Packing List for the clinique

Taken from the clinique's little book:

For the birthing room:

For you:

  • A short cotton t-shirt or a pyjama top with short sleeves
  • Sanitary towels (night time ones)
  • Paper pants (large size)
  • Water spray (like Evian or something like that)
For the baby:
  • A towel and a flannel
  • A cotton body / vest
  • A wool cardigan (even in Summer)
  • Pyjamas
  • Socks
  • Nappy
  • A blanket to wrap him / her in (I added this after they wrapped Alicia in a towel to meet me for the first time...)

For your stay:
  • Your wash bag with gynecological soap
  • Towels and a flannel
  • Slippers
  • Nightie or Pyjamas
  • Dressing gown
  • Sanitary towels
  • Paper pants
  • Hairdryer
  • Bottled water (I added this, as they do sell it in the vending machines, but it's very expensive.)
For breastfeeding mums:
  • Clothes that open at the front
  • Cream for your nipples (order some Lansinoh from the chemist - expensive but worth it)
  • Breastfeeding bra
  • Breast Pads to go into your bra in case of leaks
For the baby:
  • A towel for each day
  • A cotton body/ vest for each day
  • A wood Cardi for each day
  • Pyjamas for each day
  • Socks for each day
  • Nappies
  • A sleeping bag (they supply sheets and blankets which I preferred to use, as if baby throws up during your stay on your one (or two sleeping bags) you can't wash it - they do replace their sheets anytime you ask them though.
