(And obviously, the car seat and a diaper bag to take the hospital goodies home in. )

Medicine (I only take liquid and it takes forever for the nurses to get it from the hospital pharmacy. Last time they had to crush pills and mix it in pudding - ick!)
Diapers (I don't want them putting Pampers on my baby since my boys have sensitive skin)
Our hospital provides robes, nursing gowns, gripper/slipper socks, and snacks/juice. They also provide blankets, sleep sacks, undershirts, hats, wipes, diapers, etc. for the baby. They list on the registration sheet to bring a lot of stuff you really don't need. This will be baby number three in less than 4 years at the same hospital, so I think I've got it down.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

Extra warm socks( hospital socks leave my feet cold)
My own throw blanket ( it's always too cold for me without it)
My own pillow ( much better than the cheap flat ones they have)
Pain relieving spray ( the best thing ever to spray on your girl parts!!)
Tucks or some kind of wet toiletry wipe ( reg tp hurts like sand paper)
Change for vending late night snack run
Snacks for hubby like beef jerky and rock star or star bucks drinks
Big pj pants or sweats to wear home
Few extra granny panties ( I bleed like a stuck pig and nothing feels more gross than wearing undies that have leaks on them)
Outfit for pictures
Swaddle or receiving to go home
Blanket to cover carrier with when going home
Our own choice of binky ( hospital gives out nuk binkies and we prefer the big green monster kind)
A cute sleeper or onesie for visitors
Cute hat for visitors
Our own formula( we use gentle ease and just in case hospital doesn't have it)
I brought books and baby books and laptops last time thinking I would use them and they sat in my bag. I sleep off and on the first day, eat, have visitors or baby bonding time. There never seemed like a good time for extras. For me anyway.
