  • dont forget to pack a couple things for your husband or boyfriend also the baby stuff like clothes and a couple diapers just incase your hospital doesnt offer them also if you are bottle feeding bring a can of the formula that you are going to prefer other then that im not to sure i kow you can sign up on gerber.com they give you a hell of a long list but you dont need all of it but it can give you an idea of what you may be forgetting

  • Things to help you during labor if your planning on spending anytime laboring at the hospital such as heat packs, bottles of juice and water (you need to bring your own incase they try to tell you no), lotion or massage oil, CD's if that comforts you or if your using Hypnobabies, etc.

    Then the things you need like nursing pads, lanolin, snacks for during and after labor, clothes and blankets for the baby, clothes for your DH, money for the vinding machines, etc.

    Also many hospitals are going "formula free" so if your planning to FF you'll need to provide your own just in case but hey there certainly is nothing wrong with giving BREASTFEEDING A GO!!
