Do they provide br___t pads and lanolin cream at the hospital if you are br___t feeding, or should I bring my own?

They provided lanolin but not the b___stpads. Your hospital may be different. I would bring them just in case.

My hospital provided a ton of stuff, I was surprised. They even brough a b___st pump in for me. But every hospital is different. I would call and ask.

My b___sts didn't even get engorged till a couple days after I got home. You probably won't need them.

I had to ask for b___st pads because I did not think of bringing them. They did not provide lanolin, but had sample pads when I had asked. They pretty much did not provide any supplies. but they did provide a very helpful lactation consultant. I was in the hospital longer for a c-section, but I would not have needed pads until I got home if I had a v____al birth. It wasn't until day 3 or 4 that I needed them.

My hosptial supplied lanolin after I started to complain about my nipples hurting so bad. I don't know about the b___st pads because I didn't need them until after I got home. Ask your ob/gyn what they provide they should know.

They gave me the Medela lanolin too. I had a c-section but was home after two days so I didn't engorge for a couple more days. They gave me everything I asked for too! Even conditioner when I forgot mine at home! I was in a catholic hospital though and the only one in the birthing center that week. I was pampered by all the nurses!

They will provide just about anything you need. What each hospital provides does vary but the most important thing to remember is that NONE of it is free. You will be billed.
