Meg vs. The Baby: Hospital Packing List 1.0

So I realized that today's goal of entirely packing my hospital bag was unreasonable. For some reason I thought that, this being the third time and all, it would be easy to throw my bag together. I neglected to take into account mommy brain, and the fact that, by the time labor and childbirth were done, my hospital bag did not make it into the long-term memory part of my brain. So I pinned a few lists on Pinterest, took what I had already, and tried to remember what I wished I had and hadn't brought with me before. I always think it's dumb to drag a bunch of unnecessary things to the hospital, but then I can always think of tons of things that I might like to have with me. Anyhow, here is my list so far:

Okay, what did I forget? I know I will think of a few more things. The pump & bottle are just in case this little guy has a cleft (they run in our family, so I try to be prepared, even though the ultrasound looks good and we don't think he has one). Once I finalize my list, maybe I'll explain a little more what I pack for anyone who is looking for a first-timer list.

  1. I'm not a first-timer but I'd still like some explanations : )
