    Having spent stupid amounts of time in hospitals... I'd advise you to get a dressing gown.. sometimes the wards can get quite cold in the winter. Especially if you are out of your bed walking around, and have a decrease in your blood.. which you have after giving birth or having an op..

    I'm planning on a 6 hour discharge so i won't be taking mine. If i have to stay in longer then i'll get dressed. If absolutely necessary dh can bring it in but when i stayed in 3 days last week i didn't use one.

    The hospital I am using encourages us to wear day clothes during the day and to be honest I work in the same hospital and have always found it to be too hot.

    I don't see there being any probs in getting a cheapie just in case you feel you need it. Anyway, there will be plenty of time to use it when you have to get up to your lo one those cold chilly nights. xxx
