What to pack in your

HOSPITAL BAG

EXCITING, NERVE-WRACKING, UNPREDICTABLE… YOUR DUE DATE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER.
There's nothing more exciting than packing little sleepsuits in your hospital bag knowing your new baby will be wearing them very soon.

TOP TIPS

  • Choose a Hospital/Changing bag with plenty of handy and practical compartments. These will be perfect for you and your baby's essentials.
  • It is recommended that you should have your bag ready from 36 weeks.
  • The trick with your hospital bag is not to pack too much. Mainly because there is limited space in maternity wards so you don't want to cram it with bags and suitcases. Mixing practical items with a few home comforts can help make you feel ready for your baby's birth.
  • Most women don't stay in hospital for very long after they've given birth, so try not to go overboard when packing baby clothes. Think of the weather and pack plenty of sleepsuits as they are the easiest and most comfortable outfit for your new baby to wear.
