What do you recomment packing for the bag to take to the hospital?

I used at list I found in a magazine when I had my first baby. Its been three years, so I dont remember what I took. I just know I want to take only what I absolutely need. I will not feel like unpacking a lot of unused stuff when I get home.

  • big underwear... otherwise you have to use those mesh ones the hospital provides. Don't forget a hair tie. Then just the obvious stuff:

    camera
    baby book for foot prints
    phone/charger
    shampoo
    soap
    glasses/contacts
    clothes/baby clothes
    car seat

  • other than the basics if you dont want to wear the stupid hospital gowns the whole time bring a few sets of comfy pjs... ohh and maybe a book to read while you wait for baby to come ( i was in the hospital for 16 hours bored untill i went into full labor) and make sure your camera is fully charged.
