As we inch closer to this due date i’m starting to feel like we’re getting more and more prepared with due time. No the nurseries still not QUITE complete yet, but it is definitely making its way. A different step that was stressed of equal importance for us was the hospital bag.  From mommies goodies, to daddies goodies, to baby’s goodies it is definitely beginning to feel like Santa’s bag of toys for the whole family. 
So here’s a list of what I have included in my hospital bag:

For Mom
  • Victoria Secret christmas pajamas & slippers (have to go with the festive ones for the holiday! p.s. they also open in the front making it easy for breast feeding!)
  • Overnight nursing bra (2)
  • Outfit to go home (using my maternity sweats since they say you still look pregnant when leaving)
  • Dermaplast, moms bottom spray, lanolin cream, etc
  • Massage Roller (to counteract back labor pains) 
  • Lavender essential oil/ lotion
  • Music playlist created by dad for mom
  • Chargers
  • Personal pillow (y’all know how I am with establishment provided linen)
  • Toothbrush/ toothpaste
  • Shower shoes 

For Baby 

  • Outfit for day in hospital
  • Going home outfit
  • Baby emery board (was told sometimes they come out with long nails!)
For Dad
  • Pajamas 
  • Change of clothes outfit 
  • Chargers
  • Toothbrush/ toothpaste
  • Cash
  • Snacks

Similar to Santa, I’ve made my list and checked it twice, but I’m sure there are still some items I’ve left off. If anybody has any other items to add or take away I am all ears! 

See ya!
