Chapstick and lotion. My skin was so dry every time I had a kid no matter the time of year. The hospitals either have the heat on or the ac. Not to mention the hormones made me itchy sometimes after delivery. And comfy slippers or warm socks. Less is more, the only reason I ever took a big bag was for the supplies the nurses insisted we take home. Diapers, wipes, pads for me, mesh underwear, ice pads, blue pee pads. I swear we went home with twice as much as we went in with during my last two deliveries.
Toilet paper! Hospital TP succckks
Yessss especially after you just pushed a baby out it is hell
NIPPLE CREAM!! (If you’re planning on breastfeeding) and nursing tank tops and a nursing pillow if you have one. those are the things that I wish I had brought.
One thing that was a holy grail for me not necessarily for you’re hospital bag because they do provide the hospital undies but for home always depends we’re a life saver. They’re super comfortable and you don’t have to worry about ruining underwear.
Bottled water, and your pump. The nurses give you this big cup, and say drink lots of water. However, you have ao much to think about that I easily forgot how much I had. The second time around I brought a cs of water, and just counted the empty bottles. The amount of stress relief that one act had made a big difference. Also, it is never to early to start pumping.
