My Hospital Bag Checklist

They say you should have your hospital bag ready when you are 28 weeks or 7 months.
When I was preggers with Khayla, I got it prepared by 30 weeks.

This time around, I seem to be taking things at a slower pace (a very much slower pace !), because at 33 weeks +, my hospital bag is not ready yet.

Heck, I have not even put the baby clothes/towels/mittens etc to wash yet ! *gasps!*

Mr. Sunshine pun dah bising. Haha.

Anyway, I did a few amendments to my old hospital bag checklist, so here it is:

BABY’S ESSENTIALS
10 pieces of newborn-sized diapers
2 pairs of button-up rompers
1 pair of button-up long sleeved top & bottom
1 bottle of telon oil
1 pack of baby wipes
1 piece of a hooded baby towel
1 piece of a hooded baby blanket
2 sets of mittens & booties
1 piece of baby hat
1 set of baby toiletries
3 pieces of baby binder
3 pieces of washcloths

MUMMY’S ESSENTIALS
1 piece of nursing blouse
2 pair of socks
2 pieces of kain batik
2 pieces of nursing bras
1 pack of disposable panties
Toiletries – cleanser, toothbrush, toothpaste
1 Towel
3 pieces of maternity pads
1 pack of disposable breast pads
1 instant hijab
1 pair of bathroom slippers
Plastic bag for soiled clothes
Water & food (biscuits etc)
Antenatal checkup record book (buku merah)
IC, handphone, charger & powerbank (these are usually in my handbag)

Let’s see whether I can fit all the above into my brand new Shaklee diaper tote bag.
