  • Your clothes for afterwards, under garments, toothbrush, baby clothes to go home in, hairbrush, Slippers, Etc. Don't forget your camera!

  • Just take the essentials. Toiletries and clothes to wear home and a nightgown if you don't want to wear the hospital gown. And for the baby you really only need carseat and a going home outfit. Don't take too much because you will be surprised at how much you end up bringing home. I went in with one bag and came home with a car full! And if you forget anything, don't freak, the hospital usually has anything you need, tooth brush, soap, etc.

  • I agree with mnadcox 100%. Oh and if someone wants to send you flowers tell them NOT to!!! Tell them to send them to your house. That was the biggest pain trying to get all of these flowers and balloons home with a new baby. I hated it. I did want all of them, until I was trying to get home with the new baby. HAHA I just thought of that!

  • I packed the day before I went in to be induced and brought some clothes for the baby to wear home...that's it...and I wore my sweats under that damn hospital gown...that's really all you need!
