Congratulations you are having a baby, and while the past 37 or so weeks were spent prepping for your bundle of joy. Now it’s time to take the attention off of the baby, and pack your bag as you head off to the hospital to deliver. Here’s a list of things that I came up with, so that you wouldn’t have to.
Personal Care items
body wash, lotion, deodorant, tooth brush and paste, a gloss or balm for dry lips, sanitary napkins (the extra absorbent kind), breast pads, nip stick, comb and brush, ponytail holders, shampoo and conditioner
Go for comfy, and stylish in the lounge wear department, preferably something that buttons in the front so that you can have access to your boobage should you need it in a hurry. The reason I say this is because for the next several weeks your going to be sporting your granny’s panties, bound and gagged in girdles, and a wearing nursing bra. Not exactly Victoria’s Secret…which could be the reason your packing your bag in the first place, but that’s a very different blog post.
Please bring several of the items listed in the paragraph, a girl needs options…after all you and baby will have quite a few visitors, and you’ll want to look your best.
Slippers and a robe are always nice to have, socks for potentially chilly feet.
Crossword puzzle, Sudoku, or playing cards to distract you as you wait patiently for your bundle of joy to arrive.
Your phone book. You’ll need it to give your family and friends the great news.
Don’t forget your camera. You will need pictures to capture your babies first moments on earth.
Pen and paper. Just incase you have to write something.
Off the top of my head…this about covers it. This list is for Mama’s only, we know baby will be taken care of. If I’ve left anything out please share your thoughts and comments.
