Hospital Bag

Let's get ourselves prepared

As  I mentioned in my birth story, I began packing for my hospital and baby bag a day before leaving for the hospital. Alhamdulilah, I have searched before hand on what to bring to the hospital.

Here's the list :

  • Baby
    • Changing mat
    • Diapers
    • Clothes : Top, Bottom
    • Baby Oil 
    • Wipes
    • Towel
    • Mitten & Booties
    • Tummy Binder (Barut)
    • Swaddle blanket
  • Mother
    • IC, admission form from hospital
    • Kain Batik
    • Nursing Bra
    • Disposal panty
    • Tudung
    • Socks
    • Towel
    • Face towel
    • Toiletries
    • Maternity pad
    • Sweater (I got very cold after the delivery)
    • Laundry bag
    • Food & drink (dates, zamzam water, plain water)
    • Phone, Camera
    • Chargers
    • Nipple cream
    • Flit-flop

From my own experience, the things that were my best friends (I need them a lot) are

  • Disposable panty (used till 4 weeks postpartum)
  • Maternity pad
  • Nipple cream : You will get sore from breast feeding, I did as I am a first time mom.
And yes, don't forget about our husband
  • Clothes
  • Toiletries
  • Sejadah @ Prayer mat
  • Flit-flop
I was actually planning to pack everything when I entered week 35 but I was procrastinating till the very last minute. It is never wrong to pack earlier.
