Mom to 5 little angels in Texas and expecting another blessing in Summer 2012!!:
My own pretty hospital gown for after delivery
Depends disposable undergarments for after my water has broke
a soft comfy outfit to wear home
several pairs of socks, and a couple of pairs of slipper socks with grips on bottom.
Dermaplast spray for my bits
and we'll add the camera and charger, and cell phone chargers before we leave.
What's Dermaplast? This has been really helpful! I think it is good to note that you probably won't use a ton of stuff...and I totally agree about using the hospital stuff as much as you can. How could I forget about the netted underwear?!?! ha ha.
I think I might get some garbage bags and put them in the car in case of my water breaking. Last time I was induced and just never had a) a bag packed or b) my water breaking anywhere but the hospital.
I can understand that - my hospital even provides toiletries, but I take my own of those. I was more meaning Marylizah, who has to back EVERYTHING it sounds like. At my hospital, pretty much the only thing I HAVE to have is a carseat to take the baby home in. I could wear my own clothes home, and they'll let you take the blankets/t-shirts/diapers that are in your bassinet there, and they pretty much provide anything you would need while you are there. So it really makes packing pretty easy.
