Nursing bra & hospital bag
Hi mummies and mummies to be. I’m going to give birth soon and am just wondering how many set of nursing bras do you guys normally prepare. I’ve 2 nursing bras at the moment and wonder if it’s sufficient. And what do you guys pack for your hospital bag. First time mum so am quite clueless.
I've never even brought a nursing bra for all my 4 births cos you'll be wearing nothing underneath you except for panties so easier to breastfeed your baby. I only brought a normal bra with me to go home with since milk hasn't come out yet which normally comes the next day onwards for me. I only wear a nursing bra at home when I've start to produce milk. Just bring along a breast pad if you've already start to leak. Items to bring : Set of clothes & undergarment to go home with for you and baby (booties, mittens, cap if needed and a swaddle) Cardigan/jacket as it may get cold. Toiletries, hp charger, your I/C & admission letter/form. Baby's carseat if your spouse is driving you home. Otherwise no need. Just carry baby and take a cab home (not grab or they'll reject you). I've also never brought a breastpump along with me cos I always like to go light and not troublesome cos I'll only be staying for a day or 2 (for vaginal birth). I directly latched my baby even w/o milk. Unless you hire a lactation nurse then maybe you'll need to bring or can rent from the hospital. Good luck!Read more
