  • Yes, some baby outfits, clothes for you. Razor, toothbrush, toothpaste, brush or comb, shampoo and conditioner and maybe body wash. And maybe a few books or magazines to read during the day while baby sleeps if your not surrounded by people. DH brought our dvd player so i could watch dvds during the day. It was nice.

    I was totally unprepared and literally threw things together.

    Slippers, warm socks.

  • google "hospital bag checklist" (add pregnancy or labor and delivery if you want, not necessary though)
    it will give you lots of sites that have checklists. take your pick...or do what i did and print them all, then spend hrs comparing them, until your are absolutely sure that you had every possibly thing on one HUGE list. lol.
    i know it sounds silly but i have this thing about being overprepared. i packed and repacked bout 10 times, and had my baag by the door at 28 weeks.
    dont forget a bag for baby's things to come home from the hospital in.
