  • Lol, I just brought some clothes for me and a change of clothes for the baby. They provide everything you need except clothes to go home in and a car seat.

  • I ended up packing WAY less the 2nd and 3rd times. All I packed was jammies to sleep in, a change of clothes to wear home, tooth brush, toothpaste, hair brush...and the 3rd time I got a little vain and packed my make up too :) For baby I packed a going home outfit, and wipes. They have blankies, and diapers (I am however cloth diapering this time, so we might bring those with us too), so I saw no reason to pack that stuff. Oh, and the boppy.

  • I took a lot less my 2nd time because I knew exactly what I needed (it had only been 15 months since I had my 1st child).

    I'm 36 1/2 weeks and haven't even started packing.  Heck I don't even have a carseat yet (then again, I don't have a car right now).  I know exactly what I'm bringing I've just been too lazy to gather it up an put it in a bag.

  • I took much less the second and third time and the only thing I took for the baby were the take home outfit, a couple of flannel blankets and that was it. The rest of the bag was clothes for me and my bathroom goods. I didn't even pack my bag until I was 38 weeks both times!
