Top Mom Picks! 25 Hospital Bag Essentials


I’d like to take this opportunity to re-introduce myself, my name is Melissa and I’m the creator of LatchPal. I’m a mother to a beautiful little boy and our family is expecting a second child very soon. I see pictures of your beautiful babies on a daily basis and I’m eager to welcome another bundle of joy into our family!

With a very pregnant belly and 2.5 weeks until my due date, it’s time to pack a hospital bag and embrace the final weeks of pregnancy.  As I reflect on my journey, I can’t help but feel a bit sentimental knowing the end is near but I also feel a flutter of excitement whenever I see the tiny “coming home outfit” neatly folded on my hospital bag.

I guess you could say, a hospital bag, is the final step of preparation before a baby’s arrival. Like many expectant moms, mine has been  packed with great care and contains items to keep me comfortable, confident, and includes a few items for Dad (pillow, blanket, and snacks). While labor and delivery is different for every single family, here are my top “hospital bag picks”. I hope you find this list helpful as you prepare for your new addition!
