Packing a Hospital Bag: A Printable Checklist

Baby on the way? Here is what to pack in your hospital bag!

If you’re a first time expecting mama, you may be wondering what you will need to pack for your stay in the hospital. I know I was.  I also knew the last thing I wanted to be doing while in labor was worrying that I forgot something important at home.

With this in mind, I’ve put together a Hospital Bag Checklist for expecting moms. It looks something like this:

Printable Hospital Bag Checklist

How to Use Your Hospital Bag Checklist

  • When you are in the middle of your 3rd trimester (or before that if you are getting antsy) print off the Hospital Bag Checklist
  • Pack what you won’t need in the next few weeks
  • Lay the list on top of the bag
  • When you go into labor, run through it right before you leave and make sure you’ve packed everything on the list. By doing this you can feel assured you haven’t forgotten anything at home that you’ll really be needing!

I for sure plan to use this guy for my second round in the hospital.

This could also be a fun little goodie to print off and attach to a baby shower gift. A new mama will appreciate it, I promise!

    At least one hospital I know of apparently did not have diaper rash ointment.
