As things start to get closer (possibly closer than I had originally anticipated, I have decided that I should think about what to pack in a hospital bag. I found a checklist online on Planning Family. This is what they said…
Insurance info and identification
Any props you plan to use during labor (photos/birthing ball/etc.)
Socks and a comfortable nursing bra for under your gown
You can easily wear the hospital gowns, which provide access for nursing and for the nurses to check your healing. If you want to bring your own, consider whether you will have easy access for nursing. You also want to think about whether it will be comfortable to wear over a c-section incision or if it will allow easy access for the nurses to check your vaginal area after a delivery.
The hospital will have disposable undies and pads. If you want a specific brand you should bring your own. You won’t be able to use tampons for at least 6 weeks after giving birth.
Laptop/telephone/whatever you need to spread the good news!
Clothes to wear home (You can wear what you arrived in – it’ll still fit!)
The hospital generally provides shirts, diapers, and hats for baby while they are there.
Blanket, depending on the weather outside
What do YOU say? What should I add or take away from this list? Any tips would be great!
