Finally getting my bits and pieces sorted for D day and there are a few things I'm confused about: On the list I got from the hospital about what essentials to bring in, they list a box of tissues? Anyone know what these are needed for? Any idea of roughly how many nappies are needed while you're in? There is no mention of breast pads, they're needed aren't they? Do you need any muslin cloths or bibs for the hospital? Thanks in advance :wv :wv

Tissues, are just for your own personal use, you know, hormones are all over the place after a baby, and the tears real do flow! Hospital tissues are horrible and hard. Nappies, best to bring a full packet of size 1 Def need bibs. You will use one for each bottle, around 6 bottles per day, so lots of bibs. Unless you are BF, then I dont know what you would need for that.
