What will your baby need in the hospital?


  • Three lightweight tops and bottoms. Do not buy yellow coloured clothes for the newborn since they are constantly observed for neonatal jaundice. Yellow coloured clothes will deter detection.
  • Two dozens of cotton diapers and three small diaper covers
  • Two washable bibs
  • Diaper pins
  • Disposable diapers
  • Swaddle clothes

If you are having a winter baby add these:

  • One cap
  • Two sweaters
  • Two blankets, weight according to season
  • Two pairs of bootees or socks


  • Baby soap
  • Baby shampoo
  • Baby powder
  • Soft towel.
