hospital bag essentials

oh bebe

Tminus 2 days at #40weeks my bag is fully packed. Half of these items I had with my first son 3 years ago and then there were some now added that I didn’t even know existed then or that I would need them. Providing links for easy shopping and see full packing list in previous post.

For me: I love this overnight bag for the many pockets and the separate bottom zippered component where I store shoes and chargers. My favorite water bottle. The best maternity leggings I have worn all pregnancy, fully supportive with two leg side pockets perfect for your phone and keys. I plan to wear these in post partum and thereafter. They have held up so well, I bought a second pair. Nursing pajamas. This is something I didn’t have with my first and knew I needed this time. I breast fed for 13 months and so the investment for comfortable nursing clothes is a must. This is one of 3 pair I bought from amazon. They are super soft and the fit is comfortable and flattering. I returned the others as I am super picky and neither fabric nor fit were good on the other two. I prefer shopping in stores but during this time have to rely on e-commerce. Striped nursing top H&M. Gripper socks. Booby tubes I would keep in freezer for inbetween feedings, breastfeeding hurts a lot in the beginning and those first few days in hospital with proper treatment might help. I also packed a small container of coconut oil as nipple butter which is organic and safer for baby than what the hospital provides. Milk savers. again not something I knew I needed with baby #1 but I would leak as the baby fed on the opposite side, every last drop of milk can be saved and they also protect your wardrobe daily.

For the baby: PJ onesie. Brother onesie, a gift from my sister. Hat. Booties. Mittens. Owl sound machine, this portable little player is so easy to travel with it! Bandana bib. Burp cloths. Car seat & nursing cover. Muslin swaddle.
