Hospital Bag Checklist for Mothers - Polka Tots
Maternity bag for hospital checklist
Ideally, you should have a hospital bag prepared between weeks 32 and 35 of your pregnancy.
At the start of your third trimester, or around the 28-week mark, you should start packing. You should use this checklist to make sure you don't miss anything essential for the arrival of your new baby!
Diaper Bag: For every mother, a bag that holds all the maternity essentials is a must-have. It is important that a bag is spacious and large enough to hold all the necessary items.
Swaddle: You should choose a cotton muslin swaddle for your baby to ensure they have as much warm snuggle as possible.
Baby Rompers: Several sets of baby rompers made out of super soft cotton will be super gentle on your little one's skin & will help them look super cute.
Washcloth: Muslin cotton washcloth should be used to wipe your baby. As children's skin is very delicate, make sure you use a washcloth that is soft and safe to use on them.
Car Seat: You can't hold your infant on your lap, so make sure they're safe & take them home in an infant car seat or a newborn car seat. Carry cots are highly recommended when carrying newborns.
Cloth Diapers: Cloth diapers are ideal for a baby's sensitive skin. They wick moisture away from the skin and help prevent rashes.
