i'm bringing her diaper bag, with a few outfits, diapers, wipes, binki, socks, spit up cloth, hat, swaddle blanket, heavy blanket (since it's December and freezing outside), and her infant carseat.
i'm also planning on bringing an extra bag, because last time we had so many people stop by and bring DD something, we needed more room to take it all home, plus the stuff the hospital gave us as well. :)

If you want your baby in cute outfits, bring them. I left DD in the hospital-provided onesies/mittens and wrapped in a blanket most of the time.
Bring a coming home outfit . . . and a backup in case the first one gets dirtied.
My hospital provided diapers and wipes.
I'd get a carseat cover (like the BundleMe) so you don't have to worry about a snowsuit or anything bulky like that. And definitely a hat if you don't want LO to wear the basic hospital one home.
I'd also recommend bringing the baby book so they can stamp the baby's hand/foot prints right in it for you.

I cloth diaper, so I brought my own diapers, but your hospital might provide you with some. Same thing with wipes. I also make my own shampoo/wash so I brought my own, but they do provide there if you need. I only used 1 outfit for him to go home in, an outfit for backup, and a few blankets.
Maybe a nursing pillow? I didn't bring it, I travel light. I just used pillows.
