  • What's in my hospital bag? The compete list!

    I don't know why, but during the last few months of my pregnancy I have been obsessed with "what's in my hospital bag" videos and blog posts. I find them extremely helpful so here is what we are bringing with us to the hospital. Maybe it will help someone else. Disclaimer: I have a MAJOR over-packing problem, so this is the best I could do. ;) 

    ♡One bag for Mommy which will have everything I need for labor and delivery plus recovery. I am also bringing along my Bobby pillow and a pillow from home. I don't do pancake pillows and I hear the hospital pillows lack the fluff. NOPE! **MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR ID AND INSTALL YOUR CAR SEAT!!!**

    -Comfy socks. 

    -Slippers

    -2 Pairs of yoga pants, one will be used for going home.

    -2 nursing tanks, one will be used for going home.

    -Nursing nightgown with robe

    -Pajama pants

    -Ugly undies (probably wont use them, but just in case I can't stand the mesh pantie they provide) 

    -Postpartum compression band

    -Water bottle

    -Toiletry bag (I have 2 because not everything fit in one.)

    -Small standing mirror

    -Make up bag

    -Head phones

    -(not pictured) hoodie

    -Make up bag - Just a few essentials; foundation, mascara, liner, blush, brow pencil, lipstick, eye shadow and brushes. 

    There is no point in separating toiletries since we both use most of the same things.

    Daddy's bag is a bit bare, as we live just 15 minutes away from the hospital so I did not want to make him pack too much. He plans on running home a couple of times to check on Emily and feed her, if he needs something else he can grab it then.

    My FAVORITE bag to pack was baby C's diaper bag! Full of cute! Note, the hospital will provide pretty much everything except a going home outfit, but I am a first time Mom so of course I am going to bring a quarter of his wardrobe! A friend suggested I bring a few newborn size outfits as well as 0-3 months just incase he is a big baby.
