Your Hospital Checklist

  • A big bag: It needs to fit everything you need and it is a good idea to pack it beforehand. Keep it in an easy to grab a place in the house.
  • Comfortable slippers and flip flops.
  • Socks, breast pads, nursing bras, and maternity underwear. Pack plenty of extra underwear.
  • Loose nightdress and dressing gown.
  • Maternity towels or sanitary pads.
  • A fully stocked wash bag with extra supplies.
  • Loose, comfortable clothes for going back home.
  • Nappies, clothes, socks, mittens, and caps for the babies.
  • Blanket.
  • Cotton wool, baby wipes and muslin squares – lifesavers for first-time mums.
  • Mobile phone and charger.
  • Money to pay for everything.

A last piece of advice – always packs too much.
