*Hospital Bag Checklist*

Well... it has been on my to do list for a LONG time. I have checked so many different pins on Pinterest about hospital bag packing. I found a few that I wanted to use. So... as I searched and read and searched and read, I made a big list. It had no organization to it. It was lengthy. AND YES, I know... I won't use 85% of it. But... I am a planner and I like to be prepared. If I don't use it... no big deal... but in the case that I do need it... I want to make sure that I have it available and John knows where it is. I appreciate all the added ideas and things that may or may not be worth packing. I bought a few things at Wal-Mart that I didn't have yet. I am planning on getting it all packed and organized as soon as possible. I am running out of time and I am already out of energy! I am excited to pack... but hoping I have most of the items so I don't have to spend any more money. For example... new pajamas. I know that I have a TON that I don't wear, so I am not concerned if they get ruined. I just want them to fit... hehe.

I am also a bit annoyed (and I shouldn't be) that I can't pack the toiletries. How frustrating is that... the last thing I am going to be thinking about when battling contractions is if I packed my shampoo and face wash. At least I have a list to follow in between contractions.... or John can follow. :)

I did pick up a few items at the store that I know we will need and I won't want to go to the store and buy after little baby Edmonds arrives. I read a few blogs about a few things to have a supply of before we come back home. Here are a few things that are on my list to buy and or have purchased:
1. Toilet Paper--CHECK
2. Paper Towels--CHECK
3. Dog Food/Treats
4. Paper Plates
5. Paper Bowls
6. Plastic Utensils
7. Plastic Cups
8. Laundry Detergent and Softener--CHECK
9. Dishwasher Soap
10. Tissues--CHECK
11. Healthy Snacks
12. Long/Overnight Pads (so daddy doesn't have to make that trip)--CHECK
13. Post-Partum Medical Needs
      -Tylenol--CHECK
      -breast pump and parts
      -Ibuprofen--CHECK
      -Prenatal Vitamins (get refill early if possible)
      -Nursing Pads--CHECK
      -Lanolin Cream--CHECK
      -Dermoplast Spray (I could only find it at Walgreens)--CHECK
      -Dulco-Ease Pink--CHECK
14. I have announcements picked out. (I will make my own, but ready to just add details and pictures)
15. Address Labels for announcements
16. Stamps
17. Return address stamp (I am determined to get one of these!!)

Here are a few pictures of the chaos that was my hospital bag list. I made it nice on the computer so if you need it, you can print it out! Enjoy!

(If you want an emailed copy of this sent to you, please just comment below and I will send it your way! I would love for people to be able to use it and not have to do all the research and organizing I did. I tried to make it fun to look at too. hehe.)

Off to pack my life away! Whew! I am exhausted, but ready to be ready!

  1. Wow! I have followed most of your teaching ideas, and I'm so happy that you are sharing your experiences as a mommy to be. The checklist looks very comprehensive! I really like the fact that you included the thank you notes in your list, but I wonder if you will have time to write those. ;) Wishing you luck!!!

    1. Thanks! The only reason it is pretty comprehensive is because I know myself... and I would forget something important and then be mad about it!. I wrote all the ones from my showers already, so I hope that the thank you notes can be written if anyone brings us anything to the hospital. Daddy can always write them... hehe :) Thanks for following!
