Re: Hospital bag

in my experience newborns go through less diapers. Colostrum doesn't make much pee.

If you end up staying 6 days I would think they would be time for your husband to go home and get more...

It looks like a lot more than I would pack but I will only be there about 12 to 24 hrs at the most. Honestly I didn't even take a shower after my son was born I just wanted out (I was there ~noon to noon). I would pack more snacks and personally chocolate. It took them FOREVER to bring me food after my son was born. Since we were transferred from the birth center to the hospital we didn't have anything with us, not even a camera (DH took phone pics). So for #2 I will also back a small bag that has essentials that will be glued to DH in case we are transferred again.
