Last time, I forgot nursing pads. I had lanolin but when I used it, it stained my bra. Even though my milk hadn't come in and I wasn't leaking, it would have been nice to have them.
I'm also bringing nursing shells this time. My nipples were just so freaking sore! Shells prevent clothes from touching them.
I was never bored in the hospital. This time I'll probably bring my iPad, but I doubt I'll use it much. I don't even think I turned on the room's TV last time, between holding DD, learning to nurse and having visitors I was just way too occupied.
