Hospital Bag: DONE!

This is the one thing that I procrastinate on a lot. I don't really like packing, be it for holiday even. Because I'll end up with heaps of unnecessary things shoved inside the bag for no apparent reason. And the same goes while I was packing for the baby and my hospital bag. Eventho I have the checklist to refer to, I still ended up with a few things, just for the sake of thinking 'maybe it's not enough'. Hahaha!

Let's start with the baby's stuff first, shall we?

Baby care items are included in my list of hospital bag for baby, eventho most people said these aren't going to be used but I just like to be prepared. It's completely okay if these items stay inside the bag as long as I know I have all the things ready should I need them later. I bought a travel size for all items so it won't take much space.

  • 6x diapers
  • 1x baby wipes
  • 1x set of travel pack toiletries 
  • 1x minyak telon
  • 1x minyak yuyi
  • 1x vicks

  • The main stuff, baby clothes! I think I've brought a sufficient need for her stay in the hospital. It includes:

  • 2x swaddle wraps
  • 1x receiving blanket
  • 2x set mittens and booties
  • 1x towel
  • 3x baby binder
  • 3x button-front clothes
  • 1x hat

  • From the list of clothes above, I've separated it to after-birth clothes and going-home clothes. Referring to an entry from Mama Lynd, this is going to be my baby's first clothes right after delivery. I've briefed my husband regarding this already and packed this set of attire in a separate paper bag so it'll be easier for him when the nurse asked for the baby's blanket and tops. Just take it out from the bag and pass it on to the nurse.

    As for the going-home clothes (nak jugekkkkkkkkk!), I've packed something fancy yet simple for the baby since she's still a newborn. Who doesn't want her baby to look cute, right? Hahaha alasan nak dress up semata!

    Okay, since we're done with the baby's hospital bag, let's move further to mummy's hospital bag now:
    Mummy's care regiment is a must! I bought everything in a travel size to save space as possible as I could.

  • 1x pack maternity pads
  • 1x set toiletries
  • 1x make-up kit

  • As for the clothes, I packed a few pieces just in case there are leaking and whatnots.

  • 3x button-front tops
  • 3x kain batik
  • 1x sweater
  • 3x thick socks
  • 3x nursing bras
  • 1x pack disposable panties
  • 1x towel
  • 1x pack disposable breast pads
  • 1x nipple cream

  • Apart from these things. I also think this is worth consider to be packed inside your bag too just in case (which I think is necessary!):

  • Instant drinks (Milo/Horlicks)
  • Light snacks (dates/biscuits)
  • Handphone charger
  • Novel/magazine (to kill time)

  • Okay, once everything is all sorted out, they can all go inside the bag and I can now wait for the day to come. The owl bag belongs to the baby while the other one belongs to mummy. Now we're ready to go!

    all the best dear:)

    Lisa, I pun x sure. Tp maybe u bole bwk baju yg 2pcs tu utk stay kat hospital n romper pkai masa nak balik. Lgpun since newborn pun tiny lg, biasanye nurse pkaikan top je. X pkai seluar pun.

    dupdapdupdap..i pun ternervous sekali walhal baru nak masuk 3rd trimester..all the best dear! owl bag 4 baby tu cute gile..

    Hi Elly! ;)

    Yups, you are right. Kalau new born normally nurse akan pakaikan yang 2-piece. Sometimes tak pakai pants pon. Kalau baby kecik, better prepare baju Pureen Tiny Baby or Mothercare Tiny Baby :) Else, kesian baby kena pakai baju besar eventho size 0-3mo or newborn.

    Like my baby, born with only 2.3kg, pakai baju semua besar. Haha! Kesian..

    Oh btw nak inform, actually vicks ada yg khas utk babies. Name Vicks Balsam. Penutup dia pink. But that one only can apply when baby 3 months old. I dont think newborn need that :)

    Then minyak yuyi tu, my friend cakap kalau minyak limau apply kat baby skin, nanti kesian bile baby mandi.. skin dia melecet. I dont know.. just her experience sbb anak dia nanges bile dia pakai minyak yuyi and mase nak mandi mcm merah2.

    Sharing is caring! :) All the best k!

    Bayak baju tu..heheh..tp kalau mmg anak u kecik better bwk bj yg kecik mcm juliet cakap..sb nnt kt spital pun nurse akan pakaikan baju with pampers ja..

    Then yg minyak yuyi tu, Baby I guna minyak yuyi, setakat ni ok..alhamdulilah..

    Kalau boleh, bwk la kurma and kismis.sgt membantu kalau kita tak de tenaga..then dia mempercepatkan bukaan..cuba la..oh ya..kalau ada air zam zam pun better..leh jd air selusuh..

    Elly: prepare utk husband juga. You boleh bw disposal panty too. Senang. Pakai buang. Sanitizer utk you/hub. Sebab hospital byk gems. Sanitize before pegang baby. Siap beg masuk kereta. :) syoknye!

    cindyrina June 13, 2012 at 10:28 AM  

    wow! fully prepared mummy to be???? Hope everything go smoothly!

    ryy.han June 13, 2012 at 11:02 AM  

    Agreed with juliet, ada vicks baby balsam tp tuk baby above 3 months...

    Extra diapers blh gak bwk..sbb newborn kerap poo poo

    Oh ya bersalin mana? My last time nurse putrajaya bersihkan baby guna baby oil ( ni yg btl lps bersalin..diorg xmandikan just bersih guna baby oil)..so maybe blh add dlm list...

    Actually masa nk tolak g labour room nurse pesan bw baby oil, baju, bedung ( kita bw 1 je pstu nurse kt extra pun xpe sbb sejuk air cond), diaper, air selusuh

    Lg 1 for me i found hot oil really useful (biasanya dlm set bersalin ada minyak urut kan). Bila dh msk wad balik, kita suh husband sapu2 minyak kat kaki, betis so on..pstu pakai stokin

    hope everything goes smoothly.. :)

    Hi, selalu buka blog Elly since Elly tengah prepare majlis kahwin :)

    Actually i sekarang dah 36w sama dengan Elly tapi dah 2nd baby. Yang 1st baru 13m (rezeki kehkehkeh...) ;)

    Cuma nak let u know yang baby TAK BOLEH langsung pakai vicks yang Elly beli tu. Ada vicks khas untuk babies tapi itupun after 3m baru boleh pakai. Vicks Blossom (tutup colour pink!).

    Based on my experience, sampai kena marah dengan doc sebab once produk yang kita pakaikan dekat baby, kena baca detail dekat kotak/botol produk tu. Suitable for baby or not.

    Vicks yang Elly beli ni tak sesuai lagi untuk baby dan boleh menyebabkan SAWAN! Itu my doc bagitahu. OK, goodluck Elly =)

    Elly Anaille June 14, 2012 at 12:36 PM  

    Anon: whoaaaaa thanks for the great info! Ramai suggest bli vicks kaler pink after baby reaches 3 mo so nnt i nak g cari la. Hehe thanks again everybody!

    Welcome Elly.. dulu pun tak tahu main bantai sapu dekat baby, padan muka kena marah dengan doc :(

    Kita sama2 learn OK :)

    i think baby vicks pun tak sesuai. thats for babies from 3months.

    beli la dis one --> 21st Century (children's Vapor balm) and comes in a cute little bottle. It has a nice strawberry flavour too. provides relief from blocked nose, cough and muscular aches and pains due to cold and flu.

    plus..minyak yuyi pun tak bagos for babies. sbb kulit baby sgt nipis. tak same ngan kulit kite. try letak belakang tengkuk kite. confirm rase panas.
