It’s the first day of March and I’m on my 37th week. I finished packing things for the hospital. We are ready to go! I think I brought too much stuff though, but we’ll see. I wanted to share with you my list so you can tell me if this is quite a lot and quite ‘OA’.
Here are the things that I packed for Baby Zeeka:
3 long sleeves / 3 sleves / 6 sleveless Tie sides
4 Burp pads
21 Gauze Cloth diapers
12 Birds eye diapers
4 pairs of Diaper clamps
2 packs Disposable diapers
2 pairs of Socks
12 pairs of Mittens
6 Receiving blankets
3 Swaddle blankets
1 Rubber mat
Here are the things that I packed for myself:
2 Pajamas with front opening for breastfeeding
1 bath robe
2 nursing bras
1 regular bra
Disposable breast pads
8 pcs underpads
Two dresses for going home
And, finally, here are the things that I packed for My hubby:
Shorts and sando for sleeping
We also have a Goodie bag where other stuff are placed:
Medical documents and certificate from birthing class
Stem cord kit
Focal point for labor
Pen and notebook (to write down contractions)
Info sheet – 6 copies
Birth plan – 3 copies
Charger for phones
Charger for camera
What do you think? Is this enough? Is it too much? 🙂
Let me know what you think.
You’re more than prepared, Ginger! 🙂 Excited for you!
Thanks, Patty, for the confirmation! 🙂 Honestly didn’t know if I packed enough for us! 🙂 ~ Ginger
So excited for you and ej! 1 more week to go 🙂 Pack around ten swaddles 🙂 pack more bonnets 🙂 cloth gauze diaper you will just use as burp pad 🙂 clothes around 5 max changes a day (if they spit up often) 🙂 for tummy binder, get an extra because it’s expensive if you get from the hospital. 🙂 there’s this cheap brand in SM – lady grace 🙂 do not forget baby toiletries unless the hospital has a welcome pack for baby 🙂 I love Mustela shampoo and wash! It does not override the natural baby smell 🙂
Wow! Thanks for the tips, Kat! 🙂 I’ll check out nga Lady grace in SM. Sige, i’ll bring extra. Oooh, yeah! 🙂 I’ll bring toiletries for the baby 🙂
Hi Ginger! I shared my labor checklist in your email…but pretty much you have it here already! =) So excited for you and hubby! =)
Hi Ven! 🙂 You are so cute!!! 🙂 I love your list! 🙂 As I said in my email, i’ll edit it to fit me, Ej and Baby Zeeka! 🙂 Love love love you! 🙂 ~ Ginger
Glad to be of help, Ginger! Have fun! =)
Hi Ginj! Can’t tell you that it is too much because i packed more than what’s enough too, but the most that i was thankful i brought with me in the hospital was my own pillow, because it made me felt relax or at home feeling 🙂 and a lavender oil, scent that calms you maybe? Because being pregnant you tend to be sensitive with scents, so i was aftaid i will not like how it will be in the hospital so just a thought 🙂 best wishes and i am very happy for you!
Thanks, Mina! 🙂 I’ll bring a pillow, too! 🙂 Yeah, i’m okay with the scent of lavender. I just don’t like the scent of coffee 🙂 haha!
that’s more than enough ginj 🙂 you only need to bring clothes for the baby for when she’s ready to go home. while they’re in the nursery (or in your room) they will be in the hospital’s swaddling clothes and diapers.
i made a list here: http://manilamommy.com/2009/09/a-practical-hospital-bag-checklist/
best to check with your hospital too what you should bring. my list is based on st.luke’s qc 🙂
Thanks, Ate Nina! I checked your list and I think I brought more than enough 🙂 Parang magbabakasyon ako! haha! 🙂
don’t forget to bring your sss and philhealth id and forms.
Yup, It’s in my bag na and I filled it up na as much as I could 🙂 hehe! 🙂 Thanks!
I believe you wrote this before you gave birth. Now that you’ve given birth in Asian Hospital, can you email tips on what to bring? Please 🙂 thanks a lot mommy ginger!
Hi Katrina! I actually adjusted the article already to what I brought. Oh, a tip pala! Asian Hospital doesn’t allow breast pumps inside the hospital. They really try to make your baby latch on to you 🙂 I guess that’s the reason why I really got into breastfeeding my child 🙂 BTW, are you related to Gian Ley? 🙂
