Five on Friday [hospital bag edition] // 7-14-17

When I packed my hospital back in preparation for Emberly’s birth, I looked around to see what other moms found important to take with them. Even after only packing the “necessities”, I still didn’t end up using most of what I brought. But here are five things in my hospital bag that I actually used.

ONE // Lip balm. I rarely go anywhere without lip balm anyway, but since hospital air is so dry, this was a life saver during labor and the rest of our hospital stay.

TWO // Comfortable outfit. For me, this included compression leggings and a soft, loose shirt. Much more comfortable than those beautiful hospital gowns and I felt a little more presentable for visitors.

THREE // Maternity/nursing tank bras. These ones offer great support and made nursing and everything involved with nursing easier and more comfortable.

FOUR // Boppy Nursing Pillow. This made nursing so much easier and my arms didn’t get tired from holding the baby.

FIVE // Snacks. While the hospital food was ok, I still got hungry between meals (especially during the night!) and it was wonderful to have a few snacks and candy around.

What was your favorite hospital bag necessity?
