I was told a must for C-section hospital bags are Gas -X and Stool softeners what do you all think are these a must or No?
If your hospital doesn't provide stool softeners (which I think they would) BRING THEM, lol. Gas-x Im not sure on, as I never used it, the pain you get from surgery probably can't be helped with that, but if you're gassy by nature, Id say yeah, bring it, just be sure to tell the hospital IF you take something they didn't give you.
Bought myself a few things from 31 during a big sale they had, and it finally came yesterday! This is the bag I'll be taking to the hospital, I took it from a weird angle, so it's hard to tell size, but it's a good sized bag, should hold all my goodies.
I hate packing, I hate clutter, I'm usually not in the hospital much more than 24hrs anyway. I'll probably just throw in something to wear home for me and the baby, my toothbrush because I hate the hospital ones, and my ipad. And when I say throw in, I mean 5 minutes before I leave for the hospital.
