Pregnancy Diaries ~ Baby Bag

So one of the things I need to get ready is the diaper bag for the baby. It has been 13 years since I have done this. So I asked a couple of friends who recently had babies to tell me what do they pack, or what did they pack their baby bag?

Here were the suggestions I received, and what I have packed in my baby's bag:

1) Baby wipes-I did not remember that hospitals only use wet towels to wipe the babies butty.

2) Baby Going Home Outfit-Not sure if it will be cold or not when we come out because our weather is crazy here, so I packed 2. I packed a onesie with sleeves. A cute little top with pant bottoms. I also packed socks, mittens, and a hat. Another thing I packed was a sweater, one with a hoodie and one without.

3) Baby blanket-I am packing a baby blanket to cover her car seat with when leaving the hospital, or cover.

4) Car Seat-Can't leave home without it.

So bare necessities, I understand the hospital gives you diapers, and anything else you need for the baby. So no extra stuff for me...

Am I missing something?

Don't forget about feeding supplies. I guess if you are nursing you are set. Also don't forget to pack stuff for you. Is that another post? Patricia
