Packing for the hospital can seem overwhelming. Like, what do I really need? I don't want to overpack and I don't want to under pack. I want to make sure I have the right essentials.
So I thought, what makes packing for traveling easy? A list! So with that, I am sharing my personal list of hospital essential with you all. I hope you find this list helpful and valuable as you are preparing for your little one to enter into the world.
Just a side note. I have Kaiser Permenate, who provides a fair amount of items that I choose to use and not bring from home. Such as non skid socks, diapers, wipes etc. I have included these items on the list incase you'd rather bring your own or your birthing center/hospital does not provide these items.
