    i was feeling like i needed to do something this weekend so i thought i'll start packing my hospital bag and sorting out what i actually need so in my bag atm i have got

    2 nighties
    my slippers
    my new dressing gown
    maternity pads
    and my toiletries bag (with all travel size shower gel and toothpaste ect)
    hair bobbles and hair brush
    towel
    nipple pads
    nipple cream
    bottles
    pre- made milk
    clothes to come home in

    and in harrys bag

    3 babygrows
    3 vests
    smallish pack of nappies (27 approx)
    2 pairs of socks
    booties
    2 hats
    cotton wool
    wipes
    baby lotion
    blanket
    burp cloths
    muslins
    harry's teddy
    his winnie the pooh coat to come home in
    4 bibs
    2 stratch mittens

    i'm debating whether to take my own towels and stuff as SIL said they provide you with towels at the hospital for you and baby, did wanna buy the cow and gate starter kit in case i cant BF but then if i can then it's wasting £15 that i'm never going to use

    I have bottles, steriliser and ready made milk although I'm planning in bf. I wanted it there just in case ether of us get stressed bf and he is hungry an I can't feed him or some reason. Would rather buy it and never need it than not have it when I do! U can always sell it on xx

    that is very true i thinkif i dont use it asda can give me my money back, but i dont want to just give him a bottle straight away because my SIL did that and olivia wouldnt breast feed because she was used to a bottle.

    I've got a few bits and bobs for baby, nail clippers, nappies, bottles and a few cartons of milk just in case, some nipple cream, breast pads, maternity pads. Also transferred my make-up from a giant bag to a small grab back. Very important.

    My biggest challenge is having clothes clean for me as there's only a few things that fit. But I think if I go into labour naturally I'll just wash some while I'm waiting to go to the hospital, don't wanna go til the last minute. Worst case scenario I have to wear a hospital gown so I'm not too worried.

    Funny you should mention that Cow & gate starter pack. We saw that in mothercare today and picked it up as thought it was a fab idea for hospital and just incase can't breastfeed. Your list looks pretty good to me.

    Don't forget some munchies and maybe ipod or something? x

    ive got 2 sets of pj's, one with pants and a nightie. a black towel, an extra blanket for baby, breast pads n nipple cream, underwear, leggings and a top to leave in and toothpaste, toothbrus, brush, bobbles, toiletries. gonna buy some milk closer to the time and sterilise the bottle when in waiting to go in as they only stay sterile for 24hrs.
