Welcome back to Blush & Camo! Baby C is due so soon and today I wanted to share my entire hospital checklist for myself, Chuck, and Baby C.
Chuck and I have read countless books, talked with our friends who are already parents, and I also asked my Instagram community to give their input on what I should pack in my hospital bag.
This post is all the information I’ve complied and narrowed it down to the items I think are the most important.
This is not an all inclusive list, and depending on the mama-to-be your list may look a little different. I hope this list helps you when you are packing for your big day!
MY HOSPITAL BAG
– My Hospital Bag: I opted for a weekender sized bag to fit all the items I will need! I love the monogrammed one I found on Etsy. Amazing quality and comes in a variety of colors!
- TULA face wash and TULA toner (use code “JULIANNA” for 15% off your entire order!)
- Toothbrush & Toothpaste
- Hair ties
- TULA Moisturizer
- Body Wash
- Chapstick (this one is my all time favorite!)
– Makeup Bag– I’m packing this in case I feel up to putting on a little makeup for pictures after Baby C’s birth!
– Cozy Robe
– Two pairs of comfy pajamas
– A pair of slippers
– Two pairs of warm socks
– Nursing bras
– Going home outfit: I plan on packing a lounge-set
– Blanket and pillow from home: I’m told hospital pillows and blankets aren’t the comfiest.
– Portable bluetooth speaker: Chuck and I want to create a calming environment during labor and delivery.
– Sound machine
– Extra long cell phone charger cord: This was the number one most recommended item from my followers on Instagram!
CHUCK’S HOSPITAL BAG
– Copy of our birth plan: I’m not sure how Chuck and I will be feeling in the moment so we want to ensure we have our plan written out so we don’t forget anything! I know that many labor & delivery plans don’t go according to plan, but I’m a huge planner so this is more of a comfort to have it more than anything.
– Snacks: Many hospitals have no food available at night except vending machine items.
– Reusable water bottle
– Sweatshirt or two: Hospitals can get cold! I’m also told during labor & delivery I might get very hot and want the room on a low temperature!
– Change of clothes
– Timer or watch: To time contractions
– Reading materials or computer
BABY C’s HOSPITAL BAG
– Clothing for hospital and trip home
– Announcement Outfit
– Breastfeeding pillow
– Baby blanket
– Anti-scratch mittens and booties
I was told not to bring diapers because hospitals have an endless supply!
