What To Pack For Baby’s Hospital Bag

Packing a baby hospital bag is more simple than one may think. Here is a list of what I feel is the only things you will need during your stay at the hospital after your baby is born.

Tip: Try to keep it simple!
1. Receiving/burp rags
  • These are generally great to have for many reasons. The main reason is for spit up or any body fluids that may get on the baby or you.
  • They are great for using a blanket or covering up during a nursing session when guests are there.
  • NOTE: They provide this as well, however it is nice to have softer ones that you may have brought.
2. Two pairs of baby clothes
  • Your baby will most likely be skin to skin with you or wrapped up in a receiving blanket in their bed, so clothes are not very important the first day or so.
  • Two pairs of clothes is great for a photo shoot at the hospital and going away outfit.
  • Also good to have an extra incase of accidents. 
  • This includes pants, onesie, socks, and hat.
3. Baby Butt Paste
  • Figure out what type and brand of baby butt rash cream you want because it is great incase they need it.
4. Carseat 
  • This is a no brainer, but it is a must to have before leaving with baby.
Things Hospitals Provide For You
  • Diapers and Wipes
  • Blankets
  • Baby Thermometer 
  • Formula(if you don’t want to nurse or need it for other reasons)
  • Nose Squeezy
  • Hat
