Maternity Bag Checklist

I’m a member of many mums groups and this is one question I see asked lots. I can remember when I had my first baby I took everything apart from the kitchen sink into the hospital with me. 6 babies down I kind of know what I need and I what I don’t. But one thing to remember is that if you forget something a member of your family can easily bring it. I wanted to make a Maternity Bag Checklist for new mamas to try and help condense their bags but also give them ideas of what has helped me over the years. Obviously, I may like things that you don’t so this is just a simple guide 🙂 If you look at the bottom I have a handy checklist that you can use as you go, I do hope you find this helpful.

    My friend is near her due date and has been panicking that she keeps forgetting things in preparation for her little ones birth. I will send her the maternity checklist so that she can feel more prepared!

    Looks like you’ve got everything covered here. Sometimes I see people’s hospital bag lists and it seems like they’re taking everything but the kitchen sink! Xxx

    Great list, though we didn’t think about the nipple cream. And in the end we didn’t even use it!
