Your list sounds just perfect for that long. Don't forget possible Camera/charger/batteries

Oh yeah, that has slipped my mind. I need to charge the battery to it.

Meh, I never wore any of my own pajamas/socks due to heavy bleeding...the first time around I ruined a couple pairs of pajamas. I also used the hospitals mesh undies and pads. The travel-sized toiletries are good though...don't forget toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, etc. And a brush! That was the one thing I forgot, and after trying to brush my hair with one of those little black combs, I made DH run to Walgreens.



Going home outfit for baby, camera/batteries, stretchy headband, hair ties.

Quoting Caimma:" nursing pads."


Probably not - the leaking doesn't really start until after your milk comes in, which most likely won't happen until she's home.



But a nursing bra if you plan to nurse is a good idea - they have pretty cheap/comfortable ones at Wal-Mart.
