I am scheduled to be at the hospital at 6am for induction.. Im going back over my bags tonight and in the morning, however I am sure ill forget something, or it will just skip my mind. SO ... what are some must haves to go in my bag
I wish I would have had a list, I brought 3 suitcases. My family was ready to kill me.
Your own PJ's, nursing pads, lanolin, toiletries, outfits for baby, receiving blankets, snacks, camera, Boppy.
These are the things I used!

Anything that you use in a shower. I had travel size shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, mini loofa, and a razor for my legs. ;x i shave them every day.
Pads- the hospital ones are crazy and if you have a preference, bring them.
Snacks- I'm a late snacker so I needed something for the middle of the night.
Clothes youre comfortable in.
Notebook and pen- marking down feedings, diapers, reminders of who brought you/LO presents to send thank you cards to, write down information, etc.
Your own pillow if those make you feel more comfortable
A house/bath robe
Coming home outfit for you
Most things will be provided for the baby, but:
