LOL! I definitely snacked a lot in my 35 hours of labor and 4 nights at the darn hospital! I refused to eat their food. Call me picky but yuck! haha Even just lollipops or something for when your mouth gets dry and that sugar burst of energy can help when you are tired.

You won't need much. Socks or slippers, lip balm, phone, camera, and chargers. Toiletries, take home outfit for baby, and a change of clothes for you, and your support person. That's it. Oh, and hair ties/hair clips, and possible food or snacks for your SO.

Some undies you don't mind messing up, pjs or comfortable clothes if you don't want to wear hospital gown the whole time, something comfortable to wear home, slippers or no slip socks, deodorant, toothbrush toothpaste, brush, soap, shampoo (some hospitals supplies all these mine does). Then your baby's bag if your going to fix it a different one than yours most do. Chargers for your phone or camera.
