  • My daughter wore the diaper and the hospital t-shirt. She did have the little hat on, but it kept falling off and she would cry every time we'd put it back on, so we just left it off unless she went back to the nursery and then we'd put it back on quick, like we were trying to pretend she had it on the whole time. LOL. She was also swaddled most of the time, too.

  • Onesies we brought from home. My first wore the hospital shirt and diaper until he peed on it, then we changed him into a onesie. My second wore just a diaper for the first couple of days in the NICU, then they started putting onesies on her, so I took her some of her own.

  • Our hospital has baby clothes in a variety of colors & sizes - they dress the baby and change the baby, we can put our own clothes on and if they need to change them we get our clothes back but it's nice they're fully dressed at all times. Plus they all get a hat that they take home and the hospital blankets. We have a really nice hospital!

  • My babies wore the t-shirts and blankets the hospital had. I did bring one outfit for them to wear the day they got to go home.

  • My kids wore the tshirts and blankets from the hospital. For my 4th we brought a hat from home (because I don't like the hats they have there)

  • Our hospital has a stict policy that the babies have to stay in hospital clothes until they are discharged, it's a safety/security policy.
