Re: Whats in the "bag"

I actually just did this today - my bag is not well packed but I am hoping to not need it.

I threw in two shirts for me, 2 underwear, a comfy bra for nursing, 2 socks, a pair of comfy pants, a shirt, boxers & pair of pants for dp, toothpaste that we had unopened & two new toothbrushes we had already, a spare deodorant, 2 sleepers for baby, an undershirt,a small wetbag, 2 kl0's a bummis nb cover and a duo cover.

Re: Whats in the "bag"

Besides all the stuff Kathy listed, I have on my list flip flops, contacts/glasses, exercise ball, boppy pillow (to keep in the car until after the birth), nursing tanks and button up shirts. Snacks for me.

Last time I didn't use my robe at all, not sure if I want to bring it again, it takes up a lot of space.

Also, a bag for DD b/c she's going to stay w/ MIL for a day or so. Shouldn't be too much since she already has some things there where she stays overnight.

ETA: if you don't bring the baby book, at least take paper and pen to record visitors/gifts if you're into that sort of thing.
