 I packed a new shirt for me, socks, pajama pants, tooth brush and tooth paste, my comb, face soap, and my laptop. For the baby I packed a going home outfit, diapers, and wipes. I was only in the hospital a day and a half, so that's all I needed.

Most hospitals provide everything for the baby and even toliteries for you.. The biggest thing you need is going home outfits for you and baby and the camera.

 When I pack a regular diaper bag I have: diapers, wipes, extra onesies, socks, spit rags, bibs, bottles, a pacifier, lotion, desitin, baby hat, and a blanket. When he's older I'll add snacks and toys to the bag.

I know that this won't fit in the diaper bag, its just a suggestion, have the car seat installed. My hubby and I didn't have the car seat installed before our daughter came. Although in our defense she decided to come 2 weeks early!! Don't forget the camera, another thing we forgot!! Good Luck with your labor and delivery!!

Diapers, wipes, nuk/pacifier... if you are doing that, bottles if you are doing that, boobie pads, lots of outfits :) A CAMERA ( I would pack a disposable in the diaper bag just in case you forget to grab one, batteries for your camera if you have one. Butt rash cream (just in case) baby lotion, bibs, burp clothes, blanket, little socks. Ummm packing changing table/mat if you use those. A toy or stuff animal if you'd like. This is just for baby right??? Don't forget the car seat :)
