Did you know there are several items you don't need in your hospital maternity bag? A lot of lists found in baby books and online are outdated and stuffed to the max with non-essential items. If you think about it, a hospital provides you and your baby everything you need to be taken care of properly! The rest is just for personal comfort. So here is a list of items you don't need in your hospital maternity bag- feel free to leave these back at home!

1. Pads

One of the items you don't need in your hospital maternity bag are pads. You may think about bringing them along for post-delivery needs, but the hospital provides you with plenty of pads, along with ice packs and mesh undies that are far from being fashionable but really help soothe and bring down swelling. A little tip: wear spandex shorts to help keep all those bulky undergarments in place! And remember, you'll definitely need pads once you get home from the hospital, so stock up in advance.
