Ok I need help..
What do I pack for my 3 1/2 year old for when I go into labor?

he will be going with either my mom or dad or my FIL. my MIL will be there with me :( anyway I need to know other than the obvious clothes and blanket.. should I send some toys?

he doesnt really have any comfort or fave toys well except his dinosaurs and cars.. (who'da thunk it.. that dinosaurs and cars got along lol)

should I pack those up for him.. If I do I am going to have to make a list of everything I send so we dont have anything come up missing.

also I had him "buy" a teddy bear for his little sister.. should I pack that in my bag or send it with him?
I want to keep it clean (if you havd a boy you know this wont happen if he takes it) But I also want him to be "responsable" for it

AHHHHHH I am confused!! lol

Thank you!

I would pack the special toys. Also a change of clothes for everyday, plus 1, maybe 2 extra. You could pack his pillow and blanket, pull ups if he wears them, anything you think he might need. There really wasn't much I packed for my older girls when I had my third. Just some clothes and their blankets and special toys and some diapers.

 I gave my mom enough clothes for the time, some snacks, a couple toys and her blanket/pillow. They brought my DD to the hospital during the day to give her baby brother a present and visit. Good LUCK!

 Just think of your son spending the day and night with family- pack for that. That's what I plan on doing.

Shell have her blankies and pillow-clothes, toys and some pull ups.

pretty much what everyone else said. Send his medication if he has any to take with a note that says how much and how often. I always send a toooth brush and stuff when he goes to the grandparents, his allergy meds, pillow, special blanket, clothes and stuff. They have Pjs and pull-ups for him there since he only wears them at bed time
