What’s In My Hospital Bag?
– Car seat / Capsule. We actually chose to hire a car capsule for 3 months. I used a service called Capsule King! They come to you, install, teach you about the capsule and send authorised details to RTA so you are registered to being fitted by a professional. At the end of your hire period, they come and collect capsule in whatever state it’s in. Yup no need to clean. They also will fit your personal carseat at a small extra cost.
– 1- 2 swaddles. I’ve been told the hospital supplies a few of these during your stay, but I want to have a few of my own. I’ve also packed a baby knitted blanket for car ride home.
– 2- 3 outfits with socks and hats. I’m taking 2x newborn sizes and 1x 0-3 month.
– 1 x Sleep swaddle sack.
1-2 sets of PJs with buttons down front.
slippers or socks with grips for walking around the hospital room.
A pack of regular underwear
2 x pairs track pants, leggings.
2 x Baggy boyfriend T-shirts
Cardigan and Jumper
Phone and laptop charger
Extension cord- some people advised us to bring one since outlets aren’t always in the most convenient places
Makeup and travel-sized toiletries (include cleansing facial wipes, lip balm, shampoo and conditioner)
Going home outfit-Leggings, denim shirt and winter coat.
