I am trying to pack my hospital bag and was wondering what I needed to pack for the baby?

I am just going to pack for a short stay because OH can bring in extras if needed. I have put in 3 all in one baby grow things with legs and arms and was just wondering what to pack for wearing underneath it. I am due in January so didn't know whether I would need long sleeve vest things or short sleeves and how many?

Also, for going home I was just going to use a baby grow thing rather than an outfit but what on top? We have a snowsuit thing that my mum bought but it looks HUGE. We have a little jacket so would that be ok over the top then just a blanket over her legs?

We only live about 5-10min drive from the hospital so its not like we have far to go....

My bag so far is huge- hospital wil think I am staying for a month :shock:
 
I just packed nappies, wipes, a couple of vests and a couple of babygrows. I would have thought vest + babygrow would be enough but if you're worried take a blanket and maybe a little cardi/coat? Also you can get those velvety babygrows, that may be better than a standard cotton one..?

take 3 vests 3 babygrows, bibs, nappys, hats, 1 blanket and a cardigan thats pleanty..
 
None of our snow suits fit - even the newborn ones - so you might be better off with layers and blankets.

I packed loads too, but really didnt need an awful lot and we were in for 5 days...

The hospital supplied nappies, formula etc and she wore short sleeved vests under baby gros.

We had a little white velour baby gro with matching snow suit and hat to come home in, plus a big white hand knitted shawl from a friend, she was so wrapped up she looked like she was going to the North Pole!!! :rotfl:

Handy hint on the car seat...dont take it in the hospital with you, the midwife carries the baby to the car when you go home and then checks to see you have fastened baby in securely before you leave. If you take car seat in, you will end u carrying it out empty and will have arms full of bags and gifts etc....leave it in car all ready or baby to be put into.
