  • 00o0o yea and a camera and LOTS of batteries :)

    Things to pamper yourself so you feel fresh when everyone is there.

    Also don't be afraid to set your own hours for visitors :) The hospital allowed 7am til midnight and I asked anyone who wasn't my parents or DH to only be there from 9am-10pm

  • I didn't bring one at first. I went to the hospital, had my son and called a friend to bring one for me. I told her what I needed.. mostly phone charger, change of clothes.. everything else was provided for me.. all toiletries, giant disposable panties, pads, etc.

  • Everytime I answer this question I have to add this..
    a couple pairs of larger undies that are comfy but that you wouldn't mind throwing away if need be.. sorry tmi, but lets face it.. it's true. lol

  • I just packed mine this morning and all that is in it is:
    bathroom items (shampoo, conditioner, brush, toothpaste, toothbrush, deoderant)
    a robe
    clothes to wear home (shorts, shirt, underwear, bra)
    the baby's outfit (one for pictures and one to wear home, the one I have for pictures will be too hot I think to wear home)
    a receiving blanket
    That is it. This is my third and I have found that this is all I need. My hospital supplies underwear, I use those so I mess up my own and I wear the hospital gowns instead of ruining my own pjs. They also supply pads, diapers and whatever else you may need. I also do grab my pillow when we leave for the hospital.
