    Don't worry too much, take clothes for yourself and some for bub, you can always get your partner to get extra clothes from home for bub and anything else you might forget- especially if the ones you pack are too big/small. Did your hospital give you a list of what to take?

    My midwife suggested 3 bags. 1 for Baby, 1 for labour & 1 for me. In the labour bag she said to put in clothes that you want bub to be dressed in after giving birth and said to put in a few t-shirts/clothes for you during labour. This is in case you are in labour for a long time and get sweaty etc....

    I had a labour bag and a hospital bag. My labour bag was full of snacks, heat pack, tennis ball for massage, CDs, book, drinks, t-shirt - the only thing that I used was the heat pack and 2 CDs and t-shirt (but only for a very brief moment).

    My hospital bag had my stuff and babies stuff. Our hospital only supplied nappies so we had to supply the rest. Also had pads, breast pads, toilet paper, pjs, lots of nickers, clothes and basic toiletries.

    I took two bags. One was for labour and one was for the stay. Definately put something for baby to wear after they are born in your labour bag - also serves as a good focus tool during labour At my hospital they asked for a nappy, singlet, outfit, beanie and bunnyrug for as soon as they were born. Incidently, when I LEFT hospital, I had about a zillion bags! There was all the extra stuff I made DH bring in for me (laptop to watch DVD's when bub was sleeping and so I could journal, magazine, books, my knitting... and then there was all DD's pressies!)
