Good Evening, ladies!!
I have some question about what to do to finalize my preparations for the hospital and some last minute jitters. I am delivering via repeat c/s on Friday morning at 8:30. I just bought some of the Lansinoh disposable nursing pads and Lansinoh ointment for my nipples in case of irritation. I have a boppy, a newly re-covered glider to nurse in (I sewed the slip-cover myself and am VERY proud--so pardon me while a brag a bit!) I've got the diaper changing station set up w/2 piles of diapers (6 for the wet diapers, 4 for the poopies so I don't have to count, I'll know she has had enough wet/poopie diapers when I use all of them that I have out.) DH and I have decided to try co-sleeping, so I've got all but our 2 pillows off the bed, and 1 sheet. I have a copy of "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" in my hospital suitcase, and the #'s for the LLL leaders in my area so I can call them from the hospital if I need help.
What am I missing? Tell me if there is anything else you guys think I need for the hospital--anything else I need to do to get ready to bring her home next Monday or Tuesday (whenever they discharget me)???
Any help/encouragement you all can offer me would be GREAT!!!
Thanks in advance!
