  • for the baby I am basically bringing a fully stocked diaper bag, just in case we have to stop and do a diaper change on the way home. which is possible. the hospital can be a long drive with rush hour traffic. but basically all you need is what the baby will go home in, a back up outfit, socks, scratch mittens if you plan on using them (i know a few people that don't), a blanket, pacifier if you want to use it, and the carseat. if the drive is long or you plan on stopping on your way home you will also want changing supplies.
