Rewind: The Hospital Go Bag for Expectant Moms

I wrote a fantastic list for my hospital go bag which was comprised of several lists I found, advice and my own nifty ideas. The list also included all of the emergency numbers, the important call numbers and the things that needed to be done at home (like our dog!). Here is a revised version of that list based on my experiences.

  1. Easy to open pajamas (button front)
  2. Robe
  3. Slippers
  4. Go home outfit and shoes (Be prepared for super swollen feet and body)
  5. Go home outfit and blanket for baby
  6. Small toiletry bag with the essentials for hygiene, including a good shower
  7. Hairbrush and hairbands or barrettes
  8. Lotion and lip balm
  9. Refillable water bottle
  10. Breastfeeding essentials: breastfeeding bra, pump and sterilizing bags (I used mine in the hospital. It’s good to know its there)
  11. Laptop or smartphone (most hospitals have free wifi so you can send out the last minute arrangement email or announce your new arrival)
  12. Snacks (Non-perishable stuff like crackers, granola bars or even a good solid apple. Between meals you might get hungry and the cafeteria is not always open.)
  13. For the ride home: infant car seat
  14. Cord blood kit (If you are planning on saving the cord blood, make sure you alert your doc in advance and store the kit in your bag.)
