That's more like a suitcase worth lol x
small plastic jug im guessing is to fill with cool water and pour as your weeing to stop the stinging, esp if u have stitches! lol
One tip I've picked up on that's not mentioned here...
Remember to pack all-in-ones for baby that snap up at the side, not down the middle.
Apparently, poppers/zip/whathaveyou down the middle can irritate baby's belly button stump.
I noticed someone mentioned lip balm, my friend said her lips were really dry so that or vaseline is a good idea.
I don't have to worry about this for a long time but I was being nosy
best thing is warm water but yes its the right idea, i usued mined alot even when i came home as its like peeing fire x x x
My local hospital still provides milk but cut down to 2 options sma and cow and gate. No more aptamil. Nappies and maternity pads are available but women are advised to bring their own to cut down costs. Just to mention try a pair of diposible pants on first for the fit because in my opinion they are rubbish and to small.
Makeup You can also add makeup to the list if that's important to you for photo ops!!!.

This time round, I'd just be happy to have a bag with me! I had to have an emergency c-section last time and hubby had to bring random stuff in over the following days. Having survived with no bag, I have to say that I'll probably not be packing a suitcase full of stuff the next time round! Just the essentials - changes of underwear, hairbrush, toothbrush and then stuff for the baby.
Whatever you pack in your bag, my advice would be to pack it early! I had to go in at 36 weeks and was just in the process of sorting mine out.
oh god iv just read a thread which says you should start thinking of packing and having it ready anywhere between 28 weeks and 33 weeks just in case....errr i need to start mine next week then!! blimey so not ready for this baby anytime soon!!!! such a long list, how big a bag do you use and what type of bag even?! oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh!!!!!
I cannot agree with this any more! When I was in labour with my first I had a little gas and air and subsequently dribbled most of my juice despite my OH's best efforts Hadn't even thought about it till now, but I will be adding that to my hospital list!
As a second timer I'd say find a happy medium between preparing for every eventuality and traveling light. I didn't take too much with me last time. Nighties, change of clothes for leaving, pants, phone (for camera), money, toiletries, maternity pads etc. All the general essentials plus some paper to doodle and a pack of cards. I didn't feel I was missing anything at any point though and I didn't have a frantic OH riffling through a huge bag trying to find the one thing I needed right there and then!
If you are being induced, take paracetamol. I waited 2 hours for the nurse to bring me some form of pain relief and that was what I was given!
I was just searching for the list! Thankss!!
