Hospital?? Mommy To Be! #2 Due January 10; 1 child; West Virginia 68 posts11th Dec '12
What did you Momma's take to the hospital the second time that you wished you would have taken the first time? I'm going to start getting things ready to put in mine and So bags. Also the Diaper bag as well.

This is a great question! Sorry I can't help, but I' am just as curious about this as you are so I wanted to get on the thread :wink:

This time I'm bringing something to do (lap top and books) and food! I was so fricken hungry last time.

I took a lot less stuff the second time around. The only thing you really need for the baby is an outfit to take them home in, a carseat, and a set of clothes for you. Everything else the hospital provides (diapers, formula, even breast pumps if you need one, storage containers for breastmilk..etc..etc..) You might want to bring wipes because they only have those dry ones. Meconium is a real pain in the @$$ to get off without wet wipes.

I was in recovery for 3 days. Bring a few outfits for the baby (things get messy). Bring something to keep your feet warm and a few snacks in case you get hungry between meals. Bring maternity sweats or jeans, cause it'll be awhile before you are back down to pre-baby weight.
