    Oh yes! And toiletries! Shampoo, conditioner, contact solution, tooth brush, tooth paste, face wash, lotion, body wash, razor. I don't like the hospital stuff and after doing all that work of pushing and sweating, I wanted to at least smell like a queen even if I didn't look it!

    Those disposable undies the hospital provide are ick!! So bring your own maternity pads for the bleeding (which could last for 1-2 weeks) and black undies were a blessing (buy the one size larger to make room for the big pads!). Also, I disliked wearing hospital gowns so had a range of looser fitting pants, tops and dressing gown (or a nice large cardigan) that could mix for both pyjamas and day time clothes. They provi most things for the bubs but ring and check. I did take clothes for the bub for our stay as well, as I found the baby gowns hard to swaddle the baby in. I did take my own swaddles as well. Then the other basic stuff, toiletries, phone charger. Oh and I did take a book! Otherwise, other people's suggestions very good as well!

    They should provide you with nipple cream if you're breastfeeding, just ask. Also, I wouldn't have done this if my sister hadn't told me to, but if you're planning on pumping when you go back to work or whatever, ask them to bring you a breast pump to show you how to use it and they'll give you your own set of pump parts you get to keep, a little tube of nipple cream, and a bag for sterilizing the parts in the microwave. I had bought my own set of replacement parts and was able to return them and get my money back. Let insurance pay for it!

    One thing I forgot to put on my list when I commented before is a nursing bra, one without wires. If you're breastfeeding, you will definitely want and need that!

    For me, the most comfortable thing was using depends right after birth... I know it sounds odd, but those hospital pads, shift and are bulky... Plus I could just throw the depends away, not worrying about underware...Doing it again this time, works great that 48 hours or so right after child birth.

    Everyone has pretty much covered everything. If you have a baby book, you might want to take it for the footprint pictures.
