I finished packing my hospital bag last night.
Comfy clothes for me, baby's bring home outfit, toiletries for me, undies... all that jazz.



WELL this time will hopefully be different and I will be able to BF. SO did you find is necessary to bring boobie pads while you were there?

I never needed them, but I'm sure the hospital would have some if needed. :)

No, because your milk likely won't be in by the time you leave, so you won't be leaking all over the place.

No, but I didn't get my milk until 2 days after I left the hospital and didn't even think about needing them. I would take some with you just in case.

I took them because I wanted to be safe. And glad that I did because my milk came in the next day.

Most people's milk isn't in by then. I started leaking in the hospital (I had a 4day stay) and they didn't have any. I had to use a pad as a breast pad,ugh. I would suggest bringing some just in case!

I took them but didn't need them. My milk came in Tuesday when we were discharged from the hospital.

Doesn't hurt to take some. I haven't really leaked at all. Only a handful of times so I don't even have breast pads. I Did have my coconut oil handy though lol!!!

I didn't bring nursing pads, but I DID bring lansinoh cream. In fact, start applying it now, it will help like you wouldn't believe!!

I started leaking around 16 weeks both times. Definitely bring pads just in case.
