Hospital Bag Checklist and Must Haves for Mom and Baby

06

May

Having a baby in the middle of a pandemic certainly has its challenges. There are so many unknowns right now… I’ve been trying to focus on what I can control to get ready for life at home with a newborn, so I’m slowly checking off all the boxes on my 3rd trimester to-do list. This week we made progress on my hospital bag! Because I am considered a pre-term labor precaution I’m packing my bag a bit early. Here’s everything I’m putting in this time around and a few changes I’m making given the fact that there is a pandemic happening!

My Hospital Bag Checklist

The closer my due date gets the more excited I get! I’m a pretty minimal packer for the hospital since they give you so many freebies there, but thought I’d share what I’m bringing along so you can save for later!

For the Mama’s:

  • Wallet with insurance card
  • Mask
  • Normal overnight toiletries
  • Chapstick
  • Hair ties
  • Face wipes
  • Water Bottle
  • Extra long phone charger
  • Charged camera with empty SD card
  • Nursing bras
  • Breast Pads
  • Coming home outfit

For Baby:

  • Car seat
  • 2-3 outfits
  • 1 bow or hat for photos
  • 2 swaddles
  • Baby blanket / lovey
  • Card stock for baby footprints to frame
