As a new mom, I read every essentials list on what to pack in my hospital delivery bag. I added and subtracted with each subsequent delivery, so I thought I'd covered all my bases when I went to pack my hospital delivery bag for my fourth time for the birth of my son.

There were several things I didn't pack that I really, really wish I had. You'd have thought I'd learn by now! But I'm hoping that by sharing what I regret failing to include in my hospital bag, I can help other soon-to-be mamas enjoy the most comfortable, convenient hospital stays possible.
