Going the the hospital

What should I have packed in my bag for the hospital? I have 2 outfits packed for the baby (incase she poops on one) and the blanket my mother-in-law bought her. I dunno what else to pack. Should my husband pack something too???

  • Also take clothes for yourself that aren't going to be tight for the trip home. I also took my favorite lotion & by all means a camera with a fully charged battery. (Extra film if it uses it.) Best of luck.

  • clothes for you, robe if you want it, any comfort things, they will give you diapers and wipes and use them while they're free... you could use another change for the baby, but daddy will need clothes unless he plans to leave... any cameras or cell phone, house slippers or they can give you hospital socks and they give you undies to wear that are like the most amazing things you'll love em, lotions good to if you want a massage... or like a massager if your hubby doesn't do it... anything to get through labor
