    yep got raincover, not got a parasol as he's due in October but thinking about it I'll pick one up just incase we get a sunny day (wishful thinking I know ;) )

    Using wet wipes for changing but will get cotton balls for cleaning, keep forgetting about changing bags as I don't normally use a handbag :lol: but will deffinately have to get one, got Sudocreme (sorry list above was off the top of my head so forgot a load of stuff that we have), got nipple cream when I was planning on trying breastfeeding but planning on soley expressing now so not worried about nursing bra's/tops, mattresses are with the Moses baskets & got lots of different types of blankets, sorry meant electric steriliser not steamer x

    Be aware that most hospitals won't let u use wet wipes for bum changes while in there so u will need to pack cotton wool x

    Apparently wipes are too harsh for babys skin and the first poos are easier to get off with cotton wool too apparently do dbl check with your hospital but most also say only bath with water no products for first few weeks. X

    I have reusable wipes as they contain no chemicals, you just use warm water and a little essential oil.
    Assume you have a cot for when baby outgrows Moses basket? Big babies could outgrow it quickly. :)
    Don't forget giant sanitary towels! ;-)

    Yep, baby wipes brought my little one out in a rash...switched to cotton wool and water and now prefer the latter.

    Bepanthen is brilliant for nappy rash - to use alongside sudocrem.
    Nappy sacks
    Mucky bag (plastic sealable bag?) for the changing bag (for soiled / sicky clothes!)

    Aside from that, you sound very prepared!

    yep still got Connor's cot bed (had just advertised it for sale when I found out I was pregnant so lucky timing :lol:) just got to get a new mattress & bedding but not going to worry about that too much until we know what size he is (praying he doesn't need to go into it before 6months or we're a bit buggered :lol:) though we've been told he's going to be small after scans/tests flagged up some slight concern about his growth. Oh yes pads, I remember how bad it was after having Connor, thought it would never stop so glad you reminded me. Hadn't thought of nappy bags & not even heard of Bepanthen so will have to hunt some of that out as Connor had awful nappy rash at one point. Oh mucky bag is a really good idea, otherwise I'd have (in all honesty) just ended up binning the mucky things when out :blush: thanks ladies x

    I prefer metanium to bepanthen much better for sever red skin/rash. I also bought infacol just incase as OH would be useless finding that. I haven't bought dummies as planning to breastfeed and dont want the temptation to use one, I am the same with formula have none of that for the same reason but have got bottles and steriliser ready as will express later on if breast feeding is successful. I bought a bath thermometer in the £1 shop.
