Whether you’re a mum-to-be or may be forgot a few things during your last delivery, we’re here to provide an essential hospital bag edit provided by real mums for mums.
Recently on our Chekoh Chatter page we asked “What did you find was the most important thing to pack in your hospital bag?”
Chekoh Mama’s from around Australia provided the answers below. Take a look an hopefully it gives you a few ideas and pointers you’re welcome.
Baby Bag Inspo: Mimco Mim-Mazing Baby Bag // Colette
Firstly you’ll need a bag.
Any old bag will do but if you’re thinking of investing, think long term. Purchase a baby bag with compartments that will have your future self saying “THANK YOU!”
Extra Long Phone Cord: Apple // JB HiFi
Next up is an extra long phone charger cord.
This was mentioned more than once! Essential for sending that update on how Mum and Bub are doing and of course for newborn cuddle snaps.
Maternity Pads: TOM Organic // Libra
Maternity pads, need we say more really?
Did somebody say sugar fix?
You may feel like you've just run a marathon, so fuelling up is essential and our fuel of choice is chocolate! The good stuff for a well deserving Mama!
Keep those tootsies warm, as hospitals are usually freezing and comfort is key!
Which leads us to our next point..
Track Pants: Cotton On Maternity
The ultimate leisure wear, track pants are an essential pack to keep you warm and more importantly super comfy.
Journey Dress: Grey Stripe
Another perfect alternative for bump, birth and beyond is our Journey Dress!
Featuring discreet back access, breastfeeding friendly bust panel and pull down front to ensure you are prepared for that unforgettable first cuddle and skin-to-skin contact.
Available in Grey Stripe, Jett (a staple piece!), Leopard, Ochre and Dusk.
Body Wash: Bondi Wash
When a hospital is your home away from home, make it as comfortable as you can.
Bring your creature comforts. Some people struggle to sleep without their own pillow, if this sounds like you - pack it in! Other essentials that Chekoh Mama’s mentioned were shampoo, conditioner, body wash and soft toilet paper.
When you are ready to show Baby off to the rest of the world, the Chekoh pocket is the perfect announcement outfit for your little one. We even include a 'Hello, my name is...' card to capture their name.
Chekoh Pockets come with a bow or beanie style in your favourite Chekoh classic colourways - Cinta, Asha, Teal and Camel.
