Great Way to Pack for Labor @Hospital
What I heard  |   Link

LaborKit contains many of the suggested items for packing in your suitcase for the hospital. They come in various price points and list the items.

I reviewed them and was quite impressed on what was included. I know for sure some hospitals already provide many of the items but not of the same quality. So check over the list and here's what I put on my checklist.(Download file)

Some changes to the list. Since I had a c-section I ended up at the hospital for 4 days. I stayed in the hospital gown since I had many things attached to me and it was easier to feed not having to deal with night gown etc. I ended up not using the boppy since I was propped up with many pillows to feed. We kept B in the kimono shirts the hospital had and used the diapers they had in the bassinet. The things that came in handy were the following: DVDs during recovery, magazines to keep me from getting bored after I ran out of DVDs, and take-out food. I hated the food at the hospital and was craving for all the stuff I couldn't have while pregnant. J forgot to bring a shaver so was quite scruffy after a few days. He ended up going home to freshen up. Also since we were washing our hands often, having some nice lotion would have been nice.
