Baby's hospital bag SillyBek Due June 23 (boy); 17 kids; Utah 307 posts

What did y'all pack in baby's bag? I know the hospital will have diapers and wipes but what else should I have in the diaper bag. Should I bring my breast pump? I will be nursing and would rather not introduce bottles for the first few months but a friend mentioned that I'd need to pump if for some reason I can't breastfeed.

clothes, baby book and any kind of cute little things you'd want to decorate their bed with, like blankets. the hospital I go too provides everything else, even for breastfeeding mamas.

For baby I'm bringing a car seat, a blanket, a pair of socks, a footed onsie, a regular onsie, soothers and that's it. The hospital I go to provides diapers, wipes, blankets, caps and soothers but I always bring those anyways.

A onesie? With the feet enclosed...



And a singlet goes underneath. Like a tank top?



You probably won't need that much. We were in for 8 nights and I hear hospitals over there supply clothes while in hospital?
