This maternity bag checklist is designed to make sure you have absolutely everything you need to deliver your baby when the big day finally arrives. There’s even a few extra creature comforts thrown in that will help you maintain at least some level of style during all the pushing and panting.
Simply click on the image below to download the checklist, print it out and check everything off as you pack it. It couldn’t be simpler. Once your hospital bag is packed and ready to go, stash it by the front door or in your car boot so that it’s right where you need it when the stork starts knocking. If you’re stuck for ideas about where to find everything you need, take a look at our guide to where to buy baby products in Singapore.
Remember to pack your maternity bag and diaper bag well in advance—at least three weeks prior to your due date is ideal, but super-organised mamas may wish to aim for six weeks before.
