You mean your hospital bag?  Not sure if that is what you’re talking about but this is my list for me and baby:

Going home outfit for baby and for me

socks for me and for baby (maybe 2 pairs for baby)

Bed slippers for me

Baby sleeper and onsie

mittens and 2 bibs for baby

A hat

Nursing pads

Sanitary pads


underwear for me (1 or 2)

Diapers and wipes and diaper cream

Towel for me

soap for me

makeup/shower cap/magazines for me

toothbrush and paste and floss

Lotion and deoderant and vaseline for me


nursing pillow?? (I might or might not take it)

Baby blankets (1 regular, 1 receiving)

hand sanitizer

Flip flops for shower

I don’t want to take too much stuff even though I feel like that is too much as is.. only a 1 night stay in hospital thankfully.

@bridalprincess:  +1 great list!

Just add snacks to the list- trail mix, granola bars, etc, as well as hard candy to suck on.  my bff’s water broke early so I packed her bag and added snacks for her and her husband, they said they were a lifesaver in the middle of the night!

I’m a Chicago bee, at what hospital are you giving birth?

I didn’t use half of the things I packed for the hospital but the things I appreciated most were a soft, lightweight robe and my own travel size toiletries. Don’t forget your cell phone charger!
