  • Hi, check out march forum, i started a post this week and you will find loads of ideas on there xxxxx
  • I think i better get my bum into gear, you all seem so organised and i havent even started getting one together yet. Does anyone know if you have to bring your own milk in if your bottle feeding?
  • Don't worry, I've only made the list - I don't even have half the things on the list yet!!!

    Sorry, don't know about milk.
  • owww, my auntie recently had a baby and the hospital didnt even provide a blanket to wrap baby in once they moved her from delivery to the ward, the poor little thing was wrapped in a towel..so id add a baby blanket or 2 as well, just in case
