Preparing a well-stocked hospital bag is an essential part of your journey towards welcoming your little one into the world. As expectant parents in Singapore, it's important to have a hospital bag checklist tailored to your specific needs. Here’s a comprehensive list of maternity essentials for your delivery bag, to ensure you're well-prepared for this exciting chapter of your life.
Loose-fitting, comfortable clothes: Pack loose-fitting nightgowns or comfortable pajamas for the duration of your hospital stay. They will provide you with ease of movement and comfort. You can find a range of comfortable maternity nightwear at Spring Maternity.
Nursing bras and breast pads
Choose nursing bras that offer support and convenience for breastfeeding. Pack a few pairs of breast pads to absorb leaks. Browse nursing bras and breast pads at Pupsik Studio.
Personal Care Items
Toiletries: Bring your own toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and other personal care items to make yourself feel fresh and clean during your stay. Find travel-sized toiletries and personal care items at Guardian Online, or at their physical stores with multiple outlets all over Singapore.
Stock up on comfortable maternity pads for post-delivery bleeding. Maternity pads are designed for postpartum bleeding, offering extra absorbency and coverage, while sanitary pads are used for menstrual flow. Hence, maternity pads are thicker and wider than sanitary pads. They are easily available at your local supermarket.
Baby clothes: Pack a few sets of baby clothes, including onesies, socks, mittens, and hats. Choose soft, comfortable fabrics suitable for newborns. Shop for adorable baby clothes at Uniqlo or Mothercare.
Diapers and wipes
Stock up on newborn-sized diapers and gentle baby wipes for your hospital stay. Consider eco-friendly options if desired. Discover a wide range of diapers and wipes at www.lazada.sg/shop/diapers
Nourishment and Snacks
Bottled water and snacks: Stay hydrated during labor and keep energy levels up with healthy snacks like nuts, granola bars, and fruits. Get convenient snacks and drinks at www.redmart.com
Important documents: Keep your identification, hospital registration forms, and any other necessary documents in a separate folder or envelope for easy access.
Electronics and chargers: Pack your phone, camera, and their respective chargers to capture and share those precious moments.
