WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG

Self + Oral Care

Toothpaste & brush because I most likely will be spending a night at the hospital. They’re quite strict on visitor numbers & hours now due to covid, only 2 visitors are allowed at a time (infants are included as 1 visitor). So this time I’m not packing my makeup bag since I won’t be seeing anyone. Gotta have my moisrturiser, spf products & hair tie with me at all times though. 

Comfy + Cosy

You’re going to want to wear something comfortable so PJ’s for hospital stay & tracksuit for my going home outfit. It can get cold at the hospital hence a robe & socks come real handy. In terms of actual delivery, I think I’m just going to wear my satin slip night dress.

Prepared Mum

The hospital will provide you with sanitary pads, but I much prefer wearing the women’s disposable absorbent undies due to better comfort, convenience & hygiene. I’m going to try to speed up my breast milk production this time which is why I’ve packed my breast pump (+ nursing bra/pads) to pump even whenever I get the chance to. Also packed nipple cream just incase my nipples become sore or blistered (like the first time) from breastfeeding.

Newborn

The hospital will supply nappies, blankets, singlets, cloths & towels so I really don’t feel the need to bring my own for bub. Just packed zip through onesies x2 with cuff fold over mittens + footmuffs & beanie.

Other Essentials

You don’t need much documents unless you’re going private which is not the case with us here. Just need my antenatal card for checking in & phone charger.
