I know a couple of the girls on the July thread have bought this set from Argos, it's in the sale for €15, bargain & I think it's fab! [img:2d0aavsn]http://www.argos.ie/wcsstore/argos/images/30-2862136A69UC444753X.jpg[/img:2d0aavsn]

suzy at my anti-natal class hey told us to seperate and have a labour bag... things in the labour bag are baby clothes and nappy (just one) toilitres - as you might get a shower before you get back to the ward towel - as above nighdress - to put on you in labour and a spare just in case knickers and pads camera the hospital dont want us brining in our big bag until were on the ward...

You don't get a shower till back on maternity ward. I have to support suzy in that my 'labour bag' consisted of plastic carrier bag containing a babygro, vest and nappy. I already had my stuff on (as in nightdress etc) and they put the first pad and pants (cortesy of hospital) on you after delivery. All other stuff (reserve nightie, pads, knickers aso) stayed on mat ward in my hospital bag of which I had only one. I had one medium sized bag alltogether.

So would you recommend going in to the hospital in your nightie, dressing gown and slippers? Or would that look a bit mad? :o0
