How many towels would you suggest for the birth? We have a bunch but just trying to think if we should get more (just found someone selling them for a really good deal.)
How many towels?
I've used 2 each time. I had 3-4 stacked up with the birth stuff, just in case I needed more but I never really had a messy labor/birth. I had a rug or a tablecloth underneath me at the actual moment of when the baby was emerging, and then something to wrap baby with (the two towels) and wrap me with (a light woven cotton blanket). I guess if I needed more towels I'd get one from the linen closet.
I didn't use a lot either. I gave birth on the floor on top of a couple towles and a shower curtain. I showered after the birth, so maybe two? Later, I sat on chux pads on my bed. My husband purchased 1 1/2 dozen and even more washcloths. I used only a few washcloths, too. We still laugh about it.
