Vancouver Newborn Photography – Bringing home baby Checklist

Having a few newborn essentials on hand for the hospital and when you bring your newborn home will help you be at ease and ready for your baby’s arrival.

Newborn essentials to pack for the hospital 

Generally there will be some available at the hospital, but this way you make sure you have everything you need should they run out.

  • Newborn diapers
  • Hat in case the room is chilly or for the way home
  • Outfits for baby
  • Special going home outfit
  • Baby blanket
  • Formula and bottles
  • Burp cloths are always handy

Make sure you get your rear-facing car seat installed prior to your hospital stay, so you are ready.

Essentials for bringing baby home 

It is a good idea to have the following items at home and prepared for baby’s arrival:

  • Breast pump
  • Burp cloths
  • Newborn diapers
  • Wipes (or a cloth and warm water are perfect as well)
  • Diaper cream 
  • Bottles
  • Crib or a safe place to sleep for baby
  • Fitted sheet and mattress for the crib
  • Outfits, onesies, and pajamas
  • Newborn bathtub (another great way for baths is a sink with a towel on the bottom as they are nice and shallow)
  • Towels and Washcloths
