First off, before I get into the nitty gritty about packing for the hospital, I want to talk about ending “period poverty” with U by Kotex. 1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period supplies products in the past year due to lack of income. U by Kotex® is proud to be the founding sponsor of The Alliance for Period Supplies. This new national organization helps ensure that individuals in need have access to essential period products required to participate fully in daily life. During the entire month of October, for every one (1) U by Kotex® product purchased in store or online at Walmart, (2) products of U by Kotex®.

The Ultimate Packing List for Your Labor and Delivery Hospital Bag

  • Comfortable pajamas (With a top you can button-up or pull down if you plan on nursing)

  • Robe (To keep you warm and cozy, and allow you to quickly cover up when visitors arrive or nurses pop in)

  • Comfy slippers and cozy socks

  • Cotton underwear (Bring maternity underwear or other pairs that you don’t mind getting ruined)

  • U by Kotex maxi overnight pads

  • Nursing bras

  • A going home outfit for yourself (something loose—you’ll still look several months pregnant—and with easy access for nursing)

  • Charger for your phone and any other devices

  • Toiletries (Don’t forget your toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, and moisturizer)

  • Anything else that will help you relax (your own pillow or pillowcase, a playlist, pictures of loved ones, lavender spray, etc.)

  • Eye mask (There will be some lights left on 24/7, so if you need complete darkness to get any real shut-eye, I highly recommend an eye mask.)

  • Healthy snacks

  • Photo ID

  • Insurance card

  • Credit card

  • Cash

  • Any necessary hospital paperwork

  • notepad or journal and pen 

Everything you need for baby:

  • An installed car seat. 

  • Clothes to bring baby home in multiple sizes. Include socks, a hat, and mittens so they can’t scratch their face.

  • A receiving blanket or swaddle for ride home.

  • Newborn diapers.
