    Great site, Linds! I would add chapstick, an extra robe (you will live in your robes!), and notebook or somewhere to write down the names of visitors and gifts. Congrats again to you and Tyler. Can’t wait to hear the news of Baby K’s arrival!

    Your nightgowns do look cozy, and your going home outfit chic, but I recommend buying a nursing gown and/or top and/or dress.

    They told me lolly pops or something like that to keep mouth wet. Also make sure you have chargers to alll electronics (friend forgot her phone charger and extra batterys) lotion and shower items. eye covers sometimes they would turn off the lights. little jewelery box for jewelery that you cant keep out the whole hospital stay.(nose rings and tounge ring.) HEADPHONES if you are bringing a laptop. sometimes you share a room with another mother and you might want to watch a movie in peace.
