Ultimate Checklist for Maternity Hospital Bag

Ultimate Checklist for Maternity Hospital Bag for pregnant women

Maternity Hospital Bag is something a pregnant lady should prepare it at least 2 weeks before due date of delivery. As you approach 38 weeks of pregnancy, delivery can happen any day, and you need to be ready with your hospital bag so as to avoid missing an important stuff last moment.

That’s why we have prepared this ultimate checklist for maternity hospital bag. Save this list or share with your friend or relative who is going to deliver a baby soon.

Hospital Bag for Mother:

  • Hospital file, ID and insurance papers: Have your medical records handy, so that your doctors can easily see your medical history.
  • Dressing gown: A soft dressing gown is useful for pacing around during labor, or afterward, if you spend some time in the hospital.
  • Socks: Many mums pop on some warm socks if their feet get cold during labor.
  • Slippers or flip-flops: You’ll want slippers that are comfortable and easy to slip in and out of to wear as you walk around the hospital ward.
  • Body lotion or massage oil: Some mums-to-be find a little massage during labor relaxing.
  • Heavy-duty maternity pads: Although the hospital may provide some, pack plenty of heavy-duty maternity-pads, just in case. It’s normal to bleed a lot after the birth, and maternity pads are softer and more absorbent than standard ones.
  • Underwear: Pack several pairs of comfortable underwear that you won’t mind getting messy, and that are large enough for those maternity pads.
  • Bras: Be prepared with a few nursing bras or any other comfortable, well-fitting bras.
  • Nipple Cream: Sometimes initially milk flow is less so baby ends up biting on nipples leading to sore nipples. For which you should carry nipple cream as a precautionary thing.
  • Toiletries: Don’t forget towels, tissues, hairbrush, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, body wash, shampoo.
  • Phone and charger: That way you can stay in touch with loved ones, you can use it to take those first few pictures, and post your special news on social media.
  • Clothes: Apart from your nightdress, you might choose to take some comfortable clothes to wear during your stay in hospital.
  • Snacks & beverages: Overall labor process is very tiring. So you will need energy and hydration post exhaustive delivery process.

Hospital Bag for Newborn Baby:

  • Baby clothes: Even though hospital provide first clothes to cover the baby, but you need to pack prewashed baby soft clothes for further days. In Indian culture, we use perused old clothes to wrap babies as they have become soft over the years with use. So carry them with you.
  • Socks: Newborns are very vulnerable to hypothermia, so make sure to keep their feet covered in sock.
  • Blanket: While the hospital will likely provide blankets, a blanket of your own is always good to have on hand to use during skin-to-skin contact.
  • Diapers: About 20 to 30 diapers made especially for newborns.
  • Small spoon and bowl: In many newly delivered mothers, milk may not come as soon as after delivery for which doctors will recommend readymade formula feeds. As newborns may not be able to suck on baby bottles, its easier to use spoon & bowl to feed baby.
  • Baby soap: it is important to use baby soap for bathing newborn and avoid any harmful chemicals on body.
  • Baby oil: Baby oil for massaging.

We recommend to keep printout of this list ready with you. As sometimes in emergency, your partner or someone at home can easily pack your maternity hospital bag for you.
