Hospital Packing List For Mamas
Knowing what to pack for your baby’s birth can be difficult, especially if you’re becoming a mom for the first time. Getting the baby ready is important to ensure you have a smooth and pleasant time through this journey.
This essential list of items will help you have an easier birthing experience. It’s better to pack your bag three weeks before your due date because babies sometimes arrive sooner.
Whether you are having a natural vaginal birth or a c-section, you will be spending a good few hours in your hospital room before the baby arrives and at least a day after the baby does. You can carry maternity tops or kurtis that double up as nursing tops and a pair of stretchy pants for your stay in the hospital. Comfortable footwear is a must too. Don’t forget to pack your toiletries.
A couple of comfortable nursing gowns, leakproof breastfeeding bras and breast pads will help make breastfeeding easy. The maternity and nursing pillow is a very useful addition to your nursing kit as it helps to prop up your baby for a feed.
You will have postpartum bleeding after the baby arrives. Period panties and sanitary pads must be packed in your hospital bag to manage this bleeding. These items will keep you comfortable and sanitary during your hospital stay and after you return home. Maintaining your personal hygiene during the postpartum period will not only keep you healthy but will also provide you with peace of mind as you recover from childbirth.

For The Baby
A few baby onesies, newborn diapers, a few wash cloths and burp cloths will be needed for your baby. You can also keep a special going-home outfit for your little one. Choose soft, comfortable fabrics that will keep your baby warm and cozy. Keep in mind that while hospitals provide some basic baby items, it's always a good idea to bring your own to ensure your baby is as comfortable as possible during your stay.
