  • I packed clothes to wear home, clothes for baby, camera, baby book, phone numbers, snacks for my husband, nursing bras because I plan to breastfeed, panties, brush, other tolietries, and a book to read during my stay. I packed at 35 weeks. I still have 2 and a half weeks to go til due day.

  • Clothes for the day I got discharged, panties and panty liners, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, breast pads, nursing bra, hair brush, certainly a comfy nightgown (offers more modesty than those darned hospital gowns), socks, book, phone charger, phone, camera, and a few outfits for the baby.

  • Bring granola bars to eat in the middle of the night. Also bring the baby book, you can usually ask the nurses to do hand and foot prints if they have time:)

    Extra hair ties and chap stick, Boppy pillow, camera and more mid-night snacks (it's hard to wake up to breastfeed when you're feeling hungry too)
