Happy Baby week to me! As many of you know, I was supposed to be induced this week. But unfortunately due to weather, my induction was rescheduled. I was so sure little babicurve was going to come last week because at my last appt I was already 3cm, but apparently God has other plans. In the meantime, I wanted to share with you guys what I packed in my hospital bag. I feel like Im over prepared this time around. When I had Creed I packed a lot, but not what I needed. I had a whole suitcase…not even sure what was in there! This time around I have two small duffles and I still feel like I have too much.
Here is a pretty good list of things you will need. Honestly, the hospital will give you a lot of what you need so I wouldn’t worry too much. I would mainly make sure I have things to make your stay more comfortable.
Pajamas – Im bringing two pairs of pajamas. You never know how long you will be in the hospital. With Creed we stayed for almost 4 days.
Robe – I’m bringing multiple robes. I would suggest at least two. I had one robe from etsy (here) especially for delivery. That one might get messy (depending on your delivery). I also have a clean cozy robe and a soft jersey robe.
Going Home Outfit – something comfy. This is a good one from Storq
Adult Diapers – These are probably my favorite item. The hospital will provide some mesh underwear and a super large pad which is not very comfortablele….especially if you’re plus-sized!
Nursing Bra – there’s a pack from amazon but also
Nipple butter ( I believe the hospital will provide this)
Breast Pump – If you plan o pumping you will need one. I believe the hospital will let you borrow one but its better to bring your own so they can show you how to use it.
Toiletries – Makeup, toothpaste, toothbrush, brush, etc
Blanket and Pillow
Treats for Nurses
