I feel like a first time mom again just because its been so long! (5yrs)



how many bags are you bringing? i feel like a bag for me and one for baby is too much. should i just shove it all in one? im bringing my laptop bag with me also (hubby can only be with me for LOs birth and for a little while after with dd cause she has school the next day. i wont see them again until its time for me to go home, we live a little over an hr away from the hospital, so we'll be skyping) i dont want to bring too much.
oh and for those who brough their boppy pillows was it useful or did it just sit there? i never brought mine the first time but kinda wish i wouldve

I have stuff all in one bag. But I don't live an hour away. If I forget something I can have someone bring it.
I will have my laptop in it's own bag, and camera in it's own bag.
Otherwise I have mine and babies stuff shoved into one duffel bag.
I also love having my boppy and my pillow from my bed for sleeping for me.

I brought my boppy pillow and used it right away. I also used it for myself. I brought a suitcase from home. I used everything I brought to the hospital, and there was a lot of stuff. It was all needed. I wish I would have brought some pillows and blankets though. You should consider doing so!



Don't forget chapstick. And bring a cooler with food and drinks.
