    Eek just packed my hospital bag (well nearly packed) got a few bits to add still but essentials are in there now. Can I ask how many maternity pads and nursing pads do I need in there? Is a pack of each enough? I will do babys bag once iv washed all clothing etc. Feel I'm being proactive doing it now even tho I hope baby waits till 37 weeks + ideally but iv got two friends who had babys 6weeks early one who had 9weeks earlier one who had 8weeks early and my aunt had my cousin 3 weeks early so it's been on my mind now iv only got 7 weeks left!!

    I don't know how many is needed but I think I've packed 2 packs of maternity pads and a pack of nursing pads. Definitely easier to get it done now when you feel like it! I've put it off for weeks and I'm mostly done but not fully and I just can't be bothered sorting it out properly :(

    Well I found after my labour for two weeks after I had to change my maternity pad about 7 times a day the bleeding can be quite heavy and if you're a bit sore a fresh pad is great lol x

    I think I packed between 15 and 20 of each. My breast pads are individually sealed so I put them in a freezer bag as the box was so bulky.
