The due date is approaching and it is time to pack your maternity hospital bag. A bag like this should contain essentials a mother and her newborn baby will need while they are in the maternity ward - and even if it's only for a few days, you will need quite a lot of essentials.
To fit everything and conveniently organize, Peekaboo Baby suggests purchasing a special hospital bag from the best brands like OiOi, Storksak & Skip Hop. A large selection of bags of different sizes, designs and functionality will allow you to choose the perfect option for your big day.
Most checklists for packing a maternity hospital bag distinguish four sets of essentials: things necessary for childbirth, things that a mother will need in the postpartum period, things for a newborn baby and things for going home. You should prepare a bag with everything you need at 30-33 weeks of pregnancy, since the baby might arrive earlier than expected, it is better to be prepared in advance.
The list of must-have items for the delivery suite includes:
Hospital paperwork, ID, and insurance card;
Bathrobe that will come in handy during labor and if you stay in the hospital afterward;
Comfortable clothes to wear during your hospital stay. Consider a front-opening style if you plan to breastfeed and carry an extra outfit for home - check our post pregnancy wear collection;
Toiletries and care products;
Phone and entertainment such as books, a tablet, or a music player;
Bodysuits, socks and booties for a newborn;
Going-home outfit for the little one.
This is just a basic set, you may also include cosmetics, a comfortable maternity pillow, snacks, nightgowns - anything you need. Each hospital provides a specific list of necessary things for mom, birth partner and baby. Obviously, to transport such a number of things, you need a capacious and durable duffle bag. Peekaboo Baby offers convenient hospital bags made of high quality, safe materials, in which you can store everything you need. With multiple pockets of different sizes and separate packing pouches, you can organize essentials in an easy and convenient manner so that you can quickly find what you need from the bag.
