Two weeks to go and hopelessly unorganised!

On my list I have:

Loads of Pants
Pads - both ends!
Phone charger
Snacks (what exactly?)
Dressing gown/slippers

Car seat
Cotton wool

Can anyone advise me what I've missed please?

Drink if not water
Baby wipes
Change of clothes as you will probably stay over
LED candles if you want low light in the delivery room
Bottle for water.

Carrier bags for soiled clothes.
Maybe a pack of sensitive baby wipes, cleaning babies Meconium off their little bottoms n bits takes forever with cotton wool and water and is very fiddly.

Hand cream, my hands always get really chapped and sore in the heat of hospitals.
Sleep mask - even if it helps you get one week of sleep. Silky ones are useles.
I found a travel pillow (pound land!) very useful.
Face wipes - oh the sweet joy of a face wipe when you're all sweaty and hot.
Snacks (flapjack is great)
Hair bands or clips depending on what your hair needs.
