Packing my bag

I have been working on packing my bag since last week.  I just felt the need to get it in order.  So I started working on it.

Here is what I have so far:

1 pair nursing jammies
4 pairs socks
2 going home outfits for baby (2 different sizes...not sure which one we will need)
1 deck of cards
1 outfit for me to come home in
nursing pads
nursing bra (1 sleep, 1 regular)
1 lightweight robe

Other things we will throw in at the last minute are:

bag of tolieties (all set on the counter so I can just drop them in the baggie I have for them)
phone charger
iPod charger
Nook charger
camera battery charger
my purse and all of its contents

Am I forgetting anything???  I can't remember what I really needed and what I didn't.  The electronic stuff is mostly for Dan so he won't be bored at the hospital while I am in  :)

So what do you think, did I miss anything?

  1. Snacks - for you and yours - sometimes hospitals don't get your meals to you fast enough in the middle of the night.

    lolly pops --

    list of phone numbers of people you are going to call with your great news!

    Address book, thank you cards and/or birth announcements - to get a jump on mailing.

    a couple of magazines - cards get boring

    a hand mirror - to do a quick check before visitors come in.

    Lotion - it is very dry in the hospy

    Snuggly blankie --

    That's all I can think of now.

  2. I brought mittens for the baby because our hospital did not have them and they scratched their face otherwise.
    baby book for footprints and birth info.

  3. Oh my goodness! I almost forgot about bringing something for the footprints! Thank you! I have always remembered that for the other kids. Now off to go dig thru my scrapbooking stuff so I can find what I want her little feeties on. :)

  4. As little as possible! I just bring a camera, baby book, toiletries and clothes. My labors are super fast and afterwards I like to just sit and hold baby. :)

  5. I promised myself that I wouldn't forget the camera this I have the camera AND an extra battery in my purse (which will be with me at al times) so we won't leave it in the diaper bag Corbin's first pics are all on our cell phones because we didn't have a camera with us yet!
