hospital stay

What are some suggestions you ladies have on things to take to occupy your time in the hospital? Its been a while since I've had to stay in the hospital (back in 2007) so I'm trying to find some suggestions for things to do cuz I know I won't be sleeping the entire time my little man is

We packed a portable dvd player, nintendo ds, books, pack of cards, but we never used any of it. Seemed like those first couple of days we either had visitors, the baby was awake, I was pumping to build milk supply or we were going for little walks to get everything moving after csection.

I am having a c section as well. I'm thinking I may just pack a book or something small like that because I don't really remember having time to spend doing much where I was occupied when my daughter was born

I packed a book and a 3DS but never got time to use them between my daugter being awake, visitors, walks and the nurses checking on us, I barely had time to pump
