    What's in YOUR bag???

    Hi Ladies,

    I thought this would be a good thread to start for all of us. Let's get a good list going about what to pack in your bag to take to the hospital. I know last time, we didn't do very well.....but we packed in a hurry cuz my water broke at 37 weeks.

    I'm not going to include everything in my list....just a few items to get the list going.

    Nursing Bra
    Nursing Shirt
    super soft sockies
    robe
    hair dryer
    makeup

    Who's next?

    Thanks for this girls, its a huge help. I had started to think about this. The only other things I can think of is disposible knickers and my fabulous new pillow for breastfeeding. Its so soft and comfy. I just love it. It goes everywhere with me.

    Anything to help with labor - tennis balls, lotion, etc...
    snacks for dh
    swim suit for dh (so he can help out in the shower)
    Favourite pillow
    Hard candy

    Our hospital requires us to have a pre-admint appointment with a nurse to go over everthing and they give us a binder that we bring to the hospital when I'm in labor. I was happy to see that they included a packing list.
