Well with less then 2 weeks to go i thought its about time i finish packing my hospital bag I still have my list from last time saved up on my computer but I guess I leave a few things off this time and might have another few items I find more useful or forgot about it last time although knowing me I will over pack again there was nothing I didn’t have last time.
Little Evian Water Bottles – i bought a few and stuck them in the freezer) & maybe pack a few straws
Flannel – was a godsend last time to have some of my ice water put on the flannel to cool me down
2 Nursing Bra´s
Sanitary Pads (Always Ultra Night)
Pillow (because lets face it the Pillows you get n the hospital are not designed for sleeping!)
BF Pillow – I will leave this in the Car for now because i wont need it if i don’t stay overnight or longer in the hospital
Small Charge for the Car park & a bit Money just in case
Camera (fully charged!)
List of People who you want to let know first
Toothbrush & Toothpaste
Contact Lenses, Liquid, Glasses
Lanisol Nipple Balm
3 pair of socks
which is actually thrown into my labour bag
(Let him pack it)
Small Charge for Car Park
Going Home Clothes for me: Comfy trousers,top and a hoodie
Maxi Cosi Carseat
Spare Sets of unisex clothes for Blob in case we have to stay longer then expected consisting of:
3 Sleep suits, 3 Vests, Hats, some more Nappy’s and a few Muslin’s
One of the best things i did last time was let him unpack and pack the ready packed bags so he can see where everything is, when you are in labour the last thing you want to do is hear from him “I cant find where did u pack it again?”
Another Tip as you can see in the pictures of my packed bag make yourself a few post-it notes of items who need to be packed last minute.
Now just in case i did forget something on my list i would love to hear your suggestions too anything you found very useful to have in your bag?
