  • shampoo/conditioner
    toothpaste/toothbrush
    hairbrush
    PLENTY OF CLEAN UNDIES -.-'
    outfit to go home in
    a couple/few outfits for baby
    anything that would help you feel comfy like pillows from home, pajamas, socks, even a blanket. =]

    I don't think I wore my own clothes until the day I left because there is just so much blood and I didn't want to stain my clothes/pjs...so I just wore the hospital gown. I didn't need pads from home, the ones from home aren't anywhere near big enough for this -.-'

    Good luck =]
