    I have started my list as well, not sure when I am going to go buy everything, but I do know that when I do buy everything I will pack the next day. I know I still have some time to go but I hate to wait until the last minute like my boyfriend does.......

    I think I'm bad because I have Airyonna's bag packed and ready to go..lol

    In her bag I have

    Her going home dress, sweater and shoes
    2 dummies (the hospital will provide me 2 more as part of a gift basket)
    Her going home blanket
    3 receiving blankets
    3 gowns
    3 outfits
    6 onesies
    socks
    4 hats
    Burp cloths

    I don't have to pack wipes or nappies because they will provide those as well. They also give us any bottles or formula if baby needs any.

    For myself I will pack

    Panties..Hospital will provide 3 pairs but I may want my own
    2 pairs of jammies
    socks
    robe
    slippers
    lip balm
    my makeup bag
    breast pads
    2 nursing bra's
    body wash
    toothpaste & tooth brush
    Shampoo & conditioner
    Hairspray
    comb
    my flat iron
    My going home outfit
    Camera & video camera
    baby book to get her foot prints in
    I don't have to pack pads because the hospital will give me all that I need and a pack to go home with.

    I think this is everything I may need but I may add to it after time goes on..lol

    so glad i am not the only one, technically i have 2 bags one to take in for delivery and stay and a bag that my hubby will bring on day with going home outfits for both baby and i and car seat etc he can tale my other bag home the day before and just leave us with clean pjs and 2 babygrows and vests and he can then put that in wash and unpack to save so much to be done when i get home. i find you need more stuff going home than coming in!!!! and just a though i also have a second handbag, phone charger, camera, some money for the shop (mags, sweets and juice) lip balm make up etc so i am not taking in my usual one with everthing you dont need ha ha!!! ah the joys
