What to pack in hospital bag?

I know I have a long time before delivery but I want to know what should i pack in my bag when its almost time to go? Im a new mom and cant ask any of my family for help due to me being so far away from the advice id need.


chapstick socks! nursing bra or tank top

Comfy clothes, books/activities, own pads, shampoo conditioner body wash, snacks

Outfit for baby to go home in

Something to bite on when contractions get tough

Loose clothing
Nursing bra
Soap/ tooth brush and paste
Thongs or slippers
Hair tie

I packed diapers, wipes, going home outfits (even though my husband had to go buy newborn clothes cause what he had were to big), binkies… and for me I had going home outfit, cell phone/charger, robe, slippers, snacks/drinks, tooth brush, toothpaste, hair brush, deodorant, crossword puzzle, etc.

Diapers, baby clothes things for you

Bring your own blankets and pillows, they’ll help.
Chap stick, you’ll definitely need it.
Bring your own favorite snacks, cause hospital food.
Slippers, loose clothing and cool nightgowns.
Books, coloring what have you.
Bring your toothbrush and toothpaste/shampoo and conditioner and your own towel- hospital towels suck.
Bring extra bags too, you’ll go home with more than you came with.
Baby clothes/blanket.
Baby mittens so he/she doesn’t scratch their face too much.
If you’re nursing get a nursing bra, or just don’t wear one lol.

Toothbrush. Maxi pads

I put 3 days worth of clothes, swaddle towel, I bought a spare phone charger, all my wifes favorite stuff. Like spas and her own shampoo so that way it made her feel good. I had the baby car seat and everything right where it needed to be.

Pjs snacks 1 going home outfit for the baby and bring an extra bag for all the free baby stuff u get in p.p room!!!


It’s different for everyone. Myself personally I packed the following:
Hair brush
Hair elastics
Body wash
Lots of Gatorade
Cell phone charger
Comfy underwear
Pyjama pants
Night gowns
Fuzzy socks
*For the baby I packed:
Receiving blankets
Boob pads (if you’re BF)
Outfit to go home in


Nipple cream and your favorite pillow

A loose fitting gown. I wouldn’t recommend pajamas because the doctor will need to examine you after you have the baby. It’s easier with a gown. Toothbrush and toothpaste, hair brush. The hospital should provide a lot of things.

Might be a bit T.M.I. but after an unplanned c-section 15 months ago, I suggest Depends undergarments. They work way better than the mesh panties and huge pads the hospital provides.
Also, they are high waisted so they don’t rub on any bandaging. You also won’t have to worry as much about accidental leaking.
