You Don't Have to Bring the Whole House

I wish someone would have told me that you don’t need to pack that much for the hospital. They’ll provide diapers and blankets -- maybe even a diaper bag filled with starter goodies. An outfit for pictures and your chosen formula if you're not breastfeeding are probably all you really need. Well, that plus the car seat, but some hospitals provide that as well. I'm pretty sure my hospital bag for my third child will be a grocery sack with a change of clothes and some nice shower stuff.
