We asked you to help us to collate the ultimate hospital bag checklist bearing in mind the times we’re in and how Covid has effected the experience of giving birth and the stay in hospital afterwards with limited access to your partner or family to help.
You responded in your hundreds with lots of tips and your own experience of delivering your baby during Covid and what essentials you needed while in hospital.
One of the big changes we found, was how prepared you felt you needed to be with mums shopping for their necessities a lot earlier than usual due to shortages in some items in shops and the need to be super prepared during lockdown. Deliveries are taking much longer and some shops are finding it difficult to source and keep the flow of products to meet the demand – we ourselves have seen a huge increase in demand for our newborn bibs, blankets and newborn size cardigans and ZippyBoo zip babygrows.
Whether your birth is vaginal or a c-section, whether you choose to breast or bottle feed, we’ve broken out our checklist into these sections to showcase exactly what you will need and what will help make your hospital stay and birth run as smoothly as possible.
