Some hospitals provide baby with all the required toiletries, but the same cannot be said for all hospitals.

The goodies listed here are for ALL mommies and include everything that you might need in your hospital/baby bag, from toiletries to your newborns FIRST EVER outfit.

It is recommended to have your hospital bag packed, when you are around 34 weeks pregnant, just in case baby decides to arrive early 😉

For baby:

  • Cotton wool
  • Surgical spirits
  • Soap\body wash
  • Wet wipes
  • Nappies
  • Bum cream
  • Earbuds
  • Glycerine
  • Baby powder
  • Vaseline
  • Colic drops
  • Gripe Water
  • Baby bottle, formula, sterilizer and bottle brush (for non breastfeeding moms and just in case breastfeeding doesn’t work out, which is relatively common)
  • Pacifier/Dummy
  • Face cloth
  • Bath towel
  • Receiving blanket
  • Wrap blanket
  • Romper
  • Vest
  • Socks
  • Beanie & mittens

For mommy:
