I'm a first time Mum and just getting my hospital bag together. Got all my stuff sorted, but just need to decide what to take for baby. I have a variety of newborn sizes, but am wondering if I should just get a pack of eco friendly disposables for when we're in the hospital.
Had midwife appointment today and she said that I'm as healthy as can be (not sure how with all the rubbish I'm eating) and that he's bang in the middle measurements wise, so I'm hoping that all will go well and I'll not be in long, but I'm a natural worrier.
I guess I just have no idea what happens in hospital. Will I be the one doing all the nappy changes? When will I do a first nappy change? After the birth do they put baby in a nappy and if so, won't they just use whatever nappies they tend to use?
I keep hearing that the first poos are meconium and therefore black/tricky to get clean. Would it be better to use disposables as a result of this? I'm planning on BF-ing and I understand BF poo more and need changing a lot more frequently?
I don't want to get myself stressed about it all and I'm just worried that I have lots of different types of nappies in my stash, but won't know which ones work best for him till he is born and would prefer to experiment in my own home (I've never changed a nappy in my life
The other thing is that people have mentioned on a previous thread of mine about using terrys and those nippa fastenings as they can be suited to any sized baby. I could do all the folding before we go and get them ready in his hospital bag. What have other people done? Sorry for all the questions!
