Start packing my hospital bag as soon as I reach 2nd trimester, which's months ago, and yet I feel unprepared @.@ I've got tree bags full (one for BB, one for me, and one for tools & other necessities like breast pump, nursing pillow, milk bottles, confinement herbs & the list goes on...) but there's lots of items to be packed still. Hmm... Panic attack. Confirmed.
Going through all the baby stuff is quite a fun task actually, especially picking BB's going-home outfit (*^___^*) Oh ya, actually we do not need to bring anything for BB during the hospital stay, including infant clothes, receiving blankets, diapers and etc... All the items will be provided by the hospital and we were told that they will usually give us tons of freebies, sample kits, and mama bags to bring home with. But we want to bring something special for BB to wear as her first outings into the world, yup, that's the going-home outfit, let's see what I've got here after filtering all her newborn clothes...
#1 The first newborn set I purchased at 10 weeks preggie, not knowing BB's gender but super eager to fill her closet with cute clothes ;)
#2 So cute right?
#4 The minty green, playful polka dots, pinky kitty prints & ribbons are too perfect for summer~~
#6 A real adorable outfit but I think it's a little costly for newborn.
I mean, it still costs you the same if you get the 12-months or 24-months, but Chean insisted to buy the S.M.A.L.L.E.S.T size, hmm... All experienced mums, including my mum & my MIL, advised me not to buy too many newborn & 0-6 months clothes because BB will outgrow them before she gets a chance to wear it. So I did my very best to convince Chean about this all-mums-know-it philosophy and tried to talk him into getting the 12-months instead...
But Daddy Chean got a little livid and frustrated and he said: "I don't want my BB to wear loose outfits, you got it?"
I just thought to save money mah although I'm not good at saving at all... Since then, I never dare to stop him from choosing the "right" size for BB :( See, it's not just me! Daddy Chean goes out of control too!!! And guess what, Bao Bao's mini closet is cramped with clothessssss and accessoriesssss, from newborns to 24-months (already spoiled, how? That gets me worried)!!!
Anyway, back to the going-home outfits, I still can't make up my mind; they are equally cute! Guess I'll bring them with me and let Bao Bao picks her favorite at the hospital (^___^)V
