What’s in my Hospital bag…


I have seen so many pregnant people online doing little videos on the Instagram’s and posts on their blog’s about what they have packed in their hospital bags and I just find it so helpful and a good read etc. I have seen several who have packed for their 2nd child and have fine tuned their bags etc. It’s very easy to over pack so this time I have tried to just take what I need and hope that we won’t be in hospital long.

Baby’s Bag

  • x3 white newborn vests
  • x2 plain white newborn baby grows
  • x2 newborn babygrows (Born in 2020 one and white velour one with stars on it)
  • x2 knitted white hats
  • x2 Muslins for feeding
  • x1 Swaddle blanket with Rainbows print
  • x1-2 white blankets (Thinking more so to cover baby in carseat if coming home in the night as depends on weather but better to have one)
  • x1 pack of cotton pads to use for bum changes with warm water
  • x1 pack of water wipes (just incase super messy but would rather use the above)
  • handful of nappy sacks
  • x1 pack of size 1 pampers nappies
  • x3 individual Aptamil bottles with sterilised teats (Again I intend to Breastfeed but had seen these and they are perfect as a substitute or if baby really needed formula etc) 

So that’s Baby’s bag sorted it doesn’t look like loads but from what I remember with Polly once she was dressed in her outfit I didn’t actually change her again apart from her nappies so hopefully one of those babygrows will fit little bubs.

My Hospital Bag

  • x2 Breastfeeding bras ( I know one might get messy from baby and skin to skin etc)
  • x2 t-shirt style dresses
  • a super light dressing gown
  • a breastfeeding nightie to change into once baby is here
  • slippers
  • flip flops
  • camera
  • phone charger
  • coming home outfit, which currently is a long floaty maxi dress just for comfort and because hospitals tend to be super warm especially in the summer.

Then the following items I’ve popped into 3 clear makeup style bags for easy access or for Hubby to get me something out of.

  • Makeup remover wipes
  • Travel toothbrush
  • Travel toothpaste
  • Anti bac hand gel


  • Gaviscon (tablet form)
  • Deorant
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Hairbrush and few hairbands
  • Shower sponge
  • Shower gel


  • Maternity pads
  • Breast pads
  • Nipple cream
  • Bottoms up spray for cooling down there 🙂

The last things that need to go in there are a bottle of water and a few snacks but I have 4 weeks left so of course need to be done closer to the time but I at least feel organised now ekes. Not long now.


Much love

Sophie & Bump
