To bring your baby home from the hospital after delivery, you will need:
  • Undershirt
  • Newborn nightgown and stretch suit
  • One outfit
  • Receiving blanket
  • Booties, hat, lightweight blankets and/or outside blanket, depending on the weather
  • Special clothes for hospital baby pictures, if desired
