What’s In My Hospital Bag

When I was pregnant with Greyson I went into my doctors office at 35weeks for pain. They sent me straight to the hospital from the office because they were convinced I had a kidney stone. Welp, SURPRISE! It was an 18in blood clot. I was immediately admitted and had nothing with me. Not only did I have nothing with me I had nothing even packed and ready at home. There were a lot of facetime calls between my mom and I as she tried to gather items for me. I was there for almost 3weeks so trust me when I say there were A LOT of facetime calls haha… Not this time folks! I am determined to be prepared.

I will say, in general, less is more when it comes to packing your hospital bag. The hospital was really great about giving me a ton of supplies post baby. However, I am a scheduled c-section and am in the hospital for a bit so I would love to have some comforts of my own from home. That being said, my list is probably a little longer than a mom who is going in and leaves 48hrs later! The big thing is that with either birth, c-section or vaginal, I wouldn’t bring anything to wear that you REALLY love, is light colored or expensive. Main reasons being hospital germs (ick), bleeding, milk leakage and newborn spit up. Thats a lot of ‘stuff’ to stain or ruin clothes… trust me haha.

As a first time mom when I had Grey he had WAY to many newborn outfits. I quickly learned that even with the cutest of outfits he was swaddled up tight and sleeping most of the day anyway. Don’t get me wrong. Baby sister has a solid collection of newborn outfits but I decided to go more the route of extra blankets as obsessed to a billion outfits she will outgrow in 10min.

ME:

-Phone Charger
-Computer/Computer Charger to watch movies (Recently I was informed that the tv’s at Prentice are compatible with firestick as well so you can always bring that!)

-Slippers
Robe
