Thanks Sherlee, Manduca looks good!! I like baby bjorn cos baby can face front in it and easy to remove without waking baby up. But Manduca being more lightweight and can carry baby up to about 20kg really tempting too! Will get hubby to make a choice between Manduca vs Baby bjorn.You have any idea roughly how much is the Manduca one if getting from the spree?
Autumnfall, i will be using a spacious hand carry luggage as a hospital bag. A bit kiasu hehe.
I'm bringing my own baby clothes instead of using the hospital's. My hospital will be giving baby diaper bag, baby clothes, swaddling blanket etc. Then my mum say they will definitely give extra diapers, baby wipes, milk powder etc and all these are chargeable so better bring home too. I think can get quite bulky.. So i bring big bag & chug all in one then hubby dont't need to carry too many things....
About hospital wear i believe hospital have... just that theirs not convenient for breast feeding. So they encourage us to bring our own nursing wear/ button-down PJ. My mum tell me its only 2-3 days, just wear theirs... i have not't decided though. I personally feel wear own PJ at hospital look weird.. Maybe bring one set and see how.
Alag, my hubby feels not necessary to spend money on a diaper bag too, and that i should just use any of my bigger handbags as one. But maybe i first-time mummy, then excited to use a brand new one for my baby. And the good thing about diaper bag is that they have LOTS of compartments. From what I see, some bags come with changing mat & thermos flask pouch too. I am a very blur & forgetful person, some more first time mummy, so I see a diaper bag as very crucial, can help me keep my baby stuff organized & within easy reach.
If you going to use a regular bag, can consider getting baby diaper bag organizer? I saw some online when searching for diaper bag.
And can you add me in the facebook group too? my email add is email@example.com. Many many thanks!!
