Pack Your Bag, You're Having a Baby!

Now that it’s time to have your baby, what should you bring to the hospital?

Not as much as you might think…

Most of the necessities that you and your baby need will be provided by the hospital.

Ladies, there’s no need to bring shoes to match every outfit for your short hospital stay!

Here are some items you might bring to the hospital:

  • Pillow from home
  • Socks, Robe, Slippers
  • Phone charger
  • Camera of some sort
  • Comfy clothes (yes, you might still be wearing those comfy maternity pants home)
  • Open front gowns for breastfeeding. You will wear the hospital gown during delivery and can change into your own gown later if you prefer.  
  • Toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, make up
  • Chapstick
  • Clothes- If you are having a vaginal delivery, plan clothes for a 2-night stay. If you’re scheduled for a C section, pack for an extra day
  • Your favorite music
  • A going home outfit for your sweet baby, or babies
  • Baby car seat. Install the base in the car and bring only the carrier into the hospital on discharge day.  Take time to learn how to work the car seat before your baby arrives.


No matter what you bring to the hospital...

            it’s what you bring home that is most important!
