    re: Things to bring for hospital stay & delivery - WHAT TO PACK LIST

    Personally, I feel that the following will be sufficient:

    - maternity/nursing bras
    - breast Pads
    - disposable panties or daily wear panties (of larger size or maternity one)
    - open button dressing gown (easier for breastfeeding)
    - going home clothes
    - sweater
    - sock
    - sanitary pads
    - comfortable shoes
    - comb,hairband
    - nursing Pillow (if you have, otherwise use hospital pillows will do)
    - towel (if you want to wipe your body)


    Others:
    - camera
    - documents to claim for Medisave


    Notes:
    1) Remember to ask your mum/inlaw to prepare the red dates tea for you.
    Cos once delivery, try not to drink too much plain water.

    2) Some of the website will suggest toiletries- but no point for us cos we cannot bath mah.

    3) Some hospital will provide baby clothes and blanket, so do check with the nurse 1st.

    Hope the above can help you.

    re: Things to bring for hospital stay & delivery - WHAT TO PACK LIST

    Add on to Cheng list:

    - maternity/nursing bras- breast Pads
    nipple creams in case will sore
    - disposable panties or daily wear panties (of larger size or maternity one)
    disaposable is better, change and throw,
    - open button dressing gown (easier for breastfeeding)
    encouraged, the open button best is full buttons or at least half the clothe is button, not those 2-4 buttons one. . .
    - going home clothes
    - sweater/long bottoms
    - sock
    - sanitary pads
    - comfortable shoes
    - comb,hairband
    - nursing Pillow (if you have, otherwise use hospital pillows will do)
    - towel (if you want to wipe your body)
    - powder



    Others:
    - camera/video cam
    - Charger for HP and camera
    - documents to claim for Medisave
    best is all receipts to be kept in a clear folder. Your dear husband can just pass the whole file to the officer who will do the necessary.
    - cord blood kit (if you sign up for that)


    Notes:
    1) Remember to ask your mum/inlaw to prepare the red dates tea for you.
    Cos once delivery, try not to drink too much plain water.
    best is not to drink any plain water, ask for milo if no one boil red dates tea.


    2) Some of the website will suggest toiletries- but no point for us cos we cannot bath mah.
    bring toothbrush/toothpaste/face towel and facial foam

    3) Some hospital will provide baby clothes and blanket, so do check with the nurse 1st.
    1 set of clothes for baby to wear home, 1 pair of mittens and booties, 1 pc of swaddle (I brought that even thought Thomson Medical Center provided, but I wanted my son to wear home the first piece of clothe bot by his parents.

    re: Things to bring for hospital stay & delivery - WHAT TO PACK LIST

    wah very comprehensive lists...

    just to add on abit...

    its useful to prepack these items 2 to 3 weeks prior to EDD coz you never know when baby will come out earlier ....

    for me the most useful and important thing that i ever brought there was:

    1) Socks - Coz its really really cold at night in the ward....feets get cold easily
    2) Sweater and Slipper - Coz after stitches you cannot really move about in shoes....just drag drag along with those flip flops....sweater for wearing when discharged
    3) Other than that most of the other items are provided by the hospital, even the pads that i brought along did not really use coz the ones hospital provided are softer and more comfy than my own
    4) Any1 mentioned newborn clothes??? I did not bring or actualli i did not own any...coz we bou those for 2m/3m old ones and its just too big and loose!!! (heard from pple dont buy coz will outgrow easily)

    Yup. After you register for birth, can apply. Which hospital are you going to deliver in? I delivered at KK. If you pre-book the delivery package, they will give you a whole load of forms to fill in to apply for the birth cert and baby bonus. So you just pass to your hubby and let him go apply after the baby is born.

    You can register baby during discharge if you already have the baby names.

    Can only submit for baby bonus once you have baby birth cert.

    is better to do everything in the hospital though need to pay additional administrative fees...save the hassle of going down to ICA

    re: Things to bring for hospital stay & delivery - WHAT TO PACK LIST

    Went see doc on Fri. My edd Dec 7 but baby est to be 2.9kg now. If I carry full term she might be close to 3.9kg! However he say I might give birth 1-2 weeks earlier than edd. I've been so lazy to get started packing my bags. Qn. Thomson Medical Center doesn't provide pjs? How long is the stay, assuming I have to go for c-section.

    Thanx CanCanMum. That is actually a relief. Doc did say it's not 100% accurate but it was frightening just to hear it.

    Hi mamapenguin,

    I just had my C-sect in Jul08. Usually, if no infection or watsoever, you shld stay for 4days 3nites. Both of my C-sect are 4days stay. If your doc agrees & you're fine, you could even leave on the 3rd day!

    Hehe.. I guess after delivery, all you wanna do is rest and go home, eh?
    Which pediatrician are you seeing at Thomson Medical Center? I have no one in mind yet. Do we have to pay extra if we request for a particular pediatrician?
