  • comfortable clothes for you, some snacks, pads, slippers maybe a robe. something to keep your mind busy a book, mp3 player something like that. Pack a diper bag with everything. they usually have dipers and wipes, but still good to have your own. cloths for the baby to wear home, carseat, blanket for baby. I rally didn't bring much just cloths go wear home.

  • I would bring all of the stuff the the PP suggested. Also, cell phone charger, shampoo, conditioner, brush, toothbrush and toothpaste, deoderant, hair ties...if you wear glasses or contacts make sure to bring your glasses (I forgot mine!)
    As for baby, I packed a whole diaper bag but I didn't ahve to use anything but her clothes to go home. The hospital put her in little gowns and provided all of the diapers and wipes and everything else. Also, if your hospital was like mine...I got to keep all of the diapers in the room, thermometers...everything! It was awesome!
    If you want to use a binky, bring a couple...the hospital had some but she didn't care for them.
    Good Luck!

  • its good you want to pack early, i had my son at 32 weeks. i had nothing packed, didnt even have the crib together. pack a comfitiable outfit to go home in, slippers, shampoo, bodywash, deoderent, hair brush. those are something i made my husband go back home and get!
