WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG

In today’s edition of ‘what’s in my bag’ we discuss what I’m packing (or not) for the hospital. While I do want to be as prepared + comfortable as possible, I’m also realistic in the sense that I know there isn’t really all that much I do need. From what I’ve heard, the hospital does a pretty decent job at providing all the necessities but I’m also making sure I have the little comforts I personally would like to have on hand, without freaking out + sending my husband home.

WHAT I’M PACKING IN MY HOSPITAL BAG:

pillow from home
one extra cozy blanket from home
extra socks
robe
comfy loose clothes
leakproof nursing tank
maternity underwear – these + these
washable bra pads
slides for the shower
face wash + serum
travel sized shampoo + conditioner
small hair brush
scrunchie
toothbrush + travel sized tooth paste
moisturizer
lip balm
pads
nipple cream
extra long charging cord
portable bluetooth speaker
water bottle (with straw) – this one‘s my everyday bottle I swear by
lots of snacks

…bc I’ve heard snacks are VERY important here, a dedicated list:

handfuel coconut cashews
dried mango
smart sweets: fuzzy peaches, gummy bears + sour melon bites
Laid back snacks: maple praline almonds + hawaiian mix
coconut cashew energy bites
Smart Water: zero sugar açai blueberry (to pour over ice)
Coconut water

WHAT I’M PACKING FOR BABY:

going home outfit (packing options)
gown (for easier changing)
bottles & formula
burp cloths
diapers + wipes
swaddles
hat + socks

…and we can’t forget the man of the hour
