Baby's necessities

Make sure to pack baby onesies, blankets, a white noise machine, and velcro swaddles for the baby. Don't forget to include a going-home outfit for your little one as well. It's essential to have these items ready for your baby's comfort and cleanliness during your hospital stay.

Clothing for mom

Pack loose and comfortable clothes such as this Lily and Llama Maxi Dress and Long Sleeve Button-Up Nightgown that are easy to put on and take off. Consider versatile pieces that can accommodate your changing body size post-delivery. Bring a couple of nursing-friendly tops and pajamas for convenience. Don't forget to pack cozy non-slip socks for walking around the hospital. Remember to include a robe for coverage and warmth, as well as comfortable underwear and nursing bras.

Comfortable footwear

Comfort is crucial in a hospital. Opt for slip-on sandals for easy wear and removal, which can also be worn in the hospital shower. Choose footwear with good support to reduce fatigue and prevent slips.

Toiletries and personal care items

You'll want to pack your own toiletries and personal care items for the hospital stay. This includes essentials like toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, and lotion. Don't forget items like hair ties, facial wipes, lip balm, and a gentle face wash for a bit of comfort during your stay. It's recommended to bring your preferred brands to avoid any irritations or discomfort.

Snacks and hydration

When getting ready for your hospital stay, don't overlook the importance of packing snacks and staying hydrated. Gather some easy-to-grab snacks like fruit, nuts, or granola bars to keep your energy up during labor. Hydration is crucial, so pack a refillable water bottle to make sure you stay hydrated throughout your stay. Remember, labor can be a long process, so having snacks and water on hand can help keep you comfortable and energized.

Medical and insurance documents

Make sure to bring all your essential medical and insurance documents with you to the hospital. This includes your photo ID, health insurance card, hospital pre-registration forms, medical history, list of current medications, and any relevant test results. Having these documents readily available will streamline the check-in process and ensure you receive the appropriate care during your stay.

Entertainment and relaxation

Remember to bring items for entertainment and relaxation to make your hospital stay more comfortable. Pack a favorite book or download movies on your device for entertainment during downtime. Don't forget soothing music or a relaxation playlist to help you unwind. Consider bringing a puzzle or a coloring book as a calming activity. Additionally, pack essential oils or a scented candle for a relaxing ambiance in your hospital room. Prioritizing these items will help you stay occupied and relaxed during your hospital stay.

Communication essentials

Pack a charged phone and charger to stay connected during your hospital stay. Include a list of important contacts, such as your partner, family, and healthcare provider. Don't forget to bring a notebook and pen for jotting down important information or questions you may have. Consider packing a folder to keep important documents organized.

Final checklist and tips

Ensure you have packed all essential items such as comfortable clothing, toiletries, nursing bras, and baby essentials in your hospital bag.
