11 Must-Haves in Hospital Bag for Daddy + Baby

Last week, we gave you a taste of the must-haves for Mommy’s hospital bag. This week, let’s take a closer look at what Daddy & Baby will need (much less than Mama, we assure you!)

For Daddy:

  • Comfy clothes. You may be here for a while, Dad. Sweats, baseball tees, sweatshirt… the works.
  • Toothbrush/Toothpaste. These two toiletries are at the top of the list.
  • Pillow. Dad’s don’t exactly get a “bed” in the hospital, so a pillow is a must for that chair.
  • Blanket. Again, let’s make Dad as comfortable as we can. Grab a throw for overnight.
  • iPad/Ear buds. No iPad? Any other form of entertainment will do for Dad. He may be waiting a while!
  • Snacks. Moms can’t eat, but Dad will be pretty hungry. Keep some healthy snacks on hand.

For Baby:

  • Onesies. Pack two of these, in two different sizes. Your cutie may fit into Newborn, but having one sized 0-3 is good back-up.
  • Boppy. You’ve heard all about the Bobby, and trust us, you will want that baby by your side in the hospital!
  • Warm socks. Keep those cute little piggy toes nice and cozy.
  • Blanket. It’s time to learn how to swaddle the baby.
  • Car seat/carrier. This is definitely a necessity – you won’t be able to go home with your baby without one.
