I meant to post this before I had Everly, but I ended up being one of those women whose water breaks and then she has to scramble to pack a hospital bag with a towel shoved between her legs. Yep, that was me. I had slowly been placing things that needed to be packed in the pack n play in our closet, but hadn’t finished yet and hadn’t actually packed anything. That’s why the picture looks so disorganized – because I literally threw the rest of the stuff in there, took the picture, and then shoved it all in my bag. So don’t end up being me. Check out the list of things I packed and get going!
For during labor and delivery:
For after baby is born:
Nursing tanks (Motherhood Maternity)
Nursing bra (Motherhood Maternity)
Nursing cardigan (Motherhood Maternity)
Pajama pants (Motherhood Maternity)
Soothies gel pads
I actually used most of these things! The only things I didn’t use were the bathing suit top because I didn’t end up using the birthing tub, the bluetooth speaker because I didn’t want to listen to anything at all during labor, nursing bras because I wore the tanks, the soothies gel pads because I didn’t need them, and the belly bandit because I was too swollen for it to fit. Everything else I needed and used. If I had to do it again, I’d pack the exact same things! I know y’all are thinking, “Even the Depends?” I thought the same thing. But YES, the Depends!! The giant hospital pads are ok, but the pads can move around, unlike the depends. That’s just my opinion. Take it or leave it. (Take it!)
