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!

  3. Or on the other hand, simply hang out by the medical caretaker's station for briefly. In the event that it looks and seems like mayhem and there are a great deal of cancel catches going and nobody replying, this is a warning. sterile instruments

  4. All clinics don't charge the equivalent for same or comparable administrations. Shock! Things being what they are, in what manner can you examination shop between medical clinics? One way is contact the medical clinic relationship for your state and solicitation that data. sterile instruments
