Hospital Bag is packed!

So the bag is basically packed. Give or take a few last minute things. As well as the usual – maternity bras, basic clothes, nappies, toothbrush etc these are the items I am packing which I wish I had the first time round or things that will hopefully make my stay a little more comfortable.

This is what I will be including

  • Cotton button up nighties. I still have these from when I was in hospital with Coco. Similar one here.
  • Recovery compression shorts
  • Bathroom slides and other slippers
  • High-waisted underwear. I am trying out these Kin Fertility ones this time, previously I had these Bonds ones. Even the midwives said how good they were!
  • ANY type of sheet masks, face masks, eye masks. I love the James Cosmetics ones
  • Lip Balm and a nice hand cream
  • Old school earphones, not airpods for when I am up feeding. I like to listen to podcasts.
  • Omnilux LED Mask
  • Dyson Airwrap
  • New fancy Mini skincare set from Tata Harper
  • Nice body wash and cream (that first shower is a dream)
  • 1-2 baby wraps and basic singlets/tops
  • ALL the feeding essentials ie. Hydrogel patches, Silverette shields, Mustela Nursing Comfort Balm
  • A little but of make up
  • Eyemask
  • My new Stanley Cup for all the water you have to drink when feeding. This is the US size, but a smaller version is available here in Australia
  • Snacks – no one tells you how hungry you get when you’re up feeding
  • Extension chord and powerbank – so random but I remember the only powerpoint being a mile away from the bed when you needed to charge your phone
  • Phone charging cable (of course)
  • My Hill House robe. I cannot wait to get into this beauty

Anything else I am missing? Let me know!
