  • lol no i didnt, but some of it came in handy like the camera and my pillow my own comfort items and snack for after wards because honestly you want something other than hospital food unless you have a good hospital with good food which does happen.

  • The only things I really used were slippers and jammies, shampoo and conditioner, soap, and clothes for the baby to go home in. oh and I did use a camera for baby #1... baby #2 was two weeks early so I wasn't prepared and didn't have a camera with me!

  • I didn't use half the stuff I packed!! I used my soap, shampoo, toothbrush and stuff but I didn't wear all the clothes I had packed. I didn't wear my robe because my body temp was so up and down. I took way to many baby clothes. The whole first day since she slept I kept her in the pajamas the hospital gave us!

  • Nope. Just the clothes and toiletries, digital camera, phone chargers, and the deck of cards (once) lol. I had a whole bunch of crap packed. I swear I thought I was going on vacation!

  • Have to agree with everyone else. I packed movies (the hospital had a tv and dvd player), a few outfits i thought i'd be comfy in, outfits for the girls (twins), shampoo, all that good stuff, even make-up. I think i used my slippers, my robe, my toothbrush and toothpaste, and a couple extra blankets for the girls.. And i had an outfit to go home in. I think thats pretty much it. I wouldnt go overboard - if you need anything extra, im sure someone in your family wouldnt mind getting you what you need/want. =) Just take all the time you can to bond with ur baby and get some sleep while you have the nurses to help you out.

  • I used my psp, shampoo and con. tooth brush, pillow and slipper. I also had my doll that I had since I was 4. DH grabbed her and put her in the bag without me knowing it. It was so cute.
