  • think hotel stay.

    snacks, too and music, cash, phone numbers, baby book.

    a cute and comfy coming home outfit for you and for baby. film, batteries, chargers, camera cards, etc

  • i suggest better pads than the one's they give you at the hospital and extra underwear, i couldn't stand the underwear they gave me there. and a couple of comfy outfits for you, one for baby, and simple diaper bag in case you have to make a stop on the way home. have dh take care of camera's and stuff like that. you just focus on baby.

  • You'll need: a comfy outfit for you (stretchy pants, slip on shoes or slippers, robe, clean underwear) brush, toothbrush,tooth paste, hair tie,maybe some lip gloss and consealer for the many photo ops, I wouldn't really worry about snacks for you, but maybe some for the hubs.

    Have the DH bring: camera, batteries, cellphone, charger, phone numbers, baby name book (if you don't have a name picked out)

    For baby: 1-2 pjs, onesie, hat, blanket, hand mittens, most of the other stuff should be supplied by the hosp. ie; diapers, wipes, nose sucker, lotion....AND DON'T FORGET THE CAR SEAT!! LOL

    Usually the pregnancy books have a check list in the back, to help you out while you are suffering from notorious, pregnancy memory loss :)
