What’s in my Hospital Bag?

I am finally typing out everything I am bringing to the hospital! We have had our bags packed for weeks just in case little man arrived early! I have finally put the final touches on my bags so I am ready to share! BTW, I am an over packer so I am sure I have lots of extra items, but since this is my first baby, I just want to be prepared as I can be and as comfortable as possible!

For Mom:

Carry-On Hardside Spinner Suitcase

Monogrammed Canvas Weekender Bag

2-3 Pairs of Nursing Friendly Pjs (ps- these are only $20)

Comfy Slippers (these are $18 and completely adorable)

Nursing Seamless Bra – These are $17 and are so comfy! I’ve been wearing them for weeks now.

3 Robes. This one in gray. And these two robes in the white and blue colors.

2-3 Wrap Nursing Sleep Bras – These are my fav!! I’ve been sleeping in them for months already, Highly recommend.

Cozy Blanket from Home– I love Barefoot Dream’s Blankets!

Pillow– This one is hands down the best pillow I’ve ever owned! Zack even has one now and is bringing his!

Clip On Mini Fan – This is only $20 and on Prime. I plan on using this during labor when I’m burning up and I sleep with a fan next to our bed now for the sound, So I know this will come in handy

Belly Band– Not sure if I’ll use this right away but I have it in my bag just in case!

Tula Travel Size Kit– I love TULA skincare products!! So I purchased this travel size kit for my bag. PS- code ALEXAELIZABETH saves you 20% off any Tula!!

Toiletries and Makeup Bag- I am bringing travel size everything… shampoo, conditioner, razor, dry shampoo, face wipes, body wash…etc and for my makeup I am bringing a few of my favorites including my CC Cream (shade light), Shape Tape (Shade light sand), and Mascara etc… Also these HAIR TIES! These are the best!!

Cheap Rubber Flip Flops for the Shower- Zack also picked up a pair of these in the men’s version. I plan on leaving these there.

Towels and Wash Clothes from Home- I hear the hospital ones are awful and it’s comforting to have your own fluffy towels.

Phone Chargers with extra long cords, This Mophie Charger in the color rose gold, IPad, Laptop… all the electronics! haha!

Snacks and Stainless Steel Tumblers for Water- These are packed in Zack’s bag because I didn’t have any room left! LOL.

MomWasher Peri Bottle– the hospital provides a basic one, but I heard this one is a must have.

Nursing Items- This Nipple Cream, these disposable Nursing Pads, These bamboo nursing pads (I’m going to test out both and see which is more comfortable)

Nursing Pillow– This one came highly recommended! I hear its great to bring a nursing pillow because you are so tired about delivery and it’s easy to hold baby this way and for family members to use to hold baby.

Coming Home Dress– I picked this dress because its black, comfy, loose fitting, and will feel great after delivery.

For Baby Boy:

Diaper Bag BackPack – I love this bag! We got the color, “butterscotch”

Nuna PIPA Lite LX Infant Car Seat & Base – We did a TON of research on car seats and I am so excited to use this one for baby boy.


2-3 Swaddles and the matching hats- These are SO soft!! I love everything from Copper Pearl!!

Burp Cloths– I loved these prints!!


Coming Home Outfit- Keeping this one a secret, but it’s completely adorable 🙂

Decoration for my door- I saved my baby shower ribbons and made a cute ribbon door hanger. One of the ribbons says ” Welcome Little One” 🙂

2-3 Newborn Sleepers– I loved this pack of pjs, 3 for $12.99

Baby Nail Kit– I hear that hospitals do not provide these, So I’m bringing this kit just in case baby has long nails.

Okay friends, I think I have covered pretty much everything we are taking! Zack has his bag packed too which includes the basic things like toiletries, hair gel, pjs, a few outfits, pillow, blanket, flip flops for the shower, snacks..etc. I hope this post has been helpful and feel free to leave me questions below!!

Much Love, Alexa
