    What to pack for Matilda?

    I am due next month and would like to get some input from recent moms that had delivered in Matilda on what to bring. The list provided by Matilda seems rather short. I would like to know if there are any other things not listed that I need to bring with me. I heard inflatable ring and postpartum support belt are not provided by the hospital, so I will pack those with me. anything else?

    i just delivered at matilda and honestly, you would probably be fine with nothing other than a change of clothes to go home for you and the baby! they provide a good breastfeeding pillow (like a big boppy), pumps, and almost everything you will need. fyi, i received a postpartum support belt (don't know whether it was through the hospital or prescribed by my doctor). good luck!

    I will bring a packet of travel size tissues for quick cleaning after meals. Then suzuran wipes that comes in a box for cleaning of nipples when breastfeeding. About 15 or 20 packets per box. Packing in aluminum foil that you can dipped in to hot water for warm wipes. Sold in most supermarkets, mannings and waston.

    No need to 'clean' nipples before breastfeeding, they're not dirty...

    I recall i didn't use anything I brought along with me, except for the change of clothes home. Matilda provides everything.

    I didnt clean it just saw some mummies doing it. Anyway, those wipes not necessary for nipples. I use it at home when my baby is still in infant stage to clean inside her mouth and so on. :)

    Nothing really, if you prefer wearing your own clothes then do carry them along.
