappies
  • Cotton wool
  • Vests/babygrows
  • Socks and scratch mitts,
  • Thin cotton hat
  • Muslins (buy coloured or patterned ones so that yours are easy to distinguish)
  • Going home outfit
  • Blankets
  • Car seat

So plenty to do – thank goodness for Mummies.
