Getting the layette ready to go to hospital
It is advisable to get the layette ready to take to the hospital at least one month before your due date. This will save you from rushing at the last minute and means you won't forget anything if the baby decides to come early.
For the arrival of your baby and your stay in hospital, you'll need the following things in your layette:

Items for the newborn babyCotton bodysuits with short or long sleeves, depending on the season when the baby is due (at least 5)

  • Day clothes (cotton outfits preferably 2-piece outfits without any embellishments on). Some hospitals recommend dressing the baby in pyjamas during their stay at the hospital so you will only need a day outfit the day when you leave the hospital.
  • Cotton pyjamas.
  • Cotton socks or booties.
  • A cotton cap.
  • Bibs (3 or 4).
  • A baby blanket or swaddling cloth for when you leave hospital.
  • Nappies for the newborn (about 30) and baby wipes.
  • Mittens for the cold and so the baby can't scratch himself (you can use socks instead).
  • A natural sponge.
  • Special moisturising cream for babies.
  • Dummy
  • It is advisable to wash the clothing items first with neutral soap and take the labels off.
  • You can also take a soft brush for the baby's hair and if you take baby cologne, remember you can use it on the baby's clothes but never on his skin.

Items for the mother
Nightshirts that open down the front (easier for breastfeeding)

  • Nursing bras
  • Knickers (it is advisable to use disposable knickers)
  • Socks
  • 1 Dressing gown
  • Slippers
  • 1 bag to put your dirty washing in
  • Nursing pads
  • Sanitary towels
  • Wash bag

Some clinics and hospitals offer special recommendations about what items to include in the layette, either because they offer some of the items themselves and you don't need to take them or because they have specific restrictions regarding the baby's clothing or the use of accessories. It is advisable to check the advice given at the centre where you are scheduled to give birth before packing your baby's layette and your case.

Endometriosis is a condition for which little is known about the causes and the reasons why it appears and develops.
