  1. Great list! I totally forgot Lanolin last time and this list reminded me I still need to buy some for this baby. 32 weeks but the docs know I won't make it to 40. So I really need to get on that. I didn't pack snacks but my hospital has awesome snacks for both Mom and Dad that are included. (visiting from the Tips and Tricks link party)

  2. I was going to totally tell you you forgot snacks until I did a second check. In my experience, my kids and husband ending up eating all of my snacks anyways. Make sure to hide one or two for yourself!
