Here's what you see:
Boppy with cover
His baby book for footprints and hospital tags
2 pairs of slippers and flip flops - yes, I overpack
Travel toiletries - to save room
Yoga pants and tee shirt for coming home
Underwear - not good ones for...ya know...after
Nursing Tank and 2 nursing sport bras
Fold over yoga skirt - I plan on wearing the skirt and sports bra for delivery. Not a fan of the hospital gown. There's a website where you can order a "birthing" skirt for like $40. Yeah, I got this one at Old Navy for $12. It's the same thing.
Coconut oil - for massage.
Essential oils - Clary Sage, Peppermint, and Lavender - all for helping keep me relaxed, ward of nausea/vomiting and help with pain relief
Nursing cover - my cousin Becky made it for me (see top left of suitcase with cute flower attached). It's from her line - Baby Jo. She makes tons of great stuff!
Snacks - Mixed nuts, Gatorade to keep my fluids up
Rice plus old sock - heat it up and helps with pain relief - just not instant rice!
Possibly movies/music if necesssary
**We live 5 min from the hospital. Nathan or mom can make a run for us if necessary.
Stuff to grab on the go - Pillows, iPod, iPad, headphones, phone, charger, camera, camera charger, contact case, glasses, other random toiletries.
Here is what made it into his bag:
**We'll also take my breastpump to learn how to use it.
|Bag - Target laptop bag for $35 bought on clearance like 2 years ago. =)|
|Lanolin (breast cream), Disposable nursing pads (just in case), a few diapers and wipes although I know the hospital provides these, scratch mittens, 2 receiving blankets, 2 burp cloths and several disposable ones.|
|A few hats to choose from|
|Here are several sleeper options for him. I love the navy one with the guitar in it, but we'll see what he fits into.|
|0-3 months outfit - only if he's huge! Which we're thinking not.|
|Possible coming home outfit. Elephant onesie with pants and sleeper.|
|This will probably be the outfit. I love the giraffe look plus cutie cardigan.|
