What did you bring to the hospital for the baby ? I have pj outfits two different sizes, hats, mittens, onsies, sock and blankets. Should I bring a pack of wipes ? And since I plan to breastfeed should I bring a tube of breast cream sorry I don't know what its called. What did you bring ?

I took two outfits, one NB and one 0-3 just in case. you don't need the wipes, they'll provide those as well as the diapers. they'll also have blankets. I tried breast feeding and ended up having my nipples cracked...I didn't take any lanolin cream with me, but they provided me with some. :)

Oh yeah I have shampoo, conditioner, body wash, tooth brush, toothpaste, hair scrunchies, lotion, q tips. Comfy clothes, socks, slippers. I also bought sports bras I want to wear it during birth I don't really want my b**bs all over the place I rather wear just that then a robe and be comfortable. I just was unsure of what I should for sure bring for the baby.

Yeah I am going to buy a nursing pillow this weekend. I would of never though to actually bring it to the hospital until some one told me to bring it there. I am also bringing my body pillow to sleep with and another pillow of mine. Last time I went there to be monitored there pillows sucked.

A nursing bra, I loved my moo-moo's but I felt so naked underneath I had to wear my bra lol A nursing pillow if you want, I didn't find it comfortable except to sleep with ;) Brush, toothbrush/paste, shampoo/conditioner, pony tail, Lanisoh cream definitely and I'm sure I'm forgetting something lol

What I took and used .. two different things. I brought my computer .. didn't use it... I brought undies....didn't use it.... I did use my pjs towards the end of my stay bc the robes were nottt cute. My slippers and socks were used. I brought nipple creme but the hospital gave me some as well as breast pads. Cell charger a must. My boppy I brought a few outfits some nurses keep them in it others will take em out and put them in the stupid hospital outfits but they bring them back with the outfit -_- stupid. That's its legit

Yay your the second person to say they gave you nipple cream. Because I was debating on bringing some or not its fricken $10 bucks. But I want to be comfortable. Yeah I would of never though of bringing the boppy to the hospital but now I have seen a few people say they bring it so I plan to bring it. I have socks and slippers packed and loose tank tops & pj bottoms to hang out in while in there I am not a fan of the robes.
