Hospital Bag

I drastically over packed 1st time round! And I packed the WRONG stuff! My poor hubby wound up
moving stuff back and forth between hospital and house (I had Jack on a Bank Holiday Weekend so I was there from Thu night to Mon morn...) 2nd time I still took more than I needed for even a 1 night stay. 3rd time, I went minimalist! And it worked! So I'm sticking to the same packing list for this, my last baby.

I'm planning on a holdall or small overnight case for me, and a well packed change bag for baby. If I can't fit it into 2 bags, I don't need it!



  • 1 pair of PJs, lightweight coz the hosp is REALLY warm, and dark in case of (blush) leakage...
  • 1 pair slippers
  • A pack of BIG knickers, also dark fabric
  • A nursing bra
  • Something comfy (Maternity jeans & lose top good for breastfeeding) to come home in


  • Maternity pads
