Emergency Hospital Bag Check List for Dads

By JustMommies staff

Here is a check list of things your wife would like you to bring to the hospital for her. This was written just for the dads so you don’t forget anything important. We only have the essentials listed to make it easy. These are the must haves for the hospital bag.

  Hospital Bag Check list  What to bring to the hospital     For Mom  

Hospital paperwork and insurance card

(If you can’t find paperwork or have no idea what to do grab your insurance card.)  

Cell phone or prepaid phone card for your wife.

Trust us she will want to make some calls while she is at the hospital.  

Camera

(If you have one bring it. If not, get a disposable camera)  

Important phone numbers

 

Underwear, socks, and bras

Make sure to find ones that will fit her. If she has maternity panties grab those. If she is planning to breastfeed make sure she has a nursing bra.  

Change of clothes (bring a couple outfits)

*Very important* Find something that will fit your wife, lose and stretchy clothes are a good choice. If you aren’t sure what size she is wearing grab a pair of maternity pants and a maternity top (that doesn’t tie in the back) just in case she needs it.  

Deodorant

 

Tooth paste and tooth brush

 

Razor

 

Hair brush and shampoo

 

Make up/cosmetics

 

Contact solution/contact case

   

For Baby

 

Going home outfit.

(If she doesn’t have one picked out, which we doubt will be the case, go buy one)  

Car seat

 

Baby blankets
