first time delivering in Durham NC....questions!

I'm currently 35 weeks and am packing my hospital bags, but this is the first time delivering at duke regional hospital. Before I was in Florida when I delivered and I simply do not want to over pack or pack things that I will be duplicating. Does anyone know what I will be given for both baby and I after delivery? Also as seeing as this is my first baby boy, does anyone have any special items I might need to bring with me as well that worked for you? Thank you for any advice that you could provide!

Re: first time delivering in Durham NC....questions!

  • I've delivered twice at Durham Regional.  My second was just born a month ago and I packed a lot less than I did with my first delivery.  

    The only thing that I brought for baby was a going home outfit.  They pretty much provide everything for the baby (formula, breastfeeding supplies/pumps, clothing, blankets, diapers, wipes, etc).  For me, I brought a few comfy outfits (I had a csection and was in the hospital for a few days), nursing bras/tanks, flip flops, and the boppy.  

    Oh - take some snacks!  Unfortunately, the food at the hospital is HORRIBLE.  Most of the time it wasn't edible.  DH ended up picking up dinner for us every night.

  • OK great thank you! I didn't pack much for baby, just clothes and blankets. I wasn't sure about the food either. I know they had the coach's corner for the dads but I forgot what snacks was in there. But I'll definitely be bringing some now. Thanks again!
