My Mood:
Baby Supply Checklist - Hospital Bag Ideas

So I'm terrible about remembering things when I'm not pregnant. This was not the issue prior to motherhood, so I blame mom brain. This said when pregnant, it's a million times worse. I'm always lost,

That said I figured we might like a single place to keep the needs/wants listed and even shoot ideas around for hospital bag/birth items all in one place. I'll happily update OP as people add their lists.


Username: BooneNicuMama
Needs:
Boppy
Breastpump
Milk Storage System and bags
Baby clothes once gender is discovered
Dresser - don't ask, lol


Wants:
I really hope to have the funds to invest in a Toddler Tula for my present youngest. It would make life easier for all.


Hospital bag:
So far? Get bag.
I need to get it packed before week 20 since I've delivered as early as 25 weeks.




Username: Magoo07
Needs:
Infant car seat (ours expired)
New dressers for my big girls... They'll be sharing a room once baby comes
Newborn diapers
Breast pump (insurance should cover)
Bottles (for when I go back to work)
Onesies
Clothes (if it's a boy)
Newborn socks
High chair
Baby bathing items

Wrap for a newborn
Jogging stroller

Hospital bag:
Nursing bras

We also got rid of a fair amount after our youngest. I'm definitely hoping to splurge on the stroller this time though.

Re: Baby Supply Checklist - Hospital Bag Ideas

Okay mine is going to look like a rambly mess for right now, not all laid out best like yours because my brain is only semi functioning.

I need newborn diapers, but will probably make them. I don't think I will even have to buy anything to do that because I have a ton of fabric. I definitely don't need bigger diapers--unless it's twins I need to destash some of those but I don't think I will be able to make myself do that during pregnancy.

I need a pump...nothing fancy because I stay at home, probably just a manual one for occasional use.

Somewhere for baby to sleep, I am thinking pack n play. Maybe the Fisher price day n night one? And a carseat, a convertible one. And I'm debating about a stroller. I am hoping to pay for most things with Amazon rewards points/opinion outpost gift cards/Harris poll (or whatever that one is called) gift cards, I already have quite a bit saved up. Eventually a high chair, thinking about getting one of the space saving ones, though in reality we also need a bigger table.

Clothes--we are starting with nothing. Maternity shirts--I found pants at a yard sale, but going to need shirts. And would like dresses. Bonus of they do double duty for nursing.

I would like a new carrier, don't know if that will happen, and don't *need* anyway.

Um...I may add more but have to take care of the kids right now.
