I packed a tooth brush, tooth paste, hair brush, the hygiene products I normally like to use (shampoo, conditioner, body wash and deodorant), comfy pajamas, slippers, camera, cell phone with charger, underwear, nursing bra, nursing pillow, your own coming home outfit and baby's coming home outfit.

For you pack a change of EXTRA comfy cloths, a book or something to do while you are there and not in labor or the nurses have the baby. and for the baby the car seat and a set of cloths that you want to bring him/her home in. plus a blanket to keep the little one warm.

Diapers, wipes, Pads (for you) kotex are the best because they are super soft. Something easy for you to eat shortly after giving birth, I was starving!! And a housecoat! I really wish I had brought my own house coat, those hospital gowns are NOT cozy!

My hospital only supplied the first nappy.
Lots of pyjamas, undies, maternity bras, lip balm, massage thing for your back, loose fitting clothes, maternity pads.. gah, I can't remember!
For baby - singlet, couple of outfits, blanket for the car ride home, booties, nappies, wipes.
That's all I can think of. I've probably forgotten a lot.

I packed: one nightgown (my friend told me to get a gown, because the pads are big), a tank top and pants (for the second day), a robe, a book, flip flops, CAMERA, baby book, make up :), brush, nursing pads, nursing bra, a couple outfits for our son, a blanket for him and my going home outfit, jeans and a shirt. I think that is about it. My husband went home and got the things we forgot. Shampoo, boppy, toothpaste, his clothing... and my going home outfit, jeans and a shirt.

Our hospital had everything else. I think when I go again, maybe I'll bring my own pads, unless I bleed more next time. I had my son at 3:35 PM, but until I got back to the room, I just left the hospital gown on until the next day. I think I wore the mesh underwear the rest of the day and half of the first full day, but then I went back to my own.

well since everybody already told you everything here is my suggestion: get disposable underwear... it's so much easier and cleaner than regular. if something leaks you just dump them and don't have to deal with that yikes stuff in the hospital. I used them even at home until the strong bleeding stopped (like 10 days or so)
also get some good liners, in my hospital they had this really fad uncomfortable liners that didn't suck in anything... so i was glad i had my own liners.

Comfy clothes for you and baby. A bottle, car seat, camera, entertainment of some sort for you just in case your there for awhile, cell phone, an extra empty bag to help carry everything the hospital gives you for the baby and gifts. (you will leave with a lot more than you bring!) In reality just some clothes for you and your baby to go home with is all you need and the car seat. Everything else is provided for you.

at my hospital in BC, Canada they supplied everything for the baby: clothing, diapers, diaper cream, wipes and all that. they even give you a thermometer for checking your babies temp, that you get to take home with you. Other than that I just packed the outfit we were bringing the baby home in and some pacifiers. They supplied pads and and even a nursing pillow for me too. then for myself i packed clothes, a nursing bra, shampoo, towels, face clothe, toothbrush, and other toiletries, and we packed cameras, video camera, i pod, books, magazines and other things for entertainment. We had to supply all our own snacks and juice though.

Here in Ontario Canada, the hospital only supplies 6 diapers, so I had to bring my own, and some outfits and wipes, then stuff for myself. Bring a couple changes of clothes, extra sock/underwear, pj's shampoo and soap.

I packed pj's, socks, underwear for me, camera, brought my cell phone along with the charger, body wash, shampoo, face wash, tooth brush, tooth paste, breast pads and sanitary napkins, brush, nursing bra, an outfit to go home in for myself, and my own blanket since hospitals are always freezing. For my daughter I just brought an outfit to go home in, a couple diapers, some wipes.
