Apparently I am late to the party because they suggest you start packing your hospital bag at around 35 weeks and I have 6 days until my due date and just finished packing yesterday. OPPS.
Since this is my third time around I knew I wanted to pack a separate hospital bag for baby boy. The previous times I just put my stuff and the babies things in the same suitcase. However when I received my Newlie designer diaper bag I knew that I wanted to put all of his items in the trendy satchel because first of all its super cute and secondly it would help me keep things more organized. Which is always helpful for a new mom.
Here are my top items to bring to the hospital for your new babe! I hope this helps you as you prepare to get ready to welcome your little miracle into the world.
You have probably seen me brag about how amazing this diaper bag is on my social media! I love this bag for several reasons! When I had my first baby almost 7 years ago I had my purse and my diaper bag and I brought them both with me wherever I went. Talk about a nightmare. I am so grateful that the designers of Newlie came up with their beautiful designer bags that look and feel like a high end purse but have all the functionality of a diaper bag complete with 1 exterior pocket and 7 interior pockets, and a roomy additional interior center pocket divider. The signature insulated pocket is perfect for bottles during the diaper years and then to snacks during the toddler years. It really is a must for mamas. I have the GAIL SATCHEL in black! This is the bag I used to pack all of the essentials for our little guy. Also take 15% off any diaper bag through 12/11/16! Use code: HOLIDAYS
All of my babies LOVED to be swaddled and the kb cute designs swaddle blanket and beanie set is the perfect soft and cozy blanket to bring for your new baby. I have the Plus Wonderland Swaddle Blanket and Beanie.
These are the only pacifiers I use because my kids love them and you can get them easily at Target or Walmart.
I love the travel sized gift set because it is perfect for bringing to the hospital. It includes all of the basics that you need for your new baby. The baby starter kit is what I brought and I loved every single product. We used the shampoo and body wash for babys first bath. Since we live in Colorado the weather makes our skin very dry so I love the lotion and creams to help with baby Finn’s sensitive skin.
Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash, 0.68fl. oz. (20 ml)
Calendula Diaper Care, 0.4 oz. (10.8 g)
Calendula Baby Cream, 0.34 oz. (10 g)
Calendula Lotion, 0.34 oz. (10 g)
Calendula Face Cream, 0.32 oz. (9 g)
I had to have this outfit from Sugar babies to bring our little guy home in. It will keep him warm and cozy and well its freaking adorable. Sugar Babies carries this out fit which you can purchase here.
Of course you will need diapers and wipes! I’ve always been a pampers lover usually the sensitive kind for the first few months. The hospital does provide them while you are there but you should have some on hand in your bag. There is nothing worse then being without those two items.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope this list helps any new mamas out there! Wishing you all the best in your delivery journey.
