It can be difficult to know what to pack for your baby's birth, particularly if this is your first time. Between getting the nursery ready, organising your buggy and picking your car seat, the last few weeks of pregnancy can be a bit hectic.

The third trimester can feel like an eternity, but your baby will soon be on the way, so it is important to be prepared and have your hospital bag ready to go. More often than not, parents tend to overpack for the hospital trip, especially on a first baby. To make sure you don’t overdo it, check out our handy checklist:

The essential clothes you need to pack for baby:

  • 8 long sleeved babygrows
  • 8 Vests
  • Cardigan
  • Hat
  • Pre washed baby towel
  • 8 baby bibs
  • 2 baby blankets
  • 2 Cot sheets (optional)

When washing baby’s clothes for the first time, wash them separately from the rest of the family’s, and use a non-bio detergent that will be delicate on newborn skin, such as Persil Non-Bio. To make the clothes soft, use a delicately fragranced fabric conditioner which is kind to skin, such as Comfort Pure.
