I posted this picture on instagram of me packing our hospital bags and I got lots of requests to share what I packed! I haven’t delivered yet, so I don’t know if I over packed or missed some things, but we will see soon! I just took recommendations from friends and online. So here’s what I did!

For Me:

·         Nursing friendly Pajamas   I packed this exact set (ON SALE!) and I LOVE them! I also love these, these and these as well!
·         Going home outfit-loose Tee and sweat pants or Dress  I packed this dress because its so comfortable and it’s too hot outside for anything else!
·         Robe  The robe I packed is sold out, but I love this one and this one (on sale)!
·         Warm Socks These are the socks I packed because they’re warm and cute!
·         Flip-flops for shower I bought both mine and my husbands from walmart for 98 cents!
·         Nursing Bra I packed this one and I love it!
·         Nursing Tank I packed this one and wish I would have bought this one. 
·         Belly Bandit I’ve heard great things about this and can’t wait to try it!
·         Makeup
·         Nursing Pads The Lactation Specialist I took a class from recommended these pads. They’re reusable and lessen the risk of infection
·         Nipple Cream This is the one I packed. My friends recommended it. 
·         Comb/brush  I swear by this brush. I couldn’t live without it. 
·         Hair ties
·         Toothbrush and toothpaste
·         Shampoo and Conditioner (travel size)

·         Makeup Wipes (travel size)
·         Dry Shampoo (travel size)

·         Extension cord

For Baby:
Packed in her Diaper Bag (It’s on sale! and it’s never on sale!)
·         2-3 outfits in newborn-0-3 Months
·         Mittens
·         Hat   I got the all white hat on etsy
·         2-3 swaddles
·         1 blanket
·         Burp rag  I just packed a few cloth diapers for this. I’m pretty sure I won’t need them and the hospital will have something.
·         Boppy I’ve heard you want to pack this if you’re planning on breast feeding. This is the cover I got. 
·         Nursing Cover  I got a covered goods 3-in-1 nursing cover
·         Wubbanub  I don’t really know if I’ll need this it’s just too cute not to pack!

·         Photo ID’s and Insurance Cards
·         Carseat and base I did lots of research and decided this carseat/stroller combo was the best price for the safety and functionality (use a 20% coupon!)
·         Cardstock for hand and foot prints
·         Breastfeeding Class notes I took this virtual breastfeeding class and it was phenomenal! I also love that I can watch it as many times as I need!

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

    Awesome list! I'd recommend more snacks for dad, and a pillow and blanket in the car that he could grab if needed. Our hospital had everything for me, but my poor husband could barely get a decent pillow!

    Thank you sharing!! Where did you get your makeup/toiletries bag? I love the color.

    Thanks for sharing! Your suggestions have got me going crazy adding things to my list. Love your diaper bag as well.. thinking I may go with that one for my baby boy!

    Aww!! I'm getting so excited for you guys!! 😀

    Love the list and the links! I definitely recommend a good pillow and comfy blanket for dad, I know I wanted the room super cold after giving birth and my hubby was freezing and didn't want to ask for a blanket. Lol Also, that same travel system is on Amazon for much cheaper and if you have prime, shipping is free 🙂
