Re: s/o hospital bag packing list .. anyone have one ?? what did you pack ??

Wow, you really ARE nesting pretyt hard huh??? Well you have a little more time than me so I guess that gives me excuse to nest too. YAY! I've been wanting to wash all the clothing and diapers for a while now. Okay so bag packing. I don't hav ea comprehensive list but here's a few suggestions to start us off:

lip balm
slippers
going home outfit for mom
going home outfit for baby
diapers for baby- how many???
big wetbag
mama cloth- how many???
car seat
blanket for baby
baby's jacket and hat
nursing pads- how many???
camera/batteries(film if not digital)
cell p hone or change for pay phone and list of relatives to call
labor tools(tennis balls, birth ball, board games, cards, etc)
music for labor
pacifiers


Like I said, this isn't a comprehensive list but it's a start at least. I'm beginning to think about this for myself.

I always take a 'baby book' and birth announcements/envelopes (and my Rolodex) to fill in after the baby is born and I'm bored.
Did anyone say robe?
And I also take luxuriously nice toiletries (you know... nice shower stuff and lotion, etc...), even a nice new toothbrush, to pamper myself with after the birth!

I have csections so I don't include any labor stuff but here is my list (I've been through it 3 times so I should remember everything even though I'm not due till April)

For Baby:
Mittens for hands
socks for feet
2 coming home outfits (just in case ds#1 peed all over the only one I brought!)
carseat
blanket
boppy
baby book

For momma:
Hairbrush
Shampoo/soap/deodorant
comfy (usually maternity) outfit to wear home
socks (usually just for going home as hospital gives nice comfy slippers)
nursing pads
books to read when I can't sleep
lansolin (my hospital will give me some if I ask but you might want to bring your own)
comfy momma pad to wear home
ds and games - (hey I get bored a lot)
camera

I think thats it but I usually forget something depending on when I pack (last 2 times it has been unexpectedly going into labor) and have to have dh bring it back when he brings the boys to see me!

Re: s/o hospital bag packing list .. anyone have one ?? what did you pack ??

Well...I haven't had a baby, BUT, I do have this list I printed out:

This is a list to pick and choose from basically a "what could I POSSIBLY want with me..."

Your birth plan, Insurance card & any hospital papers, pediatrician's info, calling card if you can't use your cell phone, list of phone numbers

warm cozy socks (one pair to toss after labor if needed), lip balm, shirt for labor & delivery, snacks, suckers (preferably sour), hair ties, brush, camera, pillow from home, pen & notebook, ipod or music, books, magazines, gameboy, massage lotion/oils, your nice squishy toilet paper from home, bathrobe, slippers, your toiletries, glasses if you a contact wearer, good luck or feel good items

change of clothes for DH, pillow, blanket for sleeping in the uncomfy hosp. chair, swim suit (to help you shower/water birth), watch with a second hand, mints gum

sleeping mask, fresh nightgown (nursing if you will), lots of granny panties, heavy flow pads if you will want your own, nursing bra, toiletries from home, snacks, going home outfit (5-6 months pregnant is a good size to plan on), flat shoes, slip ons if possible, lanolin creams, robe, slippers, baby book, boppy, demoplast, spare nightgowns/pjs, bendy straws if hosp. doesn't have them

going home outfit in various sizes, diapers, hats or caps from home, recieving blanket or special blankets for pictures, socks, booties, sleepers, car seats, blankets to roll up beside baby in carseat, picture outfit, sensitive wipes or cloth, mittens, nail clippers, feeding supplies

thank you cards, birth announcements, hand held fan, make up, dark colored towels from home, cigars for celebrating, champagne, breastfeeding book

Siblings:
paper, crayons, coloring books, snacks, their own camera, gifts for the baby, gifts from the baby

Tips:
bring batteries & film, let the nurse know you have the baby book and they will stamp the hands/feet for you, know if your hosp. charges for parking, may want to pack 2 bags (essentials/extras), labor shirts should be short sleeved

What not to bring:
jewelry (unless its a religious symbol)
lots of $$, credit cards, valuables,
work

Anyway--its not my list, I printed it off the net about a year ago
