Cotton wool or wipes

cotton wool and water for newborns or wipes? I’m 33 weeks pregnant and im getting my hospital bag ready just unsure of what to pack 


  • I took cotton wool and large cotton wool pads with my first child. Then realised after that first meconium poo (the first poo your baby does is like thick black sticky tar!) the wipes were fine - i used Huggies pure and have used them ever since - i've also heard water wipes are great too. Seriously, you're going to nd up mopping up so much poo and sick, the cotton wool just won't cut it! 

  • Thank you I will pack both I know some midwives are fussy but at the end of the day it’s my child so ultimately it’s my choice but I appreciate the feedback
