I feel so shit right now.
DC admitted to hospital for the 2nd time this week. Just popped home and left her with a nurse to go grab some supplies/ medicationand I forgot her nappies angryangryangry
I'm so mad at myself. I wrote it down.
DC is going to have some strong laxatives with only one nappy as back up, handheld for the clean up

Hand hold for the clean up**

Don't worry the hospital keep nappies, they will give you some.

Drogosnextwife Sun 11-Aug-19 21:38:12

Well they should anyway.

Could you ask the nurses if they’ve got any you could use? Or is there a chemist at the hospital?
Don’t beat yourself up, sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate.

Any late night supermarkets nearby?

Anyone who can drop you some?

Anyone at home who can bung some on a local cab for you?

Any spares on the ward?

I once went to A&E with nothing (sent straight from GP surgery and he was in PJs. Only expected to be out for the length of the appointment and of course in my panic of being told to go to A&E I didn't think to nip home first. We weren't blue lighted but the GP did give me a tenner for cab fare as of course I hadn't bought any cash with me. Thankfully my less panicked DP bought all we needed a few hours later!!

Ward will have some, don’t panic. Hope she’s home and well v soon.

tyerd Sun 11-Aug-19 21:51:34

When she was admitted before they only had newborn nappies (up to a siz2) she's a size 5
There are a few things like Sainsbury's local open but I don't want to leave her again.

Thank you for the well wishes.

Given the fact DC is going to have a laxative (and the main thing you'll need but forgot is clean nappies shock) then you need to go to Sainsburys.

Is there anyone else on the ward with a similar sized baby? We are regulars and a few times I have offered nappies etc to people who arrive with nothing. Once you get a supply delivered you can return them.

I think people are confused because the obvious thing to do is pop back out and get some nappies? Not a big deal, shes obviously going to be supervised and looked after in the hospital.

Troels Wed 14-Aug-19 16:44:41

Is it a general hosppital? worst comes to worst, they can go and get a few small adult wraps or pads from an adult ward, they'll wrap around her twice practically poor kid.

By someone she doesn't know? When I've never been without her? When she's poorly and crying for her mum? It's not that difficult.
And no, I couldn't pop out and get some, I'd have to go all the way home. It was Sunday.

@WellLetsSayHesSquare
@Troels

Thank you for the suggestions. She has some now. We're still in hospital.

Given the fact DC is going to have a laxative (and the main thing you'll need --*but forgot-- is clean nappies* *) then you need to go to Sainsburys.*

Why are you so shocked thaf I forgot nappies?

Nesssie Thu 15-Aug-19 13:40:17

But what was the other option? Let your daughter shit herself everywhere?

No its not ideal, but you left her once to go home, you can leave her again.

Anyway, I'm glad its been sorted and I hope she recovers soon.

Whenever DD was admitted as a baby, the hospital always had nappies (and, in fact, preferred to use theirs if they were weighing them to monitor urine output). If your DD is on a children’s ward, I’d be really surprised if they didn’t have some in larger sizes than newborn.

tyerd Thu 15-Aug-19 14:39:28

But what was the other option? Let your daughter shit herself everywhere?

No. Use the few nappies we had and pop to the shop when it opens. There were no nurses that could sit with her for an hour again. They have other patients.

tyerd Thu 15-Aug-19 14:40:55

@SomethingNastyInTheBallPool They don't have any left in that size. She is getting very strong laxatives. Changing nappies every 15 mins.
Name change fail Oh well.

flamingjune123 Thu 15-Aug-19 15:20:26

Dear OP, the staff will have no choice but to look after your DD if you need to go out again. It doesn't matter how many patients they have, your DD is one of them and nurses really can't rely on parents doing 24 hour a day care. I speak from being in hospitals for 18 years with my own DD so please know this comes from a place of understanding. Many parents are not able to stay 24 hours a day and some are not even able to visit every day ( eg a single parent with a younger baby) I wish you well and you may find that a break this evening to pop out will give you a breather

@flamingjune123
Thank you.
I was allowed to take her off the machine for a while and took her with me to the shop to get some nappies.
They already have small babies with no parents, they are in cots, we are in a bed which may be influencing their decision.
