  • A couple of newborn diapers?? But they give you those at the hospital too! So actually, I think the outfit is all you need! And a hat if it's cold where you are. Actually, they gave me a cute little knit hat at the hospital too. They even gave me a receiving blanket, a snot sucker, and a thermometer! They just load you up on gear before you go home.
    So yeah, I think just the outfit and a hat (in case), and pack well for yourself.

  • I didn't pack anything, they gave me everything I needed in the hospital and we didn't stay all that long.

  • Ooh, and if you find a breast pump is out of your financial reach- they might be able to help you with that too (talk to the lactation consultant). That was the coolest thing, thank you State-Of-Wisconsin!
