A NEW mom has just reminded her fellow parents that they are allowed to bring all diapers and newborn supplies in the ward after birth.
This is especially helpful for parents who don’t know when their child will arrive.
Karla, who just gave birth to her second son, shared on social media: “Hospital hack: take all the diapers and wipes they give you and always ask for more!
“Take it all! It’s yours!”
In the video, she can be seen packing up all the leftover diapers they left in the room.
Many parents are new or unaware of the extra diapers and wipes available and just think that if they leave them in, they won’t be charged.
However, one labor nurse responded to the video and said: “Yes, I work in a hospital – they will charge you even if you take it off.
And the second claimed: “If you don’t get them, we have to throw them away even if they’re not opened, at least at my hospital, that’s what we’re told.”
Several other mothers also agreed that they did this when they gave birth.
One mother wrote: “Nurses always say take it and bring me more. And formula when I leave.”
The second commented: “My nurse literally gave me a bag full of formula and diapers.”
And a third said, “When I left, the gift was a bag of formula and two bags of wallpaper. I didn’t get charged for that.”
Earlier, a mother who had just turned 25 weeks revealed that she was stocked up ready for the arrival of her baby.
Above Tiktok, she points out the mountain of baby products she has stored in a room with diapers, wipes, and clothes reaching the ceiling.
She wrote over the video: “What we have so far…
“We’re going to be 25 weeks tomorrow,” or six months, she explains.
The audio plays over the clip, which reads: “Tell me you’ve prepared your baby without telling me you’ve prepared your baby.”
In another Tiktok, she went through what she had, as she spun a tall pile of wipes, diapers of all sizes, and a table filled with baby laundry products.
Hanging in their packaging are a number of bathrobes with hoods, boxes of bottles and pacifiers, shelves for shoes and boots, and then a whole shelf of clothes from newborn to 3-6 months old .
She even made another clothes rack so that when her son gets older, he also has a stack of books.
Daja said they had a diaper raffle on their gender reveal, where every box of diapers they were given had a lottery number.
