  • Unless you wanna hang out in that gorgeous hospital gown w/ the built in back air conditioner take your own. I was most comfy after a c section w/ a tee shirt & a pair of pj pants that were loose & the elastic was worn out on. Don't forget socks, the ones w/ the non skid on the bottom are the best for cold slippery hospital floors.

  • Sock!! I would wear those and not bother with slippers. I also preferred comfy pants and a shirt so I wasn't in pj's for visitors and pictures. I also always take clothes for the new baby! Our hospitals let you put the baby in whatever you want.

  • I agree with the previous posters. Some comfy socks to wear maybe with the sticky stuff on the bottom so you don't wipe out as well as some comfortable pants that won't bother your incision and a nice comfy shirt. Don't forget something to bring baby home in. Congrats on your new baby! I hope everything goes well for you.

  • I always packed my own PJ's...I HATE hospital gowns and was so much more comfy in my own clothes.
