    Disposable toothbrush: a toothbrush I'm willing to use for a couple nights then throw away at the hospital before I return home.

      Great idea. Fewer hospital germs to carry home with you.

    A lightweight robe. Cozy and comfortable, presentable enough for wearing around the hospital, and easy nursing access.

    Warm socks and a sweatshirt. I found the hospital chilly or maybe it was just adjusting to hormones going crazy from just having a baby.
