Are you a mom or mom-to-be preparing for an upcoming hospital stay to have a baby? I am a mom to a 19-month-old little boy and I could go into labor any day now with our second child. I wanted to share with you my list of Hospital Bag Essentials for Mom and Baby. Please note these are items that work for me. They may work for you, they may not.
I had a c-section with my son and will deliver this baby via c-section. I’m a blogger and a tech gadget junkie, even when I’m at the hospital having a baby! Again, you may think I’m crazy that I’m taking extension cords and almost every electronic device I own, but it’s what works for me.
*If you’d like the PDF file of this checklist, leave a comment with your email address and I will send it to you.
A few items you often see on “hospital packing lists” that I did not take with me the first time, nor did I need or do I plan to take the second time:
Other Labor Tools
Birth Plan – I was prepared for what should and could happen, but I did not want to set myself up for disappointment if things didn’t go “my way.”
Diapers, Formula, Wipes – Unless you already have specific brands you want to use.
Jack’s Big Brother Bag Includes:
Personalized Big Brother Shirt
I’m a Big Brother Book
Crayola Color Wonder Color & Go
Pouches and Snacks
A Lovie as a Gift from Jack to the Baby. Jack helped wrap it.
Plush Photo Album for him to show off his new sister.
