Brooke's Bumpdate: What To Pack In Your Hospital Bag


Hey, first time mom-to-be here..

You may have seen me ask on social media; What are the MUST HAVES to pack in my hospital bag for when I deliver Baby E.

I got so many good suggestions, so I figured I'd share them with you.

  • Nursing gown
  • Robe
  • Slippers
  • Your own pillow
  • Toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrush & toothpaste)
  • 2-3 outfits for yourself and same for baby
  • Face wipes
  • Zofran (in case you throw up during birth)
  • Fuzzy socks
  • Comfy clothes
  • Shower sandals
  • Lanolin
  • Paci
  • Boppy Pillow
  • Nursing bra / tanks
  • Big water bottle
  • Long phone cord
  • Snacks for when you're hungry over night
  • Comfy blanket
  • Maxi pad ice packs
  • Extra empty bags to take home stuff the nurses give you (and ask for extras, they usually give them to you)
  • Take your own breast pump so you can learn to use it
  • Chapstick
  • Comfy cotton underwear (hospital ones aren't comfy)

These are the majority of the suggestions I got, lots and lots of people said chapstick and long phone chord were their two biggest wins when it came to packing their bag!
