What I Packed In My Hospital Bag

June 18, 2021

 On Sunday I will be 37 weeks, meaning Baby Boy could theoretically come any day now! So I thought it was about time I packed up our hospital bag so that we are as prepared as possible whenever he decides to make his arrival. I have added to and taken things off my list of things to pack since I was about 12 weeks pregnant, but I think I have finally gotten it narrowed down to the necessities and a few "just in case" items. (+ a few "because I want to" items hehe)

for Mom & Dad

1. Two pair of nursing-friendly pajamas - my favorite from Amazon, they're so soft!

2. Nursing Bra - I love this one because it is sports bra style, so no clasp in the back

3. Supportive & Comfortable underwear

4. Going home outfit - this old navy t-shirt dress is perfect to slip into and still feel put together as I leave + it will be perfect in this heat!

5. Slides

6. A change of clothes for hubs

7. Basic cotton sports bra - I plan on having a water birth as long as everything goes well, so this is what I will wear for that

8. Lightweight Robe

Postpartum Care

1. Frida Mom Instant Ice Maxi Pads

2. Earth Mama Organics Nipple Butter

3. Frida Mom Peri Bottle

4. Earth Mama Organics Herbal Perineal Spray

5. Medela Disposable Nursing Pads

6. Disposable Underwear

7. Maxi Pads

for Baby

I may have overpacked on some things for him but I don't know what he will be comfortable in considering the heat (& no a/c in Germany) so I would rather be safe than sorry.

1. Bibs pacifiers

2. Gown & Hat - one of my favorite brands from Amazon

3. Lightweight swaddle blankets

4. Hush Portable Sound Machine

5. Mittens

6. Going Home Outfit - the one I packed I can't like so I linked a similar one

7. Footie Pajamas

8. Basic Onesies

9. Name Blanket


1. Mini fan - this is actually a portable fan I bought for baby for on the go but I figured considering the circumstances it will come in handy in the hospital

2. Vava Baby Night Light

3. Snacks - clif bars, fruit snacks, boom chicka pop, and goldfish to be exact

4. 10ft phone chargers

5. Boppy Pillow

6. Disposable Masks (covid, amiright?)

7. Camera & Polaroid Camera

8. Converter plugs (living in Germany, iykyk)

9. Airpods

10. Pillow Pet (if you know me, you know)

Personal Care

1. Tula Eye Balm

2. Tula Blurring Primer

3. Concealer

4. Waterproof Mascara

5. Hair Brush

6. Hair Ties

7. Deoderant

8. Chapstick

9. Skincare

10. Body Wash

11. Tooth Brush & Tooth Paste

12. Vitamins

I packed everything in my Vera Bradley Grand Weekender, I have had this for years and it is the best bag! And I used packing cubes to keep everything organized inside.

There is a good chance I over-packed but I would rather be safe than sorry. I curated this list by watching lots of youtube videos and reading blog posts similar to this one and used my best judgment based on my preferences. I will be sure to update you all on what I actually used and if there was anything I was missing. I can't believe this is right around the corner!!
