My to-go bag

You should pack a go-to bag for the hospital somewhere between 34 and 36 weeks, so that if you go into labor at any point, you don't have to worry. Your bag is in the car and ready to go. 

The hospital will have most of the things on this list, and you really only need a baby outfit, your own outfit and a car seat. But I like having my own stuff, it makes me feel a little bit more comfortable, not to mention that I'm all about being over prepared. 

Here's a small peek into my bag I have some clothes in there, flip flops, a robe, an extra scarf and socks in case the hospital gets too cold, and some comforting toiletries. I got Kevin Murphy samples from my hairdresser, they smell so good! The Aesop cream is another thing that I find instantly soothing.

Also, here's a nifty checklist I made. You can pin it, print it out, or use it to make your own.


  1. Bring something to wear in case you're too hot as well. After you give birth you sweat like crazy during the night. I wanted to die!

  2. the nursing pillow and lanolin were a must if you plan to breastfeed. i'd also recommend soft towels and a cozy blanket. the linens at the hospital left a lot to be desired. so excited for you! you're gonna be a mama soon!!!
