I packed so much. I brought huge suitcase and still asked my brother in law to get me somemore things cause the 1 day stay turned into 8 days. My poor husband made so many trips to the car. But the thing that made me feel the best besides my own movies was toothpaste toothbrush and a brush. I felt like a real person when I could finially do that.
oh good golly, i have a whole list. my panic bag is always packed. is this for a childbirth situation or a sick child? my kid stays for at least 5 days at a time. so.... my panic bag is huge. for a childbirth? loose pants, loose shirt, undies, socks. new outfit/blankie. carseat. makeup. old sock you can fill w/ ice if you get stiches. blankey, u get cold from the ice in ur crotch. cell charger. slippers. if u have longish hair, a scrunchie, you won't want your hair in your face delivering. deoderant, toothbrush. hair conditioner (hospitals have shampoo, not conditioner) put diapers n bottles n formula in car first (if ur doing formula).
