Here is a checklist that you can check and keep ready for the D- DAY 

  • Hospital paperwork, ID, and insurance card.
  • Lightweight and skin-friendly hospital gown for the new mom.
  • Nursing-friendly tops or dresses for feeding the baby and going home
  • Comfortable Nursing Pillows
  • Nursing pads are a very useful breastfeeding accessory.
  • Maternity Lingerie for the post-delivery phase
  • Cold packs. - Cold packs are great for instant cooling relief after birth whether vaginal or c-section.
  • Slip Ons or comfortable slippers
  • Toiletries - you'll need your toothbrush, hair comb, an extra set of hair ties, and maybe a lip balm
  • Reusable water bottle in case you need something more than water, an electrolyte drink, coconut water, or calming  green tea
  • Snacks and drinks - Labor can sometimes be very long, so carrying your favorite will help and it will help your hospital stay a little comfortable.
  • Heavy-duty maternity pads - The hospital may provide you with some but we'd suggest that you carry extra just in case.
  • Last but the least - Your Pediatrician’s Contact Information- it’s good to have it handy.

Things to Pack in Your Hospital Bag for Baby
