Hospital Bag Check List - Newborn Photography Brisbane

It's such an exciting time as you near your estimate due date and one thing that gets us really excited is packing the hospital bags. But what will we need? If this is your first baby the process can be daunting knowing what to take and what you will need. I've made this hospital bag checklist for yourself and your baby to make the process much easier.

For Your Hospital Bag

  • Maternity Pads

  • Nipple Cream

  • Breast Pads

  • Maternity Underwear

  • Supportive Maternity Bra

  • Comfortable Pyjamas and Slippers

  • Feeding Singlets/Tops

  • Comfortable Pants - Maternity ones are great with the support for your tummy still

  • Toiletries - Toothbrush, hair brush, shampoo, body wash, make up etc

  • Phone Charger

  • A good lip balm - those lips get dry during labour


For Baby's Hospital Bag

  • Newborn Nappies

  • Baby Wipes

  • Onesies - no matter the time of year it can be cold in hospital

  • Singlets

  • Beanie/Mittens

  • Going home outfit

  • Wraps/swaddles

  • Dummy/pacififer if you plan to use one

  • Bottles if you plan to bottle feed

During Labour your birth partner might need a few things too so it's a great idea to get them to bring along a bag which might contain a spare change of clothes, snacks and coins for vending machines, phone charger, list of people to contact like Birth Photographer, Doula etc
