Was there anything different you packed in your hospital bag for twins?I bought two Boppy's but do you really think i should take both to the hospital?I know i defiantly want to take one since i'm having a c-section.Also c-section mama's were you able to wear your own pajamas or were the hospital gowns more comfy?

Did you get the EZ2Nurse pillow?? If not, GET IT! No way you will use 2 boppys. The nursing pillow is great- even if you will be bottle feeding. I did bring it to the hospital, but I didn't use it. No wait, I think I did use it once. It would be helpful so the LC can help you position them right.

Ditto to getting the EZ 2 nurse pillow - that thing is amazing!!! I brought ours as well as my pump to get my milk in faster. I think I wore the hospital gown for the day of c/s and then wore my own pj (nursing tank & loose capri sweats)the next day. You definitely don't want anything tight and something for easy access to your incision as they check it all the time. Other than that we really didn't bring anything different than with Danika.

I would just take one Boppy to the hospital. I have two at home, and I used them a lot, but it's a lot to take to the hospital.

Honestly, I barely used anything in my hospital bag. I wore hospital clothes, because I didn't want to ruin mine, and that worked out fine. The twin nursing pillow (not boppys) might be something good to bring so you can practice tandem nursing, but I only had one twin in the room with me (other in NICU), so it was not necessary.

I do have a pump (didn't bring it), but I ended up using a hospital pump to get my milk going (definitely talk with a lactation consultant if you will be bfing). I was also able to get my insurance to pay for the hospital grade pump rental, so as of yet, I haven't used my own pump.
