I was trying to pack bottles in case I need to pump so I sterilised a couple. Then I realised they remained wet after that! Should I dry them? But if I dry them with towel or air dry in the open, they won't be sterilised anymore right?? Or can we express milk into wet bottles? Anyone knows?

I didnt even think of that mei2009.. I compiled a list for hospital bag from various sources in this forum but bottles weren't mentioned.. Some exp mummy can tell if it's needed to be packed?
Engravedx- did you pack?
mei2009- i'm using pigeon sterilizer. The manual says to use clean water, which i presume to be boiled water. But i use distilled water anyway. Shld be ok. Just not tap water.. Cos alot of impurities.
Oojo- i did pack but didnt use. But first few days is only colostrum, and really little. I'm not sure if able to pump out. But just bring cos even if baby doesnt latch on, you can immediately use the pump to stimulate milk flow. Anw i read somewhere that you can even start pumping before you give birth to stimulate the breasts..
Yea, not sure baby will latch on or not, so i just pack the pump as well.if including the pump set, then it's more than a bag to bring to hospital.lol.but dont know I will be too tired to do any pumping there.
dont know y recently my swollen feet feel super itchy. Worried worried, not sure is this any symptoms for anything bad??
Omg mummies, dont overpack! I practically didnt use anything that i brought to the hospital!!
Petpet- i had rashes over my whole feet but it stopped after i gave birth. If itchy, can put moisturizer or calamine lotion
Engraved- ok, I will try apply some moisturiser. Hope it's not some illness or what.lol.thanks!
Oh yes.. Pls share what to pack coz diff ppl/forum said diff things.. dont want to overpack.. But at e same time scare dat i ll miss out certain things.. sigh.. Anybody already ve e 'nesting' symptoms? i tink im having it but like i want to do so many things.. But dont know where to start.. sigh.. Though i tink i ve done most of e things.. But stil feels incomplete.. :/..
I'm not going for the full works for traditional confinement. I ordered confinement tingkat for lunch. Mum-in-law says she will cook sthg for breakfast and dinner. I also want other food like pasta and bah chor mee......! And yes, I'm going to shower and wash my hair!
I'm only bringing a set of pyjamas with front button opening, a jacket, a pair if socks, a set of clothes to change for going hm, some extra long pad, marriage cert, admission letter, all receipts so far to claim for medisave..dont't even need to bring anything for baby coz my friend who delivered at Thomson Medical Center told me hospital will provide everything baby nds, when you discharge they will also wrap your baby up nicely n you can just go hm like that..

Things to bring:
Antenatal booklet (the booklet you bring for every checkup) or whatever hospital form
Hairband, rubberband to tie your hair (My hair gets easily oily and it's damn gross to have oily hair in your face!)
Toothbrush, toothpaste, facial wash
Front opening clothes for easier breastfeeding
socks to keep your feet warm (i didn't bring)
jacket (i didn't bring)
Maternity pads (or the extra long pads for substitute. the blood flows like crazy for the first few days so this is very important!)
Disposable paper/cotton panties (just throw away after use, convenient!)
Shampoo & Soap (if you are intending to bathe. i did not bathe in the hospital)
1 set of baby clothes
(All depending if your hospital provides for baby or not)
For clothes, I wore back whatever that I wore to hospital on the day of delivery cos I changed before I went to hospital. Upon reaching hospital, they took my clothes and I was changed into the gown already. So my clothes can re-wear. Lol.
Most of the things I listed are based on what you need personally. AND there are ALOT of items which the hospital will provide you, so it's best to check with the hospital so that you dont't bring too many things! For mine, Kandang Kerbau Hospital provided me with disposable paper panties and pads. I didn't bring socks and jacket, just cover myself with blanket and it's warm enough for me (i was in aircon ward). I didn't bring front opening clothes cos Kandang Kerbau Hospital provides hospital gowns. And I wear my slippers there. Lol... So for myself, I practically didn't have to bring anything at all . dont't forget to bring your cameras ahhhh! Take pictures of baby! ^^
