    Default Hospital bag

    Hi girls,

    Well I am 34 weeks tomorrow and I haven't yet packed my hospital bag.

    I was wondering what to pack? does anyone have a list?

    I have tried to find one on this site, but no luck.

    Okay well I have my list of things I am taking...a lot depends on your hospital and what they provide.

    Toiletries
    Toothbrush
    Toothpaste
    Shampoo
    Hairbrush
    Hairties
    Moisturiser
    Body refresher wipes
    Blistex (lips can get really dry)
    Nursing pads
    Maternity pads (2-3 packs)
    Face washer
    Soap
    Powder
    Rescue Remedy

    Clothes
    3 tops suitable for feeding (I bought bonds singlets)
    1-2 maternity bras
    lots of underwear (old stuff, or you can buy disposable underwear)
    3-4 pair of trackpants (I've gone yoga type pants that I can sleep in but looked dressed for visitors)
    socks (I get cold tooties)
    slip on shoes (feet may swell after labour)

    Labour (this is where it becomes really personal...and dependant on your hospital...but for me)
    i-Pod with funky upbeat music
    camera and recharger
    lollies
    mobile phone
    magazine/books

    other stuff mentioned to me by hospital were essential oils, cd's, drinks, food for support group, birth plan, sarong/nightie if you wish,

    For baby (Bubs will be wearing hospital clothing and nappies for duration of stay)
    jumpsuit
    jacket/hat/booties
    nappies
    blanket
    dummy

    Miscellaneous
    money for phone
    paper and pen
    my own pillow (a must for me)
    bag for washing
    purse-license, medicare card
    hospital papers
    gift for my daughter (a t-shirt that says 'Big Sister' on it)

    I'd love to hear what others are taking. I know that sounds like heaps but it all fits in one bag.

    Getin,

    was reading your list and saw "Ipod with funky upbeat music". I just spent the last two weeks cramming my Ipod full of jazz and ballads! Lol!

    love

    I'm too scared to pack any delicate equipment for fear I may end up throwing it across the room. HA!
