The moment labour pains kick in, everything else takes a backseat, and life starts to revolve around the baby and the mommy. A few weeks before this is expected to happen, you should ideally have everything that you would need during and after delivery handy, to avoid any last-minute running around. A hospital delivery bag is one of the most critical “essentials” that should be kept ready to prepare for the big day!

When to pack your hospital delivery bag?

Now that’s an important question. Because just in case the labour pains start earlier than expected, you would not want to be in labour, need something, and then make someone who should be there for you, instead go running around for it. So, by the time you reach the 36th week of your pregnancy (32nd week in case you are expecting twins), your maternity bag should be ready except for last-minute things like toiletries, comb, etc.

It might even be a good idea to keep a spare set ready in the bag so that you don’t forget them if you have to rush to the hospital.

What to pack in your hospital bag checklist in India?

While packing the maternity bag or hospital delivery bag, it is always better, to begin with, a checklist on paper. It helps keep track of things you need to buy, things you already have, what might be needed for the mommy-to-be, the newborn baby, the father or caregiver accompanying you at the hospital, and other general delivery-related things. Here is a ready-to-use hospital bag checklist India, that you can refer to while arranging for things you would need:

Mom-to-be hospital bag checklist:

1. Medical Documents: Your hospital and medical insurance paperwork. Ideally, your hospital will have your past reports and medical history and your doctor will also know you well. But in case there is a last-minute change in the hospital or the attending doctor, it is always better to have complete paperwork, your medical records, medical insurance papers, identification, etc., handy.

2. Clothing: Extra pair of clothing depending on the season in which you are delivering. At times even in summers, post-delivery, a new mother tends to feel a bit cold. It is always advised to pack an extra cardigan or a front zip jacket/hoodie for yourself in such a case in your hospital bag checklist for mom. Comfortable flip-flops or slippers to use at the hospital.

3. Medicine: Any medication that you consume apart from the ones related to your pregnancy. Make sure to tell the attending staff beforehand to make those medications accessible to you at your bedside.

4. Extra Pillow and towel: Hospitals usually provide one pillow, or maybe one extra if you ask for it. Carry your extra pillow to keep under the feet or behind your back for extra support and comfort. For hygiene purposes, it is also good to carry your towel in your hospital bag for delivery.

5. Sanitary Napkins and Underwear: Women experience heavy flow bleeding for the first few days after the delivery. Regular sanitary pads might not be sufficient at such a time. Thus, keep hospital-grade heavy-flow maternity pads or comfortable underwear such as SuperBottoms MaxAbsorb Period Underwear for later in your maternity hospital bag checklist. It is also common to lose bladder control and experience incontinence after the delivery.

6. Breastfeeding and Nursing Accessories: Last but not least, make sure to pack your breastfeeding and nursing accessories such as breast pads, nursing covers, nursing bras, feeding pillows, etc in your hospital bag checklist for mom. Check out eco-friendly reusable breast pads by SuperBottoms.

Newborn Baby Hospital Bag Checklist:

1. Clothing: An outfit that the baby will go home in. It is better to pack 2 outfits, one newborn size and one 0–3 months size, to choose from, as what fits a newborn differs for each baby. You can pack SuperBottoms Mulmul Jhabla for a comfortable sleep.

2. Winter Care Essentials: Newborn babies are not equipped to regulate their body temperature naturally. Thus, they can catch a cold easily. So, pack a warm baby blanket, knit cap, booties and mittens to keep them warm. SuperBottoms - India's #1 Reusable Cloth Diaper Brand for Babies provides UNO Cloth Diapers which keeps your baby dry and comfortable during winters.

3. Swaddle Wrap: Swaddling a baby helps them feel cosy and warm, and sleep better. So, pack a few prewashed soft cotton swaddles, such as SuperBottoms Dry Feel Swaddle Wrap in the hospital delivery bag for the baby.

4. Baby-Care Essentials: Baby essentials include nail clippers, body wash, burp cloth, shampoo, massage oil, hairbrush, soft towel, etc.

5. Organic Cotton Langot: Washable and reusable organic cotton langot such as SuperBottoms Dry Feel Langots.

6. Feeding Essentials: At times, the breast milk supply might take a day or two to kick in, and in such a scenario, if you decide to feed formula milk to the baby, keep feeding bottles and a packet of formula recommended by the paediatrician also ready.

Father or the caregiver’s hospital bag checklist:

1. Food or Snacks: There is no specified time until when the labour can go on and can last for long hours at times. Therefore, it is wise to pack a few snacks for the caregiver or father accompanying the mom-to-be.

2. Covid Pandemic Essentials: All COVID-19 essentials such as face masks, face shields, hand sanitizer, surface disinfectant, etc., should be kept handy in your hospital bag checklist for delivery in India to avoid exposure to any infection while running around for arrangements at the hospital.

4. Medical and Personal-care items: Caregiver’s prescription medicines, reading glasses, or any personal care items they may need outside the home.

5. Payment Options: ATM cards, debit cards, credit cards, and some change cash for payments.

6. Extras: Toiletries, extra phone chargers, and an extra bag to carry back any gifts that the baby or family received while at the hospital.

Must Avoid Items In The Hospital Bag For Delivery:

While we have covered all the things one must carry in the hospital bag for delivery india, there are also certain items that one must avoid taking along. Here is a list of things to avoid for you:

1. Jewellery: Leave all your jewellery behind. It is advised to take off all the jewellery the mommy-to-be is wearing and leave it at home.

2. Valuables: Don’t carry too much cash or valuable items and electronics, as you would want your only priority to be the delivery, the mom, and the newborn on your mind.

3. Uncomfortable Clothing: Avoid carrying any fancy or dressy clothes for yourself in your hospital bag for delivery India, as you would need to be comfortable and rest easily.
