A much requested blog post is here! As a first time mama I want to be prepared so even though I'm not due for 7 more weeks I rounded up what I am packing in my hospital bag! I hope this hopefully helps you too! :) Check the bottom of the post for a super fun giveaway! Also- I wanted to tell you babes, I am going to update this post after I have him & tell you the items I really needed/maybe could have left home! 


- Pacifier 
- Outfit we are "announcing" him in
- 2 Swaddle blankets 
Boppy this isn't a necessity, you can just use a pillow! 
Wipes the hospital provided these! 
- Going home outfit 
Sleepsack (the one pictured above is in the color Dusty Sage but is sold out at the moment)
- Cord blood kit 

* We didn't stay long at the hospital so we didn't need all the clothes I brought him!

Thinking about:

- Baby book (for his footprints) I was so out of it when they were stamping his footprints on a separate sheet of paper, I completely forgot about his book
- Baby mittens (in case he scratches himself) We didn't use these


Belabumbum Lounge Chic PJ & Robe Set This was literally amazing, a godsend!
Long phone charger A MUST HAVE
Comfy slippers (I have these in 2 colors)
Non-slip fuzzy socks I just wore the ones the hospital gave me!
- Going home comfy outfit: cardigan, tank, joggers
Robe- loveee the leopard! Not bringing my nice one because I'm not sure how bad the blood situation will be
- Pillow loved having my own pillow!
Nursing bra (this looks super comfy to me!)
Nursing pads My milk hadn't come in yet so these weren't necessary! 
- Breast pump (still debating on which one to get!) You absolutely do not need one at the hospital
Always Discreet Underwear & or Thin pads/pantyliners These were amazing for postpartum at home but not needed at the hospital
-  Flip flops (for the shower, also love these & they are under $10!)
- Towel ( I heard the hospital towels are super hard) I didn't even shower at the hospital because 1- we weren't there long and 2-  I was in so much pain I could barely walk much less shower
- Toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste, brush, makeup removing wipes, chapstick, deodorant, face wash, moisturizer, contacts, dry shampoo, travel size shampoo & conditioner, lotion, body wash, makeup
- Mints 
- Prenatal Vitamins

Thinking about: 

- Dermoplast (in case the hospital doesn't provide it) they provided this
- Mini fan  a MUST HAVE, I used it during labor, after labor,  in the middle of the night!
- Magazine no lol, I didn't have time to read a magazine. Any free time I had was spent sleeping! 
Waterbottle They provided this! 


- Change of clothes
- Toiletries: toothbrush, deodorant 
Portable Bluetooth Speaker This was amazing for when we played my playlist during labor
- Book


- Camera We just used our phones!
- Health insurance cards
- Cash/ credit cards
- Snacks (ex. trail mix, granola bars, fruit, animal crackers)
- File folder for paperwork
- Photo IDs
- Thank you cards & gifts for nurses They loved these! Make sure to check out my story highlights to see the basket I made!
