  • Better get packed now. I waited until the morning I went into labor. Pack pajamas, stop, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, brush, pads pillow.....basic things you would use at home. Pack a comfortable outfit to come home in. The hospital will give you some stuff but definitely bring your own pads. The hospital one suck! I got Kotex overnights and they were perfect!

  • My hospital supplied everything - pads, underwear, socks, toothpaste, deodorant, I never opened my bag! I wore the hospital gown because it's great for nursing and comfortable. Just bring toiletries, clothes to go home for you and baby, a camera, baby book and phone numbers.
