The list I was given was:
Baby blankets
Outfit for mommy and baby
Receiving blankets
Toothpaste and toothbrush
Ur soaps
Phone charger
Activities for daddy I have a sketch pad in mine
Baby book if you have one
That's all I can remember

With my first I over packed, but this is my third and I feel like a pro. This is what you're gonna need: go to the drug store and go to the travel size section to get your toiletries, because you're only gonna be there two days tops. Two night gowns. Money. Two pairs of socks. Going home out fit for you and baby. Oh don't forget your chargers! Hope this helps  ;-)

Don't forget glasses or contacts stuff if you need it. I am also planning on bringing my own pillow bc it is a comfort thing for me. I would say if you have a breast pump to bring that bc with my son it helped to pump a bit to stimulate milk supply. Chapstick, I am bringing some makeup this time so I don't look so awful in the pictures my relatives decide to post on fb!
