Hospital Bag

Oh, the hospital bag! It's probably a Type A teacher thing, but I was SO excited to pack the hospital bag! I have had it packed for at least a month...just in case! There are tons of lists and suggestions of what you should bring to the hospital. I wanted to keep it simple because the reality is we will be gone probably 1-3 nights and we really don't need that much stuff! Plus, with family around anyone can bring us anything and let's not forget that the hospital has the necessities! 




I packed one big bag with things for my husband and I and one bag for the baby!




 I used these clear bags for packing each of our items! They were just the bags that baby's bedding came in, but they were super handy for packing and you can see through them! 




Here is what is inside our bag:

For Us:

  • A Gallon Sized Ziploc Bag with Toiletries: I just grabbed travel sized items that we would need like toothpaste, face wash, deodorant, etc. Don't forget these or these
  • Snacks: We just grabbed some of our favorites 
  • Phone Chargers: I got these super long cords since I have no idea how far the plug will be from my bed!
  • A Diffuser and Essential Oil: This is totally not a necessity, but since we already had it I decided to go ahead and bring it with us! 
  • Bluetooth Speaker: I have been perfecting my labor playlist for weeks! I have to have music! This is the speaker we have. It's super portable and the charge lasts a looooong time!


For Daddy:

  • A hoodie: While I am not expecting to have a C section, it's always a possibility. The OR rooms are kept super cold, so better safe that sorry! You never know what the temperature of any hospital room might me!
  • A button down shirt for skin to skin
  • A change of clothes or two
  • Comfy clothes for sleeping
  • Wireless Headphones and iPad: This might end up being for me too! 

For Mommy:

  • A nursing robe: I bought a Mommy Robe from Posh Peanut that will match baby's swaddle! It is super soft and stretchy!
  • A nursing bra: I bought this set of three. I liked the V neck cut, it felt less uni-boobie than most nursing bras. 
  • Nursing Pads: No explanation needed here. Some hospitals may have these, but they were specifically mentioned in the child birth class we took at the hospital as a must bring item so I am bringing them! I ordered a box, but just grabbed a few to bring!
  • A Button Up Sleep Shirt: It may be easier to just wear the hospital gown, but I am bringing a comfy sleep shirt just in case I want it! The one I got is from Target, but no longer available. 
  • Socks with Grips: One of my sisters gave me a Bump Box that came with a super cute pair to wear! 
  • Going Home Clothes: I packed some joggers and a maternity shirt to wear home! I should probably throw in a ball cap too! 
  • Other toiletries just for me: Chapstick, lotion, hairbrush...
  • Breastfeeding Pillow: So I actually have two! This one and this one! I am going to bring the My Breast Friend pillow into the hospital and leave the Boppy in the car! 





For Baby Girl:

Mitten, Socks and Hats: All of these things are SO teeny, tiny that I stored them in one of these small bags mesh bags.




I actually bought this set of mesh bags to wash her socks and mittens in so they don't get lost in the washer. It has worked SO well! 
Baby Nail File: One of my besties is a Mother and Baby Nurse and she said this is one of the most asked for items that they don't have! I'm obsessed with everything this brand makes, so I know I will love this nail set too. 
Swaddles: I
Clothes: I brought Newborn and 0-3 month sized clothes! I didn't 
Headband Bows: I got this set and this set. They are perfect newborn head size! You can't beat the price either! Now that I look at the picture, I am apparently bringing five bows to the hospital. I have waited a long time for a little bow head! 
Car Seat Cover/ Nursing Cover: I love the ones from Cooper Pearl! 
Baby Book: I LOVE our baby book! I carry it in my store, Gingerbread Home and Holiday. 
First Photo Props: There are so many cute ideas out there for baby's first picture! I am using a little "Hello! My Name Is:" tag!


Here are a few other items that are in the "take to the hospital" pile:

  • Infant Car Seat: Duh! After a long search, we finally settled on this one.  We already have the protector and base in the car!

  • A Wreath for the Hospital Door: I received this adorable wreath as a gift at one of my showers and I absolutely LOVE it. It has a place for me to write all of baby's stats too! I packed these to write with! It will hang on her nursery door once we get home! 


  • A Snack Basket for the Nurses: I bought the bucket at Dollar Tree and just filled it with snacks!
After I have Baby Girl, I will be sure and update with any thing I missed! : )

  5. Academic writing is clear, concise, focussed, structured and backed up by evidence. Its purpose is to aid the reader’s understanding.
    It has a formal tone and style, but it is not complex and does not require the use of long sentences and complicated vocabulary.
    Each subject discipline will have certain writing conventions, vocabulary and types of discourse that you will become familiar with over the course of your degree. However, there are some general characteristics of academic writing that are relevant across all disciplines.

  9. There are so many types of essays; it can be hard to know where to start. History papers aren’t just limited to history classes. These tasks can be assigned to examine any important historical event or a person. While they’re more common in history classes, you can find this type of assignment in sociology or political science course syllabus, or just get a history essay task for your scholarship.

    What is a political essay? A political is just as the name suggests an essay based on politics or a political situation. Completing a political essay is impossible without the proper research to fully understand your subject. First, you should study the primary texts, to analyze its contents. You may take advantage of using reliable Internet sources, with available government reports and political parties' news. Scan through reputable newspapers and magazines to compile relevant data for your political essay. Find more political essay at http://writing-a-thesis.net/

  10. Basically, the technology essay replicates the structure and the main principles of a standard essay with a few peculiarities of its own.
    We offer you to study the procedure of writing the technology essays on a concrete example. Let's suggest your topic sounds something like "Influence of Modern Technology on Society". The goal of your custom essay is to describe and discuss complicated relations between technology and society. You are to clarify how some particular technology affects people. You are free to illustrate the influence on any sphere of modern life that your technology has affected most.

    First of all, people describe technology as ever-changing. Today new innovations become obsolete fast. People have become increasingly competitive and every year, new ideas and technologies are released to challenge the ones in the market. In a few months, a piece of technology can be released to the market and almost immediately rival companies will as well release theirs. Technological ideas keep getting unleashed as the world becomes more involved in exploring and utilizing the resources nature provides. Nothing seems to survive this fast paced world and unless one maintains the pace and moves with the wave, they get left behind..Read more about technology at http://thesisacknowledgement.net/

In fact, we can take all the stress and hard work out of writing, so that you are free to get on with whatever else you choose to do

    You may decide to try and buy a sociology research paper online somewhere but you need to be aware of some things. Those sites will offer sociology papers for sale but they have been sold to hundreds of other people. You have no idea where those papers came from and who wrote them. You do not know the academic level of the writer and chances are you will have to spend time tweeking the paper to your professor’s specifications. For that kind of hassle you might as well just write the paper yourself.

  19. The main purpose of education is to help students gain the knowledge and skills so that they will be able to function in society. Students need to be provided with the necessary skills so that they can learn to become productive citizens. There are many advantages that are associated with receiving an education. Students will be able to contribute to their community and help make it a better place to live. Education basically helps shape society because it helps students learn to become more sociable and helps them develop relationships with their peers. Students will be more qualified for different job positions if they have a good solid education. Education is vital to each student’s life, therefore, by working hard to provide the best instruction possible will help train students to become future leaders and will lead to a better life.
    Education is essential to every student’s life as well as their future. Students can have a prosperous life by receiving a good quality education. My thoughts are that students need to learn from the books along with other various materials just as I did while growing up. The classroom curriculum should be decided by their teacher and the teacher should set clear goals as to what is expected from the students. Students should work hard to achieve their goals because it will certainly be worth it in the end. According to essentialism, ‘Schools should not radically try to reshape society but schools should transmit traditional moral values and intellectual knowledge that students need to become model citizens’. Read about education help at School Uniforms benefits . The school should stress the importance of values because some children are not taught these at home. Teaching children good values helps build their character and helps them become respectable people. In regards to education, I think society is important because this is a place where we all live so we should work to make it a better place.
