Just hit week 36! Only a few weeks shy from meeting our baby boy. It’s hard to imagine that almost 3 years ago my hospital bag was filled with pink, purple, bows, and tutus. Now, all I see in it is blue and green! I keep hearing how different it will be with a boy and I honestly couldn’t be any more excited to experience it first hand. The truth is, I’ve had my hospital bag packed since I was 30 weeks pregnant! Just a tad bit early.
This time, I packed lighter than the first time around. I know what my essentials are and what I can do without. Here is a sneak peak of my hospital bag.
- shower sandals
- nursing bra/nursing camis
- comfy clothes
- toiletry items and makeup
- lip balm
- belly wrap/bandit
- change of clothes
- receiving blanket
- nursing pillow
- going home outfit
- burp cloths
- baby book (visitors can sign and you can get baby’s foot/handprint)
- cars seat
- phone + pharger
- camera + charger
- gift for big sister from baby
As far as the necessities post-birth (diapers, pads, mesh undies, and nursing pads) our hospital provides all of that so less to worry about when it comes to packing.
Next time I post we’ll be a family of 4! I cannot wait to hold my little bundle of joy.
What did all my fellow mamas pack in your hospital bag?
