This week I packed my hospital bag, there is a complete list in the description box you can copy-paste, with BULK tips and tricks. I am considered “high risk”, and therefore packed according to my ‘rule of three’s’ (meaning I packed 3 of most items). Thanks so much for watching!HOSPITAL BAG CHECKLIST: BABY: - Beanies x 3 - Singlets (pic ones that button up at the bottom as they won’t roll or bunch up underneath the onesies) - Complete outfits x 4 (zip all-in-ones with flip over mittens are easiest) - Socks x 3 (long ones stay on easier than anklets) - Mittens x 3 (baby’s have super sharp nails at the start) - Warm cardigan (button up cardigans are much easier to get on and off than normal jumpers, especially as new bubs cant support the weight of their own heads and putting things over their floppy heads is overwhelming at the start) - Blankets x 3 (choose ones of different thickness, muslin, flannel, cotton and a woolen warm one) - Swaddle bags (or blankets) x 3(I love the love to dream swaddle up brand) - Change mat (to use on your hospital bed to change bubs) - Newborn Nappies (estimate for 8 nappies a day) - Water wipes (much nicer on baby’s sensitive areas, and also a godsend for wiping YOUR sensitive areas post delivery) - Barrier cream (you can pop this on baby’s bum soon after birth to make cleaning their first poop (sticky meconium) easier! - Breastfeeding book or advice (you could even get some experienced breastfeeding Mum friends to write you their best advice or tips or encouragement to read through while your establishing your bf relationship with bubs)CAR BAG: - Sick bags - Disposable absorbent mats for car seat (or old towel) - Extra nappies, pads, breast pads, ect. - Car seat (obviously) - Present for current kiddos from babyDAD/ PARTNER BAG: - Socks and jocks x 2 - Shorts - Trackies - Tops x 2 - Snacks or coins for vending machine MUM BAG: - Hospital paperwork - Parking pass (or coins) - Underwear (preferably black; bigger size, but not huge) - Nursing bras x 2 (no underwire!) - Nursing singlets x 2 - Thick socks (preferably with grippy non-slip pads) - Loose baggy tops x 2 - Leggings x 2 - Tracksuit pants and zip up hoodie (easier to breastfeed in than a jumper/pullover) - Nightgowns x 3 (pick dark colours, that have button down front for easy breastfeeding) - Water bottle - Snacks (healthy or unhealthy, depending on what floats your boat) - Maternity pads (you need to change pads every 2-3 hours, so calculate how many you think you’ll need, you can also buy women incont pads, if you’re worried about leaks!) - Breastfeeding pads (1/2 pack should suffice, if longer stay is expected pack the whole pack) - Plastic garbage bags - Thongs for showerTOILETRY BAG - Paracetamol - Nipple cream (lanolin is safest for bub and doesn’t need to be washed off prior to each feed) - Shampoo (dry or normal, or both!) & conditioner - Body wash - Moisturiser (and/or whatever cream you’ve been using on your bump, skin goes a bit saggy post delivery as there is excess room so you want to have moisturising cream to help firm-up your skin after) - Toothbrushes (you and hubby) & toothpaste - Lip balm - Facial spray or facial wipes (if you cbf getting up to wash your face) - Foot cream - Hair ties and clips - Razer - Unscented roll on deodorant (aerosols are not great for bubs) - Eye mask and ear plugs (especially if you have a shared room and find it hard to sleep with noise/light)TODDLER BAG - Clothing (enough for 24 hours) - Footwear - PJs and dressing gown - Wipes and nappies - Toothbrush - Special Present - Winter clothing (jacket, beanie, extra socks) - House key (in case your family need to grab anything extra from your place) - Any special sookie, blanket or toy they need to be able to get to sleep (if they’re older considering writing them a love note, saying how much you love an miss them)POTENTIAL EXTRAS: - Nursing/ boppy pillowLAST MINUTE ITEMS: - Phones (make an announcement list or group on your phone to make it easier to send a bulk “baby’s here” text) - Wallets - Cameras (fully charged) - ChargersThank you so much for watching, please subscribe, thumbs up and comment with any questions or suggestions!
