12 Things I ACTUALLY used in my hospital bag!

Maternity Gown by Baby Be Mine: I believe this was one of my best purchases for the simple reason I felt less than pretty during the whole labor process and having a pretty and comfortable gown made me feel so much better about myself! They also have buttons all the way down the back and up on your chest so you can have an epidural and skin to skin time with baby! There not that expensive and they come in multiple colors and patterns to choose from! Plus they have matching outfits for your little one! Click link to shop! DSC09255

“Ready Set Push” socks by Baby Be Mine: another product from Baby Be Mine I loved. No it is not necessary but they are very comfy and super cute! The lettering on the bottom is also a non slip grip and they come in either pink or blue. Click link to shop!

The mom washer by Frida Baby: go ahead and thank me now!! This is by far the BEST thing I purchased! After you have given birth you obviously can not wipe down there and the hospital will give you something similar but it is a pain to use! This makes it so easy and you will be so so so happy you purchased it! Click link to shop!

Witch Hazel pads by Tucks: this may be TMI but after birth you will experience a lot of burning and pain! This will soothe it for the time being. Click link to shop!

Hanes Oversized underwear: another great purchase I’m so thankful I had! Way better than the mesh underwear they give you and you can toss them when you get home! I recommend going one or two sizes up! Click link to shop!

A set of cute pajamas: okay no this is not necessary but it made me feel so much better the next day when I took a shower and could get into them! Target has tons of cute and soft pajamas and most you can easily breastfeed in! I will link the ones I got! Click link to shop!

Lanolin Nipple Cream: my hospital provided it for me while I was there so I didn’t use the tube I packed but I recommend getting a tube for home. You will thank me. Click link to shop!

Shampoo, Conditioner, & Body Wash Contaniers: something you may not think about! I got a whole set cheap on amazon! Click link to shop!

My own towel: the ones at my hospital were small and scratchy so I brought my own soft towel!

My own Pillow & Pillowcase: the pillows at my hospital were awful and small! Not comfortable at all for a woman in labor! So I brought quite a few pillows from home: Recommendation: Baby Be Mine has a matching pillowcase for your gown! I wish I would have gotten one but I will for sure on the next go around!

Nursing Bras: GET THESE! right now lol! Even if your not breastfeeding they are so comfortable and if you are breastfeeding they work wonderful! I found my pack of 5 for only $30 which is an absolute steal! I recommend sizing up on size if you decide to breastfeed! Click link to shop!
