What’s In My Hospital Bag

Considering I’m full term (37 weeks) today I figured I should get a move on with packing our bags for the hospital. I have been watching countless YouTube videos on what people packed versus what they actually used and I think I came up with a pretty good list.

My Bag:

Toiletries: dental floss, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, headband, hair ties, bobby pins, scrunchi, hair clip, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, razor, shaving cream, face wash, face moisturizer, DO, lanolin cream, nursing pads, qtips, jewelry pouch, hair iron, blow dryer, brush, bottom spray, clear polish, neosporin, tweezers, chap stick (I keep this bag packed since I travel often so some of it might seem random).

Snacks/Extras/Electronics: pre-natal vitamins, water bottle, crystal light, cashews, SF lifesavors, gold fish, camera/charger, extra bag, towel, flip flops, boppy pillow, iphone/charger, kindle/charger

Clothing: 2 nursing tanks, 2 sweats, sweatshirt, 2 non skid socks, toms, handbag

Some of these items aren’t pictured because I’m still using them so I have a list of these items so I know to grab them quickly before we head out of the door.

Jon’s bag includes:  jeans, 3 t-shirts, gym shorts, undies, socks, sneakers, flip flops, sweatshirt, hat, glasses, DO, Toothbrush, razor, computer/charger, blackberry/charger, iphone/charger, towel

Baby’s bag:  Diaper Bag, Receiving blanket, burp clothes, cord blood set, mittens, nail clipper (zo-li), NB size outfit, 0-3 size outfit, socks, hat, swaddle, baby wipes, pacifier, baby book, hospital registration papers, car seat & base

We don’t plan on having many visitors other than our parents so I’m planning on staying in sweats the entire stay. We also live about 10 blocks from the hospital so worse case scenario Jon or our parents can run home to get something if we forgot it.

I tried to pack light since I have read that people generally over pack but do you think I’m missing anything?? I know some things on my list most likely won’t be used but I had space so I threw it in ‘just in case’.

Can’t wait to meet you little guy!

    Girlfriend, if you have the energy to iron your hair or tweeze a brow, you are tougher than I was. ;)
    In all seriousness, a great list. The only thing missing might be a robe. I wore one for early labor.
