A month or two before my due date I started pinning away hospital bag items I would need. Needless to say I left the house with a large bag and small carry on suitcase. Guess what? I didn’t use 80% here are the items I actually used.All your “down there” items will be available at the hospital. The most important thing on this list was the pillows and the blanket. Hospital ones are beyond unusable. They will also provide diapers and wipes for baby.
I brought stuff to shower and wash my hair but lets be real I was not able to even think of showering. More power to the women that were able to do so. I was glad I packed a little bit of makeup because I was able to freshen up before guests arrived. My go to was of Hoola Bronzer and the Fenty Universal Lip gloss. A toiletry bag is also a must. It will help you to feel a little more human when you brush your teeth and put deodorant on. Our hospital allowed us to bring an essential oil diffuser. If definitely helped during labor and the stay afterwards feel more like home. Shop my favorites below.
