  • Outfit for the baby. A blanket and hat for the baby. A carseat. A robe for you. Your bath stuff, shampoo, makeup , toothbrush, ect. Some maxi pads, the hospitals suck. I brought my pillow from home too. If you have long hair you may want to bring a hair scrunchie or a head band. Some warm socks too. Hospitals are cold. My husband brought lotion and rubbed in on my feet and legs afterwards. (nice) PS--take the diapers in the room home with you too. (you'll need all you can get!)LOL

  • I am packing my bag as well, but I was told that if you are planning on breastfeeding that you might want to bring a boppy if you have one.

  • Quarters for vending machines!
    Also bring your own nightgowns and robes. The ones they have are gigantic and terrible. Especially when your trying to somewhat look normal when you have visitors or walk down to the nursery. Xtra blankets. Its freezing.

  • basically all you need is an outfit for baby to come home in and something to change into for you after baby come. You dont need alot of panties because they will give you the disposable net ones, any baby supplies such as diapers/wipes/etc the hospital has, inclucing formula if thats what you choose. unless oyu want a book to read or something, make it easy on yourself and just take you lol.
