Blankets for swaddling and a warm one for going home

Shampoo and body wash? We also took a few snacks, but we knew I would be there for a few days since I was having a c-section.

Razor? You plan to shave while there?



Chapstick was a must have. Hair ties, toiletries.



I brought my own pads because I hated the hospital ones

Yeah I was not that enthused about shaving right after delivery before, but I do like to do my legs every other day or so, I will be bringing one just in case I feel like it
