Prepare supplies such as newborn clothing, nappies, baby wipes - You go through a lot of them with a newborn. Prepare the cot and baby bedding. Buy many 'wraps' to snuggle your newborn in. Prepare the travel seat for your car and your bag for the hospital. Include in your bag some snacks for yourself such as musli bars or biscuits as you may be eating at odd hours during your stay. You'll also need to pack a supply of maternity pads and breast pads. Pre-wash your baby clothes but don't use a very perfumed detergent as baby may be sensitive to this. Pack yourself warm clothes for the hospital as the air-conditioning may be cold, and some slippers and flat shoes for yourself. Good luck!
