I'm a first time mum and I'm only 28 weeks gone but I like to be organised and least know what I need to buy! Any suggestions, I am planning on bottle feeding however this may change as I haven't made up my mind to what I feel is more comfortable for me, any suggestions ?smile

Random tip: try not to pack everything in black. My nightie, dressing gown, going home clothes, vest tops, knickers, bras etc were all pretty much black. The midwife asked my husband to get my nightie out, and out came everything as he tried (and failed) to tell the difference between black jeans, socks, tops etc and a night dress. A pink nightie wld have been far easier and faster!!! And the whole room wldnt have had to see the entire contents of my hospital bag! Just a thought! Good luck.
