What's in the baby's hospital bag ?

Sunday, 29 March 2015

Whoop whoop! a few days now until baby's due date, I haven't blogged for ages now.  I promised to write about baby related topics, but quite failed as I had some health problems lately and lots of school work, I just had to take a break and take it easy in my last two weeks at school, and so that happened after having mobility issues I called it a rest for myself to get ready for our bunny's arrival.

So before buying anything for the baby, I did a long research from asking my own mama, friends and searching online for what's important and what's not.  As for the baby's hospital bag after my research, I started packing our bags a while ago.  It is recommended that you start packing your baby's bag and yours around 3-4 weeks from your due date.  

So, let me tell you about what I packed for our baby's hospital bag and what I thought would be necessary for her.  

1. Bag (I used the baby's changing bag)
2. 3 onesies
3. 2 sleep suits
4. 2 pairs of socks
5. 1 pair of soft booties
6. 1 pair of scratch mittens
7. A warm hat
8. 3 burp cloths
9. 10 nappies
10. Water wipes (I have read so much about this product and decided to try it as it's 99% water!)
11. Baby's blanket (I decided to purchase another cellular one, as I though this one is quite thick to use indoors)
12. Baby's take home outfit
13. Baby's first cuddly toy
14. Pram/snow suit (if your baby is coming in a cold/not so warm month)

That's what I though is the most important to pack, I've seen people over pack adding (nail clippers, baby toiletries, loads of clothes etc), it depends after all on what are you comfortable to be carrying, and what you think you will be using in the hospital.   

It is definitely better to over pack than under pack, but don't get too anxious about it.  Happy packing now, and I am pretty sure you will be packing and unpacking daily when your due date is around the corner.
