First pack your hospital bag for yourself.

  1. A robe. A comfortable robe is one of the best postpartum clothing items out there.
  2. Toiletries. Don’t forget these!
  3. Comfortable clothes. If you plan on breastfeeding after delivery, pack a nursing bra or tank in your bag.
  4. Drinks. Pack a reusable water bottle and, if you want something more than water, an electrolyte drink, like Gatorade or coconut water.
  5. An extra-long cell phone charging cord. Babylist parents could not recommend this enough. Hospital beds are notoriously far away from an electrical outlet, and you’ll want a fully charged phone for all the pictures you are about to take of your new baby.
  6. Pillows and a bath towel. As it turns out, hospital towels are the exact opposite of luxurious hotel towels—thin, scratchy and entirely too small.
  7. Adult diapers. The hospital will hook you up with pads and those mesh underwear, but many Babylist parents said adult diapers, like Depends, were more comfortable and felt more secure. 
  8.  Bluetooth speaker and Spotify playlist. Playing music during labor can be an asset for some.
