Quoting Miranda Chandler-Crowell:" i know it sounds like alot .. but its actually not. and being that my hospital WILL NOT give me a list ... [snip!] ... even told me the what to do if i go into labour. so if my water were to break right now, id just be sitting here, clueless."
Im currently 33 weeks pregnant so I havent delivered yet BUT i graduated nursing school and know everything about the maternity floor at the hospital here...
I agree with the people that say dont bring diapers and wipes because for a fact they DO provide them. the wipes are just 4x4s which is a soft material u just put warm water on so thats up to u. i have no problem with the 4x4s.
ALSO they DO give u pads for bleeding but if ur like me its best to bring ur own because they are cheap and they dont have wings. i have to have pads with wings or they move everywhere.
They are also going to make sure you have a bowel movement BEFORE you leave..( alot of mothers get constipated after birth) so if you dont want to be drinking MOM (a thick milky yucky medication) or prune juice you may want to bring some fruit, dried fruit, or prunes to snack on. something like that. thats just my opinion thats what i plan on doing. Here are some more things to think about:
sandals( for the shower)
slippers (i dont like the using ONLY grip socks in my bed after i walked on that nasty floor)
outfit for babys hospital picture and go home baby outfit
pillow (you may be more comfortable with ur own)
