When packing a hospital bag, am I supposed to pack maternity clothes still? What all did you ladies who already have LOs pack? I'm not just asking about clothes.

Leaving the hospital you will want maternity or loose clothing. Your belly is still kinda big. Also bring comfy sweats or pjs for your stay after delivery.

You will prob still want your maternity pants/shorts or just anything loose. Button up pj top & a nursing bra is a must also for overnight stay if you plan to BF. Toiletries. Slippers/socks. Snacks for afterwards. Phone/charger/camera. Coming home outfit for baby, blanket, pacifier (if you want). That's all I took w/me.

Comfy clothes that you can easily nurse with (if you're planning on breastfeeding) a nightgown, 2 or 3 outfits of day clothes. All the usual toiletries. Going home outfit for you and LO. A hair tie. Flip flops for the shower. Comfy bras. I think that's pretty much all I used out of all the extra stuff I packed.

Pack something that fit you when you were about six months pregnant. Also I packed LO's going home outfit, receiving blankets, snacks, and clothes for my SO.

A simple loose dress (I think it was a maternity dress from Walmart or gap) worked perfect for me. Otherwise, phone, camera and charger. Snacks.

Night gown, undies, nursing bra, loose fitting gym pants, massage oil, snacks, diaper bag with clothes, music player, pillow from home, comfy socks with grips on the bottom or slippers, hoody that zippers because it gets chilly in the hospital.

I over packed. I stayed in the hospital gowns so I didn't get blood on my clothes. I didn't even wear the underwear I had I wore the mesh panties until the day I got discharged. I would just pack a going home outfit and yes maternity clothes. A tooth brush tooth paste, hair brush, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, make up if you'll even feel like putting it on, hair ties, extra pads(even though the hospital will provide them), phone charger, a tablet or some kind of entertaining device.

I would bring dresses because I didn't want anything around my waist especially if you have a c-section

I know this doesn't have to do with a hospital bag but what I have been doing since I'm so close to my due date I have also been making dinners and freezing them so when we get home all we have to do is throw them in the oven !! ☺️
