For me: PJs, nursing bra, dressing gown, big pants (c section!), maternity pads, lanisoh nipple cream, snacks, phone and charger, cash, glasses, maternity top and stretchy trousers.

For baby: 3 onesies, cardigan, hat, soft carrier, fleece blanket, swaddling blanket, muslins, nappies and wipes.

I've got an additional bag with extra pads, baby clothes, towel and toiletries for my husband to bring in if I have to stay in longer than expected. But its likely to only be 36hrs if all goes well.

YouTube has great videos on what to bring.

This is my second baby. Some hospitals give alot like nipple cream and shirts for baby's to were since the doctors don't anything really touching the babies belly button until it falls off on its own. But pack more for you I had alot on my first time I didn't use. I would say mostly and outfit for you when you leave and outfit just in case socks and slippers. And outfit for the baby to take pictures in if they offer that and there take home outfit. Hope that helps

For myself: 2 yoga pants, 2 big shirts, going home outfit,  one pair of socks, phone, travel size shampoo/conditionee, house slippers, nursing pads
For baby:  3 shirts, baby socks, blankets, going home outfit  . I would not suggest bringing diapers/ wipes, hospital provide them so save yours.

With my little girl I packed mainly for her & forgot about me. I took two nighties & a dressing gown! No where near enough. You'll probably go through more changes of clothes than bub. Don't forget huge comfy Bridget Jones style undies & a sports water bottle with some tea tree oil, helps after bub is born. Squirt while you pee to dilute the wee, trust me on this! Wish I'd spent more money on good quality maternity pads with wings. The hospital surf boards are useless. Hooe this helps x
