Mum stuff is pretty straightforward. Obviously, quantities of things will vary depending on the length of your stay once bubba arrives. It’s hard to know because it varies so much, so I’d err on the side of caution and pack enough for a minimum of three nights if it’s your first kiddo, and one if it’s been an uncomplicated pregnancy for subsequent children.
Bubba’s list is a little easier to nail down…
Good luck and send pics!

You probably won’t notice you’ve stopped doing this, but now you’re a mum, looking after yourself is still super important. Maybe even more important than it used to be way back in the day when you had the time and inclination to do it. While your focus might be getting pulled in a million different directions, the truth remains: you’re still here, you still matter and your health and wellbeing is a priority. So many of us mums get sucked down a rabbit hole of self-neglect so deep it can literally take years to clamber back out. Add to that those of us with multiple kids, jobs, partners and even friendships that need attention – where is the headspace left for us? I have to admit it, there was a year or so there, where I just completely forgot to look after myself. Like, at all. It’s an easy habit to slip into.
Self care for new mums is so essential, especially when it means setting up good habits for the long term. So how do we do it? How do we get ouroxygen masks on first?
