I'm only bringing the basics. If you have a natural birth your only there for 2 days the most. So I have a pair of pjs to where while I'm there and then clothes to wear going home. Bra and some underwear that I don't mind getting ruined. Flip flops for shower or walking around and then breast pads and regular heavy duty pads incase hospital doesn't provide any. Then your toiletries (tooth brush toothpaste hair brush elastics etc)

All I have to throw in is my phone charger and my wallet. You need your ID for the birth certificate and it would be nice to have extra cash incase you want something from a vending machine or cafeteria.

I'm only going straight home after the hospital and they provide everything for the baby while I'm there so I'm just throwing in a few outfits to take him home in. You want a few incase your baby spits up while waiting to be discharged.
