Packing the Perfect Organic Hospital Bag - A Checklist

Posted on

There are tons of things to do when you’re preparing for a new baby - a well-stocked hospital bag is a simple way to make those first days together even more enjoyable. We have created a hospital bag checklist of essential items that will help you have a better birthing experience.

For Moms -

Important Papers - Put your photo ID, insurance info, hospital forms and birth plan (if you have one) in a dedicated compartment of hospital bag.

Pajamas - Pack a warm robe, headband, ponytail holder and organic PJ set for extra comfort

Personal Items - Gather your favorite toiletries and personal items: hairbrush, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, face wash, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and contact lenses.

Organic Undergarments - Make sure to pack a Nursing Bra along with extra pairs of organic socks and underwear

Moisturizing Products - Hospitals are notoriously dry so make sure to pack your favorite organic lotion and lip balm to stay soft.

Organic Snacks - Hospitals are limited in their organic snack options. Make sure to pack some of your favorite healthy snacks to keep you energized.

For Baby -

Going Home Outfit - Pack a soft organic outfit that your new baby can wear home from the hospital. Our Organic Convertible Romper is perfect for bringing baby home.

Swaddling Blankets - Grab extra-soft organic swaddling blankets to swaddle your new baby in. Our Organic Swaddling Blankets are great to have on hand.

Extra Accessories - There are lots of little things that can be useful with a new baby. Don’t forget a pair of organic mittens, baby booties and a soft hat.

Baby Book - Most new moms run out of time to fill-in their baby book, because time moves so fast. Take it to the hospital and mark down all of your new moments.
