Hospital Bag Checklist


My hospital bag basic packing list:

  • socks
  • underwear – granny panties
  • loose lounge pants
  • oversized tee
  • nursing bra
  • tank top
  • oversized cardigan or thin zip up
  • hair dryer or wand dryer (I have long hair and hate leaving it wet)
  • cosmetic bag – travel size shampoo/conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, face skincare items, makeup, chapstick, hair ties, deodorant, hair brush, etc.
  • flip flops or slippers
  • nursing pillow
  • hair ties
  • reusable water bottle
  • phone / electronic chargers

 Baby basic packing list:

  • newborn baby outfit to go home
  • car seat
  • swaddle (I find it easier with the zip or velcro)
  • baby photo outfit (optional)

If you’ve delivered a baby before, I would love to hear what your hospital bag must haves were and/or let me know ones that I may have missed?
