  • bring the baby a take home outfit and if the hospital does pictures you will need an outfit for pictures. the hospital gives you some kind of net underwear to wear with the big pads some dont like them so you might want to bring underwear and some pads

  • Maybe some menus for local restaurants that deliver, a book (although you probably won't get to use that.), CAMERA!, a pillow...

  • Bring your own pads, lots of undies you don't mind tossing and lots of socks(my water broke once and kept leaking so I needed lots of socks!) Socks are important! The baby you just need going home clothes. Good luck!

  • I brought my own underwear, those netting ones sucked. I brought the pacifiers that I wanted my baby to have. Video camera, I taped alot the day aftyer and driving home. Comfy dark pajama pants and a nice robe. My hospital had nursing gowns so I didnt need that. If you have a boppy pillow that will come in handy for breastfeeding.

  • Definitely socks and your own pillow. I forgot mine and it was my worst mistake. My head was hurting more than the labor. It was cold, the socks helped a lot. Outfit for the baby, your camera and the boppy pillow is a good idea. Another thing I forgot.
