What’s in My Hospital Bag

September 16, 2015

I’m currently preparing for Harper’s arrival tomorrow.  I can’t believe the day is finally here! I’m super excited and a tad be nervous.  Follow me on Instagram (@babyshopa) and on Snapchat (babyshopa) for updates.  In the meantime, I thought I would share what I packed for my hospital bag.  Since I’m having a c-section, I will be there for 3 to 4 days.

I found this super fly Nicole Miller rolling bag at Tuesday Morning.  It was only $30!  Perfect for the hospital and weekend travel.

The picture only represents a fraction of what’s in my bag.


  • Nursing tank and bra
  • Robe for walking the halls
  • Maternity leggings
  • Maxi dress to wear home
  • Hoodie to stay warm
  • Non-skid socks

Personal items:

  • Toiletries
  • Lip balm because hospitals are very dry
  • Hair bonnet (Silky Wraps turban pictured)
  • Brush
  • Glasses
  • Id and Insurance info


  • Phone and charger
  • Portable charger
  • Camera
  • Ear buds so I wont have to hold the phone
  • Ipad in case I want to watch movies

For Baby:

  • Outfit to wear home
  • Hats and bows
  • Blankets
  • Car seat

I’m sure I’m forgetting something.  I decided to skip packing makeup.  I tried to make myself up after I had Peyton and I look like I was going to be admitted to a mental institution.  It’s not worth it.  I recently shared tips on What to Wear from the Hospital (HERE).  I’m planning to wear a maxi dress home.  Am I missing something?

Thank you guys for all the prayers and well wishes for delivery.  I can’t wait to introduce Harper to you guys!

    Good luck with everything! I just went through a c-section delivery 10 days ago and the one thing I forgot to pack in my bag (that you haven’t mentioned) was underwear…panties to be exact. 🙂

    I just came back to read this post again. I feel like I need to start pulling things together just in case… My last one came earlier than expected and I didn’t have a bag ready. I don’t want that to happen this time. This is a great list, very reasonable! I also never used makeup and will be skipping packing it this time.
