Hospital Bag Must Haves

Nesting and baby prep is in full force over at my house for the next couple of weeks and with baby girl making her debut at anytime, I wanted to make sure I got my hospital bag ready to go. My last pregnancies I felt like I brought way to much to the hospital so this time I am going pretty light. Most hospitals provide everything you will need so I am just bringing the things that I feel will make me and baby more comfortable.

I am only bringing one bag and it is not just a bag it is the master bag! Seriously the Lily Jade Elizabeth diaper bag is amazing. It has so many pockets and and an organizer insert that is perfect to fit everything that I will need for the hospital and then easily transition right into a diaper bag. Below is my checklist of what I am packing but everyone is different and has certain things that will make labor and the hospital stay go more smoothly. I am sure I will be having my husband pick up some forgotten items along with a diet coke or two.

 

For Mom

  • Robe
  • Nursing bras
  • Big dark underwear
  • Comfy pajamas or nightgowns with easy nursing access
  • Cozy socks
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, lotion, makeup)
  • Hair ties and brush
  • Going home clothes

For Baby

  • Sleeper
  • Hat
  • Swaddles and Blanket
  • Booties
  • Extra onesies
  • Socks
  • Binky
  • Binky clip
  • Bows (because I can’t wait to accesorize my baby girl)
  • Carseat and carseat cover
  • Nursing pillow

Diaper bag must haves

It will be about five years since I have had a newborn so I feel like I am starting all over and I am quickly remembering how much newborns need. Luckily I have some pretty awesome mommy friends that can give me some tips and tricks to the modern day newborn must haves. I must admit going from boys to a girl I am really getting into all things girly and pink and it is so much fun.

I decided to start on some diaper bag essentials.  I am not a big bag or purse person, in fact I usually try to carry as little as possible and I don’t need much with a 8 and 4 year old.  Now I am trying to put together a diaper bag where I will have quality essentials at hand, yet still keep things pretty simple.  Here is a few things I have gotten so far. I know there will probably need to be more added in the future but I love all these products and feel I am headed in the right direction.

  1. Nursing/Car seat cover from Covered Goods. I am so excited about these! When I had my boys they didn’t have anything like this that I knew of. I feel like I was having a constant fight with a blanket for feeding or covering the carseat. This 4 in one nursing cover does it all and is amazing. If you haven’t seen these make sure to check them out. I can’t wait to use mine.
  2. Water – Hydration is key!
  3. Lulu and Roo Sleeper For an extra change of clothes. I am in love with this sleeper especially how easy they are to take off and on for when you are out and about. I am pretty sure I will have one in my bag at all times.
  4. Wipes– Of course you can’t leave the house without them.
  5.  I can’t even stand how cute these bibs are from Billy bibs. I die!!!
  6. Cozy toy- both my boys did better when they had a friend to snuggle in their car seat and I just love these cute and cuddly friends from Blabla Kids
  7. Pacifier and pacifier clip- I feel like this is another must have. Ryan and Rose have so many cute clip  options.
  8. Diapers– I just lose it when I see newborn diapers. Ahhh!!! So damn cute and small!
  9. Cute bows- Because she is my baby girl and she needs lots of bows.
  10. Bottles– Have you guys ever tried glass bottles? I am super excited to try these out from Natursutten I have heard a lot of good things about them and I love their brand.
  11. Teether– I love that this cute ice-cream teether from Loulou Lollipop has a clip so it won’t get lost.
  12. Another cute teether from Loulou Lollipop
  13. Note books– because I need to write things down so I don’t lose my mind (I mean lose what I have left) I got these extra cute ones at Paper Crush.
  14. Sun screen/lotion– Something that I always forget is to sunscreen the family. I just need to cary this around so I always have protection for my family from the sun. I love Aveeno because it is so moisturizing I can double it as lotion and sunscreen, and it is safe for baby which is a plus.
  15. Super soft and stretchy blanket from Lulu and Roo. why? Because it is the best blanket ever! This is also something that will be in my bag at all times.
  16.  And of course a totesavvy  with lots of pockets to keep everything organized and easy to get to.
