Check List for Post Partum Kit

December 6, 2013

Below are my check list for Post Partum Kit that I will bring to hospital.

For me after the birth

  1. A going-home outfit. You’ll need loose comfortable clothes to wear while you’re in hospital and for the journey home. It will take a while for your belly to go down, so you’ll be still wearing maternity clothes when you come home – sorry!
  2. Nursing bras. Take two or three.
  3. Breast pads
  4. Breast cream
  5. Maxi pads (sanitary napkins). Bring a couple of packs.
  6. Nightshirt wrap or t-shirt. Front-opening shirts are useful in the early days of breastfeeding.
  7. Toiletries (same as labor kit)
  8. Old or cheap underwear or disposable panties. Don’t bring your best ones as they will get messy.

For my baby

  1. An infant car seat. Some hospitals won’t let you leave by car without one.
  2. Car seat cover
  3. One outfit for the trip home (all-in-one stretchy outfits are easiest).
  4. Two or three sleepers for baby to wear while you are in hospital.
  5. Baby blanket. Take a warm one if the weather is cold.
  6. New born diapers
  7. New born wipes
  8. 4 Receiving blankets
  9. One pair of socks or booties.
  10. Hat
  11. Jacket or snowsuit for winter babies.
  12. Burp cloths or receiving blankets
  13. Alarm Clock for feeding timing
  14. Birth Registration form?
  15. Baby care book
