Pajamas, slippers, towels and wash clothes, body wash, robe, extra money for real good after you are able to eat, the baby bag (that is a whole other list 🤣), phone charger and battery packs, comfy clothes when you leave, portable speaker for music.

An extra long phone charger, and if your phone has a battery you can take out it would have been nice to have a back up for all the phone calls and pictures. A pillow or two, a light soft blanket for yourself, soap, shampoo, your own toothpaste, baby book.

Sorry so long!: The best thing we brought was the laptop, hdmi cable, and Bluetooth speaker. We hooked the laptop to the hospital tv & I just watch Netflix the whole time. I had a 47hr labor and we had to stay two days after. It was a god send! Also I second the chapstick. I bought a gownies hospital gown from Baby be mine and loooved it. It was comfortable and still had easy access for the nurses. I also got a lot of compliments on it which is great when you can barely walk lol. I also recommend bringing your own pillow for comfort reasons. Our hospital only allotted two pillows per person. I also had two outfits one to go home in and one to wear in the hospital. I finally changed out of my gown after day 3 so it was nice to put some fresh clothes on. And I still had a different outfit for the next day! Also when ordering clothes plan on being a bit swollen. My legs were still pretty swollen on day 4 and I could barely fit into my sweats that I bought to go home in lol

Boopy nursing pillow, extra pj’s for you (breastfeeding friendly) soft nursing bras or bralettes (I preferred the second stretchy and soft) Onecies that are open in the bottom where your baby’s legs are easily accessible. Babies get a lowjack at the hospital and putting any other type of pants one legged onecies it’s a pint over those big foot collars. Baby hat 🥰 they get one right after being born to help shape their head and the hospital ones are boring lol Slippers a robe for you a comfy outfit for you to go back home in. Granny panties too I liked the shorts kind. Quick make up cause you will want to look your best on all your baby visitor pics.
