For Baby:
Socks
Hat
Mittens
Blanket(s)
Outfits
(I always take 3 diffrent outfits,including going home outfit)

For Yourself:
Slippers
Going home outfit
(underwears,bras,etc.)
Toiletries:toothbrush,toothpaste,hairbrush,hair ties,shampoo,conditioner,soap,deoderant,extra absorbant pads..etc.
(makes it easier if you make everything travel size)
Makeup if you use any.

If your partner is also staying :
Extra Blanket
Change
Phone/Camera Charger
Carseat

**That's what i can think of so far. Maybe you can add on depending on your needs.

Ask the hospital you're delivering at what you need for spouse to sleep there. Mine provided my husband with blankets, pillows and a bed along with 3 meals a day for my 2 day recovery.

All we took to the delivery room (my hospital uses two rooms one to deliver and one for recovery)
Snacks for hubby
Something for hubby to do if I  napped or wanted him quiet
Pj's for me
Change of clothes for him

Phone charger/camera

For baby the first outfit he or she wears home. U need a few pair of booties/socks for the baby.. While y'all are in hospital. And a hat or 2 for the baby. Everything else is provided.
