3rd Trimester

What's in your overnight bag?

Starting to get my stuff together a month early....

Slippers
flip flops (shower)
toiletries
Pj's/bra/underwear
coming home outfit myself & baby
gum/mints
make-up bag
phone/camera

anything else?   

 

Re: What's in your overnight bag?

  • I haven't packed mine yet but DH's is done lol  He works an hour and a half away from the hospital so if he's at work I don't want him to have to stop by the house to grab anything.

     

    I do plan on putting the following items in mine :

    toiletries (since I'm picky about my hair products)

    slippers

    PJ's that I don't care if they get ruined

    a comfy maxi dress to go home in

    powder and mascara... no sense in bringing a ton of make up since I know I won't feel like putting it on anyway

    tablet and charger in case I'm in labor for a while. plus it can double as a camera so I'm not bringing a ton of things with me.

    hand sanitizer for guests to use

    breast pads and maxi pads  

     

     

    I think that's it.... I always pack light for trips anyway so this seems sufficient

  • Maybe a towel of your own! When I was in the hospital they provided me with such a small one.
  • Loading the player...
  • just ask for extra towls that;s what I do
  • Lanolin!!!

    Also change for the vending machine, snacks like Lara Bars, a power strip since I plan on having my phone and computer....hubby will be out of the country so I may need to charge while I talk since Face Time drains my battery and I'll probably be texting a lot.

    Clean socks, extra pillow, robe.... 

     Also, my flip flops were my "slippers".  I didn't wanna pack both this time since I didn't use them last time.

  • bring your chargers for everything (phone/cameras etc)

    baby wipes ( unless you know for sure your hospital provides them.  Ours didn't)

    I think you could start packing an overnight bag for yourself at this point since you never know if you might get sick or have a complication that could put you in the hospital overnight before delivery.

    Look above for good suggestions. Typically the baby doesn't really need anything during the hospital stay except for an outfit to go home with. Our hospital, and most others, provide diapers, wipes, blankets, nasal syringes, hats, etc.

    The hospital will provide hand sanitizer and or soap and sink in each room for visitors to wash their hands. Also the hospital will provide you with maxi pads unless you prefer your own.

     

    good to know. thanks! we are the first of our friends to have a baby so I'm learning these things as I go

    What I used:

    Birthing ball
    iHome and labor music
    Robe
    Chapstick
    Water bottle
    Phone charger
    Camera and charger
    Shampoo
    Conditioner
    Makeup
    Glasses
    Lanolin
    Underwear
    Nursing bra
    Breast pads
    Newborn sleeper for DD

    Wore home maternity leggings and a tunic tank.

    What I didn't use:

    Slippers [wore my flops]
    Birth plan
    Hypnobirthing stuff book/papers
    Shower cap
    Ear buds
    Baby book [forgot to ask for feetprint]
    Hair dryer
    Flat iron
    iPad
    Yoga pants [too hot]
    Nursing tank
    Tucks pads [provided]
    Bathing suit top
    Labor snacks
    3m sleeper, onesies, mittens for DD [it was warm, and she fit better in the NB outfit]

    A lot of the labor stuff I had planned to use [bathing suit for tub, shower cap for shower, hypnobirthing stuff, ear buds, birth plan] didn't get used because I showed up at the hospital in transition and at 9cm. I wasn't in any state to think logically about anything, lol. I wanted nothing to do with food or tub/shower, I just wanted baby out.

  • In addition to what other people mentioned I brought numbers to call to notify my company/insurance that the baby was born to get him registered for insurance/notify them of the start of STD.  It was so much easier to do while in the hospital than once we got home and were on our own.

    here's what I actually used 

    clothes for me & extra clothes for DH

    clothes of DS (coming home outfit and they used the extra onesies I brought while we were there) 

    chapstick

    camera

    phone chargers

    I think that was it...the hospital provided pads and those sexy mesh undies (which are actually very comfortable LOL)

  • for me, eye mask and ear plugs are a must. I cannot stand the beeping machines. 

    I'm going to ask my hospital if I'm allowed a small air freshener in apple too.

    NOTE: My twins will not be rooming in, so ear plugs won't change my ability to hear them
