What to pack in your hospital bag? Tips for first time moms

As a first-time mom, it can be overwhelming to prepare for the arrival of your newborn. One important aspect of preparation is packing your hospital bag. The last thing you want is to be unprepared when the big day arrives. Here are some tips on what to pack in your hospital bag:

  1. Clothing: Pack comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that is easy to change in and out of. You’ll want clothes that are easy to nurse in, such as nursing tops or button-down shirts. Don’t forget to pack a couple of pairs of socks and a bathrobe, as hospitals can be quite chilly.

  2. Toiletries: Pack travel-sized toiletries, including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, and a hairbrush. You may also want to bring your own towels and washcloths, as hospital ones can be scratchy.

  3. Nursing supplies: If you plan on nursing your baby, pack nursing pads, lanolin cream, and a nursing pillow.

  4. Entertainment: Bring some items to keep you entertained during your hospital stay. This could be a book, magazine, or a tablet loaded with movies or TV shows. You may also want to bring a journal to document your birth experience.

  5. Baby items: Don’t forget to pack items for your newborn, such as diapers, wipes, onesies, a swaddle blanket, and a going-home outfit. It’s also a good idea to pack a car seat for the ride home.

  6. Important documents: Pack your ID, insurance information, and any hospital paperwork you may need.

  7. Snacks: Hospital food can be hit or miss, so pack some of your favorite snacks to keep you fueled during labor and recovery.

Remember to pack your hospital bag well in advance of your due date, as you never know when labor will start. Keep your bag in a convenient location, so you can easily grab it when it’s time to head to the hospital. With these essentials packed and ready to go, you can feel more at ease and prepared for the big day.
