    Got cartons of apple juice, for labour and after.

    Getting milky ways for labour as I think they'll be easier to shove in my mouth and swallow between gas and air! Last time I had trackers which I really wanted to eat but ended up having to spit it out so I could take gas and air.

    Got trackers for after birth too. :)

    Cereal bars, sweets, biscuits and umbongos. Then in car I've left 6 energy drinks and a multi bag or crisps. I know I won't remember them in fridge and hospital say they have ice there :)

    Cereal bars, nuts, bananas, rice cakes, chocolate (mainly for OH), isotonic drinks are better than lucozade.

    I'd freeze a few small bottles of water!

    Cereal bars were my saviour, I couldn't eat during but afterwards I had a cuppa and 3 of them - they were the nicest things I ever ate :lol:

    Stock up for OH as well, he'll get hungry!

    I've got cereal bars, couple of packets of biscuits and cartons of juice with straws for easy sipping during labour! There's a tesco just around the corner from the hospital I'm going to so if that's not enough I can send OH or my mum out to get more supplies! Xxx

    I took loads, lucozade (& energy tablets), biscuits, chocolate bars, crisp, cereal bars ect. But I didn't actually eat anything during labour & mine was 24 hours. I did drink lucozade so definitely take that, but food wise just take whatever you'd want to eat afterwards... I ate 3 slices of toast, & 4 cereal bars, and a whole pack of biscuits when I had finished haha!

    And as Carnat said whatever you eat after delivery is the best thing you will ever eat haha, the 3 slices of cold toast were bloody amazing!

    At antenatal class they said to go easy on the energy drinks as too much caffeine isn't a great idea, even in labour. Just saying. She said water is the best thing really. Xx

    And to contrast that advice, my maternity notes says to bring 4 bottles of energy or isotonic drinks.

    I hate energy drinks though. I drank water last time. My first contraction was at 2am. I had breakfast and lunch. Then went to hospital at 4 and didn't really eat anything mostly cos by the time I was starving the contractions were too close together to eat. Gave birth at midnight and probably had tea and toast at 4am...i was starving. Then ate cereal bars and biscuits until breakfast arrived!

    I don't pack any snacks for myself, just my hubby. When I'm in labor I am nauseous and have zero appetite. I can barely handle ice chips (which the hospital has). So anything in my bag is a snack for my man.

    Ha! Typical! I guess it depends on the midwife/area you live! I hate energy drinks anyway. Bleurgh
