PJ's and nightie
Disposable Briefs (fantastic for after a csection)
Arnicare cream for any bruising
Snacks- cereal bars/sweets/biscuits
Mix of sleepsuits in different sizes; one for a smaller baby, the rest up to 3 months, *TIP* take a footless suit incase you have a long baby.
3 knitted cardigans
Water Wipes ( it's not easy fetching water for cotton wool after a section)
Around 12 Nappies
A dummy (just incase)
I'm using a holdall with wheels to make it easier when leaving post op. I'm bound to have forgotten something but I'm sure I have the essentials. If not I always have Andy to fetch things for me.
Did you overpack your hospital bag? What packed items did you find useful/pointless when it came to using them?
