ChecklistMommy’s DELIVERY BAG LIST

  • An IPAD — so you can watch Netflix if it takes forever to get your labor started, and so you can watch Netflix when/if you’re nursing those first few days, because nursing in the beginning is like a forty-minute process each session and you really ought to catch up on movies while you still can. And if you don’t feel like exposing your newborn to screen-time — not that it bothered me, I watched the entire first season of Downton Abbey one night in the peds ward with Sausage, when he was three weeks old and admitted for two days for RSV — you can use the Kindle app and read a book.
  • Nursing bras / tank tops (these are great) and super-comfy pajama bottoms or yoga pants — because honestly, the sooner you get out of that hospital gown, the better you’ll feel.
  • A bathrobe.
  • Slippers — hospital floors are FREEZING.
  • Snacks — in case it takes forever to get your labor going — and for the middle of the night munchies after baby arrives. Chocolate is good. Also fruit-leathers and nuts.
  • Your phone and a camera.
  • A pillow. Hospital pillows suck.
  • Your basic toiletries. Make-up, if you care. (I don’t.)
  • A pair of footie pajamas for the baby to wear home upon discharge.
