What’s in My Hospital Bag

what to pack in hospital bagMy bags are packed and ready for whenever our little one wants to make her debut! I feel like I researched all over on the best things to pack in a hospital bag, without going overboard, and the below are what made the cut. Everything fit, with room to spare, in this tote and it’s such a great bag if you’re looking for a weekender option or even a gym bag. I love traveling with it!

I have these pajamas and they’re easily my most worn pair, however I wasn’t about to bring those to the hospital with me. I picked up this look a like version and not only are they super comfortable, the price can’t be beat.

I’m bringing this nursing bra, and this tank. Once we get home I have this tank and this bra  – both of which are so comfortable! I wanted to save the better ones for after the hospital 🙂

A robe is always packed with me when I travel, so this one is packed and will be a good extra layer for the tank, pajamas and after showering.

My favorite toiletries: face wash, eye cream , moisturizer , dry shampoo (a must)

An extra long phone charging chord and my back up battery (it’s heavy, but is clutch to have when your phone gets low)

An inexpensive pair of flip flops that I can toss before leaving the hospital

Two non-white pillow cases for Brian and I to help distinguish our pillows from home vs the hospital ones.

We sleep with a sound machine every night, so I packed this little one (that’s actually for baby G) to help get what little sleep we can.

Snacks- RX bars, Justin’s almond butter packets + fresh fruit, fruit and nut mix,

what to pack hospital bagFor the little babe:

+ a convertible gown, footie pajamas in size newborn, one in size 0-3 months (just in case) and one of these little onesies.

+ a cute swaddle and blanket for pictures and the ride home

+ a little hat and headband

Fellow moms, what were the items you loved having with you at the hospital? Send any and all suggestions my way please!

    I can’t believe you are getting so close, how exciting! I packed my makeup bag because your body goes through so much stress during child birth, so wearing a little makeup made me feel a little more like my old self.

    SOOOOOO excited for Baby G to arrive! Can’t wait to hold her in my arms……

    Ahhhh so exciting, I can’t believe she’s almost here! The one thing I forgot with my toiletries was conditioner, and the hospital supplied shampoo in the shower but not conditioner. My hair was tangled from all the joys of labor, and laying in bed for so long that it was the one minor item that turned into a major problem (to me only of course). Looking forward to your big announcement of her arrival <3

    Goodness gracious this gives me allllll the feels. I miss those newborn days so much! Not glamorous but stock up on big granny panties, you will want full coverage and super comfy that you can throw away after a few weeks. I packed so many cute pjs and robes and never changed out of my hospital gown because C section… ouch! Don’t forget your camera! And absolutely to the sound machine. I had ours blasting the entire time!

    I brought those EXACT same Target pajamas to the hospital — so comfy and still decently cute for pictures!

    Getting so excited for you! I love that you seem to have all the basics and necessities ready without going overboard. I’ll have to save this for later!

    So exciting that your bags are packed! I hope she gets here soon! I like to bring my own blanket too. You can get the shivers big time from epidurals and a flimsy gown and hospital socks (bring slippers!) don’t always cut it.
