There are a lot of great lists to reference online. Also if you you know what hospital you're delivering at you can call and see what they provide to help you narrow it down a bit. Personally I'm taking toiletries,  comfy outfit for me to go home in, a few outfits for baby. Camera, chargers.things of that nature bc the hospital I'm going to provides the essentials

When I had my son, I brought two outfits for me one to go home in and one just to sleep in the few days(I had the option to keep my hospital gown on or change) I brought shampoo conditioner soap and a wash clothes, and comfortable shoes. My hospital provided large pads and even gave me some to go home with. For my son I brought him something to go home in, and a blanket and a binky because I wanted him to use a binky, other then that the hospital provided everything else.

This is what I have packed:
Me: 2 outfits, t shirts, bra, socks, panties, pajamas, lotion, deodorant, mouthwash, toothbrush, toothpaste, Chapstick, soap, gum, Clorox wipes, nursing pads, and a shower cap. My hospital provides some of these items already but I want my own preference.

Baby: 2 outfits, onsies, rash cream, 2 sleepers, jacket, hats, mittens, burp cloth, and blankets.
They will provide diapers, wipes, a small blanket, formula,
I hope this helps.
Be sure to have car seat before discharge.
