Packing my hospital bags

There are way too many what-to-pack-in-your-hospital-bag lists online so I don't want to go through them and fall into the trap of over-packing or under-packing. I use the straightforward method: my common sense. Haha.

Anyway, just for fun, here's my list:

Mommy-and-baby bag (blue-n-white Cath Kidston bag)

  • Birthing gown (I bring a front button-down cotton nightgown)
  • Maternity pads (just in case)
  • Disposable panties (very important!)
  • Pyjamas (2 sets)
  • Bottom healing spray (Earth Mama Angel Baby)
  • Toiletries (Mustela dermo-cleasing, Hydra Bebe & vitamin barrier cream)
  • Going-home clothes (nursing dresses)
  • Nursing bras
  • Breast pads (just in case)
  • Nipple butter (Earth Mama Angel Baby)
  • Ring sling
  • Newborn sleep-suits, hats, mittens, booties
  • Newborn disposable diapers
  • Newborn cloth diapers
  • Swaddles/blankets

My handbag (red Longchamp bag)

  • Birth plan (approved by my ob-gyn)
  • Hospital appointment card
  • Wallet (identification card, money, credit card)
  • Mobile phone
  • Mobile phone charger

Hubby's bag (black backpack)

  • T-shirts
  • Pants
  • Underwear
  • Towel
  • Socks
  • Toiletries
  • Mobile phone charger
  • Power bank
  • Essential oil dewdrop diffuser
  • Lavender essential oil
  • PanAway essential oil

Food bag (brown eco bag)

  • Cookies
  • Instant oatmeal drinks
  • Oatmeal bars

  • Baby's car seat is ready with newborn body support

And now, we wait.
