What's in my Hospital Bag!

I'm closing in on my due date, just five weeks to go (if she doesn't decide to come early that is)! I've had my bags packed since about 30 weeks, because I'm an over planner, but here are the items that I'm bringing with me to the hospital.


  • Robe - I wanted something that would double for pictures if I take some at the hospital

  • 2 pair loose pants - I'll wear sweatpants to the hospital and then bring at least one pair of joggers

  • 2 nursing bras - I'll probably wear one to the hospital and bring an extra

  • Pajamas – Want to make sure I'm comfortable!

  • Go home outfit (if different from above) - I'm bringing a tee, joggers, and sneakers

  • Nursing pads 

  • Cardigan/Sweatshirt

  • Blanket – It'll probably be cold in the hospital

  • Flip flops - For showering

  • Slippers

  • Makeup - Mostly bringing this for pictures

  • Face wipes, Deodorant, Lotion

  • Earth Mama Nipple Butter

  • Toiletries - love this self contained bag of toiletries

    • Shower items (face wash, soap, shampoo, conditioner, razor)

    • Hair: brush, ties, blow dryer, dry shampoo

    • Toothbrush, paste, mouthwash

  • Numbing Spray

  • Peri Bottle


  • 2-3 changes of clothes / boxers / socks

  • Sweats and hoodie / pajamas

  • Toothbrush/Deodorant



  • Snacks (trail mix, granola bars, fruit snacks, cheese its)

  • Small extension cord

  • 2 iPhone cords, long if possible

  • Camera / Charger

Given COVID, we'll also be bringing masks (1-2) and preparing to stay for longer, because from our understanding once there you won't be able to leave.

After Baby A arrives, I'll update this with what we did and didn't use. Hope this is helpful!
