Hospital Packing Checklist

BABY • Diapers • Diaper cream • Receiving/swaddling blanket • Onesies. Good idea to bring one or two newborn, and one or two 0-3 month onesies, since you don’t know which size will fit your baby. • Sleepers. Again, bring a couple of different sizes. • Hat • Cozy blanket • Car seat, properly installed in your car.
