Your next trip to the hospital will be a life changer. Get a checklist of essentials – comforts for mom, gifts for the birthing staff, and baby's first outfit – so you will be prepared for the little things and can stay focused on the big things.
Anatomy of a hospital bag
Have your partner pack so they know where everything is (mom’s going to be busy)
Stuff for mom: flip flops, going-home outfit for mom (believe it or not, you’ll still look 5-6 months pregnant), nursing bra, tennis balls in a sock (for massaging mom during labor), extra bag for gifts received, toiletry bag, treats for hospital staff.
Stuff for baby: going-home outfit, receiving blanket, wipes
You got this!
