7 Hospital Bag Must Haves For Mommy

Hospital Bag Must Haves

Today I will be sharing 7 of the must have items I had in my hospital bag. I tried to keep what I brought to a minimum. I was in labor for two days, so I was exhausted by the time my son arrived and I did not take a shower, so I did not need shower gel, a bath towel, etc.
1. Lipbalm
2. Hair Ties
While in labor, the 2 things I recommend are lipbalm and hair ties. For some reason, your lips get very chapped and no one wants hair in their face while trying to push!
3. Robe and Non Slip Socks
While you are in labor, you are in a hospital gown, but after, you do want to get into something a little more comfortable. I purchased a zip up robe and it was amazing for when I needed to nurse (or try to nurse) my son.Β  The hospital is a little chilly, so you do want to bring some non slip socks!
4. Face Wash/ Face Moisturizer
5. Toothbrush/ Toothpaste
Because I was in labor for so long, the one thing that made me feel human again was washing my face and brushing my teeth. So I recommend bringing face wash, face moisturizer, a toothbrush and toothpaste.
6. Nursing bra or Nursing tank
I personally wore a nursing tank while in the hospital, they are super comfy!
7. Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are the perfect “going home” outfit for mommy πŸ™‚

What are some of the must have items you needed in your hospital bag?

  1. I loved having my Boppy pillow to nurse…and definitely needed comfy pajamas! Yes yes yes on the lip balm and hair ties…and perhaps even your own pillow from home. It’ s allllll about the comfort!

  2. You’re so right about the need to make yourself feel as comfortable and human as possible after having a baby. I bled and was in pain for weeks after having my daughter, due to needing stitches, and it was the little things that made a difference while I was in the hospital.

  3. Yes! That lip balm helped me out sooo much. There’s nothing more annoying than chapped lips when you’re going through it lol Thanks for the reminder!

  4. This is definitely an awesome list! I feel like so many people over pack for the hospital, and only end up using basically what you’ve mentioned. The only thing I’d add is my phone charger & an ipad or tablet. With my first I was at the hospital for 17 hours in labor before he got here, so it was definitely awesome to have! At least for my husband, I watched a criminal minds marathon the whole time on the TV.
