  • Let's see... the most useful thing was definitely my own pillow and sheets... Those hospital pillows are awful and the sheets were scratchy. The most useless thing I brought was make-up... I had intentions of putting on make-up for all the visitors and pictures but in reality the most I accomplished, appearance-wise, was to make sure that my boobs weren't exposed when someone walked in or took a picture. LOL. GOOD LUCK and CONGRATS (I assume you are expecting)!

  • Useful = My camera. I feel naked without it!
    Useless = My cell phone. I really didn't feel like making the obligatory calls to people or answer the phone/texts, I just wanted to rest, focus on my new baby and be with my husband.

  • The most useful thing I took.... Hmmm, I guess it was my own pjs. I hate those stupid hospital gowns.
    The most useless things I took had to be my books and knitting. I thought I would get bored. No one ever told me I'd spend those four days gazing at my new daughter in awe.

  • Useful - slippers, I used them to squeeze instead of crushing Kris' hands!
    Useless - makeup!! I could care less at that point, and no one else seemed to notice that I went without mascara!
