Congratulations on your new arrival.

Every baby born in a NSW hospital gets the Baby Bundle bag. It's full of useful products to help you and your baby get off to a good start when you get home.

You'll get the Baby Bundle before your discharge from hospital. If you didn't give birth in a hospital, you will get it once your baby is registered with NSW Births, Deaths and Marriages.
