Anything that you use in a shower. I had travel size shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, mini loofa, and a razor for my legs. ;x i shave them every day.
Pads- the hospital ones are crazy and if you have a preference, bring them.
Snacks- I'm a late snacker so I needed something for the middle of the night.
Clothes youre comfortable in.
Lotion
Camera
Notebook and pen- marking down feedings, diapers, reminders of who brought you/LO presents to send thank you cards to, write down information, etc.
