Im 31 weeks and am now getting nervous about the due date coming up soon. I was wondering what exactly am i suppose to put in the baby bag when we go to the hospital? Ive looked on the internet and they all say different things and I dont want to haul around unnecessary items. If you could tell me what you took maybe that will help me some. Thanks

I took all of the things listed as well as my boppy pillow to help with feedings and dont forget the baby book, if you have one, the hospital will put his/her little feet and hand prints in it for you. I also brought my own wipes, the hospital will provide some but they are very course like laundry sheets and you have to wet them before you use them and they are very harsh. And a binky if you plan on giving them one. Hope this helps

Bring your diaper bag for the baby. How you would pack a diaper bag for your child plus that specail outfit you want them to have a picture taken in. For yourself... Your pollow, camera, phone, hair things, personal bathroom iteams if you dont want to use theres, comfy clothes 2 outfits and a nursing gown. warm socks or slippers for walking around.

I just take some comfy T-shirts and sweats to wear. The outfit that we are bringing the baby home in, and personal items like shampoo and conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, brush, and camera. You really don't need to take a lot. And the hospital provides everything you need for you and your baby while you are there. Plus they send you home with a ton of stuff too!!

The baby bag? As in items for the baby or baby and yourself? I plan on putting in a few different outfits for the baby, a couple receiving blankets, a soft blanky, and some items depending on if youre planning on breastfeeding such as nipple cream. For myself I will be bringing a couple pairs of comfortable sweat pants, a couple shirts (for after labor and delivery), my blanket, my pillow, my blackberry, slippers, and personal hygiene items like shampoo, deodorant, ect. in travel sizes. They give supply a lot of the little things for you at the hospital. Diapers, creams, ect. And of course dont forget the infant car seat because most hospitals wont let you leave the hospital without one! Good luck! :)

I packed 3 outfits, a bib, and a really warm blanket. Most hospitals supply diapers, and bathing items. I also packed headbands because mine were girls. My first I looked like I was moving in, but my second I really didnt pack alot. For my i pack some comfy pants and a few t-shirts, I figured I was either sitting in the hospital, and then leaving with no desire to impress anyone! Make sure you pack a hair tie for yourself and any "personal" items like hair brush, tooth brush. You really only need a small bag. Hope everything goes well and the baby is healthy! Good luck!
