What should I take to the hospital when I’m about to give birth?
Mothers who plan to breastfeed may consider bringing a breastfeeding bra, breast pads, purified lanolin, and a breastfeeding pillow when they go to the hospital to deliver. Most hospitals have a list of recommended items. Find out what your hospital provides. They often have electric breast pumps to borrow, but you may want to take your own. There are several reasons why you may need to express milk while you are there. Some mothers may choose to bring previously expressed and frozen colostrum to use for any of the baby's supplements.
