My Hospital Bag Packing List

As of yesterday I’m officially 38 weeks! The countdown until baby boy’s arrival is ON. I also finally finished packing my hospital bag after a few weeks of procrastination. Nick’s bag is also ready to go along with little man’s bag of outfits and hospital essentials. I’m sure there are some things we’re bringing that we won’t end up using, but as a first time momma I’d rather be safe than sorry! I’m going to try my best to update this post after delivery to let y’all know what we actually ended up using 🙂

WHAT I’M WEARING TO THE HOSPITAL // White Tee | White Bralette | Blue Lounge Pants (similar in stock style) | Adidas Sneakers | Stud Earrings | Mommy Bag (comes in 4 colors!) | Similar Rose Gold Toiletry Bag 

This is the outfit I plan on wearing to the hospital! I’m going to keep it comfy in lounge pants, a bralette and oversized t-shirt.

OK so here is everything we’re bringing! I basically just read as many hospital bag checklists as I could find and pulled together what I thought made the most sense for us. Nick and I are each bringing our own separate bags (I’m obsessed with my Mommy bag!) + I am using this diaper bag to keep all of lil man’s things.

HOSPITAL BAG PACKING LIST
