Oh, the hospital bag. This is my second time to pack my bags for a baby hospital stay. The first time I did absolutely no planning. I packed like I would a weekend trip… and let’s just say I’m thankful there were people to run to the store for me.
Because I’m having my baby during the Covid-19 crisis, I’ve had to plan extra carefully since only my husband can be in the hospital with me.
I’ve broken my list into category by person (me, baby, dad) and by what I can pack in advance and what I need to pack right before leaving the house (am I the only one who want to have their own toothbrush and hairbrush when away from home?)
Congratulations, mama! I hope this list (and my mistakes the first time) help you to have an amazing

Fill your Diaper Bag with the following items. I love my Freshly Picked Classic Diaper Bag in Butterscotch.
The hospital will provide diapers and wipes but I went ahead and added some so that it would be ready for our first outing.
Some of these items can be packed in advance while others you’ll need to pack right before leaving.
