After having 3 babies I feel like I’ve finally got down what I actually need in my hospital bag. With my first I brought way too much stuff, with my second I was missing a couple things and this last baby I was perfectly prepared.
This post is brought to you by Lily Jade. This is my favorite diaper bag that I have owned (5 so far) and I wish I had gotten it first because I am POSITIVE it would have lasted through all these years instead of in the trash like my others. It looks like a purse, has a removable organizer and it can be a backpack! It seriously has everything you need!
Let’s talk about what I brought with me shall we?
Among the obvious toiletries that you should pack the most important ones to me are…
- Dry Shampoo
- Sleeping Mask!! (I need it dark to sleep and there is always an annoying light on in your room).
- Phone Charger
- Hair ties
The baby things are the most fun to pack 😉 Make sure you’ve got a coming home outfit or two, some cute bows (my favorite is MODERN PIGGY) or beanies for pictures, a great swaddle and a nursing cover (both from COPPER PEARL) for when you have visitors.
Comfortable and BLACK is the name of the game so you don’t get anything stained. I love wearing a comfy nursing bra and a soft robe during my hospital stay and then when I go home just some baggy sweats and a baggy shirt!
