What Should I Carry In The Hospital Bag For Delivery?

  • What Should I Carry In The Hospital Bag For Delivery?
Friends, The One Where Rachel Has A Baby - Part 1

It's almost time for the baby to arrive. Your wife/partner is dealing with the emotional and physical stress of the third trimester. 

Someone needs to figure out what to carry in the hospital bag for labour, delivery and the baby. You've probably been looking online but only found lists and articles talking about nursing bras, breast pads and panties. Have you noticed those lists change depending on where in the world you are? After all, they have to cater to cultural sensitivities. 

But what about you almost-daddy? Where is that list that makes you feel like a happily participating, proactive superstar? 

What we at Daddy's Digest have done, is develop just that. We've put together a list for men. This is everything (or almost everything) that you can help put together for your baby, wife and yourself. We have left out the sensitive and complicated lady stuff, giving your wife/partner the opportunity to focus on the essentials for their comfort and convenience.
