  • I brought a change of clothes (maternity because unless you're super woman, you won't have your figure back immediately. Don't bother bringing underwear.. the hospital will provide you disposable ones to accommodate the enormous pads they give you. The hospital will normally provide all toiletries... breast pads... nursing bra... cell phone charger, and a movie or 2... honestly you will be so busy with the baby and visitors that you won't get bored too easily. I was in the hospital for 3 days and was fine with just these things...

  • clothes for myself... pajamas, undies, socks, shirts, comfortable pants, my glasses, camera, cell phone

    for our baby: onsies, diapers, clothes (for when we come home), socks, hat, shoes, first stuffed animal, first baby blanket ect. i didnt need onsies and diapers though, got it all from the hospital :)

    oh and i had to have a scheduled c-section, thats why i took so much for myself

  • Shampoo, conditioner, soap, face wash/lotion, razor, underwear, socks,sports bra or nursing bra, cami tank tops, sweat pants, slippers(for walking around the hospital) laptop to post pictures up and to email with, camera, deodorant, the babies outfit to bring him home, the car seat, and a baby blanket. Honestly you don't need a lot and if you have forgotten something just send your DH home to pick it up.

  • I brought 2 outfits for myself, ( wasn't sure how long I would have to stay), a sleeper for the baby, an outfit or 2 for the baby while in the hospital, wipes (my hospital did not provide them), the camera, underwear, makeup, toothbrush, toothpaste, nice robe for over hospital gown. (It made me feel better when we had company there.)

    This time around I also plan on bringing up our laptop to get pictures posted while the baby sleeps, and maybe the baby book to fill in if I have time.
    I also brought some snacks for my husband and my son last time.
