I'm putting together a grab bag that I can keep ready for any admissions. I've previously had a premature baby and being monitored for another high risk pregnancy. I don't need a labour and delivery bag in the sense that I don't need baby clothes etc because if my baby was born now it would go straight to nicu
Last time I was admitted I had to scrabble to get things together and the labour bag was pretty useless and only served to remind me that I hadn't had a normal full term outcome and so I'm going to do a separate bag for the baby.
I'm going to pack basics for an overnight stay in case I'm admitted from the dau and then I can get my husband to bring in extra stuff as needed. So apart from toiletries and nightwear what else would you put in?

Spare glasses/contact lenses/phone charger (if you have them)
Hair band
Lip balm
A pen

I had an emergency admission and wished I'd had time to grab a few things - as it was, DH arrived at the hospital to meet me, bearing an overnight bag that contained two bras, no knickers, a pair of slippers and not much else!

I would say, aside from toiletries and pyjamas:
Hairbrush and bobble
Warm socks
Spare t shirt
Phone charger
