Thought id share a couple tips for new moms leaving the hospital. I love using the water pitcher that I took home from the hospital to give my baby a bath ..it also works good for rinsing down the shower walls when I'm cleaning..so I recommend any new moms to definitely grab it before leaving the hospital. I've also heard that the basin they give u also works good as a tub for newborns if u don't already have an infant tub.

When dd was born they didn't give me anything! They would only bring us 1 diaper at a time even just so there wouldn't be any leftover.

The water pitchers were good just for having near by when nursing full of water LOL  We never had a basin since the nurses bathed her right in the sink.  They were specially designed to function as newborn bath tubs with one side sloped gently.

We were sent home with a little packet of newborn stuff=  donated by the companies I expect,  small bottles of lotion and baby wash, shampoo, a few diapers,... like that.

I use them to have for drinking water. I drinks a lot of water while breastfeeding to stay hyrdrated.  Our hospital sends us home with diapers,wipes, blankets, etc.

Our hospital encourages us to take anything left over in the room because they say it just gets thrown away including packages of diapers!

I only had my second at a hospital and they gave you the diaper and wet wipes. If were not to take anything else and if it was missing you were charged for it.
