for my first i was only in hosp for 3 nights and i over packed.
i havent packed yet but will get a list going soon so if i go early DH can grab things for me if anything is forgotten.
This is most likley what i'll pack this time:
Toiletries - hairbrush/comb, foundation, soap, moisturiser, deoderant, shampoo and conditioner, bobby pins and hair ties, Maternity pad's x 2 pks.
Nice comfy long pj's as i get cold in hosp even during summer.
slippers or thongs
2 x feeding singlets or button up shirts
2 x day outfits (last time i stayed in pj's a fair bit)
I wouldnt bother with bra's
Lots of big black undies! i'm bringing a whole new pack of 10
a pair of socks
Lollies and snacks, drink bottle.
phone and charger, camera and charger
1 pack Wipes
Cotton buds, cotton wool, flannel, shampoo, comb.
4 x onesies
4 x singlets
4 x long sleve onesies to go under onesies for extra layer
2 x small hats
Im at a public hospital and they supply nappies, baby wraps, a dressing gown and maternity pads but last time i found they didnt supply enough maternity pads.

I haven't packed yet, but reading some of the lists in magazines, books etc, the one that stood out is loose change (coin). Used for chip or drink machines, parking meters for family and friends if they forget their change.
I needed change when I went to visit a friend and her husband had a bag of coiins for parking and met me out the front. Very handy.

Dont forget soft loo paper, a massive blessing after stitches were needed after having bubs! Hospital paper is quite rough. Even tho you are having c section everything down there is so sensitive!
