I’m 39 weeks now and I finally got my hospital bag packed. I put it off for quite some time, but I do feel so much better now that it’s done. The Catalina Deluxe Bag from Lo&Sons saved the day again and made it so simple for me to pack all of the necessities for the baby and myself.
I obviously haven’t done this in a few years, so I asked all of you for some advice on what to pack. I do remember when I had Caroline, I packed way too much. I think I even packed magazines. Joke is on me!
The Catalina Deluxe Bag has different compartments nestled within it, so I have a place for my things and the baby’s things.
The Catalina has a bottomed zippered section where you could put shoes or anything you’d like. I decided to use this section for the baby’s outfits, swaddle, formula and bottles.
I have plenty of room in the main part of the bag for my toiletries, clothes; and you can’t forget comfy socks! Speaking of toiletries, Aillea Beauty made it easy for me with packing for the hospital. I use the same cosmetic bag that is filled with travel essentials from Aillea for the gym, trips and now the hospital. I just replenish it when I run out.
Here’s a list of exactly what I packed this go around:
Ollie Swaddle: I used the Ollie with Charlie and brought it to the hospital. It was great to get him used to it right from the start, so I plan on doing the same with this baby.
Muslin Blanket for pictures.
Two gender neutral outfits
Two different types of bottles
LAKE robe- I’ve actually had this robe for 5 years now. I wore it at the hospital when I had Charlie.
A comfy dress to wear home
Yogasleep portable sound machine (yes for me and the baby, especially when the nurses are in and out of my room)
Comrad compression socks
