  • I ended up packing more than i needed, you just really need some soap (nothing smelly), pads,a hair brush, toothbrush, a nursing bra and breast pads and toothpaste, some pjs, and clothes for baby, and a camera! Take use of their tv, itll be on your charge whether you use it or not, i had brought books and stuff and didnt use anything, i either watched tv or played with baby, they provide the most comfortable underwear that really helps cuz it doesnt even feel like your wearing it (itll be nice, youll be sore), they also give you really comfy socks that have skids on the bottom so you dont slip and fall either. Also if you plan on putting your baby on a binkie bring your own, i found out the hard way that the green pacifiers they give you are just so not worth the hassle

  • i had mine the week before i was "supposed" to go in to be induced, BUT i went into early labor and didnt have my bag with me. went the hospital bc i was hurting and he sent me straight down to labr and delivery. I packed anything i thought i needed. a robe, socks, tooth brush, hairbrush , extra clothes to leave in and for the baby i packed 2 outfits. couldnt decide what to dress him in to come on, and i packed his baby book, some socks to put on his hands cuz they scratch their face up real bad and its the only thing that stays on good. everything else is usually there for you at the hospital for the baby
