Speaking of Mother's Day, today I'm sharing Can't Live Without It: Hospital Bag edition. Also included, what I could have lived without.
As expected, I over-packed. I always over-pack so why would packing for the hospital to give birth to a tiny human be any different?
Learn from my mistakes and pack light! Especially if you live 2 miles from the hospital like I did and can just send your tired but super sweet husband home to grab some things. :)
What could have been left behind: big underwear (I used the awesome mesh ones from the hospital, way better at holding down the fort with that whole situation you've got going on), robe (I never put this on, maybe because I was already wearing long sleeves), hair dryer (the last thing I felt like doing was standing in front of a mirror blow drying my hair)
What could have been left behind: pacis (we waited a couple of days before introducing a paci), onesies (so effing hard to put on a floppy newborn), burp cloths (just didn't use these for some reason), socks (unless using at mittens, then keep them)
No need for diapers or wipes, unless you have a specific brand you want to use.
What could have been left behind: This nursing pillow (It did not work for me AT ALL, I actually used regular pillows at the hospital. I wish I could go back and tell my 9 month prego self to leave this in its box at Babies R Us)
So there you have it. Mamas, what would you add or subtract from your hospital bag?!
I hope you all have a fab weekend!
