One thing, Don't bother with any diapers, you can take all the ones in the bassinet home with you! Leave room in the diaper bag for all the stuff you can stuff into it. :)
Otherwise, if you have a pillow you simply HAVE to have to sleep, bring it with you.
Camera, video camera. If your hospital has WI FI bring a laptop if you have one. I am hoping mine does so I can post pictures online later that day :) Hee hee.
And your phone numbers and cell for all those phone calls.
If you dont' mind some of your own PJS getting quite gross and you feel like you'd be more comfy in your own PJs bring a couple pair. Otherwise, if you don't mind the hospital gowns, stick with them, that way you dont' have to worry about possibly having stains all over your own PJs forever.
If you are going to breastfeed, bring along a tube of Lansinoh (or Purelan) and begin using it the very first time you nurse! Just apply some right after nursing
