Hospital Bag Checklist: Mommy Bag

Instantly shop the items in my bag HERE

I'm 39 weeks today and Luka is officially FULL term! With my unicornuate uterus, I'm astonished that I've made it this far, so as you can imagine, I've had my mommy bag packed for awhile. However, we went to the hospital last week for a labor check and I realized I didn't quite have everything together. Even though it ended up being a trial run, I'm thankful for the chance to really make sure we are ready for the big day. I shared what's in my baby bag on my Instagram, but since I have a few links to share for what's in my mommy bag, I decided to create a blog post for this as well. Dad also has his own bag filled with his clothes, toiletries, and entertainment.

What's in my

mommy bag?

  • Wallet with Photo ID and Insurance Card for registration purposes (if you have copies of your prenatal record, bring it. However, most places use electronic charting so usually no need to bring copies).

  • Nursing Tank Tops - Mainly for leaving the hospital or if I feel the need to wear some sort of regular clothes during my hospital stay. These 3-pack racer back tanks had cute designs and prints, so decided to try them out. I got an X-large.

  • Flip flops for the shower and for walking in general since I will probably be swollen from the fluids administered during labor.

  • Adult diapers - everyone swears these work so much better than mesh undies and pads. I got an X-large.

  • Hospital gown - let's be real, those hospital gowns don't do anything for plus size bodies. I'm packing my own for the postpartum period. This one offers easy access for nursing. I got an XX-large.

  • 2 pairs of leggings that I already own - I don't foresee jeans in my near future

  • Mini cooler - our hospital room will have a fridge and microwave, so I packed mini bottles of water, gatorade, ginger ale, and juice. Also various snacks.

  • Toiletries - don't forget your regulars like toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, face wash, deodorant, and lotion. I also packed light make up for postpartum pics depending on my mood.

Would you add anything to this list? Let me know below!
