  • Toiletries and comfy clothes for mum and bub.


  • I found that apart from the stuff I packed for bubs & my toiletries/clothes, I didn’t use anything that i packed in my hospital bag, lol. Pack the things you use the most or that give you comfort :)


  • Comfortable clothing, plenty of underware, smart phone and charger, magazines, and toiletries without perfume, maternity pads, ear plugs, eye mask, snacks.


  • nice nighties toothbrush/paste,deodorant,light fragrance
    washer and face cream,wet ones and lippie in your case
    Hair brush and book.If you forget leave a list so some one can bring post haste
    all the best, enjoy your baby smelling nice and full of grace fb time do not waste


  • Nice shower gel


  • Black undies. Baggy pants, maternity pads, couple of jumpsuites size 0000 and 000 depending on baby size.magazinw, phone charger. Good luck


  • Lots of massive really thick pads!!


  • In SA when we have pur hospital visits & appointments they give us a bounty bag. This bag contains useful info including a list of what to pack in yours & your baby’s bag. Just do not forget nappies or wipes you will definitely need these. Also a suit for bubs & maybe a beanie, the ones they put on our baby when it was born was terrible. Don’t forget a magazine, deodorant & cash for yourself


  • nappies, baby clothes, pads and breast pads


  • I think the most important things are Pads, disposable undies, a comfy nightdress, nursing bras, nursing pads, magazines or a book, nipple cream and a change of clothes to go home in. thats really about all you will need i think.


  • Disposable underwear! Because the last thing you want to think about it washing underwear!


  • Take everything that other people have suggested, and also take a tube of really nice hand cream, because believe me, you’ll really appreciate it. And a pair of industrial strength ear-plugs, because you will use them for even a couple of hours at a time when you need a good nap. And take a photo of your hubby, so you can swear at it when he’s not there & things get on top of you. I hope it all goes well for you.


  • clothes (comfortable high waisted undewear, loose fitting pants, tops and jumper, pjs) slippers, toiletries for you (soap, face washer, toothbrush, toothpaste, make up, deodorant, pads etc) clothes, socks, blankets, nappies, wipes, bottle, dummy etc for bubs, a camera, your phone and charger, magazines/book, cash for tv in your room and cafe at hospital
