  • Wow!! Everybody else got a ton of stuff!! All the hospital gave us was the nose sucker and some huge pads for me!! They didn't give me any diapers!! That would have been nice. They said NOT to give him a pacifier, and they don't give out formula samples so no formula for me!! Our hospital sucked!!!!!!

  • Ours gave any diapers from an open package, and anything that had been used on the baby other than clothes/blankets (snot sucker, pacifier, etc)

    That's about it.

  • When we were leaving the hospital they gave us an open package of diapersthat we were using and then one of the nurses brought me another package, all my nurses weren't paying attention so we got like 20 bottles of premixed formula, a package of wipes, his pacifier, a snot sucker, a thermometer, small travel size bottles of baby wash and lotion, a water bowl to give them a sponge bath, a comb thing to was his hair, a diaper bag with a bunch of stuff in it and then of course all the things to clean his circumcision. We also took the hat they put on him when he was getting cleaned up but you have to leave the clothes there.

  • We got a case of premade formula bottles, a diaper bag filled with more formula, diapers, hat, blanket, snot sucker, thermometer,and I think that's it. The catch? You get charged for it all in your bill.

  • We got tons of stuff. Diapers, lotions, We took a couple of receiving blankets (don't tell) gauze, a diaper bag full of samples, We are breastfeeding so it had stuff for that, no formula because we asked them not to give it. My favorites were a canvas bag with books in it and a sitz bath.
