8.) They provide everything you need for the baby except for an outfit to go home in. Pick out something that you love in a tiny size, chances are it will be the only time that they will be able to wear it! Most newborn clothes will only fit up to 10 pounds and many babies are almost 10 pounds when they are born. I would also bring an outfit or two for pictures unless you are planning on getting professional pictures taken later. I know they took pictures at the hospital and they were adorable, I just wish I had another outfit for her to wear for them. Make sure you get some kind of pictures, if you don't you will wish you did!
