4.) Conditioner and lotion. Most hospitals provide bath linens, shampoo and body wash or soap, but they don't provide conditioner or lotion. Being there for almost a week means that you will need those things. I know at my hospital they also provided a toothbrush and toothpaste, but I know I was glad to have my own as well. I was also glad to have my make-up case. I know it seems silly, but I did my make-up every morning after my shower, it made me feel more human. Bring lip balm at the very least. The hospital air is very dry and it can get rather uncomfortable. I also brought a razor and shaving cream, but found it pretty much impossible to shave. I wasn't really able to bend over to get to my legs. I liked having it to shave my underarms though, especially since most of my pajamas have tank tops.
5.) This one is a "don't bother to bring" item: a water bottle. It was on pretty much every list that I read, but I didn't need it. The hospital provided a HUGE plastic cup with a lid and straw when I was admitted. I have heard from others that they were also given a similar cup (mine held 32 ounces, that seems to be standard from what I've heard from others). I do have one little bit of advice about the cup though. I know they give you a straw, but DON'T USE IT. It will give you gas and that is terribly painful when you have a c-section. I was told that little tip after about three days, I wish I had known it before I went in.
6.) Bring something to do. The first few days you will be tired, but as the days go on you will get more energy and they don't let you do much as far as moving around :-). I had my thank you notes and my baby announcement envelopes to write and address (just make sure they put your IV line in your non-writing hand!), I also brought movies (my hospital room had a DVD player) and my Nintendo DS. I wish I had brought a book or a few magazines as well. There is only so much daytime TV that you can watch and the baby sleeps a lot :-)
7.) Then there are the standard items: Camera (you can take pictures in the operating room, my nurse even took pictures of my daughter being born), socks (lots!), hair ties, hair brush, glasses or contacts and all supplies for those items, and any birth plan that you have (you can have a birth plan with a c-section!).
