Hospital Bag Checklist for Mom and Baby

Here's what I've packed for my labor and after for my birth/hospital bag.



What I packed for myself

  • Birth plan. print a few copies

  • Robe

  • Toiletries Don’t forget this!

  • hairbrush

  • toothbrush and toothpaste

  • deodorant

  • lip balm

  • extra hair ties

  • shower slippers

  • Comfy clothes that have easy access for breastfeeding after delivery have my nursing tank and nursing bra with loose pants like joggers or lightweight sleep pants.

  • Gown for birthing (no hospital gown for me)

  • If you plan on laboring in the water at any point, pack a dark-colored sports bra or a bathing suit top.

  • Crocs flip-flops for going home - I'm using the same ones I have for my shower shoes. Also, remember you wore shoes there...lol

  • Electrolyte drinks, like Gatorade or coconut water

  • Long cell phone charging cord to reach your bed

  • Nipple cream if you plan on breastfeeding

  • Washcloth and bath towels

  • Also, have your breast pump in the car just in case

  • Pillow

  • Pads for after (because the hospital one are so huge)

  • Underwear to secure pad or you can use the whites that the hospital gives you

  • Portable Bluetooth speaker and Spotify playlist.

  • Going home outfit

For Baby

  • A car seat.

  • A going-home outfit: I recommend packing two different outfits in different sizes (newborn or 0-3 months fit) because you don’t know how big or small your baby will be! Also, hats and/or socks, if weather appropriate.

  • Have your pediatrician’s contact information in case nurses or doctors request it

  • Bottles and formula (your preferred brand instead of what hospital gives you) if that's what you plan on doing.

  • Do not bring diapers or wipes! The hospital has all the diapers and wipes you’ll need.
