We were instructed to pack two bags - one for labor and one for recovery. Makes sense cause I don't want Ryan digging around in my clothes bag to find a tennis ball or chapstick. But I really have no idea what I need to pack.
Here's what I have so far for my recovery bag:
- 2 nursing tank tops
- 1 pair loose yoga capris
- 1 pair loose lounge pants (full length)
- 1 thermal shirt from Old Navy
- 1 bath robe
- Nursing pads
- HUGE maxi pads with wings (though I really just want the diaper kind you get at the hospital)
- Toiletries (deodorant, shower stuff, new toothbrush, etc)
What else do I need? Did anyone really just wear the hospital gown the whole time? Should I get one of these? Heeeeeeeeelp meeeee.
And in my labor/delivery bag? Um... tennis ball, camera, and Flip Video? What else do I need? Experienced moms - what did you bring?
