At the hospital I am going to deliver at you only stay the night that your child is born basicly, and then are released the next day.(as long as there are no complications).. I have read all these list's of things from different places on what is good to bring.. but I want to hear from people who have had the hospital exxperience themselves though and know what they think is best.
so far I have packed:
A button up night gown
2 Nursing Bras (Should I throw in some of those leaky pad things for the breast milk??)
2 Nursing Tanks
a pair of night shorts and pants to wear depending on how cold/hot I am
some relaxing lotion
my pillow spray(it relaxes me also)
2 calming CD's (theres a dvd player in the room)
my pillow(regular and nursing.. dunno if I feel like lugging my body pillow around also)
a comfey robe
soft socks (I hear the pedal things are cold, and thats how my doctor delivers)
Some travel sized shampoo, condtioner, etc.....
my baby book
and outfit for him to go home in ( I read that footie one pieces are easiest) and a cap
a birth plan.
so I think I still need:
snacks? for the babies father right?
the babies father an extra set of clothes?
a blanket to take the baby home with..(what kind? it may be slightly chilly)
they say an outfit for me to go home in... I figure I will just want to wear sleepy pants and a tank and sweater....
Any other sugestions?????? Is any of this stuff unnecessary?
