What to Pack for the Hospital

I've seen so many 'what to pack' lists and I think most of them suck cause they have you over packing. Trust me, you're not going to want to spend one ounce of time un-packing and doing any laundry when you get home with your little bundle of joy. You could go to the hospital with nothing packed and be totally fine. Less is more! Believe me!

So here is my slim packing list;

For mom -
- Going home outfit. Between bleeding, breast feeding and doctors checking my uterus and other parts; no outfit from home was going to cut it, for the exception of a plain old hospital gown.
-Slipper socks and a bathrobe were handy for getting out of bed for a stroll.
- Extra hair elastic
- A little make-up (if you really want)
- Phone Charger
- Camera
- Smart Phone - I see a lot of items on lists that a smart phone can easily take place off. You don't need your laptop, iPad, paper, pen, pictures or radio. These days ALL of this stuff can easily be done on your phone. 

For Dad -
- One outfit
- PJs
- Slippers
- Change for vending machine

For Baby 
- Going home outfit
- Car Seat

Toiletries - soap, shampoo, condition, tooth brushes, toothpaste and whatever products you use daily.

Happy Packing!
