Now i know im going to be one of the moms who packs unpacks and repacks way way way to early their hospital bag. But today i found out when i deliver (via c-Section) that i will be alone for the following days. I understand why, my husband works, my dad has to take care of my little sister, and ill be delivering around christmas /new years So i cant expect family except at birth so, what should i pack in my hospital bag like for me babies and entertainment?

2 gowns for yourself at least, books, word puzzles, you might be able to take a mp3 or cd player for music.  For the babies I would just pack 2-3 sleeping gowns and recieving blankets.  Our birthing center here provided everything else.

Oh coming home outfits for the babies is important.

Loose fitting clothing.  Extra shirts, book, paper and pens, phone or tablet for game playing.

warm socks, maybe 2 pairs

When I had DD, the nurse took my socks during delivery and my feet were very cold until the next day when DH went home to get me more.

Music, electronics, camera and don't forget cords and chargers. A book to read, crossword or word search books, a deck of cards, pen and paper for writing.

Loose fitting clothes, socks, nursing friendly tops (if you're breastfeeding), slippers, shampoo and soap (I prefer my own over the hospital stuff), toothbrush/paste.

Don't forget your going home outfit for the babies :)
