This is what I have in my diaper bag...
Butt cream
9 diapers
2 receiving blankets
2 burp cloths
2 wash cloths (my mom said I needed this... lol)
2 garbage bags for soild clothes.
Wipes
2 pairs of socks
2 outfits
2 binkies
Binky wipes
Hat
jacket
And a bib and toy



I have no clue why I have some of the stuff in there... but it seems the tight thing to do. Lol.



How useful are bibs at this age? My mom said they are good for spit/spit up?



I will be adding, tylenol for both me and baby. Lotion. Stomach/gas relief for both of us. Baby orjel and baby powder.



I think I have everything, but I just wanna be sure, I hate not being prepared for EVERYTHING!



Thanks!!

Bibs aren't useful really if you have burp cloths but they couldn't hurt either.



Most of this actually you don't need unless you mean hospital bag? In my diaper bag, I carry a couple changes of clothes for baby, diapers, wipes, changing blanket.

Oh gotcha. Probably as time goes on, you will ditch it a little at a time.

Well not so much for hospital but anywhere else. You bub will finish drinking and your milk will still be squirting out so I used the towel to hold it over until I got the breast pad back on.



If its your hospital bag i would have enough clothes for each day u will be there plus some more. Plus singlets socks etc.



It's nice to have your baby in its own clothes.

I'm in Australia so I guess it's different. Once they had a bath we had her in her own clothes.



Was LO premie? Why did they have to check vitals all the time?

For the entire time in hospital? They only did that for LO or the first night. And blood sugar every three hours for a week. If they did that for the entire time I was in hospital it would have been highly annoying. No wonder you didn't put him in his own clothes.
