What did you find useful and what was a complete waste of space?
I was ther 4 days! Lots of towels! I know hospital provides them, but it urkes my gut to think of using someones else personal washclothes that they cleaned themselves with.EEEWWWW! I don't care what they were cleaned with! But also burp clothes, mittens, and the swadler blankets were useful for us. I also brought a pair of cheap houshoes just for the hospital that i threw away once i left that were very useful!

I found bringing clothes to wear in hospital a waste! trying to breastfeed in a regular shirt! frustrating!
i brought bathroom supplies, home night gowns (i had csection) Slippers, baby clothes didnt want him in the hospital clothes either, camara, computer, chargers for phone and computer, phone, snacks ( i think you definately need these unless your like hospital food)

I took a change of clothes for me and baby, my camera, and toiletries. That's it, lol. I practically packed suitcases with my first two, I got more realistic with my third.
Toiletries, camera, laptop (WITH charger), phone (WITH charger), and socks were probably the things I used the most. I made sure I brought lots of socks the second time around since hospitals are so cold, and I was always freezing after my c-sections.
Waste of space was tons of baby clothes (they don't need THAT much...we pretty much kept our newborns in the hospital t-shirts since they were being changed so often), and a boppy pillow. I never once needed a boppy but I know women who swear by them.
