Packing cloth for the hospital

I am packing the bag for the baby for the hospital and I'm worried I am forgetting something that I'll need. It's been over a year since my kids were in diapers and we live almost 2 hours away so having dh run home and grab something we forgot isn't an option. So here's what I have packed, am I missing something?

For actual diapers I have
4 fitteds
11 GMD orange edge

1 PUL newborn cover
1 wool newborn wrap

4 diaper pins
5 cloth wipes (i'm not opposed to using disposable if we do run out and I'm sure the hospital will have washcloths too)
spray bottle with wipe solution

Is there anything else I should pack? Diaper rash cream I figured I wouldn't need that early but do you pack it just in case?

I agree with more covers. Also, I gave birth in a private hospital and they had paper wipes which my DD did not like. I felt bad about asking for tons of washclothes...just something to consider. You may want to take your own disposable wipes as a backup.

I would probably add a few more diapers and another 2 covers. I took about 25 fitteds and a couple of wool wraps.
