Free Hospital Bag Printable

Hello everyone!

I can't believe that its almost time for me to welcome my little guy into the world. I can't be more happy. I just can't wait to hold him in my arms and cuddle with him. When I started this blog, around this time last year, I would never have thought that I would be anticipating welcoming the most perfect, beautiful little guy in the world to me.

How the hospital bag checklist was born...

As a lot of you know, I'm a planner. I love lists and having a plan. And let me just say this, I get a little on edge when my plan doesn't play out. But, I am trying to remember that giving birth is not something that goes according to plan. However, I can make sure that I have everything I need packed away and waiting by the door for when I need it.

When I started packing my hospital bag, I was kind of lost at what to pack. My OBGYN had provided a small list of things to bring to the hospital, but I knew that I needed more to be fully prepared. So, I decided to sit down and really brainstorm about what I need to bring along for this joyous adventure. That's how this printable was born.

Here's what I included in my checklist:

For Mom:

-Night gown
-Comfortable bra and underwear
-Nursing Bra
-Nipple cream
-Nursing Pads
-Photo ID
-Insurance Card
-Hospital Paperwork
-Marriage Liscense
-Birth Plan
-Going Home Clothes
-Foldable bag

For Dad:

-Comfortable clothes
-Photo ID


-Cellphones and chargers
-Laptop or tablet
-Playlist and speakers
-MP3 Player
-Camera/video camera
-Extra batteries

Toiletries for the Parents:

-Shampoo and conditioner
-Hair Brush
-Hair ties
-Make up
-Glasses, contacts, and solution

For Baby:

-3-4 outfits
-Baby Powder
-Car Seat (installed)
-Nursing Pillow
-Baby Book
