What to pack in the babys diaper bag for hospital?


Just wondering what everyone recommends packing in the diaper bag for the hospital when the baby is first born, I'm not packing yet but just want to start making a list.

Bring a lot of changes of onesies and sleepies. I needed like 4 pairs of clothes in 2 days lol changing diapers didn't come very easy for me at first especially since I was in pain after. You'll also want to bring hats, socks, burp rags, blankets, mittens.. and the hospital should provide the rest for you.

It all depends on what your hospital provides for the baby during your stay, mine provides diapers/wipes/clothing during my stay, so all I need to bring is a coming home outfit, a blanket, and her car seat, lol. Easy for me :-p. What everyone else has listed is good, if you have a boppy pillow or other breastfeeding pillow bring that along too!

Five sleepsuits and vest (various sizes)
bottles just incase
nappies
nappy sacks+wipes muslin cloth
multiple bibs, a hat and scratch mitts
blanket umm nappy cream, cotton wool a special newborn dummy just incase
and ofcourse a car seat not that I litterally packed it
and that's about it so far I can think of, as it's his changing bag it may not be necessary at birth but atleast it's in there
