    Hi....

    Congratulations. You are getting closer. I am 31 week and it seems so far. I think you should try the bra before you buy it at this stage, because I don't think you will get more bigger now. And as far as nursing pads I am purchasing disposable Lansinoh 60ct nursing pad. I think you will be using lots of them. I have already put 2 boxes in my baby registry.

    And regarding the things you need to take to the hospital......

    2 nursing bras (if nursing)
    o nursing pads (rather you intend to nurse or not!)
    o 1 package of maxi pads with wings
    o 3-4 pairs of cotton undies
    o maternity outfit to wear home (you'll still be swollen)
    o 2 pairs of socks
    o slippers
    o toothbrush & toothpaste
    o facial cleansers ,soap and shampoo-conditioner.
    o hair brush clips to tie your hair and lip balm
    o daddy snacks (non-perishable)
    blanket for daddy (whoever is going to stay longer)
    o film & camera
    o portable cd player with headphones
    (don't use headphones when baby is in the room)
    o magazine or book (bring one for your spouse)
    o personal address book with phone numbers
    Baby Bag

    Car seat, without it hospital won't send baby home.
    o going home outfit for you and baby
    o sweater or snowsuit (depending on season)
    o baby cap or hat
    o booties or socks
    o mittens to keep baby from scratching face
    o few diapers
    o gentle baby wipes


    I won't take too much stuff to the hospital, because there is not enough room. Infact you should check with your hospital what items they will be providing, so you don't have to pack useless stuff. Take care.

    Hi IL ladies,

    I am planning to shop few items required after delivery like nursing pads , nursing bras and disposable underwear.

    Please any one let me know the best place to buy this in US. I was searching for use and throw undearwear so that It would be easy for me if it gets stained.

    Do let me know if anyone had idea.

    Hi Ampu...

    You can buy these items from any departmental stores. All these stores have a same brand name available. I bought Lanisinoh nursing pads, nursing bras from any ladies langrie departmental store but make sure you buy a little big size so you can fit disposable pads inside the nursing bra and disposable underwear you will find in pharmacy section. Take care.
